Ameristep Doghouse Blind

by on Nov.25, 2012, under Equipment Testing

Great blind with easy setup and plenty of room inside. The backpack style carrying case (model# 10303) is a bonus for those longer trips into the woods.

Testing the Canon HF S100 HD Camcorder

by on Apr.25, 2009, under Equipment Testing

Checking out the Canon HF S100 HD Camcorder. Mostly programmed AE @ 24Mbps. Auto focus was used for the cardinal feeding and manual focus for the rest as you can till at the end with the flicker woodpecker that I didn’t get it focused in.

S-video to laptop problem fixed

by on Apr.17, 2009, under Equipment Testing


Since I started working on streaming video, I’ve been wanting to stream with my old Sony trv128 camcorder at night. Not having an s-video or a composite plugin on my laptop prevented that until now. The solution was a EasyCap USB video capture adapter. I was skeptical of it from the reviews but still chose it over the higher priced adapters listed. 3 days after ordering it I had it hooked up and working in a couple of minutes. There was no problem hooking it up with Vista and it works perfectly with the Adobe Flash media Encoder .  Save some bucks and go cheap with this adapter.
