Everio Video Hunters! The End of the Year is Finally Here. Let’s Shoot the Illuminations!

Hello everyone, this is Sakura.
It's only a few days until the end of this year. The cold weather is hitting us daily, so it seems winter is really kicking in.
The Everio Video Hunters began shooting videos for this blog in January of this year and this will be the final article for 2010. There are beautiful illuminations everywhere at this season, so I've decided to go illumination hunting! I even decorated the Everio, giving it a chic new look!

Everio Video Hunters! Special Report! Gingko Trees in the Outer Gardens of Meiji Shrine

Hi there! It's Boss again.
For the last two weeks in a row, I brought you articles on autumn leaves, but this week I have a special report.
When I was shooting footage for the autumn leaves articles it was around the beginning of November, and the leaves had just begun to turn. Now, in December, the Tokyo leaves are taking on darker colors, and I thought it looked like just the right time to go video hunting.
Then, on the evening of the 2nd, an unseasonal storm suddenly struck Tokyo, only to disappear by the following morning, leaving a beautifully clear autumn sky in its wake.
On a clear day such as this after a storm, I, as a member of Video Hunters, simply cannot sit still.

Hi there, it's Ayako again.
Following up on last week's article, I'd like to tell you more about my trip to Showa Kinen Park to get some footage of autumn landscapes.

After getting up close to the Cosmos flowers, I found honeybees busily helping themselves to the nectar inside.
This week, I'm going to use the Everio to plunge deep into the world of macro shooting!

Everio Video Hunters! Off to Shoot Autumn Cosmos Flowers!

Hello! It's Ayako.
In Japan, there is a proverb that says: "A woman's heart and autumn weather are fickle." And actually, we also say, "A man's heart and autumn weather are fickle." These expressions compare the nature of men and women to the ever-changing weather in autumn in Japan. With sudden downpours coming just as you thought the sky had cleared, shooting footage at this time of year involves a fair bit of weather-watching. Nonetheless, the autumn skies show different faces from day to day, and the autumn colors and flowers can be really beautiful.

Everio Video Hunters! It’s Dog Walking Time!

Hi there, it's Eri. Do any of you readers have a pet?
In my house, we have an eight year-old Shih Tzu dog called Robin.
We adore him, so we have loads of pictures of him around the house.
But actually, we've never shot any video of him just going about his day to day business.
So, I decided to use an Everio GZ-HM550 to take some footage of him having his walk.

Although the blistering heat in Tokyo is reaching temperatures of over 30 degrees Celsius, the hot summer is when we should all enjoy being active!

We also planned to set up a day camp by the lakeside after kayaking. This was going to be a pretty exciting day.
