    Whoops Trail helmet cam test

    The viewpoint is aimed a little low....mostly because the camera wearer tends to look downward to see where he is going. I'll have a wide-angle lens soon which should take care of some of the jitters and viewpoint issues.

    I thought I'd post this one for now for those that have not had the chance to ride whoops yet....

    Nice!

    You are both going bigger than I ever will on those jumps. Nice work, can't wait to see the wide angle.

    It is interesting how the trail looks so much different from a camera. I'm not sure why, but I recognize sections, but I'm not seeing the whole trail like I do when I ride it. Thanks for the post. That makes me want to get a helmet cam.

    The goalpost double, now commonly referred to as "Nat's Jump", is at the 1:30 mark....

    You mean all you have to do is eat poop and you get something named after you? WTF. Hehe..... Joking, I think of Nat every time I "roll" over those doubles.

    NICE JOB! Really cool to see the trail from your vantage point. I am still learning how to handle the table jumps. Thanks for sharing!

    Too funny, as I watch the video I keep catching myself trying to peer up beyond the top border of the frame! I'm not too bright.

    Yep, that's the one. You know, when you came across the finish line doing "the Kokopelli."

    You should have seen me this year. I placed closer to the top, but I paid for it at the finish line. No wheelies this year, but another racer tried to pass me and the finish and I wasn't having it.......crossed the line and assumed the position. Man that hurt!

    "Assumed the position." That's funny!

    Good stuff! Amazing how much a regular lens on a helmet cam "slows" things down and flattens out the trail/features. At 6 minutes top to bottom, you were surely going a lot faster than the footage makes it appear. A wide angle lens really helps to give a more true sense of speed. Post up the video when you get the wide angle... it'll be cool to see the 2 side by side.

    That video totally motivates me to clear Nat's doubles and the ones across the road. You guys made it look easy, nice job. I'm going to do it this weekend.
