Tugboat Captain’s Point of View

Here’s a video I made showing a tugboat captain’s point of view as his boat pushes a loaded barge out of the Schuylkill River to a dock on Delaware River.

The video was made with the tiny Osmo Pocket Camera, which did a great job considering the conditions. In any case, now you can see what the captain sees. Enjoy.

Passenger View, video

The weather was just about perfect for flying yesterday, clear skies, light winds, and an airplane available. I mounted a small video camera on the right seat, for a view of the flight. The following video takes a look to the side and slightly forward from a Cessna 172 during take-off, a short cruise, and landing. Take a look:

More flying videos are on the way, weather and funds permitting. Next time I’ll position the camera straight ahead. Hopefully, it will be another smooth day or else the footage gets jostled about a bit too much. Either way, can’t get enough of this kind of footage. The little GoPro camera is not the most sophisticated, but it does the job. I wish I had three of them.
