This week brought us the first day of spring. It also brought us a lot of ice and below-freezing temperatures, so it’s not too late to post a sledding video. In fact, we could probably title this “Sledding into Spring.”

We shot this over a few sledding trips to the local hill in December and January to try the Action Shot camera our son got for Christmas. It works OK, with the exception of the strobe effect that kicks in when it’s pointed at the snow. I guess it gets confused and tries to white balance. We also used my daily carry Pentax W90, which didn’t strobe out.

During one of the runs, the one that goes between two trees, the Action Shot pops off the head of our son’s friend. Our son rushes over to look at the camera and then checks on his buddy.

We can’t wait to try out the camera this summer. In the meantime, check out our other videos at our YouTube channel.
