Last night, I went with my kids and their friends to the little village that's 5 miles away from us. They have a little one day festival type thing, then end the night with fireworks. Since I wasn't able to watch fireworks on the 4th of July, I was excited to go.
Every year I take photos of the fireworks but this year, I decided to try and video them too. My camera is a Canon T3i and it's supposed to have professional quality HD video built in. I'd never tried using it before though, so I was fumbling around in the dark trying to figure it out lol. I couldn't believe though, how much it hurt me to video it. I had to tape a little, then shut the video off, then tape a little. A minute or so into the third taping, I had to ask my daughter to take it. I was left with horrible neck, shoulder and arm pain, and it put a charley horse in the middle of my back. Even with the first taping I did, I missed having it centered and getting it all in, due to the pain it was causing me to hold the camera up aimed at the sky.
