I see lots of people have added great walk reports. I prefer to have a bit of fun with a camera, so here's a wee movie of my day. I hope you enjoy it, and it inspires you.

Great fun, gsaboy! :D I enjoyed your wee film and it was good to see the view - when it was there to be seen! :lol: I wish I could eat my lunch as fast as you did on the hills - it would save so much time! :lol: Cheers. 8)

Cracking Video, so clear and crisp compaired to the ones I do, I think I will need to start looking for a new video camera.
How much of it was filmed on the Kodak ?

About half was filmed on the kodak. All the underwater stuff, and where I step over the camera.
It's a cracking camera, really simple - most importantly you can use it with gloves on, and it's waterproof.

A cracking little video. Loved the start with the Aldi carrier bags. Maybe sainsbury's quality would have provided the water proofing required???

I pinched the underwater idea and tried it on my last week, first results were fair, but I think I need a lot more practise to get it as good as gsaboy's
The wee Kodak kicks out not to bad a photo as well when its not to dull :)
