Night shooting suckage

Unread postAuthor: Moonbogg » Tue Apr 21, 2009 4:35 am

I took some video night shooting, hoping that the green laser beam would be visible to the camera, which it was not. On top of that, I MISSED like all but 2 shots! Looking forward to making good sabots. Of course, much of it is my fault as well. Holding still is hard sometimes. All shots were at 50 wide pacesaway , about 40 yards. Some shots are zoomed in.

Hm. Vidya doesn't work. Why not just try YouTube?

Also, as to the night shooting... well of course. :lol: Video cameras do not fare very well with low-light conditions. I would try either using IR (if your camera is equipped) or an HD camera with the EV balance adjusted up.

Just don't post it here. Rule#3 no incendiary projectiles.

Otherwise we'd be up to here in petrol bomb launchers.

I know. There is no play button when I get to the site. Odds are you have copied a link from your address bar when signed in and viewing the video. Try looking for "share" options, which will give you a good URL.

You have to click the words of the video, or the little thumbnail of the video itself, then its blows up and gives a play button.
