First go with our Zumi Digital

 

You may have remembered me blogging about desperately wanting a Zumi digital camera here. Well, we wanted it so bad that we decided to sacrifice something that we were going to include in the wedding to get our hands on this camera!
We got it in the mail last week with a super random little plastic dinosaur from Photojojo and quickly started playing with it. It's the tiniest thing, easy to use and there's no excuse for you to not take it everywhere you go because it literally can fit in your pocket it's that small. Let me just remind you that this was our very first time using the camera so excuse the slight fingertip during the beginning of the video. I was just too excited that I had to share how the video quality came out. It's exactly what we were hoping for!
Our experience with the camera: If you're going to use it to take photos make sure there's plenty of light or else it's going to come out very dark and grainy. After taking photos with it, we decided we're most likely going to use it more for the 8mm style video it takes. It's so fun. So sit back, relax, and watch me being a nerd on a bike ride through GG Park. Can't wait to shoot more videos with our new little Zumi.
The soundtrack to this video is "New Theory" by Washed Out. We're kind of obsessed with him right now and can't imagine how our life would be now if we never heard him. Here's the video that inspired us:

radiohead in golden gate park

The Outside Lands Music Festival is next week! Tickets are a bit pricey, but as you can see there's a huge lineup for all three days. Golden Gate Park holds a lot of music festivals (most of which have all been free), but this is the first time anyone is going to perform at night, and Radiohead will be the first to ever do this. How lucky that I live just across the street from where it's all going down! I haven't bought my tickets yet, because I'm curious to see how they will block out people that are just going to squat around the gates to listen. I'm sure half the population of SF is thinking of doing this, so we'll see! But of course I'm in a dilemma because my brother just called me from New York after seeing Radiohead last week saying, "You've got to get up close..amazing". Perhaps I'll have to squeeze out the moola since there's no way I can pass up seeing Radiohead in GG Park.
