Initial test footage with Canon SX1. Yes, I know it's cheesy as hell to put background music in videos.|
Ants: YouTube and Vimeo.
Bees: YouTube and Vimeo (not in HD due to restrictions on free Vimeo accounts).
Decisions, decisions... YouTube, which has marginal playback quality, is free with unlimited uploads... Vimeo, which has excellent playback quality, is free for one HD upload a week or you pay to get more. Hmm....
Overall, I'm pleased with the camera and the quality of the photos and videos it produces. My examples certainly aren't stellar, but I'm still getting used to driving the thing. Next weekend I'm definitely going to play around with it more, maybe head for a beach somewhere or something.
Also: I am absolutely going to make a string monopod for the trip. With a full loop of string, it could even be used as a mock duopod/tripod. Neat.
