Test Configurator for 2013 Dart with Halo Projector Headlights

As Dodge prepares the 2013 Dodge Dart with halo projector headlights for its spring release, the carmaker is testing the waters with a comprehensive pricing and features strategy for the model. p>

On the Dodge website, there’s now a test configurator for the model, which is for survey purposes only. The features, packaging and pricing are subject to change before the model goes on sale.

In a previous statement, Chrysler Group confirmed a starting price of $15,995 (not including the destination charge) for the Dart.

The Dodge Dart with halo projector headlights will be available in SE, SXT, Rallye, Limited and R/T trims. Features usually reserved for larger luxury vehicles like high-intensity-discharge headlights, an LCD digital gauge cluster and a heated steering wheel are just a few of the items on the Dart’s laundry list of available equipment.

Who knows if all the features will make it, but currently the Dart with halo projector headlights can be priced slightly north of $30,000 with the configurator, though we doubt that will remain when the real configurator goes online.

There are very few compact vehicles that crack the $30,000 threshold – even a fully loaded 2012 Ford Focus with self-parking feature stays beneath that price.

How To Stabilize Your Flip Ultra Hd Camcorder 4 Tips

With a beep, the Flip Ultra HD Camcorder is on and the green ready light is displayed. It even tells you how much recording time is left sweet. Then just push the red button to stop recording.

Below youll find some tips on how to use your camera, plus Ill show you where you can buy this superior product at a sale price.

Say youre just out and about and , if youre like me, youll have your camera with you. Since the Flip Ultra HD Camcorder only weighs 11 ounces, you have the camera ready just in case you see something to take a video of. However, you are not carrying your tripod.

4 Tips to Keep Your Camera More Stable (if you dont have a tripod).

1) Rope Support – Keep an 8×12 foot piece of rope in your auto or carry one with you. Form the rope in a loop, hang the rope over your lens near where it mounts to the camera body. Let the rest of the rope fall. Then place each foot along the rope on the ground. You can pull up with the camera to make the rope tight.

2) Firm Surface – Place your camera on a firm surface that’s at the same level you want to take your picture. Use a table, rock, pillow or bean bag. If you need to adjust the height of the lens — use a wallet or a small book.

3)Use Pressure – Find something immobile that you can lean against. A wall or a tree will do. Hold the camera against these objects to help the camera stay still.

4)Use Your Body – Position your body to give yourself a center of gravity. While standing, spread legs shoulder-width and shoot sideways. Or, work from a low angle, put one knee on the ground, elbow on the other knee and stick your arm straight up. Use your hand on that arm to support the camera.

Are You Losing Your Memory?

While you may have your flip video camera with you, you probably don’t have your home desktop computer hanging around. Maybe you could make it a habit to take your laptop with you and plug in your USB and — walla, you’ve got your videos uploaded.

If you are camping or traveling in a WiFi area, be sure you have an inverter. The inverter plugs into your laptop and allows you to charge it from the cigarette lighter. Go with an inverter that is built for powering portable electronics.

With the Flip Ultra HD Camcorder you don’t need to be a professional photographer nor a computer wiz. You simply take movies, connect this fantastic camcorder to the computer, edit and share — as they say keep it simple
