Tokyo event: Video Blogging Night and Sanyo Xacti Touch-and-Try

Cost2,000 yen (Includes light buffet and chance to win one of 2 Xacti digital video cameras)

Andrew Shuttleworth, an Irishman who knows absolutely everyone in Tokyo (and I’m not exaggerating), is hosting this event in conjunction with Sanyo. Yukako “Tajee” Tajima, a bilingual video blogging major babe and businesswoman, will be giving a presentation on ways to put videos online.

I’m hoping it won’t be well attended because they’re giving away two Xacti digital video cameras and dammit, I want one. The fewer people who show up, the better my chances of winning the lottery. So stay home that night.

  1. I use to own a Sanyo Xacti, it’s pretty good during the day, but can get really depressing looking during night. The whole hybrid combo of a digital camera and a camcorder doesn’t mix with the Sanyo. The pictures are actually quite good, but the whole HD video concept of it kind of ruined my liking for it. I guess if you’re not looking to capture any HD video than this hybrid camera is decent to use. The portability of it is excellent though, I really enjoyed how lightweight and small it really is.

  2. I plan on going and look forward to meeting all the people in the web community. If I win the Xacti, you can have it as a charitable donation.

  3. Ken and I have been talking about setting something somewhat like this up – at the Pink Cow, no less – for over a year. Of course it’s Shuttleworth who beats us to it. The Pink Cow’s a pretty good place – Ken’s nijikai was there and we drop by every once in a while. Well, I drop by every once in a while. Ken’s a regular.

    Might be a good night out. My goal now is to win a Xacti, an item I’ve never before considered, just to spite people who want one.

    My other goal is to get big enough that I can act like a prima donna and make other people go up to the bar for me.

    Then I can feel all awkward and uncomfortable about it and embarrassed because people I can’t remember are calling me by name, and so on.

    You bringing mics and a recorder, Rich?

    I hadn’t thought about it, but OK.

    Did I mention Tagee’s a babe?

    If you win one of the cameras, I’m afraid you might get mugged on the way home by a tall but mysterious foreigner in a ski mask. I’d better escort you, just to be on the safe side.

  5. In what I can only call truly wonderful cosmic irony, I most enjoyed this event which I only learned about on this site after reading your scathing review of my show.

    Guess who won the camera? 🙂
