    1. This is the kind of ride I want to do. No brutal uphill and no white knuckle downhill. (I saw pretty constant peddling.)

    2. Nicely filmed and framed. It is clear that it is done on a bike with a good view of the trail ahead.

    3. It is a bit too long.

    That is the flattest and straightest trail I have ever seen.

    I live in the PNW and that's what I thought too. We have some trails like that to take us to the trails....
    Nicely shot though and I like the chest mount camera angle.

    I have a chest mount, and I think that's by far he best POV angle. Best perspective, and it's even better if you turn the GoPro upside down. Unfortunately, that exacerbates the shaking (which was noticeable before) to the point that it's almost unusable for video. I deleted a Burro Pass run from last fall because it was near unwatchable.

    Still works well for sequential stills, though.

    I Purposly used the flattest section of the tracks footage because on the rest of the track where its more technical the video is just a blur from the bumbing about of the camera.

    Yeah you can still use MM to do the storyboarding and put together the finished product (Cineform can't do this stuff), but definitely give it a go using Cineform to pre-process the MPGs, split them in to convenient clips, etc. I was surprised at how much of a difference it made.
