Beach Shoot #6 - Hummer #2

Date: 2003-10-27


Exactly the same as Hummer #1, but a retry so as to actually get a video this time.


Worked OK.

The rain finally let up, with an hour or so of darkness left.

Not quite as good as #1, but that seems to always be the way. This was done on the driveway outside and ran down hill a little, chasing the camera girl, LOL!

This one maxed-out at around 650 Hz, then did a stair-case style spin down, as it danced down hill. Each impact washing off a step of RPMs, followed by an in-air much more gentle spin-down.

Note the line-splitting, which suggests to me precession or tumbling modulating the spin-frequency. It didn't start until the hummer was bouncing down the hill.
