Cameras a Go-Go!
Well, the cameras and cables should be arriving from Eco-Watch today, a full two weeks earlier than expected. This is great news, and we're looking forward to testing them out. Of course, they'll have to sit and wait for a period of mild, settled weather before we can fit them to the Cathedral's nesting platform. Meanwhile, we've heard that BBC TV is still keen to provide equipment to capture footage on DVD for broadcasting. This means we may also be able to play previous day's film inside at least one of our Museums for visitors to watch, as well as fulfil our main target of getting live pictures out onto the internet. Shown here is the larger of the two camera mounts in the supplier's workshop. We've asked for them to be painted matt black so that they aren't visually obtrusive.
