Cairngorms Chillout

My Dartmoor Chillout slideshow seems to have been quite popular. Here’s another from my first trip to Scotland in 2007 with photos of the classic route from Blair Atholl to Aviemore via the Lairig Ghru. Hope you like it. It was a great trip.


Dartmoor video

I’ve put together another video slide show to the music of Harold Budd. This time it’s my walk across Dartmoor in April last year. It’s about six minutes long so get a cup of tea or coffee, sit back and relax.

Barking up the wrong tree?

Sorry to bang on about video, but this is exercising me at the moment. Maybe the answer is not a Flip or a Vado or an Aiptek, perhaps it’s a Sony. The new Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T500 Digital Camera may be the answer. It’s a proper camera but it also shoots HD video. It has a Carl Zeiss lens. Quite frankly, I’ve been underwhelmed by the quality (or lack of) on most of the video clips I’ve seen. I also feel that carrying two cameras (one still, one video) is not exactly part of the lightweight ethos and may over-complicate life. It weighs 180g, which is not bad. It also has stereo sound. I’ll have a look after Christmas to see whether any bargains are on offer. £220 seems to be the cheapest at the moment. That seems better value than either the Flip Mino HD or Vado HD.
