Greetings from Scotland

Hello all

I thought I would introduce myself - now don't yawn!

I work as a Medical Photographer for a District General Hospital in Airdrie, Scotland. Airdrie is sort of in the middle of a triangle formed by Edinburgh, Glasgow and Stirling in the central belt of Scotland.

My primary function is to photograph patients for clinical purposes. If you think of X-ray Departments imaging on the 'inside' of the body then we image on the 'outside'. The majority of our patients come from Accident & Emergency, Dermatology (skins), maxillo-facial (mouth), ENT (nose jobs) and operating theatre.

The department uses an XL1 to record training videos, in the main for surgeons and I use a Pinnacle DV500plus capture system and edit using Permiere V6.

I am delighted to have found this forum and have learned alot already. Can I apologise in advance for the daft questions that will be posted in the future. Presently i am trying to look at the previous postings so I do not repeat things - but there is a lot to read!

Regards to all.

Ross

Welcome aboard Ross! Seems your at least in an interesting
(thought I can imagine, weird) job. So after the movies and the
military hospitals are using the XL1 too. Fun! Good to have
you with us and as Ed pointed out if you cannot find the answer
to one of your questions using the search feel free to post.

Good luck!

I recently saw the XL1 hung on a rig above the operating bed on Holby City on BBC 1 (as a prop). I was wandering whether you do the same sort of thing. I guess it can get quite grusome sometimes.

All the best,

Ed Smith

Hi Ross,


<<Can I apologise in advance for the daft questions that will be posted in the future.>>

There ain't no such thing as a daft question.....only a daft answer.

Have a Mc Ewan's for me....OK then make it a couple.

Nice to see you here.


Cheers
Andrew

I do not have the benefit of having the camera on a circulating arm - the difference between TV & reality - so I am often up a set of step ladders.

As the old saying goes 'seen one seem them all'. You do need to become detached and not regard what you are filming as a person. I know this sounds hard but you would crack up otherwise! Most people have seem the kind of thing we record but you miss out on the smell........

Glad to be on board.

Hi from Scotland

I'm glad that I found this site as there is'nt anything like this in the UK.
I recently purchased a Canon XM2 and I am looking forward to using it . I use Pinnacle DV500+ and Abobe Premiere ver 6 to edit. I am a member of Livingston Camcorder Club. We have been going for about 10 years and we have done various video projects about local historical features.
I am looking forward to conversing with other video enthuiasts from all parts of the globe.

Cheers!

Howdy from Tokyo, Tommy.

Glad to have you join us! I hope we'll get the chance to see some of the projects you and the Livingston Camcorder Club have made.

In the meantime, we'll see you on the boards.

Hello Tommy,
I'm curious about your "various video projects about local historical features". Are you shooting historical plays, documenting traditional crafts (like distilling) or interviewing old folk?
It's great to see a camcorder club devoting itself to useful community projects.

I'm just across the North Sea from you.
