Introducing my new travel companion: Dafferianus [HANDYCAMus]

This post is just to document that I bought a new video camera which will play the role of my travel companion. As usual, due to the packed schedule for project deadlines, I make a log of this a bit late. It’s a Sony Handycam DCR-HC51E, (another) low-end video camera from Sony, and it uses a miniDV tape as the recording medium. I bought it in MediaWorld Trento on 20th March 2008. In fact I’m not really satisfied with miniDV tapes, especially concerning the transferring-to-PC method that consumes quite a lot of time. But since the price was fairly cheap, I shouldn’t really complain about it ๐Ÿ™‚ In addition, it’s a Sony Handycam ๐Ÿ˜›


the Dafferianus [HANDYCAMus]

Since I bought this video camera using the monthly stipend of the Erasmus Mundus scholarship just like its predecessor, I decided to name it Dafferianus [HANDYCAMus] ๐Ÿ™‚ The idea behind the purchase of this product is that I would like to make dynamic documentations of events I’m going through. Of course my digital camera is still used for taking pictures, but additional documentations that incorporate motions will give a better ‘look & feel’ of the events. Prior to this purchase, one of my Chinese friend, Mu (another EuMI guy), purchased a video camera as well. But his main purpose was to record a Milan match in San Siro (which we will do it this Sunday). I’m not that specific, I just wanna create live documentations of anything ๐Ÿ™‚
