Another Camera Test Clip

without comments

This time down at the airport I, ahem, fly out of, Montgomery Field, San Diego. I thought I’d take some film of planes taking off and landing but the place was almost dead. The video was shot in 720p at the 60fps rate and then export in iMovie ’09.

I’m quite pleased with the quality though I’m disappointed that when the helicopter flew over the camera kept focus on the wire fence rather than the bird. I suppose the auto focus had to make a choice.

I must say that I like the new iMovie. I skipped ’08 so the interface is quite different from what I am used to. What I really like, compared to the Flip, is that the native file format goes right into iMovie with no transcoding, I make edits and then writing out the final file to be exported is real quick. Uploading to Viddler et al is still a bitch thanks to my cheap internet connection but that’s what work is for, right?
