On The Streets Of Cuenca

I take my HD Camcorder on the streets of Cuenca and shoot some video for 30 minutes near Parque Calderon. I try to capture a combination of tourist and Cuencanos.  The biggest problem was dodging the people and taxis.

Please answer the poll question at the bottom of the post.


Saturday Walk – From El Centro To Coopera

I love using my camcorder on my walks. It’s fits in the palm of my hand and the HD video writes to the SD card making it very portable and very inexpensive to record video.

I’m using screenflow for all my video edting. It’s much easier to add music, titles and manipulate the different audio levels in the movies. .

El Centro Video

I was walking,  shopping and shooting some video in El Centro  when a stranger (American) stopped me and asked me what Camcorder I was using. I highly recommend the Canon HF R20.  It’s HD, it fits in the palm of your and so you can carry it in a purse or a murse(man’s purse). It has a great 28X optical zoom and the street price in the U.S. is $280. He asked me about courses in Cuenca and so here is your shameless self promotion pitch.  I’m offering two courses coming up in the next month.

  • How To Create A Blog That People Will Read
  • What Do You Do After You Take Your Digital Photo

Details can be found on the Computer Courses Page.

I thought the  Youtube video below would be of special interest to those people who are planning to travel to Cuenca.  My journey took me to a video store where I purchased 3 Blu-Ray Videos for $10.  My second stop was at Cafe Loja where I purchased a pound of freshly roasted coffee for $3. My last stop was at Mercado Diez de Agosto where I bought 3 papayas, 3 avocadoes, 5 peaches and a pound of strawberries for $4.50.

Enjoy the sights and sounds of Cuenca.
