Kite record attempt

Brunswick Heads Kites and Bikes Festival.

I've downsampled to 720p and then uploaded to flickr so the quality could be quite bad compared to the original 1080p video. I've also stripped the audio out as it was just the sound of the wind.

    Yeah, wasn't bad at all. Only got a little sunburnt too (on the spots I missed with the sunburn cream).
    Yep, sure did.
    Yeah, I think they needed a titch over 1600 in the air at the same time, but I don't think they made it. I don't do much video, but it's handy to have the option.

    Argh! Yeah it's not the easiest thing to sort out. After entering Live View mode, you press AF-On and hold it in until the image comes back (focus gained), then press the Set button on the big dial to start recording, and Set to stop.

    How did you guys have the stamina to stay on for the day? We were shattered after the very early start to the day - totally confused by daylight saving!

    Good question really - I'd been up for 29 hours when I took this.
