travel, Videos I dig

93 Million Miles from the Sun

A little known fact is that the husband and I used to enjoy video production back in our uni days. We once shot a cheesy horror flick where I got brutally murdered and laid out on a deserted grass patch surrounded by tea lights. Thankfully, all evidence of that has been eliminated.

But the point is we used to really like making videos.

After graduation, we put that on hold because it cost way too much to invest in good video recording equipment. So apart from the occasional footage we take on the iPhone, we don’t really do much video recording.

Recently, I was introduced to the Sony HDR-GW77 Handycam. The folks at Sony passed me one set to fiddle with and when I first saw it, I admittedly didn’t think much of it. It’s like a fraction of the size of the SemiPro Sony Camcorders we used to work with and the whole unit was barely as big as my palm. But the features seemed impressive. It’s completely waterproof (up to 5m), dustproof, shockproof and comes with 10x optical zoom.

It was perfect timing that we got to bring it along to Australia to get some travel footage.

Amazing video quality aside, my favorite feature is the waterproof one. We were at Wet ‘N’ Wild Waterpark and I was about to bring it into the pool when the lifeguard was all like “I think you forgot to put down your camera, it’s going to get wet” and I just shrugged and said “Oh, this? It’s waterproof, mate!” before dunking it in the water like a boss.

Well, ok enough talking and time for some pudding. As in proof, not actual pudding.

Change your Youtube setting to 1080p to view in HD. Enjoy!

    Aiyo the way Kirsten runs is so cute!! And I like that she was trying to emulate what Tru was doing in the sand up till the part he decided to lie down and put sand on his head. I could see the ‘Uh-uh, no way I’m doing that’ thought bubble above her head. Lol.

      Hahaha it’s already a big achievement that she covered her body with sand considering how icky she gets with sand in her toes. But you’re right, no way is she putting sand on her hair!

    I’m most amazed at footage on the plunging ride thing, whatever its called. How can you (or was it Kelvin) hold on to the camera during such moments, and remember to film the sign about getting wet?!
