My wife and daughter (not pictured) were invited to participate in a shoot for a local television news feature about women rock climbers. You could count on your fingers the number of hours of video I have shot in my lifetime, so it was interesting for me to watch the videographer at work. She told me that the Sony HD cam she was using is capable of recording about 30 minutes of video on an 8 gb CF card (the video geeks reading this can probably chime in and tell us exactly what camera she’s using). These cameras are fairly new to the station.

I spent most of my time belaying the climbers, but I was able to catch a few behind-the-scenes images with my G7 that I had in my pocket. In this image the videographer is perched on the same rock I used when I did a stock photo shoot at the same location.
