Party time, taking some things for granted

This is our fourth year at the annual IBM Christmas party for Children. Those of you who have been reading this blog long enough know that each year we put a caricature comparison of the kids done by the same Artist year after year..

This year is no exception!




Big Al actually remembered the kids this year! This year they have finally outgrown those same tee's they wore three years in a row. Both of them have mature faces now!

We also did the usual face painting, cookie decorating, getting balloons etc.




For the first time we attended the magic show and it was a ton of fun. Have never seen the kids this animated or happy in public in a long time. At Disney it was awe and wonder struck faces. Here is was pure glee!




Jr. gave me a nice pose. The little one erased part of her X-mas tree and was refusing to pose.. she is turning into a mini me. Cannot stay still in any place for more than a few seconds... she was just whizzing through the whole thing!







They do a really great job of decorating the place each year with a different type of tree (one year is green, one year is white, etc.) and the whole thing is extremely well organized!




We are all aware of the real Santa. Still the allure of sitting on Grandpa Claus and getting a picture is fun! The kids loved it.




If you do look at the youtube video link in this post, have tried to explain the issue on the video in the Youtube description. If you have any pointers towards the real problem or a fix, please let me know...

Another year has almost rolled by and is coming to a close. It has been a tough year that is coming to a close. Counting days at work, at home, over the phone with relatives..

Hope we count down the remaining days without any major issues!

the top row of caricatures are Jr. and bottom row is the little one taken in december 2007,8,9,10.

the video when played through youtube does not show any problem. it is nice and smooth.

when the .mov file is played on my lenovo T60, there is a jitter every few seconds.. like the video is slipping and playing catchup.

pretty sure now that this is not a camera problem. it is a file viewing issue on quicktime or an issue with my laptop when trying to view the file directly.

youtube must be doing something with the framerate to fix this during upload?!

video experts, please help!

update

problem happens when watching it on youtube or quicktime when it it full screen on laptop.

when watching it on a small window or at half size or at lower resolutions like 640p there is no issue..

maybe the laptop struggles to process the video at full screen 1080p !!

san will kill me if I try to upgrade my laptop using the camera as an excuse...
