Hey Ben they're nice casual videos. I reckon landscape will give a better experience for the viewer so give that a go to compare, keep it up mate.

Good on ya Ben, been enjoying the vids. can u show us you digging out the crevices or hole, and the sort of ground your digging whether it's hard pack or old river wash that would be good.

Cheers

Len

Your going good Ben. Best way to start out I reckon is panning in a creek. Before you know it you'll be getting a nice collection of gold together.


Everything we use comes from mining or farming.

as soon as I can afford a decent camera my vids will be better quality. and I will use a tripod so I can focus on digging and panning rather then holding the camera

I definetly have the gold fever. im recovering from a broken leg, but that's still not stopping me

Great videos Ben. Make sure you get to the bottom of those crevices, and if the material down there is hard packed and clayey with pebbles and wash in it, so much the better.

You should be able to set your phone to auto rotate so when you turn your phone to the landscape orientation it will take pics & video that way, then you can just hold phone sideways & the pic/video will be much bigger. Its all in the setting or maybe the camera settings.
Good video's so far too.


Still lots to learn. I enjoy panning/sluicing/highbanking & use Garrett Super Sluice pans, a Sluicy GS10 highbanker & a Gold Rat river sluice with Dream mat.
