Video walk around of the beast

March 2010 Two successive weekends of unfavourable flying weather left me with little else to do except record a video walk around of the beast inside the hangar.

Interestingly, although the negligible weight of the iPod Nano made it easy to film, the absence of mass meant there was no damping of the inherent unsteadiness of the handheld camera.

In contrast to digital still and video cameras, the Nano doesn't have an optical image stabilisation feature. If it did, the Nano would have cost me a bit more than it did!

The Nano's native resolution is 640 x 480 pixels. At this size on a PC screen, the image is reasonably sharp. But of course, the quality suffered much degradation once it was uploaded and converted into Flash format to a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels.
