One of the joyful things about sorting through various stuff was rediscovering my Yi 360 Camera. I’d bought this as an improvement over my original Ricoh Theta, but then didn’t do much with it last year, due to having to keep my leg elevated due to cellulitis. The camera wasn’t lost – I knew where it was, but it had turned into an anticlimax.

The one downside of the higher resolution camera was that it eats batteries.

Not planning any live performances, as my hand isn’t sound enough to be reliable. But I’d like to get some of my recent compositions recorded, and also I want to do some video for Food Adventure

So, after experimenting with one or two cheaper solutions that just annoyed me, I have gone for this. A Zoom Q8 Video Camera. I picked it up second hand, but in excellent condition.

Since upgrading to an EOS 1100D, 2 years ago, my old Canon EOS 350D (Rebel XT) has been on the shelf. Pretty decent camera, but not worth enough to sell it.

However, the price of specialist conversions have been coming down recently, and for 80 quid I could have the internal filters removed to turn it into a full spectrum camera. This would let me use it, with appropriate external filters, both as an infra-red camera, and for astro-photography with better response in the Hydrogen Alpha band.
