Here's my video blog coverage of the 10th Bangkathon 2013 that was held in the oceans of Calatagan, Batangas. Its my first time to do a video coverage of a paddled boat race and riding a small boat in the sea. I used my Olympus E-PL 1 in video recording the whole event, I also used my iPhone4s with a water proof casing in shooting 2 footages. I'm glad that the turn out is great and everyone are safe during the race. I heard that there's one boat got wiped out by big waves, but still the boatman is okay and his boat didn't suffered any damages. The experience is great for me... I haven't witnessed this kind of festival before in my life, and its nice to know you Calatagan, Batangas in a different perspective.
