    So I decided to give this action cam thing a shot. I wasn't sure whether I will keep at it so I did not want to shell out the $ for a go pro. This is a cheap cam. I set it to 1080p 30fps, mostly default setting, wide angle obviously, side mount. I set it to 3 min clips so it is easier to edit, but may be this is a bit too short? Edited with imovie. Nothing too fancy: put a bunch of clips together. Took out the video where i wasnt riding. Added transitions and titles. Shared the video as a file and uploaded to youtube.

    I am pretty happy with the end result given that I did not spend much $ or time on it. Also realized how slow i truly am :bash :biggrin

    Good stuff, Ankur.

    You can also use QuickTime to trim videos and quickly save them full resolution.

    Did you use Youtube's auto stabilization?
    Personally I don't like how it makes the video look kind of unnatural.
    But the camera seemed to capture good video.

    The nice thing about gopro's is they make you look way faster than you actually are. In real life me and Ankur are about the same speed, but the camera does all the magic. :wink

    Thanks! Having a bike with all that low end torque really helps. It is amazing how slow i can go in 2nd gear and have a ton of power to get over those rocks; especially after the tps mod.

    Looks good. Good to know there are some cheaper options out there in case anything happens to my GoPro. Do you have an idea of the battery life when you have it consistently recording? My old one would last about 2 hours on a single battery, which was more than enough.
    I also like it a lot better now that you took off the auto-stabilization.

    Looks really good ! I enjoyed it. That TT track is fun since they combined the two tracks into one. It used to be the ATV track and a TT track.

    Thanks! Yeah, I like that TT track a lot. I have been meaning to ride the MX track for a while but I never have, I am worried I will be like a roadblock in other MXers way :biggrin The TT track is perfect for a noob like myself. It has three very small jumps and I enjoy riding it!

    You would do fine on the MX track If its not racing, just hold your line, be aware of your surroundings, ride in your limits, and if you do go down, get off the track asap. Otherwise the hot dogs can go pound salt and cry on someone else's shoulder ! HAH

    Your videos look just as good as my hero session! Might have to snag one of those for extra angles, do the mounts/hardware/cases work with the gopro stuff too?
