they are all the same really, get a good canon, nikon or sony, skip the other brands altogether...

make your choice based on price, battery type and zoom...

I liked my canon sx120 because it took double-a batteries and had a 10x zoom...it was 200 bucks though...there are some amazing 150 dollar canons though!

Depends on what is affordable. i'm a devotee of the Canon Powershot G series and currently in possession of the 9 (they are up to 11....which is pretty great, but i know the 12 has to be around the corner). For those look into the $500 range. Have to admit i don't do too much research on other P&Ss due to contentment. If i am going cheaper, other than the extensive research i'd end up doing, a conversation with Chris would happen. More than likely i'd stay in the Canon family due to familiarity with menus, but i'd be open to another brand if it had sweeter manual functions and a great lens.

I don't really like point and shoot that use normal batteries... makes them a little heavier than I like.

Normal batteries can be heavy, but for a long haul, being able to swap in fresh ones easily is just lovely.

i just have back up rechargables. For each camera i have 3 batteries. Lately i have been working on shooting less and never had to go for that 3rd battery by the end of the day. With the SLR, rarely had to go for the 2nd. The external flash is another story.

chiapet
07-13-2010, 08:50 PM
Yea, I also have 3 batteries for each camera. I always buy off-brand replacement batteries and never run into an issue with them. I usually don't even exhaust my first battery unless I'm doing a lot of video.

Something I bought for Glastonbury (not wishing to rely on solar chargers... who knew? :) ) was a recharger device... basically a little usb battery pack that you charge in advance, and then use to charge devices. The one I got was very cheap, came with tons of adapters for various phones and other devices, as well as having usb (normal, micro and mini).

I was able to charge my phone and ipod and even loan to others, on one charge of the battery pack. Really very happy with that purchase.

Especially at festivals. Probably use 8-12 at every Coachella. More this year because I had one of those cheap little video cameras and those things die after two songs.

10x zoom would be sweet, I will look into that.

Affordable = $200 or less. $250 at the most. And probably not until the end of the year.

Most important features...
1. picture quality
2. optical zoom
3. taking less blurry and grainy photos than what my Canon A510 does
4. replaceable batteries (whether AA or something rechargable)
5. ease of use

Scissor Sisters was also pretty good but I was buffered by you guys. That *is* the set where someone near us, if you recall, started singing along "cider! cider! cider!" to the melody of a song instead of the lyrics.

Just noticed the camera discussion on the page before.

I brought my Canon SX1 and went through around 24-28 rechargable batteries during the festival and used up almost 80 gbs of memory. I brought my netbook for the Europe trip, but had to use it to clear out a memory card on Sunday at Glasto. The HD setting on the SX1 eats memory alive, but comes out amazing in certain settings like the video above. It also has 20x optical zoom and 80x digital which is better than I can see normally, works out well when I can't see the stage from tall people.

I also had my Canon SD790 for my backup camera with 5 extra batteries. The batteries lasted my entire trip.

I wanna step it up and get a DSLR now, just don't have the extra cash yet. Maybe first thing next year. Still need a new TV and imac first.

rideincircles, apparently you met my roommate who was part of some Glasto twitter group meet up that you were in as well. He was a short bald guy with a beard named Joel that twitters all the time. I was showing him some Glasto photos in this thread and saw you were from Fort Worth. Anyway, small world or something.

07-14-2010, 09:47 AM
Yeah, that would be hobbitfrompa. I spent a couple hours at the Twitter meetup, lots of interesting folks there. I use Twitter quite a bit also, but am trying to lessen the size of my Twitter list. I think I met around 6 people at the festival from the USA total. I was the only person from Texas other than Willie Nelson and his crew.

As far as video goes, I usually try to record a song or 2 from almost every band. It used to be worse, but I do try to enjoy the experience more now. My camera burns memory with around 1 gigabyte every 3 minutes of footage using HD mode. I think I ended up with 4 muse songs, but that's the most of any band and I have seen them 4 times already. I stopped after Streets though, That was icing. I will be uploading photos and videos all week.

chiapet
07-14-2010, 11:37 AM
That is the real reason I stopped taking so many pictures -- I felt like I didn't actually SEE that much since I had my camera at my eye so much. Of course now I've gone too far in the other direction and frequently go on vacation and forget to take any pictures from it at all.

Fuck. My youtube account just got suspended. Not sure what triggered it, but Bob Dylan at ACL cost me 2 of 3 strikes a couple months ago. Gonna start over again, I was up to 1050+ videos right at 1.8 million views covering 3 years of shows.

On a sidenote all music performances uploaded could potentially be copyright violations. Some record companies are assholes about this.

I am not enthused right now, click my video above and see. I knew it could happen though.

That really sucks. You filmed the videos yourself, right? I hadn't gotten around to watching the above video yet :(

Usually the only videos that get deleted are BBC rips, a cause that they seem to abandon after a few months because there are so many old videos hanging around.

Years ago the Hotshot the Robot people were harassing me to delete a video.

Any music that bitchass record companies own the rights to could be found infringing, live or recorded. Bob Dylan and Prince are two artists that come to mind on this subject.

A friend of mine had his account suspended over something dumb a few years ago, and after that I set up a few other accounts. Anything a mite ropey gets shunted off into one of the others, just in case, since I use my youtube accounts primarily for message boards so I don't need them to be searchable. It's not foolproof, but at least I'm not putting all my eggs in one basket.

One thing I love about Crystal Castles is that they manage to piss people off and make people very measurably angry in ways that all those punk rock nimrods that still flog the overstale 1977 schtick wish they could/think they do.

I love the sound, I love the energy, I love Alice and her dead-eyed zombie waif thing. It feels (or rather felt) new even tho the parts arent really. It's all amphetamine and unframed anger and I loved it every time I saw it. Tho it never belonged in the Sahara.

In fact, I think the new album is kinda safe and boring.

rideincircles
07-16-2010, 11:50 AM
One of the people on the crystal castles board asked for my video Id and they would try and get the violation removed if I deleted the video. I think it's too late on my main account, I can't access it, never found out officially what killed it ( I think my doe deer video). I am hoping I at least get an official notice like the 2 I recieved for bob Dylan. Either way I'm not uploading any more labeled crystal castles footage on those accounts.

I probably should have just went to see Stevie. I found faithless boring though.

They're the mutant vehicles of the Mutoid Waste Company - the british arts collective who were running The Unfairground, and previously did Trash City.

They also do stuff at Fuji Rock and Burning Man.

They first appeared at the festival about 20 years ago, with their "Car Henge", as part of the fringe stuff put on by the travellers.

The main protagonist is sculptor Joe Rush. (His half brother Pip is cofounder of Arcadia).

To be fair, the random shit that was going on (as entertaining as it was) is not a big pull for me. I enjoyed my weekend, but don't really have any interest in going back unless the lineup is much more to my taste. To have around 50 stages and still struggle on occasion to find sonething I wanted to see is not good.

Seeing as you have to commit before having a clue who is playing, it's unlikely I'll take the plunge again.

chiapet
07-25-2010, 01:39 PM
I was feeling the same way as I left and even a couple of weeks later, when I'd gotten home, I was ... glad I'd tried it but felt pretty certain I'd never go again. I've had a couple weeks more to think about it, and my impressions are mellowing.

My problem with it came down to this: You buy tickets without having any idea who's playing. I'd made myself think this was because most people were so into live music... that was not so much the case, at least to the extent of other festivals I've loved. If it were in my backyard and only a matter of buying a festival ticket and a tank of gas, I'd probably try to go frequently too. But it's not -- it's an incredibly expensive trip to make for a festival. And in retrospect, it was a bad idea to combine this with another festival (at least back to back) since the whole time it was kind of on the back of my mind that I shouldn't overdo it because I had another week of festivals left.

So, where I'm at.... I'm going to register, but not buy tickets in the initial rush, wait for the sale of returned tickets to see if there are any can't-miss acts announced... but probably just watch it on BBC. And shoot myself if, say, Bowie plays and I don't go.

Your registration is good for 3 years, so you shouldn't have to register again.

Rain is not good - not even in small amounts when 200,000 people are walking around. Even if it doesn't rain next year, it'll probably be a lot cooler. It's very seldomly that hot here (although it's stayed nearly as hot in London every day since).

As so many of my friends go to Glasto, we are planning a Roskilde trip in 2012 (due to the Glasto gap).

if I went back I would not be bothered about the lineup, and plan to spend most of my time exploring the late night areas. those were some of the most interesting places for me, yet I spent so little time there.

however, doing that really depends on being able to sleep in the day. it's not having to take the plunge without knowing the lineup that bothers me, it's not knowing the damn weather.

Yeah, anyone can throw stages and bands together and call it a festival, but it's stuff like that you can't see anywhere else in the world. I did a pretty decent amount of exploring, I guess, just not what I hoped to do.

Exploring them more was one of my main motivations for coming back this year, and I didn't get to spend enough time there because I was so sick and was always stuck by myself anyway. The best time to go seems to be Sunday night. I ran to the Shangri-la right after Stevie Wonder and it was fairly empty, but a lot of things were closed. Disappointed, I chilled next to the Club Dada stage and listened to some pretty cool brass band (they covered Karma Police and Hey Ya and others I can't remember) and took a little nap before Birdy Nam Nam. While I needed the sleep, it was nice that people kept checking on me to make sure I was okay and not dead or in some junkie coma. After a little Birdy Nam Nam, I saw that everything was open again and there were more people around, so I spent the next couple hours rushing to see everything I could. Ended up doing just a 5 minute walkthrough at the Unfair Ground because I needed to get to Stone Circle for sunrise.

I am just tired of going to far away places and spending money I can't spare only to get sick, so as much as I want to go next year, it will have to depend on Pulp, Bowie, or Radiohead playing. I know I can see Radiohead here (tickets permitting), but after seeing Thom and Jonny....aaaah, I have to see the whole band doing a full headlining set at their spiritual home. Bowie, I don't think will happen. He did a greatest hits set in 2000 and if he played again, it'd be the same thing, and I can't picture him doing that. Pulp...damnit, this needs to happen already. I get the feeling that Jarvis has been considering it more seriously lately with all the interest generated by the rumors. He did get a teepee for the weekend and do a couple dj sets (apparently there was one on Friday somewhere, too), if that means anything.

Current plan is to try for a ticket when they go on sale, and then hang onto it for a while because if one of the acts named above plays, it will be known by then. We knew the headliners really early the last couple years. If not, can always cancel my ticket and save for another festival/country in 2012.

Disappointed, I chilled next to the Club Dada stage and listened to some pretty cool brass band (they covered Karma Police and Hey Ya and others I can't remember) .

Was it a brass band or a steel band? Steel Harmony were at the festival and quite often include those two in their set - and this.

U2 seems like a lock. and I am convinced that Kylie will headline a night... she never played after her cancellation a few years ago, and after her appearance this year I walked away with an impression that she'd be back.

if Pulp plays I will really be pissed, because I'm 99.9% sure I will not be travelling to the uk next year.

considering they barely bothered doing US dates when they were together, I'm skeptical. last they visited saw was barely a handful of east coast dates for this is harcore.

if they do come I will happily take it. but I have a feeling it may be like the manics' first US dates in 10 years, which consisted of half-filled fillmores and such. vs seeing them at glastonbury where 100,000 people know the words to all their songs.

we have been over this before somewhere. maybe we should revive a pulp thread.

I said the same thing about the blur so I'm not going to count on it. I think a few american shows are likely, though, just not guaranteed. It would have to be a generous festival check and a few shows (ny, sf, one more) centered around that show to make it worth their while. Even if they do play here, it won't be the same. Seeing them in a small venue with a few thousand people would be amazing but it won't be the same. Glasto and a couple finsbury park shows the following week would get me there in a heartbeat.

Two headliners booked for Glastonbury Festival 2011
Plus U2 asked to return next year

Farmer and Festival organiser Michael Eavis has confirmed that he has two of the headliners for next year's Glastonbury Festival booked already.

Before the dust had settled on this year's Festival, organiser Eavis told reporters that he had already got the three headline acts for next year in mind, saying the they were "three really good headliners".

Michael revealed in the Festival's souvenir review that, "The deals are done: two of the headliners will be returning and one is a woman who has been before but never headlined. I cant say any more because it gets me into trouble."

Eavis has now revealed that, as well as booking the two other headline acts (although he won't reveal who) for 2011, he has also asked U2, who were forced to pull out of headlining this year's festival after frontman Bono injured his back, to headline the festival on the Friday. He has also confirmed that he is yet to receive a response from the Irish band, however their announced rescheduled tour dates do include a gap for them to appear at the Somerset bash.

Eavis said after this year's appearance of the band's guitarist The Edge who made a guest appearance with headliners Muse that, "It was a great moment for us. He (The Edge) enjoyed a taster of playing - they're keen to do it. Whether it's next year ... or in three years' time."

eFestivals suspects that the two confirmed headlining acts might be Kylie, and Radiohead.

WTF is a yonk?

http://www.virtualfestivals.com/latest/features/8261/-/American-artist-to-headline-Glastonbury-2011


Are Glastonbury Festival-goers to be treated to an American headliner in 2011?

According to Heart West Country Radio producer Joe O’Brien on Twitter, Michael Eavis has said that he’s secured the services of someone he’s wanted for ‘years and yonks’.

He Tweeted:"Michael Eavis tells Heart West Country a "American artist" he's wanted for "years and yonks" is booked to headline Glastonbury 2011."

Early rumours suggest that Prince or Madonna could be in the frame for next June.

Eavis previously said that he’d already booked two headliners and approached U2 to play after they cancelled their show this year.

There's no money in playing glasto. She already got the publicity and cred from doing it last year. Would get a lot more playing elsewhere. Then again, she's the ultimate attention whore and the publicity for headlining would be insane. Who knows.

Maybe there are two American headliners. Gaga being the (alleged) female that played before and Prince being the American that Eavis sought for yonks.

shakermaker113

"next time" you will not have to deal with that brutal sun for 18 hours a day for five days str8.

makes for an entirely different experience, not that the one we had wasn't top notch imo. just a bit easier all around.

i really could go for one of those juice smoothie things from the green fields right now.

fck!!!!!!!! am i really going to go this again next year? it has a magnetic power that i cannot control. odds are that the lineup will dominate this past years, since we have confirmed with U2, radhead, coldplay, and now daft punk.

Honestly the heat was probably easier than days of rain would be. I wore my wellies around for just a little bit one night at Roskilde (it wasn't raining, I just felt since I'd brought them thousands of miles, they should be worn). I had blisters within minutes, even though they were fine in SF.

Guess I'd never tried wearing them over rough ground and gravel.

having experienced both, it isn't even close. unless you get the 100 year storm, glasto is very easy and comfortable to get around in when it rains a bit. also allows for sleeping in. its like crisp fall weekend of camping.

get thicker socks.

a little bit of rain > no rain > lots of rain

Also I'm betting that just normal military or hiking boots would be totally fine unless there was a ton of rain.

There are 2 dance tents that go through the day/early evening, in addition to all the late night stuff and smaller-out-of-the way tents/areas/etc.

The Glastonbury clash-finder should still be up if you want to get an idea of the selection.

You can also count on a big dance act or two playing the Other Stage.
Good god. Just sorting through the clashfinder is a daunting task. Thanks.


Yes, just for perspective, not counting random late night stuff and acts I wasn't familiar with, and not at all focusing on electronic music

I saw Faithless, Orbital, The Orb, Banco de Gaia, Riva Starr, and part of Sasha. I fucked up and forgot about 808 State, Aeroplane, & Rusko. There were scores of electronic acts I purposefully missed. You realize there are like 30 things going on at once, right?


I think, however, compared to Jeff's stories of pukelpop... I'm not sure glastonbury's dance area will compare. the dance offerings are great for people with a casual interest, but if that's your main drive I'm not sure... I think the late night areas would probably have more to offer than the dance village.

then again I didnt spend that much time in the dance village.

Not trying to compare. I just wanted to get a sense of how they did it. Late night action in the smaller "clubs" sounds cool other than the walking time/energy it might take to get from place to place.

That clashfinder is unreal... 30 stages doesn't sink in the same until you're looking at them. I can only imagine negotiating it all in person.

yeah going through those 1000 acts on the clashfinder was a bit of a nightmare.
