I’m not liking the strap that came with my Rebel T2i, so I’m looking for an aftermarket solution. (It’s a little itchy and not really long enough.) Does anyone have any suggestions? I would prefer something that goes over neck and shoulder, and that allows me to quickdraw for pictures.
The kids and I were waiting for my wife in the car last night, so I took the opportunity to play with my new camera’s video capture. It’s actually very nice.
As the title implies, there is jazz, and there is thunder. There is also the cacophony of my children’s voices. The video is quite short.
This has been a long time coming.
You can safely file this under the “things that dominate small corners of my brain” department.
Rock Band + Flip Mino HD + poster putty = this:
The focal point is in a bad place, and the buttons on this thing are too loud. All I did was take the Mino and slap it on the headstock of the fake guitar with some putty. If I wanted to take this all the way, I’d design some kind of a mount for it to elevate the camera and get some angle on the buttons, and then a counter-weight for the body of the guitar (it added a not-insignificant amount of weight to the headstock).
This is a good example of why I’m happy to have my iPhone’s camera with me all the time.
Here’s a flickr photoset (not mine) of the type of pictures taken by the new iPhone 3GS camera.
If I had one of these, I probably wouldn’t take another point-and-shoot camera around with me again. These look great.
Also: my phone envy for one of these things grows daily.
