My Filming Rig.

I am attempting to create a legitimate podcast for The Wired Kayaker. I need to research more on what equipment and software I would need to make a good podcast. I used Adobe Premier 2.0 and PhotoShop Elements 4.0 to create the final video and podcast title. I used my Sanyo Xacti C4 to film and my Gorillapod to capture the video portions. I also used my Canon SD800is on my QuikPod to get the title image and various photos while paddling. The music for the podcast is Bright, Driving 2007. I downloaded this royalty free from Incompetech.com.

My paddle today was on the Bungay River. I paddled for about 2 hours and had a very good time. I saw plenty of turtles, birds and two water snakes. I ended up losing my hat, but I recovered it. I also made an outtakes video. That chronicles the loss of the hat and other misadventures.

The Wired Kayaker Podcast #1 – Outtakes

Here are some photos that I took with my Canon SD800is.

What I really need to make a great podcast is the Sanyo Xacti VPC-E1 6MP Waterproof MPEG4 Camcorder. Well, if I can get the money together to buy one or get some sponsorship for this podcast it may turn into something very interesting.

I paddle mostly around New England and the only other place I have gone has been Aruba. I want to learn more places to go so that The Wired Kayaker Podcast is more exciting.

Also you may notice that I am wearing a cowboy hat in the podcast. I will be wearing hats of many different kinds, if you have a hat that you want me to wear in a podcast leave me a comment and we can discuss. If you are a kayak rep or kayak manufacturer and would like me to do a show on your product or gadget let me know in the comments and we can discuss it.

And Speaking of discussions, I have a Wired Kayaker Forum that you are welcome to join. We can discuss trips, locations, gear, and this podcast.

    Oh drew! Why have I not been over here before? Its wonderful, I realy enjoyed your podcasts – it’s so cool! And your accent is really cool too!

    I would love to go kayaking, I’ve been a few times and thoroughly enjoyed it.

    It’s also lovely to see the scenery over there…for me it’s like a whole different world!

    You need water proof camera and some turtle food

  10. Drew says:

    Thanks Stephen. I hope to get a WP camera soon. Turtles can fend for themselves.

    Fun stuff. I especially enjoyed the outtakes. ;-) I grew up in Massachusetts canoeing on the Charles River, but now we live close to where the California gold rush started (in the foothills of the northern Sierras). It’s mostly rivers and lakes here but we do enjoy getting out on the Pacific Ocean when we can. Happy paddling!

      Keith,
      Thanks very much. I see that you are still doing the kayak thing with your kayak review. nice. That is something I would definitely like to do sometime, review some kayaks.
