I was minding my own business right before dinnertime, when I suddenly found myself in the turret, being offered a turkey tendon.
It was all because of a discovery my human made. One that proves she is not quite as tech savvy as she likes to think she is.
She has been wondering why she can’t upload video from her regular camera to her MacBook. For years. So we’ve been having to shoot videos with the iPhone. Which is usually okay, but sometimes it creates some really awful color correction problems. (That’s why yesterday’s video looked a little funky.)
Well, she finally figured out the problem, with the help of Google. All she needed to do was switch the video format in the camera’s menu to MP4. That was it! All these years of dealing with the iPhone were totally unnecessary.
So basically, she tempted me over to the turret with the turkey tendon because of the lighting. It’s really nice at a certain time in the late afternoon, and she wanted to practice using the camera for video. She also discovered she could also take still images while she was filming (duh, you can do that with the iPhone too). Although most of the photos turned out a little blurry because I moved around so much. In fact, much of the video was a bit out of focus too because she’s still figuring out the movie function in the camera.
With any luck, and some practice, we should be able to make better videos soon!

That’s great that your mom was able to solve this problem. Our mom dislikes spending over 30 minutes to figure something out on her phone. It drives her crazy! Plus Olivia is always in motion and won’t sit still when the ole cell phone pops up to capture her mischief…oops, meant beauty, MOL. Purrs in motion…
Coco & The LunaTicks says
Hm. Turkey tendons. I wonder if we have those here?
Gosh I don’t know about these turkey tendon things but it looks intriguing! I’ll add that to Mom’s grocery list!
Timmy Tomcat says
Yeah, our Dad does things like that too. After a long time of trying it is “oh, that was easy.” Glad to know he is not silly all by himself. Those are some really nice photos in the turret and do you have extra turkey tendons please?
Katie Isabella says
Summer whatever you show us I will like.

Tell your human not to feel bad – these things happen to everyone. Glad she found a solution.

As long as you get turkey tendons, the turret is as good a location as any.
Ellen Pilch says
Sounds like you both had a good day- she figured out a technical problem and you scored a tendon 🙂

I am glad your human figured it out with a little help from Mr.Google.
You are so turkey treat cute sweet Summer!
You are a wonderful help! And cute!
Andrea and the Celestial Kitties says
I hope your human keeps figuring new things out so you keep getting good treats!!

Having a perfect, photogenic kitty must help a lot with
the videos and stills. All of these pictures certainly
look good – I know the subject was videos though.
More turkey tendons for the kitty!
Lola The Rescued Cat says
Yay for your human! Our mom needs a new camera so badly! Paws crossed she gets one soon.
You should only be photographed in natural light – Look at those eyes!
Catscue Catmom says
I love that you have a turret and you get your favorite treats in it.
Eastside Cats says
Summer, humans don’t know everything like you cats do…but you don’t tell us anything!
