A Windmill Wonderland

It was Black Friday and my wife and I decided to go in a slightly different direction.  Instead of hustling about some overcrowded mall, we headed up to Long Grove to mill about the shops and enjoy a lovely late Autumn day.

On the one hand, the various windmills were delightful.  The downside was that I was surrounded by all these lovely visions in motion, and the only camera I had was my GE X500.  Incredibly good for still pictures but the video resolution is only 640 by 480.

The first bit of good news is that the X500 is fairly lightweight and very easy to balance.  The few instances where you see the picture shaking is where I was being buffeted by 20 mph gusts of wind.

Good news part 2 is that I have a very good video editing program.  Kdenlive allowed me to substantially improve the quality of the picture.  While it isn't as good as if I'd been able to use a Hi Def camera, it does make a nice YouTube video.
