    I love your video! Which edit software you use?

    Thanks GR,

    I'm using Sony Vegas for the editing... I find it very easy to use and much more user friendly than Premiere CS4. Plus it reads the GoPro HD format well!

    cheers :thumbsup:

    Hey Phil, not bad!

    Must've taken a while to set it up for each specific spot like that. Do you ever mount it to your helmet at all, or use it mainly stationary?

    yes, it did take a while to set up each shot; I'm lucky that my peers were patient! :D

    I did shoot some POV footage but the 16:9 aspect on the Gopro (r5 resolution) wasn't conducive to that. So I decided to make this video all non-POV.

    I did some footage a few weeks ago in 4:3 mode, POV:

    Nice footage! Yeah, I've been researching helmet cams a bit lately and keep finding that the gopro's footage tends to warp near the edges and I don't like it that much. The clarity is pretty damn nice though, at least while it's not full-screened. How much researching did you do before you landed on this?

    Sorry, was meant to reply to your latest post, not the original.

    I think for the price this camera is fantastic. I don't really notice the edges, and the HD resolution is amazing! I did most of my research here on the forum and by looking at LeeL's review of it. I also had the previous version, the GoPro Wide and it was very good as well. you can check out my other videos I made with it if you hit my vimeo page

    I think the most genius thing about the gopro hd is its simplicity.

    Nice footage, wish we had so little snow so I can try it out in the woods.

    I tried vegas as a free trial download but it didn`t recognise the format, so that went off the list.... looks like I have to reconsider it again now.

    Very nice video. Great choice of angles, it really keeps the viewer entertained. What song is that btw?
  • 01-28-2010

    Thanks, I plan to get some more footage this weekend...

    The song is Get Off by the Dandy Warhols.... recommended by a friend and it couldn't have fit better :thumbsup:

    cheers
