    Spring Equinox, Mojo HD, MTB Australia [video]

    I posted this in the Passion forum but thought I should post it here too,

    Hereís a little video Iíve made ó itís been a wee labor of love the last month or so. It's my first video with a 'proper' camera, lots of learning, lot of fun too. I guess itís about the Spring wildflowers, magpies and mountain biking in AustraliaÖ or it could be about a mid 40′s guy having yet another immensely enjoyable mid life crisis

    Many thanks to Ibis for the Mojo HD. Almost a year on now, and I still feel like a kid on Christmas morning every time I wheel it out for a ride. LOVE it!

    Hope you guys enjoy it.

    Beautiful! And beautifully shot. Nice work with the camera, it clearly took a lot of work to get all those shots but it was worth the work. Wish I could be riding today instead of working!!

    Great video, I especially liked the wide shot of you blazing across the field right to left.

    Loved it! Beautiful scenery with some great shot angles and nice riding. I like the way the video picks up speed along with the music. What did you shoot this with?

    a Lumix GH2, with the 14-140. Thought there'd be more of a quality hit with the zoom but really wanted a simple, convenient and compact kit overall. Pretty happy with the lens, camera is great for video.

    To be able to shoot video with one small gadget that fits into a camelbak kinda pack no worries... sometimes technology is sweet!

    arghhh, I know... sorry about that, dang the S socks stand out. The LBS gave me a pair as the ones I had were falling apart. My wife's name starts with S - she thinks anything like that is pretty cool, so it's not a total loss

    Wish Ibis had more choices of socks, colors at least, and some AM styled kinda riding shirts too

    I always appreciate it when a rider creates a video without using helmet mount shots. I'm sure it takes a lot more work and planning. This is a great video which illustrates a superb video doesn't have to be all about hucking.

    Thanks again guys, it means a bunch to me that other riders enjoy the video for what it is.

    One of the things that really motivated me to make the video was not only that the bush had come alive this Spring for the first time in years (thanks to drought breaking rain earlier in the year) but ironically that meant it had now been scheduled to be burned as part of a fuel reduction program (which I think is complete and utter BS...)

    Anyways as a footnote to the video the burning started this weekend just gone. In theory these are meant to be cool burns, where only the floor of the forest is burnt.... but pretty much everything got torched

    Holy crap. They torched that place. The controlled burns I've seen in my area only affected the under growth.
