Mfolosi Day Trip

A drizzly day, not much to report. I was learning about the new little Canon pocket camera. Haven’t worked it out yet. When we got home I saw it took video all the time we thought we were just focusing for still shots!

So aiming for this:

Cape (glossy) Starling

We got this (except much longer):

Martial Eagle and Common (steppe) Buzzard

Also, I lost my tracker! Jess is normally heads-up, spotting everything and saying ‘What’s that?’ and all I have to do is ID what she’s spotted. Today her head was firmly down, eyes glued to her cellphone. ‘Dad, there’s no signal!’ and ‘Omigod! I got two bars! Oh damn, they’re gone!’

There’s a boyfriend, see.

Bummer. That’s why I made the feature pic an Impala bum.

Ah! Now I see: I had the camera on Hybrid Auto mode, ‘whereby 2-4 seconds of video is captured before each still image and later combined into a 720p digest movie chronicling your day.’ That’s what I saw and wondered where it came from!

  1. The next version of the camera will replace the operator so you can focus on your cell phone
