View Full Version : Graupel

We just had about 10 mins of graupel (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graupel) that came out of nowhere.

I was recording it on my camcorder for 5 mins, only to find out that as it died down and I stopped the camcorder, I was actually just STARTING it. GRRRR!!! The frickin thing hardly gives any notice that you're recording. There's a little red REC in the top right, but there's also a big red REC on the bottom (so you can use the flip-out viewfinder button to record also), and the battery light was low being shown in red.

GRRR! Nothing more frustrating to think you're getting a great shot of something really neat for 5 mins, only to find out you were just watching it through the viewfinder. :mad:
