    Just wondering.
    If I upload a video that is 1.8 Gb in size to YouTube, am I actually uploading 1.8 Gigs ?
    Am I really taxing my data plan that hard?
    Guessing yes, but need to ask.

    Thanks!

    Data plan lol what a scam, these mobile phones are becoming ridiculous too, use your Home Internet/WiFi ... or even a Cyber Cafe ... whichever is cheapest, $220 a month jeez you could buy a house for that!!!

    Wasn't good enough to burn almost 2G of data, lol.
    Was just practicing some night shots.
    Not great, but here are a few stills from around Nome.

    Playing around with long exposures, fun.

    Best I can remember, (because I was trying out all the different settings while shooting),

    I turned the camera to manual, not auto,
    Set the the ISO to 100 and shutter speed to 8 seconds.
    And slowly rotated the phantom while the photo was being taken.

    Yup, your going to use 2 gigs on a video of that size. Are you a miner or a local native?

    Yea, me too :) I retired mostly with my California mining income in 2011. An old friend, "No Neck Dan" worked up there in Nome every summer for many years. He loved the money but really hated the surf and being constantly swept by the tide. Then he would come back here in the winter and tell us all of his horror stories and said it was worth every penny... lol. That was back in the 90's until a few years ago. I was invited up a number of times but I was always making good money right here on the old family claims. The 7 pounder in my mom's hands took 1st place at the state fair here every year until we retired it.
