Cool, vids you post a lot of neat videos of XC riding.
A poor quality lipstick cam, herky-jerky footage, SLOOOOOW riding coupled with sped-up footage that accentuated the already bouncy footage and uninspiring editing made the Gooseberry video hard to finish.
Recognizing every bit of the trail did bring back some good memories though.
The low angle light had lots of potential for some dramatic footage.
I'd have to agree.Originally Posted by Hank Rearden
wtf who cares they are non the less fun to watch. not everyone feels like spending 700 bucks on a helmet cam. and not everyone takes a bigger hobby in photographing the scenery, than riding amongst the scenery.
a little boring but fun to watch
The extremely poor quality and slow riding affects the "fun to watch" factor. In fact, it makes the video practically unwatchable.Originally Posted by Help Im A Noob
Decent results can be had, even with a poor quality lipstick camera. It's a matter of technique (focusing on keeping your head still, choosing the right light/trail combo, etc.) and creative editing.Originally Posted by Help Im A Noob
Why do you assume that people who take better than mediocre pictures/video "take a bigger hobby" in the photos/vids than in riding?Originally Posted by Help Im A Noob
That's a really dumb comment.
It's hard to tell through a camera if you're going slow or not, but I just assume you are because of the fact you guys are major coasters. Pedal on flats and gradual dhs!!

To represent as greater than is actually the case; overstate: exaggerate the size of the enemy force; exaggerated his own role in the episode.
read the dictinary sometime, it helps.
