A Glimpse of the Twestival Montreal 2010 event

I attended the Twestival 2010 event yesterday in Montreal. It was fun to mingle with Tweeple from Montreal. I chatted with familiar faces and met new ones. One of the activities was the photo booth. You can see on the picture my husband with his two business partners in Shwowp, a start up about social collaborative shopping.

Artists did a live painting session. We had DJs and an acoustic show by David Usher.

The event was at a venue that used to be a public bath. What is cool about Bain Mathieu is that the dance floor is located in the old pool while the DJs can overview the party from the ground level.

About the Camcorder I used: the Flip Mino HD

The Flip Mino HD is my latest gadget. I like it because it fits into any evening bag or the pocket of my coat. And you transfer the videos to either You Tube or Facebook at a touch of a button. Just make sure that you installed the latest FlipShare program to transfer your videos in HD. This is what I was looking for: lightweight (only 3.3 ounces) and ease of use.

Now that I have a super-slim, plug and go camcorder, I will be able to share the food and cool things I will see or do during my trip to Japan next month. I got the Flip Mino HD for free from Cisco via my friend Anne Morello who works at iPR Group, a PR agency in Toronto. So far, I am glad with the results. The show was shot in a low light situation and I am not good at holding a camera still for 11 minutes. This is why the images are not as sharp. But as you can see at the start of the above video, proper lighting delivers sharp images.

More Videos of David Usher’s Performance

I am a fan of David Usher. If you are, you will appreciate watching him performing more songs at the Twestival.

The last song of the set pleased his fans from the time of Moist. David sang an acoustic version of Push.

    Moi aussi j’adore ma Flip! Heureuse d’avoir pu profiter des performances de David Usher que j’adore aussi grâce à ta Flip! J’étais trop fatiguée hier soir pour aller au Twestival. J’ai quand même contribué en achetant mon billet à l’avance. Merci Kim.

    T’as fait personnaliser ta Flip?

      Nat, la mienne est juste noire. Elle n’est pas aussi belle que la tienne. Je vais voir après le voyage si je peux la faire personnaliser.
