Guess I should have added a disclaimer. Really just experimenting with my digital camera's video and ability to post. Either that or get Lady Gaga to ride ahead of me in what she would consider a suitable cycling outfit.

Straight road- Smooth Asphalt-Foggy- Boring isn't it.

Glad you qualified it by saying it was a test. Not certain if it is bar or helmet mounted cam but I have to mount my camera on the bars. Road Rattle does make for a very shaky viewing but this is just the Video feature of the Camera (Not Video Camera). I like to post Vids of the more interesting rides and sections of it and I have put out "Hints" that I want to get a helmet mounted cam.

Only thing is- Get a large hard disc on the computer. Once you get into Editing the vids-You will need that space----And time to do it.

Looks like a helmet-cam. Nothing wrong with raw video. It can be at least as interesting if not more so than the typical music videos most people post. At least your video doesn't suffer from the rattling noise my first few videos had when I used a regular digital camera mounted on the handlebars. Now I use a Kodak Playsport mounted on the bars and there is almost no noise from bumpy roads. The picture quality is better too.

Actually, I was just holding the camera with my right hand just above the bar clearing the cables. When I uploaded it to Photobucket I realized I should have taken the video using the VGA setting which would have uploaded faster and taken less memory. A helmet cam would be nice sometime but for now I am just having fun with this little kodak my daughter bought for me.

You ride awfully far toward the middle of the lane. I know you had a video going and there was probably no traffic and.....this point is probably moot.

Normally I ride as far as practical to the right. At this time of day during the week and before the full season of tourists there is little traffic on this particular road which ends at the ocean. I am always listening for vehicles. Don't understand how people can ride (or run for that matter) with their ears plugged into ipods. The only other exception is when I am making a left turn and then, after checking behind me, always get right out and over to the left. In a case where the road forks to the left I stay right but signal that I am going to the left. At least then if someone cuts me off to make a right I will have the satisfaction of knowing (provided I am still conscious) that I did signal.
