Yet Another Archery Video

Posted by on June 25, 2017

Look people, I have a very complicated camera and I’m still figuring it out, *and* I love to make archery videos. So back off! 🙂

I shot this video in 4K on an overcast day, which makes for some awesome imagery. I also set up a stereo microphone configuration so you could hear the bow release on the left and the target impact on the right.

Yes, my talents are being wasted, here. I wish I could show you the 4K video, but it’s a little too large for uploading to my web-site and you probably don’t have a 4K monitor, anyway. I don’t have one, but I’ve been looking around for a good deal on one. It really would be nice to be able to play my videos in their full resolution, although I think 1920 x 1080 (2k) looks pretty awesome too.

Alright, here is a web-sized version of my awesome archery video.

    I just realized this is the 3rd archery video I’ve posted, this year! I’m in serious need of psychotherapy.

    Good Morning Doug; Like the outfit. Nice to see you up and moving around. Wish I could still pull back bow, I had a Bear Whitetail years back. But had a fall at work and shoulders just cant take the abuse anymore. Even the simple task of using a hammer within a very short period of time, causes really bad burning pain. Anyways, nice shooting, hope you get back on your feet soon. I know this has got to be killing you not being able to get out to the mud holes. Got my Hero4 finally, damn is that thing small. Have to go play with it and see how well it works.

      Thank you, Mr. buff. I have been getting around alright, which is a big improvement. I’ve been designing a lift for my kayak trailer that will load and unload my kayak without me having to lift anything. Given my work load, it will take more than a week to build the lift, but once I get it built, I’ll just have to wait for suitable weather and I should be able to, at least, go kayaking.

      I think you’ll love your GoPro. My only complaint is that the focus is a little soft outside of 3 or 4 feet, but I could change that, if I really wanted to. The image quality is very impressive, for what it is. In some conditions, the GoPro video looks better than the video from my Nikon DSLR. I’m getting spoiled by the Panasonic AG DVX-200, but the camera is huge and heavy, and costs as much as 10 GoPros, so it’s not ideal for shooting in the swamp. It is also very complicated, so it’s easy to make mistakes.

      I’m optimistic about my recovery. I guess I just need to be patient.
