    Hi Folks:

    I put together some new videos featuring some of my Las Vegas slot machine play -- and some highlights of visits in and around Las Vegas. You may get some good Day Trip ideas here.

    Valley of Fire State Park ...

    The beautiful VALLEY OF FIRE STATE PARK may look similar to Red Rock (which is also a great drive). This is about a 50 mile drive -- but well worth the day trip ... and not far from Mesquite (in case you want to visit).

    My next video is form the SLS on the Las Vegas strip. It was previously the Sahara. If you like modern architecture, you should enjoy the updates here.

    Death Valley - Scotty's Castle

    Finally ... here is Scotty's Castle ... an amazing place to visit in the middle of Death Valley. It is several hours from Las Vegas, but well within a day trip! Really enjoyed this tour, and also enjoyed putting this one together. A nice slot hit at the end of this one as well!

    Nice work, Shamus.

    What did you shoot with?

    Hi Bill::

    Yeah ... although I always shoot my videos in 1080p ... it is just on a regular CANON photo camera ... and that leads to stability issues along with lighting issues. It does well for slot videos -- but is definitely not optimal for regular video.

    These little cameras has worked out well for me because I can carry several in my pocket. They are quick to whip out and shoot in the casino. I've broken a fair number of them -- and the spare batteries are quite pricy ($40 to $50). The microphone holes are in odd spots -- so you can sometimes hear the left or right audio get muffled. The focus can also be frustrating ... when autofocus kicks in.

    As a side note, on a one week trip to LAS VEGAS, I will shoot 50 GIG of video and photos -- so, I will put hours of use on each camera. In one of the videos, you can see I stick the camera out the window into 60 MPH winds (looks like I am crashing -- but that is the passenger doing the filming).

    To be honest ... I really want to improve these videos in the future ... but I'm just glad my viewers seem to enjoy them ... warts and all! :)

    Thanks.

    My very latest video ... running over 10 minutes ... points of interest from around Las Vegas ... mixed with plenty of recent slot play.

    How many of these places have you visited ...?
