Starring Sammy, the Dog

Meet Sammy. The always hungry, always cute Labrador-German Shepard mix whose love I bought 6 years ago with a piece of doggie chocolate. It was well worth it, it came attached with a boyfriend 🙂

A few weeks ago I bought my first video camera, a small, handy and very cool Sony action cam. What did I attached it to first? Guess!

 

Behind The Scenes

You’ve probably heard about GoPro. A small smart camera for sport maniacs. Sony has something similar. It’s catchy name is Sony HDR-AS100V. It’s a little camcorder that can record HD videos, time-lapse, underwater videos, etc… you name it.  So when I ordered mine I got it with a few fun accessories. Yes, one of those was a dog harness.

Mounting the harness was a cake. Keeping the camera in upright position was a different story. Sony action cam prides itself with a superb image stabilisator but a dog is a dog. A dog moves and, surprisingly, to the question “Le’ts put a weird machine on your back” most of the time replies – “F*ck no!” But after many many tries, I found a way how to fit it so it wouldn’t bug him so much… or Sammy resigned, I don’t know 🙂 Here’s both of them – the machine and the dog:

As you can imagine some shots were easier to get than others. As a rule of thumb – whenever food is involved, the for legged stars perform the best.

Look at world from a dog’s point of view – in this case 50cm/20″ above the ground.
