Initial test footage with Canon SX1. Yes, I know it's cheesy as hell to put background music in videos.

Ants: YouTube and Vimeo.

Bees: YouTube and Vimeo (not in HD due to restrictions on free Vimeo accounts).

Decisions, decisions... YouTube, which has marginal playback quality, is free with unlimited uploads... Vimeo, which has excellent playback quality, is free for one HD upload a week or you pay to get more. Hmm....

Overall, I'm pleased with the camera and the quality of the photos and videos it produces. My examples certainly aren't stellar, but I'm still getting used to driving the thing. Next weekend I'm definitely going to play around with it more, maybe head for a beach somewhere or something.

Also: I am absolutely going to make a string monopod for the trip. With a full loop of string, it could even be used as a mock duopod/tripod. Neat.

I recommend having a Joby Gorillapod in your 'pod arsenal as well. Very handy to have, and inexpensive.

Dude! I totally got the Phase IV reference even before checking the "more info." That movie is awesome!

Right on. The amazing close-up and photography in that movie really put it over the top. One of the best looking 70s movies west of Italian horror.
