(Almost) Forgotten Hmong Gems


As you may know, I recently spent some time traveling the world. Somewhere between East and West, I forgot about a handful of short Quicktime videos I shot with my little Nikon Coolpix 5200. Man, I wish I'd used that feature more often. When you're traveling with an expensive HD cam, you often find yourself caring more about video quality than about the captured moments themselves. Sure, the little Nikon didn't take world's best videos, but it did go everywhere, and instant playback was a huge hit with the Hmong kids in northern Laos.

Check out more pics in my Laos Flickr collection.

I know exactly what you mean. I really enjoy shooting with my digital camera because of how quick it is to playback and get on your computer to edit. No tapes, no capturing; I love it! However I do a lot of video blogging where i shoot myself which is hard with no screen to see my frame in. So I tend to shoot more of those with my handicam.

Sorry for the late comment, busy couple of weeks for me ;)
