Scenes from the Boulder and Denver Areas

We didn’t spend a lot of time in the Denver and Boulder areas, and the weather wasn’t favorable, but I filmed what I could.  If you’ve never been out there and have the chance, I highly recommend it – this video just scratches the surface!

This was filmed using a Samsung Infuse 4G and edited initially in Videomaker for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Tablet and finished with Adobe Premiere CS 5.5.  (If you ever use videomaker, be sure all of your files are saved to the internal flash drive and are not saved on an external card – trust me.)  The logo was created in Adobe Photoshop. The song “Cajun Burrow” is by Ramon and Jessica and can be found on their first album, which is self titled. Check them out at

Laguardia Airport vs Charlotte Douglas International Airport

I’ve been to both Laguardia Airport and Charlotte Douglas International Airport in the last week and they both made strong impressions.  Guess which was better?

Konny on Kony 2012 [Video]

My Siberian Husky posts a response video to all of the Kony 2012 videos.  Konny is very talkative and opinionated, so it’s only natural that he’d have an opinion on the Kony 2012 thing.


I filmed this video with my phone (Samsung Infuse 4G) and added the titles with Adobe Premiere CS 5.5.

Dogs Playing in the Backyard – Samsung Infuse 4G Video Camera Test

NOTE:  When I edited this, I screwed up the resolution.  This video is a much better example of the Infuse 4G’s video capabilities.

This video was taken with my Samsung Infuse 4G.  I thought I’d be able to do some simple edits in Windows Movie Maker, but no such luck – WMM can’t import .mp4 files.  There are conversion programs, but when you’re dealing with video editing software as primitive as WMM, why bother?

In any case, I have to say that I’m impressed with the video quality.  Sure, it’s not amazing, but for a cell phone, it’s pretty nice.  There are some manual controls and some automatic white balance controls that rivals some presets I’ve had available to me on some old camcorders.

Since I got this phone, people keep asking me if I like it, and I can’t really answer that question.  The Samsung Infuse 4G is my first smart phone, so I don’t really have any frame of reference to do a comparison with.  What I can say is it does everything I want it to do:  takes pictures (has a flash), takes video (max setting is 1280 x 720), works as a video/MP3 player and has external storage as well as internal storage.  I thought I would have trouble adjusting to typing on a touch screen, but it’s a lot easier to get used to then I thought it would be.

In any case, the video camera works well and has more manual controls then I would expect for a camera phone, but I don’t have any idea how well it stacks up against the competition.
