    Night time biking video test.

    It was a brilliant full moon to I went for a night time ride. Unfortunately I lacked energy so it felt like I was riding with my brakes on! Oh well..

    I decided to test my GoPro for night biking and below is the result. I got descents of Doudy Draw, Springbrook loop, Flatirons North and some others.

    One interesting observation is that during the day the GoPro video seems faster than the eyes perceive. At night though, the video seems slower than the eyes perceive. 25mph didn't seem that quick on the video but certainly felt it at the time

    I love how night rides make you seem like you are going so much faster!! That was a pretty cool vid.

    It's the new Hero 3 Silver edition. The Black supposedly has better low light again but it's a $100 more and was in short supply before Christmas so I got the Silver.

    For what I normally need the Silver is excellent.
