GY-HM650's Cape Verde adventure
Filmmaker, Roy Van Baarsen, recently visited Cape Verde with his GY-HM650 ProHD camcorder to film kiteboarding professional, Elvis Nunes With its Fujinon wide angle 23x zoom lens, excellent sensitivity and optical image stabilizer, the GY-HM650 was the idea camera to capture this extreme sport, which combines aspects of wakeboarding, snowboarding, windsurfing, paragliding, skateboarding and gymnastics.
Cape Verde is the perfect destination for kiteboarding thanks to its gentle waves, reliable weather conditions and side-shore winds. “Having used the GY-HM650 on a snowkiting trip in Norway, I was excited to use the camera again” says Roy. “As well as delivering superb images, the camera is small and light in a versatile form factor, making it perfect for any type of adventure.” A perfect wave or jump is easily missed when changing lenses or cameras. The combination of a wide angle and incredible zoom makes it versatile and easy to use without switching cameras.
Thanks to Peter Lynn Kiteboarding for providing the kites.
