Packing More Underwear
I’m turning a flippant Tweet from earlier today into a blog post. I took the JVC video camera I’m using in Afghanistan out this morning to see how it would do as a still camera.
The video cam I’m bringing to AFG takes decent stills. No need for a digi still camera. #packingmoreunderwear
The digital camera I was thinking of bringing isn’t much bigger than a pack playing cards; since I’ve jettisoned the few ounces that the camera would take up I’ll treat myself to packing an extra pair of underwear. I think I’m up to 4 in my bag. I’ll be gone for 18 days. It’s not really gross unless you think about the math.
I’ve never been big on math.
The downfall of using the JVC HM100U as a still camera is the same downfall of using it as my primary video camera; it doesn’t perform all that well in low-light situations. Most of the stories I’m reporting on will be taking place outside, so it shouldn’t be that big of an issue.
Another pair of grunders it is.
