The dawn of a new era. Video! July 2009
|Well, that was it. It
really didn't take much to realise that video has place on Trainspotter
USA.com. What kind of place I don't know. What I know is that I enjoy
shooting the video and editing a simple film is easy in iMovie. I was
really impressed with what I put together on the SP daylight so I
figured that there is no excuse not to add video to the site.
As luck would have it there was a sale on at National Camera at this time so I went down to see what was on offer. After some extensive research and serious discussion with a Canon Sales rep I came away with a Canon Vixia HG20 HD digital video camera. I am very excited to bring video to you on Trainspotter-USA.com. Obviously the site will undergo some changes and things might look different from month to month. Hopefully though soon I will come up with an arrangement I like.
Initially I have a lot of video and not many photos as I have concentrated on the videoing and learning what my "new toy" will do. So for this one report I'll let the films for the month speak for themselves.
|At this point I think
it is worth re-iterating the Trainspotter-USA philosophy. It's not
about beautifully lit technically perfect pictures and film that you
find on places like railpictures.net . Trainspotter-USA is about being
lineside and reporting what I see. Maybe some of the fun and excitement
will come over to you. I think video will be great for that. I hope you
enjoy the new video addition to Trainspotter-USA.com
