New Toy

Hopefully, our boatiing vids will start getting better.
After the issue with my old Sony finally bit the bullet and bought a good camera. Ordered this one (with 2 year extended warranty) from onequality.com last week and it arrived yesterday. The GL2 isn't really rated as a HD camera but have already found out that if you shoot in 16:9 aspect ratio that it will render out to 1080p HDV.
Now I just need some fast moving boats to test it out on.

Nice camera, Bill.

The solo boat runs you see in here are more or less from our "test n tune" days.

When we're racing all the boats in the class go in the water together. We run a mill lap (1/2 lap) to the start finish line. After the start, the heat is 6 laps long and the 1st across the finish line is the winner.

Not to worry Chris. This one works pretty much the same way. About the only major difference in operation is this one makes you want to use 2 hands. It is a bit heavier. The color viewfinder (in the eyepiece) on this one is kind of nice too.

Thanks Foamaholic. Nice to know out efforts to entertain aren't in vain.

Looks as if there's going to be a learning curve with the new camera. It puts out high resolution video but seems like it's a little out of focus to me. I shot the 1st few today in manual focus mode and appears that what I was seeing though the viewfinder did not match what the camera was recording to tape.

1st actual heat of the day. A round of LSO that had a "last man standing" finish.

07 22 12 Heat 1 (2 min 10 sec)

2nd Heat is more LSO racing with the boats that didn't run in heat 1. It had to be split into two groups to have enough people for spotters for all the drivers.

07 22 12 Heat 2 (1 min 20 sec)

Here's a round of 1/8 scale hydro. Ray Hugh & myself with my Miller American picking up up a solid 3rd place finish. No wait, it was a 2nd place after Ray's Proboat Formula did a little upside down trick on the back stretch.

This was actually the 1st video from today but wound up having to upload it a 2nd time before it would show up.
An early morning test run of Hugh's Aquacraft Revolt. I had to clip the 1st portion of it out as there was radio music in the background and didn't want to deal with the youtube "3rd party" issues.

Another round of P mono with Brian, Ray and myself. If not for the buoy cut I would have had this one sewn up. I had to settle for 2nd behind Brian and only got that since Ray cut a buoy too.

A round of Q with Brian, Jeremy & Rich. Rich had technical difficulties at the start so it wound up being a 2 man race. Brian's win. He's got his Sprintcat cooking now.

07 22 12 Heat 6 (2 min 21 sec)


This is where I'm calling it quits for the night. YouTube has been uploading really slow and it's past my bedtime.
