Latest Skateboarding/HD Edit

Monday, August 29th, 2011

I’ve had two HDV cameras give up the ghost… a Sony HDR-HC9 and a Cannon Vixia HV30. Actually, I can still use the Sony as a deck, but the CMOS is screwed up so it gives off a ghostly double-image of everything. The HV30′s carriage hates every cassette put into it, but I’ll give it credit… it was a few years old when I bought it and I gave it some hell.

My new camera is a Cannon Vixia HF M40, flash memory based (something I’ve been weary about, but starting to find pretty handy). 16 gigs internal memory, plus I doubled that with two mini SD cards… thing can record for 4 1/2 hours. Awaiting a baby death-lens and some extended life batteries from Amazon as I write this… it’s going to look ridiculous. I’ll post photos as soon as the gear comes in.

Anyway, this is a compilation of test footage under different settings, as well as recovered footage from the dead and dying HDV cams currently holding down paper at my fort’s office.

Some Recent Skate Art/Design

Adrenalina Skateboard marathon and Scion had a contest recently, the only rules were to make sure the deck met the template specs, and include the logos of both companies. I didn’t win, but The design was fun to make.
