    This isn’t directly related to Niagara Falls, but if you are a technical person, you might be interested to know with what equipment the Nik Wallenda Niagara Falls walk was filmed.

    From ThomasNet News:

    Toshiba Imaging (www.toshibacameras.com), a leader in high definition (HD) color video imaging, provided the point-of-view (POV) camera for Nik Wallenda’s successful, record-breaking tightrope walk over Niagara Falls on June 15, 2012. The tiny IK-HR1S high-def imager captured the sensational footage from the balance bar of the internationally-acclaimed tightrope artist during the 1,850-foot trek. The one-piece HD camera was waterproofed and mounted on the balance pole by Aerial Video Systems (AVS-www.aerialvideo.com), the company contracted by ABC to provide all the audio and visual communications for the historic event.

    Niagara Falls in Summer 2009 (pictures and video)

    The weather on the 4th of July this year was awesome. The sky was blue and the temperature was in the mid 20°s C (around 70° F), so I went out and took some pictures and a video. The pictures were taken with my regular camera, but the video was taken with a new small HD camera that I “inherited” from one of my sisters. I’ve embedded the video below, but you may want to click through to YouTube and view the HD version.

    As always, you can view the thumbnails below, or view the full images in the Niagara Falls in Summer 2009 gallery.

    Here is the HD video from that day:
