Trail Camera Project – Mancos, Colorado

December 27, 2011 No Comments by Michael Mauro

A years worth of trail camera pictures compiled into a 4-5 minute video…pretty cool. I grew up in a small town in Southwestern Colorado and my folks have a little bit of land so I thought it would be neat to see what we could get in a year on their property. I did quite a bit of research on several fronts before I started the project. First, I had to find a camera that would best fit the job.

Autofocus and Custom Functions with Canon 1D Mark IV

December 3, 2010 2 Comments by Michael Mauro

I’ve had my Canon 1D Mark IV’s for almost a year now and for the most part I’m really happy with them. Lately though, I’ve been second guessing the focus. Last week I’m out in the field shooting white-tailed deer and I’m really paying attention to the images as I shoot them. So I’m chimping away in the downtime…zooming in as far as I can and running around the image checking the focus. I’m not getting as many tack sharp images as I think I should be.

Photo/Video Equipment Sale

December 17, 2009 No Comments by Michael Mauro

You’ve heard of the old adage: “If you haven’t used it in a year, get rid of it”? At the end of each year we take an inventory of our equipment, identifying what hasn’t been used in a while and what will be needed for upcoming productions. We then take those two lists and determine what we want to sell to raise capital in order to reinvest in new equipment for 2010.
