That pile of Garden Peach looks absolutely, awesomely tasty right there @ the end of the table.

Was wondering about the repeat after 1:30?

Probably an editing problem....this clip has been giving me fits (as usual, multitasking!). I was piecing it together from various bits.

Yup...thanks! Will do a snip at some point...thanks for the heads up!

Ok, just curious if there was something not immediately apparent one was to try and discern or something.
Honest to gosh, I'm not trying to be a pain in the arse, but I was looking at some of the videos from gatherings past & the [URL][/URL] video had me thinking I was having a acid flashback, except I've never indulged. :D

No, I appreciate you finding it! I love the little Flip video cam, it is easy to use, and pretty quick to download the clips to my laptop...and not too bad editing the clips, either - but once you start converting the clips into movies, because they are HD and very large files, they take forever...and then once you start loading them onto YouTube, they take forever again, as well as suck up all of the wireless bandwidth in the house!

You have to convert them before uploading them to Youtube? How unfortunate. :(
I almost bought the flip when shopping for a video camera, what I chose was the Kodak ZI8, it's a very handy camera, it comes with Arcsoft for uploading & editing. All one needs to do is import the video & upload directly to Youtube, no conversion needed. It also has some handy features like close-up mode, external mic jack (very cool with wireless mic & receiver), it accepts up to 16 gigabyte sd cards too, which means you can pop in a fresh one & keep recording without having to upload from an onboard disk to make more room.
You can get extra batteries cheap on Amazon, too ( like $3.00 each instead of the $24+ for the name brand ones. What's really cool additionally is the newest iteration, the playsport is completely waterproof up to 10 feet deep; only thing it doesn't have is the external mic jack & the closeup mode. Oh ya, they both can record in 720p, 720p/60fps, & 1080p. :)
I would recommend either of these cameras if you're looking for a nice, handy, versatile feature set in a digital camera.

Lee, what were your findings on the Coustralee. Your sources and how they
differed. I did not see that info anywhere.
