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 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 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 . 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
