So it was a nice evening last night, and inspired by Chris Gerhard’s recent video effort I decided to hand-hold my Canon IXUS 900ti and see how far I could get homewards before I filled my 2Gb SD card.
All the way through the woods, and over the tank range, in turned out.
As an aside: getting the data off the card was problematic – the Mac swears that my 2Gb SD card is only 1Gb in size and gets horribly confused – various kernel modules crash – when trying to download the movies; similarly Picasa failed to do it under Windows, so eventually I slotted the card into a PCMCIA adapter, mounted it as a disk and got my Windows laptop to copy the data to the Mac via Samba. iMovie did the rest.
I’ll admit it’s not the most thrilling video, but it’ll make a change from the musical, perhaps sexier “flying along behind a fairing on a 2-wheel recumbent” videos that you find at The Recumbent Blog.
Plus the scenery’s nice, and the gorse flowers are lovely
If you don’t like the occasional camera shake, why don’t you try riding for 18 minutes, one-handed, cross country, on a two wheeler…
If you do like it, enjoy.
