Before I plunk down money for that Gakkenflex I saw being sold locally, I thought I’d try my luck with Mijonju’s Gakkenflex Giveaway contest. I’m extremely lucky when it comes to raffles – might as well have a go at this.

Note to readers. It borders on the ridiculous to try and edit video using a weak-ass one year old netbook. It just doesn’t have the juice to handle video editing software, especially when your camera captures video in 720p.  I’m using a Kodak Playsport to shoot video, ArcSoft Media Impression to do minor edits, FormatFactory to convert from .mov to .wmv then Picasa to put it all together. Tedious, but until I get a desktop that can handle the processing requirements of video editing, I’m stuck wif this.
