Critical camera testing Nikon B500 out the back of the Darwin Aviation Museum.
Great little camera when you don't want to lug more serious gear around. If I accidentally run a coach or an extremely big truck (with shitloads of wheels) over it by mistake I won't lose too much sleep. Such things DO happen - but I will not go into detail about those.
All footage is straight from the camera. No post whatsoever - not even the screengrab.
I bought this camera from a pawn shop. It cost very little. I bought it because taking professional gear wherever you go (daily) takes its toll on the gear. Nikon resilience is legendary, but I did wear-out some expensive Nikon gear that travelled wherever I went in Japan for twenty years.
So, for day-to-day use I am testing this little fella.
So far the only real shortcoming is that you can't fit filters.
FJR ride. Other wee installments with NO NUDE FEMALE TERMITES include; Dundee Beach, Berry Springs, Adelaide River, Manton Dam, Humpty Doo. All not too far from Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia (where it gets ferkin' hot). I'll upload those when I get time to do more editing and am sober.
On this ride I melted one camera, wore the front brakes out, fried my legs, burnt my arms... but that's nothing compared to the poor bugger on the Beemer who delaminated his back tyre near Berry Springs in the heat.
Re-hydrated with shjtloads of VB last night. Day off today. More vids from the ride to follow when I get time to do more editing - providing I'm sober.
Sorry to all those pervs who thought this video had hot naked women (previous upload of this same video with dubious titling). NO HOT NUDE WOMEN HERE AT ALL. :-( No Tits, Whistling Kites, Pie-eyed Herons, Green Pygmy Geese or Spliney-Legged Gypsie Darters either!
IMPORTANT NOTICE; Animals WERE harmed while making this dang video. Will take a while to clean the buggers off the bike.
Boxing Day ride to Lake Keepit with a mate, Jason.
Bike kept cutting out. Engine kept croaking. Instruments went silly.
Had wired-in some extra V-Sys cameras and mucked around with powering 'em. Turned out I had not tightened a battery connector! Oops!
The FJR 1300 Yamaha still got me there and back though.
