Re: [Debconf-video] whether to ship xfxf's camera



Dear All,

I am planning to conduct interviews with people for a documentary in NYC:

http://www.drumbeat.org/project/internet-futures

So, I will be carrying a Sony HDV HCR-HC1 and a lav mic with me to
Debconf. It is not an ideal cam, but... it has pretty decent picture
quality.

I can get an external light and we can use my laptop for video editing
or streaming if needed as well. Just let me know!

best,
Luis Felipe.
