Yesterday Oscar and Stewie were on the Kodak 1000 Words Blog. A few years ago I attached a digital camera to Oscar. This time I attached a Zi8 Pocket Video Camera and let him shoot some video.
Stewie shot some video too, but it's not very interesting - you can watch both the videos on the blog post.
Oh - if you get motion sickness, don't watch Oscar's video.
that was funny. I liked the sound Oscar made as he walked
I have that video camera and I love it. One question. What setting did you put the camera on to post the video on your blog? HD?
Fun videos! A squirrel, rabbit or other creature encounter would be highly entertaining!
Very Cute! In Stewies video I noticed your bamboo fencing. Do you take it down in the winter or do you leave it up year round? I have left mine up and it doesnt seem to be holding up very well
Ann - I think I had it on the highest setting 1080p HD - I didn't edit it at all, I uploaded the quick time right to YouTube. It did take awhile for Oscar's to upload. 780 probably would have been fine. Pat - We don't live at that house anymore but we put the first one in in 2002 and replaced it 4 years later. Two things to do to make it last longer - mount it so it doesn't touch the ground - don't use the wax string, we used zip ties. I found the bamboo doesn't go bad, the wire that holds it together rusts and breaks.
I just saw this and it made me think of you: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2009/12/091216-crittercam-tree-kangaroo-video/
Love it! Everything seems so huge on pug level!
Recent numbers show that 63% of US households own a pet - that's 71.1 million homes and families with dogs, cats, iguanas, parakeets, fish, ferrets, potbellied pigs, etc, etc., Taking care of a pet is tougher than taking care of an infant, since our pets can't speak. Hence, making sure your pet is safe and happy when you leave it alone at home should be a priority for all pet owners. One of the simplest ways of watching over a pet remotely is by using some sort of webcam software like GotoCamera www.gotocamera.com that is easily available online these days. Thanks to technology and some very smart people who are working on making things easier for us, you can now use your basic webcam to monitor your pets while you're away from them.
