Photographers and Artists

Feeding sheep

Looks like we have a few photographers and artists in our midst so here's a place to talk about all photography, art, and related subjects.

Feeding sheep

Partly to show you that I don't sit at a computer all day, but also to demonstrate a weapon I bought to protect me from the imaginative stories cooked up by my mad neighbour when he attacks me and comes off worst.

Keeps both my hands free, and you wouldn't notice it if you weren't looking for it.

Just to get things completely straight - is that you wired up, Ruggie?

I'm impressed - should stand you in good stead if/when your neighbour next gives you stick. I hope you never need to use it, but on past form...

The camera is the size of my thumb, and is clipped onto my belt just below my belly button. With 2Gbytes of flash memory, it can run for quite a long time.

That clip came from an 8 minute continuous file of half a gigabyte, so I could shoot about 25 minutes of video before needing to download it and clear the memory. Like the cameras on smart phones, it needs good light for decent filming, but if all I care about is recognisable people synchronised with the sound...

I'll be extracting a new clip from the same run, showing the cross-Pyrennean dog - promised long ago to Mark

Quite fun, if the subject is more important than the technical quality. My dog-walking clips feel a bit odd, because the camera follows my hip movements - but when I hold it in my hand as I walk along I get plenty of camera shake, anyway. You get what you pay for in both money and effort - a gyro-stabilised camera carried on my shoulder is way beyond either my means or my interest (:=>

Nice. Good to hear actually hear you talk! Even if it is to sheep. :-)

Looks good. Good enough to provide evidence anyway. :) :)

Alan, I find that I'm muttering away on all the videos I make while walking dogs, etc., :roll:
