And I used and "reviewed" it, last year, in this post.
And honestly, last year's video wasn't *too* terribly awful. At least I'd rigged the thing up in a relatively good location so you could actually SEE the growth of the plants. Although the "stringing-together" of the images, using the on-board software, was pretty labor-intensive...
This year, I decided to capture The Finny Farm in all her glory! Unfortunately, the Finny Farm was tucked away in a corner that didn't lend itself well to time-lapse-video-capture. I bolted the camera (using the included bracket) to the fence that covers the pool equipment. But it was in a bad spot (narrow pathway between the plum-tree and pool equip't fence). And I did a lousy job of "aiming" the camera. I started-out being SUPER optimistic about how tall the Finny Farm 'Maters were gonna grow and I aimed the camera a little too high.
And then there was the whole "narrow walkway" thing to deal with - which resulted in the camera getting "bumped" several times thru the season. Ooooops! And then there's the whole "angle of the sun" thing to consider (which didn't play well with the camera-to-garden-aimedness!)... The Finny Farm just wasn't in a good location for filming. "Oh well, waddaya gonna do, right?!"
I did retain ONE valuable lesson from last year's experience: I set the camera for an 8:00am-8:00pm schedule (rather than "on" when it detects light - since we've got a motion-sensor light out there, and about a bazillion neighborhood cats that frequent the side-yard at night!).
I also decided to forego the onboard "string-the-jpgs-together" program for video creation - not entirely by choice, mind you (more on that, later). No, this year I downloaded a freebie video program called Windows Movie-Maker. It's actually really cool because A) You're not limited to 360 jpgs per video and B) You can actually preview the pictures and C) *Easily* dump the ones you don't want included in your "movie." D) It also has features for adding captions and narration (or music), but I wasn't feeling THAT inspired!
Okay, now that you've read all the "disclaimers" here are the Videos that I took of the Finny Farm! (Grab a cocktail, this might take awhile... Or you can skip 'em, based on my commentary!)
Finny Farm I: This was early in the season, May-June. I was entirely too optimistic and aimed the camera too high to capture anything (other than the "Volunteer" Peach-Tree which ended up with inedible peaches anyway!)
