    Having a lot of trouble with this stupid Quicktime Pro, it'll only upload the first segment of my edits. This is far from all that I want to share with you guys, but it's the best that I can do for right now. I'll goof around with it some more today.

    Aahh, you're killing me with these perfect trails and perfect weather! It's not supposed to rain tomorrow around here, so I'll at least get to do one of my lame, boring, flat ground road rides. Still, it's better than nothing though.

    Quicktime Pro sucks for video editing. Even my 1.2 GHz dual-core netbook with Windows 7 will edit video, although render time is slower than it is on my quad-core desktop. It sounds like you might be better off going back to your previous video editing software.

    I did the QuicktimePro, against your recommendation I might add, because it seemed the cheapest alternative. The editing wasn't really all that bad, but it only seemed to work well on my computer, I couldn't get uploaded what I wanted. This morning I upgraded my Videopad software, second cheapest alternative, and I've got a nicer up the mountain video finalizing on both youtube and vimeo right this minute. I'll put the descent together this afternoon, I'm not doing much anyway besides nursing me knee. Work should be fun tomorrow, I walk about 11 miles a day in a 10 hour shift, maybe I'll skate out early, it would be the first time in over 2 years.

    youtube video is ready, use the large player in 720HD. It's still kind of grainy and I saved it in the same format as the original recording. My best results still have been going right from the camera to online, so QuicktimePro will work good for that when I just want to post from a single clip.

    That seemed to work pretty well

    Well, it quit raining and the sun's out, so maybe I can ride around the neighborhood. I won't go too far in case a shower hits.

    Sorry about the OTB crash Opti. Looks ugly on the outside and a bit concerned about the inside parts, too. Heal fast.

    Your climbing vid is awesome. That looks like something I'd like to ride. I especially like the Saguaros and Ocotillos that are reaching out to grab you as you pass by.

    Opti, I love your local terrain! I want to go riding with you.

    Oh, and I can relate to the OTB you posted, I seem to do one about every other ride or so.

    Thanks for the comments everybody. It is a lot of fun riding here, but I have a habit of riding the trails that are at the edge of my abilities. I tend to get a bit banged up about once a year.

    I'm going to do a 3 part down the mountain post. I shot it in 3 sections, my uploads look better if I do no editing. In this first one I take a few shots at a pretty scary switchback, especially since I had already jacked up me knee, and I was in no hurry to fall on it again.

    You should always wear safety goggles and a hard hat when operating a chainsaw, therefor it must be a hardhat.

    Hmm, the hard hat I have for that, is made of plastic and is orange, and so are the ones I have seen so far.

    I tried to make another video today. Crap, crap and more crap. What I've learned is the way I'm mounting the flip video cause pressure on the zoom button (which is on the back). I think I'm going to have to wish for santa to bring me a camera this year.

    Lots of new models coming out, you may be able to snag a deal on "last years" model. I always just Google search for what I want, click the shopping button, and look for the lowest price from a reputable dealer.

    I rode up there a year and a half ago or so on my Firebird, coming across that escarpment at the top I clipped my left pedal on the rock, tipped to the right, and all but shyt myself. If you noticed, I stayed a bit away from the edge where I could, but I was definitely aware than danger was near.

    I've got a new mount, and decided to try Hawg's handlebar mount method. What do you guys think? I think it has too much 'blair-witch' effect going on.

    Hawg, are your normal trails, like, sidewalk smooth? Your handlebar mount videos are really smooth and easy to watch. Even our "smooth" parts have little stutter rocks everywhere, so it's never really sidewalk smooth. (Except for about 10 miles worth on the top of the mountain)

    As it seems to be in this thread, the most people post good videos lately, could you do me a favor, and also post with the vid where the camera was mounted, and which camera you used?

    Just for the next couple of vids, so I get a feel for what gives what.

    I'm trying to make an informed purchase of a cam in the nearest future....

    Yeah, the hardpack here is as smooth as a concrete sidewalk. I kinda like the blair witch effect, though. The jumping scenes give the viewer a "feel" for the terrain.

    Is your camera set up at 720P?

    I'm using a Drift Innovation HD170 Stealth. It'll record at 1080p, but only at 30 fps. I'm having better results recording at 720p and 60 fps. My biggest problem is that I'm too cheap to buy good editing software, and I'm not software savvy enough and generally don't have the available time to make the open source stuff work.

    It records very well.

    IMO, we aren't trying to win any academy awards here. I'd always rather post a vid w/o editing and converse about you all instead of having all the questions answered on the video itself (where, when, how, what...).

    That's exactly it. Best case for me is straight from camera to the net, that's the least time involved. I don't feel that music is necessary, I'm not advertising for a product, I just want to get my video out to share with those not familiar with this area. I also have trouble deciding what to cut out, but my camera has a wrist strap remote so it's convenient to take more but shorter videos, which also facilitates straight to the net.

    Thanks Sti, but I wasn't good enough yesterday. I worked my vids around most of my fails, I was riding like crap, my crash had me operating far from my best, and even then that is questionable.

    Oh, it is, no doubt. I day dream about making a killer vid with my new bike, some pov footage, some stationary, sort of like the real grainy one I did a while back coming down a chunky hill. Whenever I look at my footage though, it doesn't have that !!POW!! like the pros have. I've got other hobbies and my job takes a lot of my time, so I'm content just riding, and throwing my minimalist videos out there.

    i think the jello-screen effect you are getting there can supposedly be fixed by using a higher frame rate.

    the problem with handlebar mount is the rapid swinging side to side giving viewers motion sickness, and i didnt notice that on your vid. it's less of a problem on higher speed stuff where you have fewer steering movements (like your clip), and more of a problem on techy stuff.

    I assume a DRIFT INNOVATION DRIFT HD 1080P is close to what you got?

    I can have that one, or a GOPRO HD HERO2 MOTORSPORTS for approx the same price.

    Which one would you pick?

    Holly Cow! You guys were climbing up what most everyone else would only consider going down?! Cool!!!

    Is your camera set at 720, 960, or 1080?

    And BTW, you usually use the term "gag" whenever you mention climbing???

    vid #3, when I look behind at the very beginning, that kind of mildewy greenish horizontal line is just below where I came across in the first down vid.

    ^ Please say "hello" for me to any Gila Monsters and Rattlesnakes you may encounter on your rides.

    Nicole, yes, our 'terrains' are very similar.

    Hawg, it only has 2 settings, HD and SD. I think it was SD today, not even sure, and don't know which resolutions they are, either. I think the HD is 30 frames @ 720 and SD is 60 frames @ 480. Not sure, though.

    I can have that one, or a GOPRO HD HERO2 MOTORSPORTS for approx the same price.

    Which one would you pick?

    You won't find as many after market mounts for the Drift as you will the GoPro. The Drift is a sleaker package. Drift has a rotatable lense. GoPro is easier to use as a regular camera. Drift has a built in LCD screen for set-up and playback. When I was originally shopping, almost 2 years ago, my choices came down to the Contour or Drift, I had eliminated the GoPro because of it's "clunkiness". If I remember correctly, the Drift is more useable right out of the box than the Contour or GoPro, but don't hold me to that. I really like the wrist strap remote control of the Drift. I bought a 16mb memory card which will hold over 3 hours, and the oem battery will record about 3 hours. I use mine with the helmet mount, which I like, it came with a bar mount which I haven't tried yet. When I bought mine, it was substantially cheaper than the competition. I would not hesitate to buy another Drift.

    No, no, not gag. Climbing is where it's at!! Anybody can ride down hill, it takes strength, stamina, and technique to go up.

    Frame rate is not your primary problem IMHO. Narrow field of view is. You need a wider lens, 30FPS is perfectly OK.
