I'll be visiting the beautiful island of Sao Miguel in May 2010. 15 days of pure relaxation :) This is my kind of landscapes - and my apologies to the other 8 islands for not visiting. These 9 Azorian islands in the Atlantic Ocean will be part of my vacation itinerary over the next decades (I'm sure).

The map will be updated with new locations in the coming weeks...
I'll be staying at Furnas Lake Villas for those 15 days. What a beautiful place :)
Playing around with interval recording from my balcony. Timelapse is so much easier with this camcorder than what I'm used to.
This is two 30 sec. clips. The first one is 1 frame every 5 seconds while the second is 1 frame every second.
I used a little Magic Bullet Looks on both clips.
I picked up a Sony PMW-EX1R from B&H in New York and spent a week testing it out all over Manhattan. This is a serious upgrade from my earlier Canon HG10 + Letus Mini combo. Handholding this beast is obviously not easy at all but I'll be doing mostly tripod stuff with it anyway. Here, and in future footage, the EX1R is set to fully manual. There is a lot to learn but that's the whole idea behind getting this camcorder in the first place :). Everything is unedited and ungraded. It'll show you how a novice does with something this complex.
I promise, I'll do better from now on :)
