Technological Problems

Today was the reunion/tea at the refurbished Minegishi house. Sue Kikuchi invited and members of the Motomatsu, Abo, and Sato families were present. Notes and photographs will be posted soon.

I was ready with both my Canon Pixma camcorder and Sony HD Cybershot. I trust these cameras. But I made a mistake when I tried to load a new SD card into the camcorder. I ended up shoving a Sony memory stick in the slot. Of course I couldn’t get it out. Well, crum. I thought I had another SD card. I didn’t. But once the mistake was made, I couldn’t have used it anyway. Good reason to have cameras with compatible cards. I’d really like a Canon with more pixals so if I have a windfall, this will be on the list. Another problem. The last two times I have imported Sony movies from the Cybershot into IMovie, the playback is too fast. Solved this today by converting the clips and using the speed slide to change the speed. But this is odd. I still use the Sony movie option as backup even though quality is nothing like the Canon. I changed the speed slider so that I am going to 80% to get the sound right.
