    Default Just went on my first Safari!!!!

    I finally fulfilled a dream that my dad imparted to me 43 years ago, when I was 5 years old: I went on my first African Safari!

    I hunted with Limcroma Safaris and had the time of my life! The hunting, staff, food and lodging were simply top notch! I am already planning my return.

    Please check out my YouTube videos of my hunts! My channel is 64bowhuntr.

    Here is the link to one of the 7 videos I have there:

    Believe it or not, it was just a new Sony Cybershot. The new models now have an 18:1 optical zoom that works in video mode. It takes great pics and great videos alike...at a very reasonable price!

    Sweet! It's amazing how well a budget priced camera works. My son, who is big into photography is researching a new camera for me. So far he has a Canon as well as a couple others tagged for me. Thanks.

    And I used a Mac in IMovie for the effects. I am really new to that, but it worked great.

    Thanks. I did that after your suggestion. I am still trying to figure out my way around here, but it is posted somewhere, along with my still pics

    So I bought ordered a camera this weekend. With my son's reseach I decided to go with the Sony Cybershot DSC-HX30V (newer 2012 version). It only weights 9 ounces so no extra weight in the backpack. You can peruse this camera at this link: Amazon.com: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX30V 18.2 MP Exmor R CMOS Digital Camera with 20x Optical Zoom and 3.0-inch LCD (Black) (2012 Model): Camera & Photo

    That is exactly what I used. It had just come out the week I bought it, in July. I love it for both stills and for the video capability and optical zoom in video mode.

    Nice! My son picked the right one then. Love your video's. How do you do the slow-motion feature?
