Odblog: Disgo v Sony for fieldwork
Disgo v Sony for fieldwork
Categories: Gegraphy GeneralThe weather here today and yesterday has been horrendous, but as the family were getting a bit stir crazy, we went out in the car for a bit and during a break in the weather managed to stop for a while. This place is an old fishing haunt (literally, as The Applebank pub just out of shot has a history of ghosts) and we were messing around taking photos of the kids when these were shot. One was with a Sony k800i, the other with a Disgo handheld basic videocam. The Sony quality is much poorer, but the Disgo goes through AAA batteries very quickly. Here is the Disgoand now the Sony;To illustrate the point, the disgo ran out of batteries 4 seconds in. I think the Disgo, batteries in plentiful supply, would be very good for students on local fieldwork or foreign trips such as the Alps for better quality clips which can be used back in class. I wonder how the battery drain compares to a flip cam?
