Islanders agree to terms with first-round pick Simon Holmstrom

Islanders agree to terms with first-round pick Simon Holmstrom The New York Islanders have agreed to terms with Simon Holmstrom on a three-year entry-level contract. Holmstrom was the team’s first pick, 23rd overall, in this June’s draft. As with many players taken in the back half of the first round, Holmstrom comes to the Islanders as a prospect with widely different potential outcomes. An excellent skater with and without the puck, he can dance through the competition or catch the opposition on the backcheck. He has had tons of success in the Swedish junior leagues, but has played only a pair of games in the SHL and is still quite raw.

Fujifilm has unveiled the entry - level X - A 7 with some key new features that make it a nice upgrade over its predecessor, the X - A 5. That gives it much faster autofocus speeds and quick face detection , though burst shooting speeds remain at 6 fps. For video , the X - A 7 can now handle 4 K at 30 fps

Fujifilm has unveiled the entry-level X-A7 with some key new features that make it a nice upgrade over its predecessor, the X-A5. It packs Fujifilm's latest 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor and has 8.5 times as many phase-detect pixels as its previous entry-level model, the X-A5, for starters. That gives it much faster autofocus speeds and quick face detection, though burst shooting speeds remain at 6 fps.

For video, the X-A7 can now handle 4K at 30 fps rather than being hobbled at 15fps like the last model, and Fujifilm said it has less rolling shutter, too (a possible jab at Sony). 1080p shooting speeds are limited to 60 fps, however. The ISO range runs from 100-12,800, though it can be expanded to ISO 25,600.

Senators sign first-round pick Lassi Thomson to three-year, entry-level contract

Senators sign first-round pick Lassi Thomson to three-year, entry-level contract The Ottawa Senators signed top draft pick Lassi Thomson to his three-year, entry-level contract. Thomson was selected 19th overall in last month’s draft and is expected to return to Finland this year after one season with the Kelowna Rockets of the WHL. Senators GM Pierre Dorion released a statement on the young defenseman: Lassi has great offensive instincts and an NHL-caliber shot. He also brings a high compete level – he’s always moving his feet and driving the pace of play. We came away from development camp in Ottawa very impressed and feel that he is going to be an important piece of our team’s future.

Then there is video - 4 K 10 -bit 60fps capture in camera, and 4:2:2 output via the HDMI. Throw in continuous face and eye detection when shooting video and this could be the camera that really launches Fujifilm in to the mirrorless video arena. And as soon as it is available on 20th September

With a small, attractive rangefinder body that weighs just 455 grams with a lens attached, the X-A7 will be easy to pack around. And while the X-A5 had a pop-up screen for selfies, the X-A7 has a fully-articulating touch display, making more useful not just for vlogging and selfies, but other types of shooting as well.

The screen is also the primary way to adjust settings for the camera, as the rear of the camera doesn't have many physical controls. By touching, tapping or swiping, you can change screen brightness, film simulation, and other effects.

Other features include Fujifilm's "Bright Mode" scene recognition tech, which applies HDR and other tricks to create bright, vivid images without the need for any fiddling. This is the kind of automatic mode that smartphone shooters are used to, so Fujifilm clearly thought this would be an important feature for novices who might buy an entry-level camera.

The Fujifilm X-A7 will cost $700 with a Fujinon XC 15-45mm f/3.5-5.6 OIZ PZ kit lens when it arrives in the US on October 24th. If you're looking to stand out a bit from the crowd, it comes with mint green and "camel" color options, along with the usual silver and dark silver. You'll also be able to get it in "navy" in some regions.

Greenville has only Electronic Detection K-9 in South Carolina.
Gearing up to sniff out suspicious stuff is just another day on the job for Queue, Greenville County sheriff's electronic detection K-9. "We've been as far down as Columbia. We've helped our local agencies here as far as Spartanburg, Anderson. We've been out on a couple of federal search warrants, as well," said Sgt. Michael Rainey, Queue's human partner at the Greenville County Sheriff's Office.
