Last year Karmac started a thread where one can can post a link to his/her cruise photos.

 

Member MsMinx suggested we set up a similar thread for videos, so here it is. This way all videos are here in one spot.

 

And all the current posters can look at them again if they wish without having to search through threads.

 

Happy posting.

Thanks for this. I'll start posting here from now on.

 

BTW if anyone wants to find any of my timelapse cruisecam vids quickly, just go to http://youtube.com/MagicTyger

Great job Neilius, I love seeing what new cruise cam stuff you've put together and always scrolled back down the threads in case I missed one. Fantastic now I can just keep an eye on this one :D

Here's a timelapse video of the Moon Setting last night as seen from Pacific Star, somewhere between Fiji and Vanuatu.

 

Sorry but the picture's a bit grainy. That happens when you try night shots on a web cam :)

 

 

Hope you enjoy it.

In the footsteps of Neil, but with nowhere near the finesse. Thanks for your idea of posting these caps Neil, and your help.

 

I hope I get better, but can't promise anything. Have had a play with Camtasia over the past day or so, and have posted a bit of a clip to Youtube. Clip is of Sun Princess in Alaska a couple of hours ago. I have noticed that the dawns there have a very blue look, and am hoping to get lucky with a perfect sunrise soon.

 

 

I have 20 mythical brownie points to the first to name the tune & artist.

 

Also have captured Pacific Sun leaving Sydney last night. Will try to do something nice with this on the weekend.

 

I hope to capture plenty of Sun Princess moments between now & the end of the year.

 

Cheers,

Geoff

That was great. I was hanging out for more by the time it ended (which in show biz is how you're sposed to leave 'em).

 

I'll have to forego the brownie points, but I'll be watching this thread with interest as I'd love to hear more of the music too.

 

BTW My guess is that at this time of year the Alaskan sunrise would take ages. The blue dusk / dawn looks great doesn't it?

Well done :) I love watching the ships going in and out of port :) Looking forward to seeing some more. No idea about the song either, as this silly PC I use at work doesn't have sound :( Boo hoo. Will watch it again though when I get home :)

I have the same problem at work. They run a Citrix system off a server, so it lacks sound as well as not being able to customise anything.

 

Have hacked together another one. Played with a couple more features on this one to pad it out to 2 mins.

 

 

Bit dark & grainy, but hopefully will bring back some good memories to anyone that has sailed out under the coathanger under lights.

Can anyone spot the Pies or sayaguru on deck?

 

Won't upload anymore till I can capture some longer footage.

Have got a bit more practice with the software. This sunrise gets me nearly every week, with Sun Princess cruising into Tracy Arm on her Inside Passage cruise. Some of these blue tones are sooo nice!

 

Anyone heard of the Beatles? - they had more than one song with SUN in it.

 

 

I have tracked down an obscure song for the Pacific Star, and hope to find some magic moments to match it soon.

 

Jo,

Have you got anymore hiding on your hard drive? I like what I have seen so far.

 

Cheerios,

Geoff

Geoff, that was stunning! I absolutley loved it :) Well done :D

 

I don't have any more Pac Star's tucked away, but I did capture the Grand Princess arriving in Dublin a couple of weeks ago. I just haven't done anything with it yet. Will have a play with it over the wkend :)

The promised Regal Princess

is now on Youtube.

 

Different choice of music, a modern take on an old classic. When I was thinking Regal Princess coming soon, the tune jumped into my head and I tracked it down.

 

When listening, thought a parallel love story here on CC that kinda fits the tune too.

 

For anyone not "into" youtube, it is worth registering and giving it a try just for the video Neil has linked in the previous post.

I have been hoping to capture a happy ending for the Pacific Star's run of problems the last month or so. The storm & damage, the delays, weeks without a deckcam. Was waiting for the return to Brisbane cruise to leave a couple of days ago, then yesterday, then this morning.

 

Oh well, no happy ending yet, but the saga I have captured is on Youtube. Amazed at the number of clicks these get when they get linked from the Cruise Critic home page.

 

 

Cheers

well i added to the clicks.

that has to be the best song you have chosen yet,

 

AND i am certainly wishing on a star that the problems get sorted out so our next batch of cruisers get to sail.

 

thanks again

Latest upload inspired by some pics that Karmac posted of cruise ships in Olden, Norway.

 

A beautiful, serene looking port.

I've had this footage sitting on a tape in my video camera since May, finally got around to making it up and posting it. It's Pacific Star berthed at Portside Wharf on May 12th, taken from a boat on the river.

Guys i've added my video of the Star departing Portside on Saturday to youtube.

 

HERE'S a link :) I've pointed out Mac & Trudy (Mac37) in the video for the other CCers to 'meet' them :)

 

You can see a lot of damage to the hull on both sides - rather disappointing, but hey, at least she's sailing! :D

I've added a couple more videos to the wonderful world of YouTube :)

 

The first one is SouthAussie100's sailaway video. I've also added it to her "Last Post" thread.

 

The other one is a little timelapse video I had a bit of a play with last week when the Pacific Star was sailing back to Brisbane in bad weather.

Both vids are great. I think the URL's in your post got a bit mucked up when I tried to click on them. But I finally found them at:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=frAWIhRDLd4

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TXGpoZhiRr8

 

By the way, the ship's whistle in the sailaway is fantastic.

I am not trying to be parochial, just want to highlight just how special Sydney Harbour is for a sailaway.

Yesterday, I noticed that Dawn Princess was departing San Francisco, so I figured it was an ideal time to capture the ship as it sailed under the Golden Gate Bridge.

I have seen & read so much of this from the other side of the Pacific, of how special this departure is. I am sure all departures are great, but compared to Sydney Harbour with the Coathanger, Opera House, Pinchgut etc - I just hope we appreciate that we have it as good as it can be. I will probably get the SF departure edited this week for comparison.

 

Looking forward to sailing out under the Harbour Bridge on Sun Princess, where there is only a 4 metre gap between the two.

 

Cheers

Well said, Geoff!

 

I totally agree. Sydney is a spectacular harbour. I enjoy taking videos of it. We're lucky to have it.

I thought you might be interested in this video I did of Emerald Princess in Venice. I'm going to let the people on the Princess board know, but I thought I'd share it with everyone here too.

 

It's a bit longer than usual because she was in port for over 48 hours.

Hi Neil,

 

That's a great video. Venice looks like a beautiful city (at least viewed from the cruise cam!). What a terrific choice of music from one of the great tenors of the modern world. I love Pavarotti's Nessun Dorma.
