Winter Romp – February 17-20, 2012. Thanks to Bruce for hosting another year of Winter Romp. It was a blast as usual. The limited snow fall made for interesting conditions this year. My photos from the event should be up in a few days.
Winter Romp Prerun – December 10-11, 2011. I forgot my camera bag at the office, but the iPhone 4S rescued me nicely. The trails were all in excellent shape with minimal trail maintenance. We were able to prerun all Winter Romp trails in two days. Thanks to Bruce for hosting us once again. Here’s a video of me on the Rock Crawling Trail.
Wow! I am thoroughly impressed with the iPhone 4S! The video quality is amazing! I found it to be best when the camera is held relatively still. The Apple image stabilization does an excellent job keeping the video looking steady. However walking on uneven terrain, or any shaking of the camera does produce jittery looking video. These clips are straight out of the phone with no modifications. On the photo side, the dynamic range is much improved over my iPhone 3GS. Photos were edited in Lightroom with very minor adjustments.
