Warming up, piling rocks

After several weeks of no pool, I'm getting back on the table to hit a few and see if I have remembered how a stroke works. It was also a good opportunity to check out the new Flip HD video camera which is the simplest, smallest video recorder I have seen. I put it on a mini tripod for stability and put in on the fireplace mantel, and pushed the big red button. That's all there is to it. Comes with its own built-in USB connector and software.

As for the pool, I'm just hitting them nice and easy. Slow rolling if possible, just to get the feel of the stroke basics. I would typically hit a few racks like this to warm up before getting into some serious drills where I would record the results or a competition.

Watching this video tells me that I want to stay down on the shot longer (among other things). I think I also had some schmutz on the lens. It doesn't look HD to me!
