    Some Palmer & Ute Ride Stoke...

    Sitting in the office watching the snow coming down motivated me to go through some of my GoPro footage from the last couple months of riding. My first attempt at a riding vid. Hope ya enjoy...

    Definitely dug the riding.

    Can't decide on the downward camera angle.. does a good job of showing the terrain, but a little hard to watch.

    Yeah I'm becoming more of a fan of the chest mount and not the helmet mount...

    Seems like if you could just angle the chest cam up a bit you'd get the best of both without looking like we're getting smacked in the face by your knees.

    Btw - some nice drops in there.

    Good looking videos. The ute angle could be tweeked up just a fuzz but I would say the palmer head cam is pointed way to far down, I was getting dizzy just watching it and had to take a break. Nice choice in songs.

    Yep, add me to the crowd saying point the camera up so we can see where you're going, not where you are! Both for the helmet and the chesty. And I'm not sure how, but in some of the Ute chesty footage, it looks like you're leaning back... so much so that you could almost be on a 'bent!!

    The off bike footage is very nice, though!

    Got to get myself to Palmer Park this summer!

    It's nice to see the different POVs in the edit but I agree with everyone else that the camera needs to point up more (I'm learning that with my own Chesty footage). But damn, that second vid cost me money. I like the music and now I ended up buying a few Amberlin tracks off iTunes....
