So this happened

About a year ago, my beloved Canon A620, the mainstay of a trip to Europe in 2006 and, since 2008, my primary underwater camera, packed up and died. This left me without a suitable underwater device, which was sad. I had philosophical problems with spending another $280 on a proper housing for, say, the G11, so mostly I just complained a lot.

Last week, I caved and bought a GoPro Hero2 HD video camera. I… don’t really know what to do with it. But I guess we’ll find out.

Here’s the first project:

Things I learned: video is really, really, really processor-intensive. Wow.
