    I got a new video camera recently, and we decided to see if it does any good at long range. You can see a good trace, if you watch it in full screen and HD. There are a couple more vids under my youtube user name. We got it handed to us by the wind (and lack of skill/ technique), but it was fun....

    Looks great! Does this camera have an eye piece (view finder) too, or just the flip out screen to view? I have had some problems getting my camera on target at long distances as I have trouble seeing the screen in bright conditions. I want to get a new one and insist on the next having a veiw finder to look through.

    Thanks for the info.
