I went out for a walk this afternoon, not far only a couple of miles, but I had a reason for going out. I’ve bought a GoPro Hero9 video camera. One of the main reasons I bought this particular model were the. Claims about stabilisation (bear with me).
I knew GoPro’s had a good reputation for picture quality, but after shooting about 10 minutes of video it is hard for me to quantify how absolutely blown away I am by both of these in the Hero9. I had the camera mounted on my monopod which extends to over 5 feet, I wanted to pretend being a low level drone by hoisting the camera in to thee air, but I left the monopod extended when I brought it back down. There are two times where you can hear the reverting “Boing” where I kick the monopod as. I am walking, these don’t even show up as slight judders. Incredible!!
I have plans for the GoPro. More on those later.
I walked down to the water front and along the promenade and was rewarded with the sight of the small cargo ship, the Split Two leaving the harbour. A very noisy boat she was as well. I carried on towards the Trinity church, where I said hello to the couple of squirrels that live there. One of them was up on his back legs, watching me to see if i was going to pinch is food. I’m not in to soggy, oak leaf covered acorns, so his supply was safe. This is where I give you another photograph;
The phone box has a definite list to it. I’m surprised that i haven’t noticed this before. I can’t help wondering the people from the pub opposite feel if they use after having drunk a bit too much. The weather was perfect for a walk.
