Stock: Horse Hits Cameraman

Horse hits cameraman. Horse does not quite pass by cameraman. Some of my old 8mm (video) footage I came across recently.

Douglas Adams at Siggraph97

Douglas Adams at Siggraph 1997. Short video clips of Siggraph97, including part of a presentation by Douglas Adams regarding Starship Titanic video game creative process. Quality of this handheld video capture is poor. And the audio seems delayed although that is how we experienced it at the presentation. And I ran out of batteries before he even GOT to titanic, he'd only touched on Infocom by then... (cough, awkward pause). I'm not actively encouraging anyone to watch this video ("oh you gotta see this") but I found the tape, I loved Adam's work, and if someone's looking for Douglas Adams footage pertaining to Storytelling/Infocom, I ain't gonna deny them.

Sony DCR-TRV110 - Receive Infrared & Visible Light

Gord in infrared. The Sony DCR-TRV110 Nightshot switch can be jammed half-way between "Off" and "On" which disables the infrared LEDs and allows both visible light and infrared light to hit the CCD.

This is handy for shooting in low-light conditions, when you want to use all the available light possible, but don't want the distracting "beam" of infrared shooting from the front of the camera.
