You are a scientist exploring fission, admit it! Also known as the boob curve although I don't know why.

Hahaha, somebody else called it the Dolly Parton ride few months back.

I was actually testing the chestie strap on the go pro, meh! I thought it bounced a lot. Maybe my boobs are too big.

loved the twins comments and the second time you cliped in that girl on the left was funny as heck, man did she vogue for you.

I think you really missed your calling, you need to make fun documentary type ride videos of events and sell them.

Yeah, there are a whole lots of gals that love to smile for the camera. I've been told that girls don't want to be recorded or photographed but I find it to be the opposite The nice thing about the go pro is the 60 fps. Now I can slow down the video to show how many really smile for the camera. . Heck, I've had women stop me and ask about the recorders.

Yes, yes it is, summer is much nicer because of the sun and better lighting for the video.

I've become a fan of the GoPro's 'timed snapshot'. Last weekend, I let the GoPro take snaps for 3+ hours at 30 second intervals. At home, I had hundreds of shots to wade through but now and again I got an 'OK' shot. I kind of like this one:



Anyways, I will run the video on my next ride and see what I get. I missed some video footage a few rides back. I came to a 'one at a time' road construction site and as there was nobody present I rode through the single-lane corridor entrance. After I had started riding through the construction area, an 18-wheeler came into the area from the opposite side. He did not see me until a few hundred feet away. He jammed his brakes on and clouds of blue smoke filled the air as he hit the brakes hard. I wish I had video rolling for that.

...that would have been some interesting footage.

I saw your report, nice! I've though about doing the 5 second camera intervals maybe doing a time lapse video but man, that seems like a whole lotta work and alotta pictures.

Thanks!

That brings up an interesting thought. Back in the early 2000's, I had a software application that you pointed at a folder of stills and it made a 'movie' from those stills. Couple of clicks did the trick. That could work for me instead of throwing away 99% of my stills

I love the video aspect except for the size of the files. They get a little time consuming on my PC.

My Flip recorder has a built in editing program. One feature is a quick movie type thingie. It just randomly mixes the clips and produces a movie. Cool but I try to get mine in chronological order. Files are much smaller but the new go pros are higher def.

I had to upgrade my internet from DSL to cable or the go pro vids would have taken for ever to load on YT. Now they take about 40 minutes to load a 7 minute video in the 720 mode.

I made my first 3 or 4 in 1080 and they took an hour to load.

If I used the Flip now, it would be real fast.
