Got a new GoPro 2. This is Trail A-1 at Swatara state park, my favorite trail there. My other vids seem to have a very washed out color so I took the little bubble cap off the housing and taped my camcorder's polorizing filter over the opening. It works!
I'm obsessed with good sound too, (Do NOT like music on my vids), and the GoPro fails hard there with low quality sound that feels like you're inside the housing. I bought an Audio Technica Pro24-CM microphone and drilled out a hole in the housing so I could plug it into the GoPro, but the microphone apparently has the wrong bias and all I get are squeaky sounds. Grrr. I emailed GoPro, they said tough luck and reccomended some mono mikes that I don't want. So now I put my Sony camcorder in my backpack and have the microphone taped to the shoulder harness. Bit of a pain, but the sound is great and I just combine the video and sound in Sony Vegas.
As far as the shaky-ness, this is as good as I can get it until I invent a gyroscopic chest harness mount. :P You kinda get used to it I think.
