    And you need to aim it higher. Looking at your front wheel and the dirt 3' in front of it doesn't make for a good video, especially when we know there's all those riders in front of you, not to mention actual trail.

    And second the 360p. At that resolution, the video could be from virtually ANY camera.

    GoPro Black or Drift Ghost HD?

    Agree with you.
    The problem isn't in the camera, it's my lack of editing skills.
    I'll get better.
    The shooting was made in 960p, but when loading, Youtube said it was too heavy, maybe i'll find a way to go around this too.

    Are you rendering as a MP4 ? Whats size was your final file you were uploading ?

    Seriously i cant notice any difference in the quality when i go over 14mbps max bitrate.

    An approx 5 minute render from my GP3 black at 1080x30 (shot at 1080x60) with a max bitrate of around 14mbps ends up under a 300mb file and uploads to youtube/vimeo in around 25mins.

    keep at it... try using some diff software for editing .. (if on a PC, on mac just use Imovie ) there are a few free trials out for software so do a search , download a few and play.. have fun with it!!!

    Also try other spots for mounting, the helmet mount is actually about the worst, but is still good for mix ins. get a few diff mounts so you can easily just pop it from one location to the next without having to fiddle with the mount it's self.

    Not sure why Youtube is saying a 5 min vid is too heavy..? try editing it down and using some compression (thou as little as possible)

    Don't let it stress you, I stopped using mine for a time cause I just got too worried about it and it started loosing it's "fun" factor. Now I just kinda go with it and don't let it worry me.... editing I take my time and play. great to do on a rainy day where you can try a few diff options/edits.

    Good job!

    Thanks, yes i'm the big trouble.
    I load it as MP4, perhaps not the best option? How do you guys do?
    Haven't done any compression; must learn more about it.
    I use iMovie; and im not disappointed with the posts, im here to learn with you and my mistakes.
    Im not looking for the Oscar and as a Drift Ghost owner, i dont want to say this camera is better, it was an option. Besides, here in Portugal the new GoPro is a rarity to find.
    In the future (if prices go down), i may buy a GoPro and use both.

    Regards

    ya, I don't even bother recording at 1080 anymore... just sucks up battery and memory... thou I do use the 60 frames 720 now and then.

    Imovie is easy.. few quick tips..

    Make sure when you start a new "project" that it's set at WIDE SCREEN 720
    start with just playing with the preset "trailer" theme and just pull small clips from your live footage,.. just to get used to the program and selecting sections
    watch the little 2 min vids on Imovie at apple.. iLife - iMovie - Read about movie trailers and more new features. there are like a 1/2 dozen if you scroll down that page..
    search the web, there are TONS of tips and tricks sites for Imovie..

    have fun man!!!

    I purchased the GoPro Black a few months ago and enjoy the camera. Battery life isn't as long as the Hero 2 or Hero HD but not bad enough that the camera is unusable. Plus, you can get Wasabi external charger with 2 batteries for like $21 buck or so on Amazon.com.

    I purchased the external battery pack for it and it helps the camera last about as long as the Hero 2 and Hero HD. The only thing I don't like about it is that the battery pac doesn't have removable battery, it is one unit and the first one I got crapped out after a few uses and had to get exchanged. Haven't used the replacement one yet so I reserve judgment on how reliable the external battery pacs are.

    I liked the ones for the Hero 2 and Hero HD mainly because could charge the battery with a USB cable instead of having to use the camera for that purpose.
    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.
