January Morning

Winter has arrived in Western New York - at least for the weekend - and I decided to test out the recording capabilities of my iPhone. The results are so-so. 

My iPhone will not replace my nice camera and camcorders, but it does take decent shots for those spontaneous times. When I was shooting video, if I moved away from or closer to my subject the phone struggled with staying in focus. That also happened with taking still shots - it did not adjust its focus to subtle changes in distance, so I had to swing the phone away and then try again until I had the right composition in focus. To be fair, it is an exceedingly gloomy day, my fingers were frozen, and it is tough for most consumer-level cameras to shoot in that combo of poor light and white snow (and frozen fingers). In any case, I had fun on this brisk Saturday morning with my animal friends. For video of this morning, check out the next post ...
