He went to Valley Center to help a customer install his top and tilt kit on his tractor. We talked about him taking the Vivitar cameras (the head mounts got here yesterday) and take video of the installation, but we never got around to testing them out.
So, today, I tested one out. My subject was Jackie, feeding him chicken. I boil chicken breasts and most of the cats get some of it, but Jackie and Georgie get the most. Georgie's gotten chicken on a fairly regular basis since his pancreatitis years ago and Jackie's been getting it since his neuter last year. It makes him appreciate me more, because I'm the person who gives him yummy stuff.
In the beginning of the video he's by the dining room table, then when he knows the chicken is on its way, he books to the top of the cat center. That red cat in the way is Opie.
I was pretty happy with the quality. The sound is tinny, but I can live with that. The camera wasn't heavy at all on my head. When I'm handing Katie food, you can see her looking at me. She didn't know what to think about this thing on my head. I figure for less that sixty dollars (camera, head mount and memory card) this was a decent investment. And I think it will be pretty easy for Brian to use for his installation videos.
Without further ado, here's Jackie:
