Last Few Days


Since Jay got a new Xacti for Xmas, I got the passed down C4. Now I've become a Momentshowing freak-taking little videos all the time. This is why the Xacti rocks compared to my little Kodak-because you can just open the LCD screen and it's on and ready to record. I must say I like it very much. The weird digital audio noise drives me nuts though. I've noticed it on other Xactis as well, I think it's just a bad design flaw. Anyway, enjoy some of my pre-holiday and during-holiday observations in SF, Boston and New Bedford.

Great little video. I'm actually collecting videos like this. I only have 3-4 and I'm waiting till I have like around 10. Hope you guys had a great holiday season and hope to see you in 2007.

Oh, that noise! That freaky, clicky, tickly endless sci-fi noise!

Drives me bats.

Don't let it stop you. You get used to it.

Happy New Year!!!

Love holiday mash up videos. We too got the new Xacti from Santa. Don't know if it's life changing, but it's certainly video changing.

Nice to see Verdi sitting on your couch. When I interviewed you for my research paper, you said if you and Verdi ever lived in the same city you would get SO MUCH DONE! And it's happened. Look out, world.

That was really cool. I've never used my xacti to make a video like that though every time I watch one of Jay's I say I'm going to do one. So now I'm going to do one for real.

Hey Ryanne,
nice piece, I see what you're saying about the audio, but the picture quality is nice.
Q: the video has a slightly warm, soft quality - is that the equipment itself, or did you do some post work?

Happy new year,
- Oscar

oscar-

i didnt do anything special to it in post. i think the warmth comes from the grainy-ness? not sure.
it's a fun camera though!

That owl tat reminded me of the owl from Secret of NIMH. Not visually, just his majestic appearance. All owls are majestic though.
