My vacation camera comes in handy

Click here to purchase a photo

My Vacation Camera Comes in HandyI recently bought a nice little vacation movie/still camera called the Sanyo CG6 Xacti. It’s 6 megapixels, shoots stills and MPEG4 movies, 5x optical zoom, and does a very credible job, especially for Web use. I tucked it in my pocket when I covered, using my Canon SLRs, former President Bill Clinton as he campaigned for his wife Hillary at the Bourbon County Fairgrounds on March 25. Because Clinton spoke for some time, I decided to use this camera to shoot a movie for Kentucky.com. You can see it here.

The sound was really good with the built-in stereo mike, and the camera uses SD cards, making import into iMovie a snap by just dragging the clip files into the iMovie clip windows, and they copy quickly. Plus you can use the camera as a tape recorder only. I picked mine up at Wal-Mart for $200 to use on vacation this summer, but I couldn’t resist trying it out on a news assignment. Almost forgot: you can plug in headphones to monitor your sound and it has a tripod socket. Sorry, no external mike jack though.

One more thing. This is my official press pass to photograph the ex-president of the United States: A handwritten sticker with “Press” on it given to me by a nice local at the media check-in table. Well, he DID check my Herald-Leader ID. Heck, I’ve had more trouble getting access to the Backstreet Boys than the ex-prez.

    Dave,

    Thanks for a great tip on a great little camera. I have been impressed with it’s features. It makes you want to find opportunities to use it! I really appreciate you guys sharing tips like this one. I look forward to seeing some more of your “video extras” – watch out David Stephenson, DP may be leaning toward giving up his still camera.

    Thanks again,

    Ron

    I have a samsung model quite similar to this one, but unfortunately found out that Final Cut Express will not handle mpeg4 footage. I’ve never tried it with iMovie, but did you have to convert the footage before editing?

The Council Chamber has had to be re-arranged in order to accommodate the increased number of members. There were several features about the proceedings and one was the presence of Miss Lucas, the first lady elected to the Council. The Council Chamber was uncomfortably crowded by townspeople, who had come to witness the election of Mayor and Aldermen. As was expected, the unanimous choice of the Council for the position of Mayor was Ald J G Harbottle, who has held the position under the old regime since November 1913. With the exception of Majors Biggs and Fisher, who are on active service, and Mr V L Raven, who had been called away to Ireland, all the members were present, viz., Miss Clara Lucas, and Messrs T E B Bates, G Beadle, E M Hinde, J Howe, J F Latimer, C H Leach, Seaton Leng, J F Loraine, R Mosley, C H Mountford, R Nichol, P Prior, J Robinson, C W Starmer, Mr Waldy and G R Young. The Town Clerk (Mr H G Steavenson) occupied the Mayoral chair at the opening of the proceedings, and said the first duty of the Council was to elect a Mayor to hold office until the 9th November next. He had advised Mr Harbottle to continue to hold office until his successor was appointed, but for reasons readily apparent to all he desired the Town Clerk should occupy the chair until their pleasure was made known.
