Picture In Picture Video

A few months ago, I bought a new HD digital camcorder. The main reason for buying a new one was because I wasn't impressed with the low light quality that my other HD camera was offering.

I do have my other one for sale, but for the time being, I've decided to try and do some picture in picture videos (ie PiP). It involves setting up both cameras and tripods, and recording the train with both, and having a smaller version of one of the shots on screen with the main shot. Of course, that's how I'm doing it.

Yesterday, Saturday, I decided to venture out on a muggy afternoon to try and catch CN 406 westbound. Due to the heat, they had a 25mph speed restriction, which added an hour on to the trip. At around 16:20AST, CN 406 is westbound through Rothesay, New Brunswick. This is mile 78.46 of the CN Sussex Subdivision, a few miles outside of Saint John, NB.

As you can see, I have a bit more of an improvement to do when it comes to the picture in picture. I should have angled the zoom in shot more to the center of the train, so it wouldn't have gotten cut off of the zoom in.

Oh well, just another thing to remember for next time.
