A good way to start the blog for 2017; posting my decision to buy the Canon XA 35. This evening I was with Steve. He downloaded the footage from the memory card to his hard drive and transferred 1 hour and 20 minutes worth to his edit programme. The footage included two night filming walks and the lagoon at the Sports Complex, dry on 30 December 2016 and full of water on 4 January 2017 with four Pacific Black Ducks swimming in it, after heavy rain three days ago. I am hanging onto the demo camera and hope to be able to keep it until the new one arrives.
