I got a Canon Optura20 in spring 2004, ostensibly to video windsurfing and skiing. While I did create some pretty elaborate windsurf-vacation dvd-videos, in 2008 the focus seemed to switch to shore-birds and online video hosting. Also I was not involved in digital photography other than editing other folks photos for slideshows on the dvds, but have since gotten involved with that. In fact it's through Flickr that I discovered Vimeo - many of the photos with videos pointed over here. At close of 2008 I'm still shooting miniDv in 16:9 format with an Optura60.
