Although the little pocket Sony Cybershots I took with us to Hawaii do have the ability to shoot short digital movies, they aren't *really* camcorders, so these are relatively low-res and jittery. But especially when trying to get decent pictures underwater (where *maybe* one in five of the still pictures I took was decent, and less than half of those might be worth showing to anyone), I found that shooting quick videos actually worked better than trying to catch something more or less in the viewfinder. I took most of these, but let Ari take the camera a few times, which resulted in some um, rather unsteady POV. If you're prone to motion sickness, you've been warned. Oh, and you might want to turn down the speakers, too, at least "By Land" - quite a bit of wind noise on most of these (and almost nothing you'll actually want to hear).
All of these are in MPG format, 640x480x24b, (filesize) is approximate.
