Fresh Fish in Vouliagmeni

Fresh Fish in Vouliagmeni – Varkiza

To get away from the computer ahead of yesterday’s Ycademy online Seminar, I went for a stroll at the picturesque fishing port of Varkiza next to Vouliagmeni.

I have brought back some nice pics as well as a short clip demonstrating what we mean when we talk about fresh fish :-).

I have shot with a small point and shoot Leica C-Lux 3. To make it a bit more difficult for the Cam I took some distance and zoomed into the scene. The cam shoots 30 fps in HD QuickTime .mov format. I have pulled it to Windows Live Movie Maker, then to Adobe Media encoder before loading the clip to YouTube. At YouTube you can watch the clip in various formats up to 1080 p HD!

Even after YouTube compression, the result remains suprisingly good considering that the cam comes with the size of a credit card and is less thick than 1 inch.

While the Windows Movie has a file size of over 23 MB, the flash compression as used by YouTube reduces the size to below 1 MB, while preserving HD Quality.
