IPAD 4 & IPHONE 4s Battery Refresh

 Every now and then my Ipad and Iphone battery needs refreshing.

This observation is from my own experience.

Take note that both devices are used intensively. 

Iphone 4s with IOS Version 5.1.1
Owned since 2011 but battery was replaced in 2013 cause it was damaged due to heavy gaming while charging.

Ipad 4 with IOS Version 6.1.3
Owned since 2013

I was always charging them while turned ON but I do not use them while charging them anymore.

Firstly I was starting to notice that as soon as I unplugged the charger and after about 1 minute of use the battery meter showed 97%.

And Secondly

The Iphone starts to shut down usually when the battery meter is at 20%.

The Ipad shuts down at 3% to 7%, Yes I always try to use the most of my battery.


Plug the charger while the device is ON.
Make sure the device is being charged.
Turn off the device.
If you turn off the device first, it will turn ON automatically.

For any questions feel free to comment.

What I don't like about Nikon D4

 This kind of equipment is expensive and when I want or need to upgrade I expect the upgrades to worth this buy.

I own a D3 and when D4 was announced with 16 MP it got my attention. After reading all the specs I was seriously disappointed not to mention the price increase. Cars are getting better but the price sometimes gets even lower not higher.

I will list what things I don't like about Nikon D4.

  1. Record button near the shutter button: It's a camera not a camcorder, yes I know it can shoot 1080HD...
  2. Two new 'sub-selectors' on the rear: Nikon why you keep adding more awkward buttons to touch them accidentally and ruin my day?
  3. 2 Type of memory cards: If it was 2 XQD then it would be just fine. I trust Sony more than any other brand, from professional experience of course.
  4. Connectivity: Still USB 2.0, for real? come on...
  5. Price: $5,999.95, yes is a lot for me. D3s was $5,199.95. 

No I wont Buy a Nikon D4.

Thank you for reading.

24 Inches LED Monitors High Definition

2 Best Choices 




Their screen is LED, which means better quality in colors and brightness. The most important though is low power consumption. This 2  monitors consume no more than 28 Watts.

Their both 24 Inches, the response time is 2ms and their resolution is 1920 x 1080. I highlighted with red the vertical resolution to point out that is FULL HD. Their are plenty of monitors that are 1050, be careful with that. You can't change the resolution of LCD monitors and expect to be ok, is fixed. That's the only downside.

24 Inches Screen is pretty big, for me that I use photoshop it's also 1 of the best choice for size. Some will say is not too big. Spending too many hours on a screen is not good for the eyes so I will stick with 24, I wont buy bigger than that.

My choice is the LG, I tried to get one but is out of stock for now. I own a 22 inch LG and I' m happy with it. If I don't manage to buy the LG I will get the Samsung.

Both are great.

3 New superzoom compact cameras by Nikon

P500, S9100 and L120


Firstly L120 is out of my list, why? it needs 4 x AA batteries.  

It doesn't use Rechargeable Li-ion Battery.


Now for the remaining P500 and S9100

 Both Share the following:   

• 1/2.3" Type CMOS
• 12.1 million effective pixels

1080p HD movies with stereo sound

ISO sensitivity 160 - 3200

LCD monitor • 3.0 inch tilting LCD
• 920,000 dots
• Wide viewing angle TFT LCD monitor with anti-reflection coating
• 5 level brightness adjustment

Storage • SD/SDHC/SDXC

Connectivity • USB 2.0 Hi-Speed
• AV out (PAL / NTSC switchable)

Now main differences:

Even thought P500 has bigger zoom lens it's wider than S9100 and faster.
(35mm equiv) P500 22.5-810mm, S9100 25-450mm
P500 F3.4-5.7, S9100 F3.5-5.9

Minimum focus S9100 has the edge:

S9100 in Telephoto is Approx. 5 ft  (1.5 m) to infinity

P500 in Telephoto is Approx. 7 ft 3 in (2.2m) to infinity


In Macro Mode thought S9100 is better: 

S9100 Approx. 1.6 in (4 cm) to infinity (wide-angle position)

P500  Approx. 4 in. (10 cm) to infinity (wide-angle position)


S9100 can last longer:

S9100 Still pictures: Approx. 271 shots

P500 Still pictures: Approx. 220 shots 


I choose the P500 cause of it's bigger zoom lens and also wider. This cameras are superzoom so i wont bother about their macro capabilities.
