The tripod

Good evening,

I got the tripod today. It is definitely a miller. the sticks are in fact a wooden tripod, and I must confess the are one of the nicer set of wood legs I have seen.
the fluid head is totally consistant in it pan weight and its vertical movement. It is very smooth and does not retract at all when you stop your movement.
It is definitely old but substantially better than any tripod I have had my cameras on. I reckon it was worth a hundred fifty dollars.

It says Miller copyrighted F

Congrats Dale,
I think you done a real good deal, $150 that's nice :-) Looking forward to see steady pans with your 100-400mm.

Per,

I posted a few flicks on the tripod threads to see if anyone knows what it actually is. Definitely not a new version.

Have been looking at the pics, yes it's definitely an old model. But as long as you'll have steady shoots, no one asking which tripod used (except wildlifephotographers of course!) ;-)

my tale of wonder is that i'm actually babysitting an uploading file, entitled MCE_UC3_TheGreenTara. i finally managed to put up an entry to uwolchallenge.com. yes! woo hoo! i'm so excited to finally have this system down to where i can participate (outside of the competition, of course, but in the game!)

it's kind of goofy, but i'm going through all of the participant pathways, (so when i'm done i have to go in the regular way and move my own file around....) just to see what you all go through.

and i have to say, it's pretty exciting, to get to the upload stage of things and to know that my modest little entry is going on to the site with everyone else's....

Congrats Meryem on the video!

I just finished editing my entry. Now I have to make the music, export, and upload, then I am good.

I have to admit, this is probably my worst film yet.
Sorry everyone if you watch my video, you might want to cry. lol!

Running out of time, locations, and most of all, energy...

For those of you who saw my first film, "Duck, the Snow Falleth," prepare to see part two! lol... :(

Hopefully with a decent soundtrack, I'll be able to make it less boring for y'all -- Sorry.

Heres a few things that I learned during this time; I dislike editing -- I hate Imovie more, Auto-focus can ruin your best footage, waking up really early and getting minimal sleep four days in a row starts to really get to ya in the 5th day, and caffeine is a life saver. :)

I can't wait to see everyones submissions!
~Gabriel

gabriel, here's a tip:

mine is clocking in at around 2:15. if you think you're lacking material, better to make it shorter and more interesting than to stretch it to a lower quality 3 minutes. remember, these are maximums. there is no minimum....

Thanks Meryem..

I like a few of the clips in there, but maybe I will cut it.

It would not have turned out so bad if I could have got the time-lapse to work.. Dumb Imovie..

Thanks for the tip, you have a good point!

Well, I have diddle squat to go with my mushroom, duck and flower.

I spent about $70 in gas today driving to numerous state and county parks with nothing that even looked remotely interesting.

Found an out of the way state park called Hanging Rock. You'd think that would be interesting right? Nope. Walked down the trail for about two miles then came to a gate that send end of state land.

So, I walked the two miles back without even taking my camera out.

Saw all kind of prairie trilliums and other wildflowers that had all died off now that the trees have leafed out. No wildlife other than a bazillion blood sucking vampire skeeters! 100% Deet and a different repellant on top of that did nothing to deter them. I look like I have chicken pox I have so many bites on me.

Well, tomorrow is do or die. I'll be up and out by 4AM going back to the nature center where I shot the mushroom, duck and flower to see if I can at least add another couple shots. Then I need to head to one more location for the beginning of the film.

Hopefully it will all pan out.
