As a follow up to my post on my first photos with the Canon SD890, I thought I’d upload and share a few of the video clips I’ve shot with it and help give you an idea of what’s is capable of, and what it’s not.
The first one I shot was taken back in September, when it was still nice out here in Chicago. A little background, a few coworkers and I spent most of the summer rollerblading during our lunch break, and this little clip was me following them down the overpass on our normal route. As you can tell, the audio isn’t that great on a windy day when you’re whizzing down a fairly steep hill, but it kind of clears up near the end.
From a spec standpoint, the Canon SD890 records in the standard AVI video format with only Mono audio. You can find out a little bit more (but not much) on the official Canon specs for this camera. They don’t call out the video very often, since it’s likely just an afterthought.
