I know you ladies bought a bunch with the recent Black Friday $150 sale, who's gotten there's yet? Who's having issues? Who has some videos to share? Post up your answers here.
Mine are yes, yes, and yes.
here's my first test with the head strap, on r4, which is 170* viewing angle and 960p. Seems to work great!
Then I stick it to my DD and drive around the block. Sorry about the low light, it's not even 5pm yet either. This is on r5, which is only 127* viewing angle, but now 1080p. I'm having some skipping issues. Anyone know about this? Is it a low light situation? Moving too fast for 1080p? I have a 2gb PNY optima SD card, and I know they can be sensitive to memory cards.
The awesome thing about the hero2 is the ability to stream video from a wireless connection with their adapter. It would be cool for things like watching the race in car for people who can't be there. It would have been awesome for the 949 team at thunderhill. We will be getting this setup for our lemons car.
Yeah my bad. Most people wouldn't use the wireless system, but I know we will get some use out of it. I have had the original go pro for a while now and I have been waiting for something like this to upgrade.
On the Gopro forums, there are a couple threads on people that made theirs work on a wireless service in the same way the new one will.
I absolutely love this shot. It's the one time I'm thrilled to have stock suspension. The most surprising is probably the end when I come barreling back into my driveway and the tire tucks into the fender.
I'll eventually post some miata shots btw, these two shots have just been much easier on my DD rather than moving the DD, moving the **** behind the miata, pushing it out, mounting the camera, and THEN going for a drive.
edit: This new daylight video brought to you by resolution setting number three. (720p@60fps)
I got mine - but have yet to test it out. I bought a hero2 over the weekend while at Road Atlanta, so I hadn't the need to dig out the one from ebay yet. There's discussion in the 25hr 949racing thread about the new hero2 being able to feed live video with a transmitter coming out sometime in Feb. For now, the next purchase is the 3D case so I can rock the 55" 3D tv I just got
That's probably it. I'll eventually get the class 4 GoPro suggests, it's currently just stolen from our camera. Yeah, it's not labeled as any class, so I'm guessing that's it. I'll get the 4gb class four eventually. Thanks, forgot about that.
Couple shots with my roll bar mount. Just got a suction cup mount too. Was going to get a video driving through the river that was forged across our street, but it had drained by the time I got it setup.
Couple things. It SUCKS in low light, and the sound is not very good to say the least. I just leave the water tight back on mine always. The open back is fine for filming stuff with people talking, or low sound level things. Any time of movement or wind noise just kills it with that open back.
I'll post some different videos / different applications for a better idea.
Mounted off the side of my car with a suction cup mount. 720p @ 60fps (though my editing software saved it as 480 or something)
Just holding it, while cruising to the dragon. 720p @ 60fps
Idiot rolling his quad upside down over top of it. Great durability, everything was fine after all this. Though when it got smashed it hit the button and shut it off.
I also have a video of it mounted on my pretty insane RC car shot in 1080p. But youtube don't seem to like processing videos of it's size.
Here it is, but it will NOT show up in full resolution until youtube figures all that out and makes it full size.
