Ok so this is my first try at doing the video thingy (is why it is in the planning thread  :-[ )
... got my self one of these little mini cameras (SQ11 mini DV):


Which will sit (kinda) on one of these (Dapol 2A-000-016 Chassis for 7-plank open wagon):


With a great big one of these pushing around the track:


I'm not sure if the couplings work correctly!


In any case, this was the (best) result so far ... with a guest appearance by yours-truely!

I thought everything was going OK ... right up until it fell off the tracks!  :'(

Oh-Hum ... will try again later. Cheers  :beers:

I bow to you video fiends!

I only realised the size of this equipment when I had to put me glasses on to see the rainbow stripe  :(

Hi GreyWolf,

Great stuff. I've only just got to grips (ish) with ordinary pics.

Also, nice to put a face to a name. You do look slightly concerned and rightly so as it turned out  :D.

Keep up the good work.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Thanks for the encouragement gents! @weave ... I look harrased more likely! SWMBO reminded me we'd not had our breakfast yet!

Cheers  :beers:

Off to try another run ... more later!

That's the 2nd vid from an SQ11 I've seen this week so may look into procuring one. Can I ask where you sourced yours please?

Got it from good old Amie Zon - cheap as chips!

https://smile.amazon.co.uk/Pawaca-Camcorder-Recorder-Infrared-Detection/dp/B075XLD9W7/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1527951274&sr=8-2&keywords=sq11+mini+camera&dpID=41IKDR9BsmL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch

Only takes a 32GB SD card (no matter what it says on the box!) ... and the operation is a bit odd. But it works!  :claphappy:

L'esprit de Lavaux - field trip
« Reply #38 on: September 29, 2018, 06:33:27 pm »
We had the chance for a field trip today!  :claphappy:

Something to consider as a feature perhaps?


Got up close to the Viaduct to check out the details ...

And to see how it sits into the landscape.


Then a visit to Grandvaux Gare:

Notice anything odd here ... take your time.


Took a few shots of the vineyards too! Here's one.


Cheers  :beers:

Hi,

Good to see construction pics rather than normal net pics.

Thanks for sharing.

Cheers weave  :beers:

PS The clock times are wrong. I did notice before enlarging and noticing you named the photo 'twin clocks'  :)
