Grand Central - London To Sunderland Cab Ride
Shipping Destinations for this item
Sorry, this product is currently unavailable.
I have made some "cab view" videos, so I am aware of the difficulties. You need to choose the direction/time of day so that the sun is mostly behind one, to include natural sounds, and to rely on the camera's automatic exposure to get it about right - you might think you could improve on the equipment's choice of aperture, but in practice you will not. In addition you need to be lucky with the weather, and to invest in the best camera and tripod that money can buy.
This DVD gets pretty much all of the above exactly right, and the resolution and steadiness of the picture are hard to fault - there is minimal vibration, only on full throttle.
For me, the most interesting part of the trip was Northallerton to Sunderland, over little-known and hugely historic lines - actually passing through Stockton, where it all began. I acknowledge that this bit of the trip will be of lesser interest for "high speed" enthusiasts. Recommended without reservation.
