    What goes down must come up

    Did you use a POV helmet cam? I'll assume the camera had image stabilization. Did you do any stabilization in the processing of the video?

    Very nice vid

    We used a Viosport helmet cam, the cam doesn't have video stabilization, we do a little post processing but mainly the camera needs to be mounted very tight and being careful of not shaking too much.

    We hit 55+ on some of descents, some of the gradients at top reach over 17%. We are very lucky; the area is our back yard and part of our Saturday’s group ride

    Thank you. I use Adobe Premiere and a really good high resolution helmet cam.

    VIO was formerly Viosport, they changed names but I do not know when. I am not sure about their product line history but there current and only offering I know of is the POV.1 camera. They used to have a model called the Adventurcam or something like that. They are certainly the cat's meow of helmet cam's. Nice toy.

    Before I used to use the Adventure 3 cam, the tandem video we did it with the POV.1. It is a really good system.

    I have not taken the plunge yet on one of these, but for those that are interested, I found a "helment cam review" website that gives some good feedback on the choices.
