    Hydrodrags

    Hey just wanted to say to everyone.....If you got a camera and video camera please bring it as last aprils event did not have that much video in comparison to other events that have been covered. I am bringing my digital camera and digital video cam.

    I also extend to anyone who wants to make a full video of the event. I will send all my pics and video to them or I can make the video as well. If you want to send me what you got.

    I will have my laptop and wireless card with me. Just hope the service works out there. We can also keep a live feed of the event or an updated feed from the event.

    If anyone is interested bring your electronics to the site. Maybe we can get some of the guys comin but not runin to help with this.

    Just my 2 cents...

    What do you think.....

    The more coverage we can get of this event the better in the long run for this sport....

    what format and what editing platform?

    I'm bringing a Canon HD prosumer camcorder. I have been planing
    on shooting in 16:9. I use Adobe Premiere CS3 Pro for editing.

    As you know it is time consuming to put pieces together, particularly
    from different sources.

    I was going to shoot in 16:9 HD format as well but I dont use Adobe Premiere I use Corel Video Studio. Not the best in the world but I like it I wish I had CS3 but couldnt afford it at the time. CS4 beta I think is out right now. Would like to tinker with that but once again expensive....

    Yea getting all the different formats together can be a bioch. And it sucks sometimes but I figure at least we can come up with something....Cause no one else will....And the event coverage will be us and some mags. But the video would be great....

    Who knows it was just an idea really.

    That's like a $5000 camera!!!! What the heck do you do with that thing?? I'd kill for one.
    Still looking for a decent, sub-1000 HD video camera to take on my "trip".

    Looking forward to seeing the drags....especially your, with the parachute braking

    The Sony is very nice, but it has one problem. That stupid Sony memory stick. I wish they would have bundled a bigger one with it.

    I'm leaning towards the Canon Vixia HF100. Its less then the Sony, with the same resolution, and I can use SDHC memory, which will plug right into my computer.
