I have moved into high definition video recording. Through a mini-grant I have received a Canon HG10 hard drive based video camera.
I can record about five hours of 1920 x 1080 video on the 40 GB hard drive. Putting that video online is going to be a bit of a trick right now. At more than 100 MB per minute, I won’t be streaming HD for a while.
While I wait for a free HD streaming site, I can upload the huge pictures snapped with the camcorder. Normally pictures from movie cameras are awful. The resolution is typically 320 x 240, or if you’re lucky they are pixel-doubled to 640 x 480. The HG10 can snap pictures at full HD resolution.
