Electronic Images of Daylilies

The following images of early-blooming daylilies have been contributed by members of the Daylily E-Mail Robin for your enjoyment.
You can capture images from video tapes. The hardware and software are varied, and improving (or at least becoming less expensive) all the time. Here are some examples, showing the effect of image size on apparent image quality.

The following image is made from an 8-mm Sony camcorder using a video capture card. Compression is via WinVisionPro that came with the card. The image is not as crisp as that scanned from a photo. The real advantage is short turn around time and low cost as far as getting a picture "on the air". The cultivar pictured, MAKING DOUBLE TIME, is going to be a 1996 introduction from John Kinnebrew Jr. of the Kinnebrews of MIDNIGHT MAGIC fame. It's a diploid. One of the parents was one of Liz Salter's eyed cultivars. The video was made at the Lake City, FL show last May where MAKING DOUBLE TIME won Best Seedling.
