1. This was shot with my new Sony DSC-HX9V compact camera. This is an amaizing bit of gear for its size, weight and convenience. It has a 16x optical zoom, optical image stabalisation and shoots in full HD 1080 x 50p resolution. It was blowing a gale on the day (20+ knots) so it was a bit difficult to keep the camera steady, and I think the wind was actually buffeting the zoom lense. Still, not bad for my first go. The video is really crisp, and you can see a huge difference between this and the Panasonic DMC-FT2 footage (the wide shots) that I shot in parallel using a two camera setup.

  3. Easter is one of my favourite times to spend out on the water. It is always mayhem. A large group of fellow windsurfers and kitesurfers from all over Queensland make the pilgrimage each year to camp at Elliott Heads. We all get on really well, so its not only great fun to meet up, but the spectacle on the water is always inspiring. Unfortunately the wind can be fickle over this period. This year a big south-easterly was predicted to come through, so a bunch of guys stayed on to catch it.
