Cars and announcer only pretty much the entire race minus maybe 5 or 6 minutes when I was shaking out my hands to get the blood flowing again or really quick moves which I always edit out. I sure hope I get to go to the race in July. Those photo passes are hard to obtain.

Default Realplayer won't play mp4

Realplayer won't play mp4 files. I think the divx free bundle for windows has an mp4 codec that you can use. CoreAVC is probably the best codec for windows for mp4. Its 15 bucks or you can try it for free. There are other players out there as well for free. VLC player is another. Quicktime player. Do a google on mp4 player. Then you'll be good to go. Windows 7 finally has native mp4 support but all the other versions require you to obtain a codec. Except for the CoreAVC codec which uses nvidia video cards for hardware decoding is free.

Default One more

Well the weather sucks here again this weekend. No way to get out to get more footage. But I do have some more from Saturday at the Worlds Warm Up.

Default Thanks

I had a good time shooting that race weekend. Unfortunately the following weekend I trashed my back and can't do the stand up shooting thing any longer. Over the past couple of months I've been adapting to a tripod and monitor set-up so I can continue to shoot. Its much harder to get everything smooth. But the last few vids have been looking close to what I was getting so I'm pleased about it even though I'd rather be free to walk around. The pod has a dolly so its not too hard to move it to get several points of view. As long as the ground is fairly smooth. Not so much to make it roll but to keep from jarring the camera.

I was hoping these vids would get a photo pass for the Worlds. Despite being promised one for doing this set of vids it never showed up. Thats the second time something like that has happened when I tried to do some shooting at an on-road race. I'm going to check into shooting at the 1/8 Worlds. Since it only comes around every 7 years or so this set of races will be the last I have a chance of shooting realistically. With my health problems I'd be doing real good to last another 7 years. Its a long haul for me. But I hope it works out. It would have been much easier just to travel to Houston.

I met and talked with lots of cool people from all over the world after I put out this set of vids. Found out they were posted on sites all over the world as well. And when you really think about it that's what's important.

Here is a pic of my set-up. The monitor is an 8" HD IKan. The black box on front of the camera is to control the light. The rich colors in my vids come from this box. Everthing is mounted on carbon fiber rails. Its standard to set up complex camera rigs this way. All kinds of brackets arms etc are made so you can set up most any configuration. The arm supporting the monitor has 4 joints and goes limp when you pull the handle. Set it like you want and then return the handle to the hold position and its rigid. The monitor is stationary no matter where the camera is. That allows me to sit down which is much more comfortable and I can shoot much longer.
