Lake Superior Provincial Park, Ontario

Camped by the road. Hungry.

Met a guy today also cycling across Canada with a video camera – see – though doing it West to East. He has a very ingenious set up for his camera. The camera itself is in the back panier but a lens, or some kind of small surveillance camera, is on a gantry mounted just behind his handlebars. With that he can film the road in front of him just by flicking a switch on the bike, and he can turn the camera around and film himself cycling along.

I wish I’d prepared more for this trip.

He showed me some of the video he’d shot and it looked very steady – far more so than my handheld stuff.
