    We Got a New Video Camera...

    We lost our last (new) camera on our latest Costa Rican trip. *grumble*

    So we decided to pick up a new POV.1 helmet cam to make up for it! Here is the test run.

    ArseCam! Gives new meaning to the phrase "artsy-fartsy!" Okay, I'm done.

    That actually takes some smooth video. Those kinds of cameras seem to always make jerky, stuttery video, though being attached to a FS bike may help matters.

    [edit: Oh, I just looked the thing up. It's not some cheapie helmet-mounted camera. ]

    I knew we'd get it for that. It was a really short ride, ok? Just across the street.

    Don't get the peanut gallery speculating on that one. This thread will go in the wrong direction with a quickness.

    Ah, no sound here at work. Wilco makes for good tooling around town music, I bet.

    Ought to try strapping it down to the Pista next, see how well it takes some more jarring bumps.

    It looks like it's about time to pull that bike off the wall anyway. Look at the weather out there. Where'd all that white stuff go?

    Hmmm, I was expecting a snowboarding-helmet-cam video...

    I liked this one though. The camera seems to take very good quality videos.

    As soon as Joe gets over his stupid cold we're hitting the snow. Or what's left of it anyway.

    Mountain biking in the snow is indeed a lot of fun, but so arrives the time of year where riding is fast and dry. Embrace it!

    Or something.

    That POV.1 looks like a really nice high-end system, I'm sure you're gonna have a lot of fun with it! I was also looking for an action camera, but that one was a little much for me. For cheapskates and poor people, I would recommend the GoPro Digital Hero camera. Check out the sample videos:

    http://www.goprocamera.com/

    It's a cheesy little camera with lots of limitations but also some nice features.

    Good Stuff:
    Camera is tiny.
    Fully automatic, only two buttons.
    Waterproof and shock resistant (good for diving).
    Many mounting options (but the bike mount is not available yet!).
    30 fps, 512x384 video.
    Supports up to 2 GB SD card, for 55 minutes of video.
    3 MP still camera.

    Special still modes:
    • Three shot mode (press shutter once, takes three shots).
    • Time-lapse mode (takes a shot every 5 seconds until card is full).

    Cheesiness:
    Camera feels cheap and fragile outside the waterproof case.
    Works best in bright daylight.
    Mic doesn't pick up much sound when it's in the case.
    No LCD to review your images/videos!
    Make sure your NiMH batteries are fully charged, to fill a 2 GB card.
    Still image quality is mediocre.

    Good company too; they actually contacted me to tell me that the mic on my camera was bad (too noisy) and told me to send it in for replacement.
