The outback South Australian adventure now over and the stories posted, it was time to settle down and work out the photography of the trip.
We had invested in an on board video camera to record the trip, and any interesting aspects that may appear as we were driving, it was all trial and error as we progressed.
The camera we purchased was not that expensive, and quite good clarity and colour, the film had originally an eight hour turn around , that was to short for us so we invested in a memory card that could hold two days recording.
To download the film to a computer or notepad, you need to have to have a small attachment, which we have, but I neglected to include in the travelling equipment and left it at home.
This necessitated us shopping around for one at Port Pirie on the way back.
We were fortunate that our hosts at the Desert View underground motel had one we could borrow.
We had also invested in a tablet for downloading into via a USB. This was because not all motels or accommodation outback have computer facilities.
The next part of processing the film into a suitable form for Word press, was a headache, I tried everything from changing its properties to Photo bucket to Face book, finally tried google.
The only way was to upload to You tube but I needed an account, so I proceeded to open an account but was advised that I already had an account and was right to go, somewhere in my distant antique days I must have opened an account, what for I don’t know as I never used it.
So I selected a video clip to upload, its actually the cam recording of our driving into Coober Pedy and arriving at our underground accommodation, the Desert View motel.
To download the clip to You tube took over eighty minutes, so I have to work on an easier faster method, and also work my videos into the sequence of the journey.
I would appreciate any and all comments on my first efforts, either constructive or destructive.
At least the video clip will give you a short visual of the outback town of Coober Pedy and our accommodation.
