Raw Video: Myers Gulch Road House Fire

I shot this video at a structure fire on the morning of April 22, 2011. I was actually on my way up to shoot a follow up picture at another fire when I heard about this one on my public safety scanner. I will post a couple of photos from the chaos of last weekend when I get a chance. For now, take a look at the video.

This week Canon announced the PowerShot S95, an update to their popular advanced point and shoot the PowerShot S90. After reviewing some of the added features I think I am sold.

Here’s a quick list of the new features.

  • 720p HD at 24fps Video Recording with Stereo Sound
  • 3.0inch PureColor II G LCD Display, 461k-dot
  • HDR shooting mode (really? embrace the light, don’t fight it)

  • 1st Canon point and shoot to use the Hybrid IS
  • Revised Control Dial with Better Click-stops for Settings
  • XDHC Card Compatibility
