Testing My New Gopro Camera

21 posts in this topic

OK,it's not driving the Lotus but it's fun!

 

Filmed 2 days ago as a test of my camera, still out there at the moment,and 2 more days on the slopes.....

 

Quality is much better if you view the video on Vimeo. The raw video file is awesome quality but when you upload to sites like Vimeo and youtube it always compresses it.

Alex, the raw file quality is astounding.

 

Wrong county I'm afraid!. I'm in Tignes. The video was filmed going across to Val D'isere.

I was in Tignes 1st week of Feb. Snowed loads, so snow must have been good.

I did some pole cam footage aswell (skiing - with a ski-pole!). Just feels a bit wrong blasting down with a ski pole like a sword!! Luckily I didn't stab anyone!!

I do feel a bit of a pillock holding it out in front of me, but less of a pillock than having a camera sat on to of my helmet!

 

Snow has been really good. Snowed last night and was a blue sky day until about 3pm today. Snowing again now, fingers crossed for another clear morning but I think I might be pushing my luck.

 

I find it very easy to use, it produces amazing results, the vimeo clip is crap compared to the actual video file. Battery life isn't great in the cold but I have a spare with me all charged up and kept in a warm pocket.

 

I'll be using it on track - if I ever get the car out of the garage wink.png
