I very much enjoyed the video. A great companion to your wonderful trip report. Thanks for taking the time to put it together.

Excellent video!

Very good resolution, nicely timed with the music, nice mix of stills and moving scenes, a very good pace...

What was the equipment and editing software?

I used my cell phone (Samsung) to video our Florida expe. Never used any stills. A very different approach for us.

Cheers,

Totally amazing. The penguins were a surprise.

Thank you for sharing your adventure.

I now use Magix Movie Edit Pro 2013. I used to use Sony Vegas, but I had to upgrade it to handle 1280p video, and found that on my fairly low-spec PC it was impossible - the preview just didn't work.

It isn't perfect on Magix, but it is still reasonably usable. At some point I'll buy a more powerful laptop, but I wasn't prepared to do so just for one piece of software.

The video is shaky, but then it is filmed using a Nikon Coolpix AW100 waterproof compact camera - not people's first choice of video camera.

Very nice, I wish I had the patience and expertise to produce something similar. I lack both in equal measure. Great job! It was a fun watch.

I read your trip report, but this takes the report to another level. Just amazing, thanks for posting and allowing us to travel along.

Well Well! I wonder what it would have been like if you had a real video camera and a steadycam...marvelous job. Enjoyed it no end. You looked happy at the end...good shot!

Nicely done Steve and Sally. It brings a little different perspective to the same sights in your trip reports. For me, it was especially so for the 4x4 to get to it campground and the beach camping.
