Filming with CNN in Deira

I recently finished filming with CNN in and around Deira for some short films about the area. These will be broadcast on CNN internationally.

Filming in the Spice and Gold souq's while its over 40°C is not comfortable, and the fish market at 5am was a challenge on the senses.

I've mainly been recording ambience for the films, and decided to use my new recorder. I just got the Sony PCM-D100 and its excellent. The sound and the stero image it produces is fantastic. It's also much less intrusive when walking around the narrow alleys of the souq's. People pay a little less attention to the small recorder.
