    Night ride video of Marwi P7's

    I went out the other night to do some night riding/mountain bike filming with a buddy.

    I gave him a couple P7's for his bars and helmet to use and I had two Marwi P7's on the bars. I also had one of my early home brews P7's on my helmet.

    I killed my main camera trying to screw it into a new housing I made that mounts to the bike head tube right above the front wheel. Ran a screw right into the circuit board and cracked it. Had to dig through a drawer to find an old security camera as a last minute replacement. I have a new camera on the way, cause the camera I used to shoot this video sucks.

    It is a pretty cheap camera, not able to keep up with the low light levels around the edges very well. You will see that it looses the light around the edges and creates a tunnel effect sometimes. It also was not in focus so the picture is slightly blurry.

    Another problem is that the P7's are so damn bright that they create super hot spots that the camera can't handle. It's a good thing to have while you are riding, but not filming.

    Anywho, I will mount up the new camera and get some better footage next week.

    Or you can right click on them and download them.

    This was my first night ride this season and the Marwi P7's blew me away. This night ride season is gonna be fun.

    I filmed some more night ride footage on 10/22 with a new camera
    Problem is, the merchant sent a black and white camera.

    Anywho, the camera shoots 480 pixels wide and so I used it.
    I set up a web page with the night ride Video's as links here.
    These are all shot in Pisgah Forest, NC, USA where I live
