Spring Photos

Here are three jpg photos from our new camcorder (Sony HDR-CX700V) on our local walk and drive yesterday. It wasn't too bright and we had a few sprinkles of rain. I chose the format 16:9 to fit our TV monitor. It was quite exciting to do videos again after a long absence, especially now in the HD format. The camcorder came fully up to expectations. No more tapes to worry about, all recorded on a flash card. No moving parts. The camera is nice and light, only weighs one pound. Excellent for our planned trip to Alberta in May.

Weathering on an old pine stump, Skaha Lake.

Oh, by the way, Skaha Lake means Horse Lake in one local Indian dialect. Okanagan means "Transport to the top end". Vaseux Lake means Muddy Lake. Just thought you should know!....

It takes good photos too!
Re yr question - no it's not a round church. It has the round cupola and tower but then an oblong nave extending behind.

Congratulations on your new toy. Will you be sending videos via blogging now?

Great quality. At long last it almost seems that the ability to take good quality still and moving images has come together in the same piece of kit.
