    First video

    okay guys, helmet camera came in friday and this
    is my first shot @ an MTB video. i was dead tired,
    but went out anyway, so im pretty slow. hope to
    get better footage tomorrow, but let me know what
    you think (and take a peek @ the burn out contest
    too)....

    Well shot but a boring ride. Speed is all that will save that trail from being anything more than a trail to a better trail. Show us some downhill or some air at least.
    It is still better than any video I have shot though. none.
    I used to feel bad I had no brakes untill I passed a man with no seat

    Pretty nice. I have some video footage from my camera when it was around my neck, I'll sort through and see if any of it is decent.

    I was kinda worried during parts of that, those trees looked pretty solid and painful, and looked pretty close to the camera.

    Plus 50 points for badass music. Corrosion of Conformity is the stuff, and they just came out with a new album "In the Arms of God."

    The trails look nice, but nothing crazy. Build some stuff, and take some new vids (with similarly kickass music!)

    Sweet! Looks kinda like the trail I hit on Friday--little more open, tho. Ours was more shade than sun.

    Bar ends and trees don't like each other. Nice footage, especially for the maiden shoot.... You'll only get better with time and more $$$ of course. A higher resolution cam will do wonders, but they're high dollar. I'd rather spend the bucks on my bike's...
    I'd love to show the world some of the places I ride, but in reality most people have either "been there, done that", or simply could care less. Right Bender?

    Good- music, nice trail good camera placement.
    Bad-Ride was to slow for the music and no jumps or drops or big crashes to go along with the music.
    Barends on thight st.

    Next time have some one ride in front of you and go a bit faster (a lot faster if you can) and try and make that right turn over the hump into a hip jump

    One thing you may want to get if you have not already is one of these CamEyeSport remote. It will save you from burning unnecessary fotage.

    I couldnt make it past 30 seconds sorry. It was boring. I just saw trees and a blurry pink thing that was probably the trail lol.

    thanks for the comments guys...i know the trail isnt great, esp coming to indiana
    from colorado by way of arizona...but the trail is ~15 mins from my haus and i
    can ride there every day, plus im happie just having a place to ride out here in
    the sticks...it would be nice to have downhills/jumps and whatnot, but its pretty
    flat around here, so that stinks.
    im going out this afternoon to do a whole lap, which does have a few small
    jumps (only a foot or two) and trying to get some friends to go along...so,
    hopefully i can spice it up a bit more (:
    as for trail length, a full lap is just over 7 miles, which usually takes about 40
    minutes and has a combination of everything out here (small jumps, small flats,
    small downhills, etc)....but again, its the only thing nearby...
    the burnout was pretty fun, we arranged that after the last race one season.
    i have found alot of on bike footage from that year that im going to put up as
    soon as i get time (maybe tonite(: ). sorry no horrific crashes though...every
    time i fell down i didnt have the camera mounted.

    That looks like a lot of fun to me...

    Is the trail as thin as it looks? It looks like 9" thick in your footage.

    Looks like an ok trail to me, but that's because I like DH tracks.

    yeah swiffer, most of the trails are pretty narrow, running along ridges
    between creekbeds. i want to cut more trails, but i barely squeeze in
    riding and the gym w/everything else these days (getting married in
    september). i have taken GPS tracks of current trails, so
    the space for additional routes is there, just a matter of getting it
    cleared.

    If you don't mind, how much did that cam cost?
    And what is the line resolution? 380 lines or what?

    the camera total w/shipping was $209 USD (2nd day air=$25). got it from helmetcamera.com. included the camera and a burly machined aluminum
    housing, mic, battery pack and all the cables. only thing i may need to
    get is a Y connector to split the audio (single RCA audio input)...but since
    ill be adding music to most of the video, its not that important.

    EDIT-its the 380 version...480 is another $100
