Well I'm back from Coram. The LIBG was pretty fun, paint shot great. Though I messed up my 98 initially when I couldn't find my manual I printed out and must've messed up a couple of the settings. That only lasted for the first time I inserted, afterwards I found them and fixed the gun. It was having a couple times where it'd just keep bursting even after I stopped pulling the trigger. Ooops. Not safe.

But I am attempting to salvage a couple files on the SD card it records to. Seems the indexing got corrupt and it won't download after about half way through. But I did save another file that was myself and Pixie from Blue's Crew inside the Panther Tank and having just a grand ol' time!

Remember folks. You can't shoot the guys out that are riding in the tank. I can get shot all I want, and I can take the abuse. You can't! Just remember that for future reference to all those who were arguing with myself and the refs on why I'm shot "out" and why when I shoot them they don't leave!

There we go. Done and done. I'm however not happy with Youtube quality. So I think I'm going to re-save it with a higher bit rate to increase clearity.

Just got back from Bataan at EMR this weekend. Sunburned a bit but not too bad, just heatful not painful. Haven't even looked at any of the footage yet. Hope it turned out clear. Will try and get a video edited up in next few days.

Alright the salvaged footage from Long Island is up and viewable. Right now the laptop is saving the final production of the Bataan game at EMR. I'll upload that onto Youtube asap. Gonna be tight, it's just barely fitting into the Youtube requirements of 100mb/10min.

Hopefully I'll be having some better looking/sounding vids up with my future attempts. I researched and bought a new miniDV camcorder, plus an extra big battery and 5 miniDV's. No more lost footage, no more attempting to salvage stuff from the SD cards, and maybe if I can convince somebody to follow me with the camcorder I can toss in some 3rd person action. I've always wanted to make a Gears of War looking vid from the footage. Roadie Run ftw!

Hey been away from the PB world for a while. Busy with the demo derby and enduro races. Next weekend is another paintball event, and I plan on filming the activities from then as well. Pump Pandemonium IV at EMR Paintball.



The Camera setup. Up until now it has been a helmet camera feeding into a DVR: Digital Video Recorder. But that depended on SD cards. Too unreliable. I now have a Canon MiniDV recorder with an AV input. The image is cleaner and reliable. If I push record it'll keep recording until I make it stop. There's no fuzzy pixel lines from corrupt files. Or any other BS that the DVR gave me.

The helmet camera of choice is a bit more expensive than some others out there. Like that ATC2K that some use. That's all self contained, which is a big perk. But the video quality wasn't what I wanted. I went through www.helmetcamera.com and got a full setup. The camera sets inside an aluminum protective shell so if I fall on a rock or a paintball hits it... no damage I'm still good to go!

And the video quality with these is amazing. What I upload, by side-by-side comparison, is compressed garbage. I need to compress it though or else it'd be like 5 gigs of video footage. Rather than only about 30-70 megs. The raw footage however is as clean as any standard video camera can give you. Good enough for a paintball DVD.

Great compo Meph! I need to meet up with you sometime. You doing Castle again in '08? I've never made one, but with the number of MCB guys that make it, I figure I should give it a shot.

Yea, I'll be there during the '08 season. I live in New York so my traveling distance isn't much. I've actually had a season pass to EMR since the 2001 season.

If you can only make 1 game a year to EMR then Castle Conquest is pretty much a unanimous decision all the regulars will tell you. Other fields can claim 4000+ people, but that's spread all throughout the fields. EMR's spring Castle has almost 1500 players concentrated on only 3 acres of field.

And before and after Castle is basically a never ending party. You really have to experience it to believe it.
