You're not joking about the Great Weather on the East Coast. Where I am located at this moment, it was only 78 Degrees Fahrenheit for a Hi today, and
the Lo is going to be around 56 Degrees Fahrenheit. This time last year I remember it being 105 Deg F., with a Lo of 80 Deg. F. It feels and looks
like Mid-Spring outside right now, Clear Blue skies, and extremely low humidity. Are all of these Human Sourced-Global Warming fanatics paying
attention right now?
BTW, just to let folks know, tripods for cameras are relatively inexpensive. I have one that has a universal fit for every camera I own. I used it to
videotape that "Comet" Holmes last Fall. There is no need for extremely expensive or elaborate set-ups, just get something that works, and most
importantly have equipment that you feel completely comfortable and familiar with.
Also, as a side note, do most of you remember all of that hoopla over the purported videotape of the Stephenville, TX sightings? The video I am
mentioning is the one that had a light squiggling all over it, and Linda Moulton Howe claimed this "craft" was "Projecting Symbols" in the Night
Sky. Anyways, I said it then, and I will say it again, that was NOTHING more than the Video camera being set into low-light mode, and moving around.
The guy who videotaped it claimed he had his arm propped on a fence post. Well, I can tell you through experience that is not good enough for a camera
in low-light or Super Night-Shot mode. Even worse was that he was zoomed in the entire time, which only serves to Magnify any motion already present
on the end of the Camera itself. Bottom line, there is no substitute for a Tripod or secure mount. If you can get a remote, that's even better yet
(when you push buttons, as I need to do, you can easily jar the camera and mess a video/photograph up when shooting in low-light conditions).
