Here I’m testing a new inexpensive digital camera. It’s a Vivitar model DVR 785HD with up to 5.1 megapixel still image resolution. Also, it can record 720p high definition video with monophonic sound from the built-in microphone and the camera can be used underwater.
The video was shot with only normal lights in my kitchen and living room and it features a bicycle horn underwater, various items in my kitchen and a very uncooperative action figure of Moses. Look close and you will see the original Booper (Super Booper) which I made in the 1970s. Don Joyce sent it to me for repair. It appears the problem is with the battery holder.
I spent a few days trying to make the sound louder and clearer without adding distortion. I used “envelope” in Adobe Audition to manually affect the audio level. What do you think? I may have done too much or not. In addition, I added reverberation on the last moment of sound at the end of each part. Enjoy!
Here is my Golden Grain STIR-N-SERV 1 Pan Lasagna commercial from the early 1970s, which I captured from 16 millimeter film. Be sure to cheek this out on my YouTube page, and see my other Golden Grain ad for Macaroni and Cheddar.

Here’s something I made fairly quickly without too much thought. It’s all computer generated VST. I’ll add more descriptions another time. I’m tired!
This is a recording of an analog, audio only baby room monitor from September eighteenth of this year. It was received on my software defined radio in my computer, located in my living room. The reception is very poor, and at first I thought it was unusable. After listening to the recording, I noticed that enough of the sound revealed the baby was extremely upset. The poor reception, I think, made this recording more disturbing.
Here is another screen capture of my software defined radio. See my post “Screen Capture Test ” for more information. This time I used Daum Potplayer to capture the image and made a flash file “on the fly,” simultaneously. I noticed the aspect ratio was not standard like 640×480, but 958×718, which is still close to 4×3. Let me know if you can view the video.

The following two videos(as I learn how to do screen captures better) will look best when downloaded and played back in their native resolution, 640 by 480 and 1280 by 720, respectively. These will have better audio, as well.
