hanneke did real well riding her regular mtb on the sand..tommy had the big pug grin
mangoman if your looking at an HD camera then maybe the go pro hero?,lots of info on them over on the films thread and videos to look at ,the tachyon i use isnt HD,but will take up to a 32G card(8 hours filming).4G on the go pro (2 hours filming ) unfortuantly either dont film at night well even behing HID lights,ok under city streetlights,
i think it would be more benefical to find and up load image stabliser software like what comes standard with mac imovies, i believe it is available for windows vista...
I shot that in the standard 4:3 frame, it does switch down to a 127 degree higher HD resolution. I'll try that out this weekend. Sometimes the "fisheye" is cool, other times it warps things a bit too much.
I asked him to show me the unit, it's pretty slick. Check out the website called gpscity and take a look at the different Ram Mounts. I'm gettin' one! Super versatile for clamping onto a stay or fork leg for a perspective other than helmet mount. If you're considering it go for the one with the marine grade aluminum clamp vs the plastic. Stout.
@EndoRando: nice filming, although I got the impression that I was watching a videogame! The funky music, the almost impossible curves of the snow and twists of the trail, the "image" of the mountains in the background at some point... Odd. Really, really nice, but odd.
I used to ride into town , which was a 20Km ride, quite often. One night after a big storm, there was a puddle on the track, I thought nothing of it and rode straight in.... I had a brand new MP3 player in the handlebar bag, it would be an understatement to say I was thinking 'Holy S&%t, here we go' I got through, rode to town and back then took my mate down to film said "puddle" What a hoot........ Luckily I have a fully sealed BB and Rohloff hub.....
Went to a bikeshop and found a lot of neat things for mounting my GoPro HD in the shop's reflector bin - most notably two thumbscrews almost identical to the stock GoPro's, but with a slightly longer length. That and an old tailight mount I made up a new handlebar mount, and also mounted the camera to the lower front fork via the panier mount. The thumbscrews used by GoPro are the same threads:
