We spent a lazy afternoon at the my handle bar food and wine bar in Sydney Rd Brunswick. We’ll there to see a friend Julia play bass and sign in two bands that she’s currently playing in. We took the kids along and they enjoyed the variety of music set in a very cosy atmosphere upstairs were the bands play.
It was also an oppurtunity to test the high ISO capabilty of one of our newly acquired cameras Nikon’s D810. Very impressed with the new auto focus system and the low noise at higher ISO’s. Wedding season is about the commence and we’ll be looking forward to working with D810 this year.
We thoroughly enjoyed the music and inparticular the electric harp playing. Julia did extremley well fighting the flu. Her secret – “oil 1L water together with 1 thumb sized piece of ginger sliced thinly and 1 nashi pear cored and cut into eighths. Leave the peel on. Simmer for 1 hour. – sip the resulting liquid to soothe your sore throat. I used extra ginger cos I like it that way and I got through ok. Not a cure, but certainly made me more comfortable”.
Earlier this month we travelled down to Rosebud West to cover the first Night Cap Wrestling Foundation event. The NCWF has a great set up for training and putting on live events. Wrestlers came from all over the state as well as Queensland to perform in front of a full house.
There next event Overdrive is set down for Sat September 5th. Unfortunaltley due to other commitments we won’t be there but wish the Captian and the rest of the NCWF the best for what’s set to be another great night of local wrestling.
On Saturday 15th August we attended the Australian Terminal Cancer Foundation Gala Dinner at Melbourne Park with the ladies from Stilttainment http://www.stilttainment.com.au While I was primarily there to capture a small amount of footage of the stilt performers it was obvious from all the guests attending they where having a awesome time raising money for a good cause.
It also gave us a chance to test drive our new digital video recorder the Datavideo DN-60 DV / HDV Compact Flash Card Solid State Video Recorder. Thanks to John from the Video Guys for all his help on getting the 32GB Kingston cards in at short notice and Roger Hagelaar from DiskTech Digital Australia for his technical support from Adelaide Airport.
