i posted this up in DH-FR forum, but i thought i'd share it here too. so there is stilll a lot of work i need to do to get it dialed, but it's a start... i've got some ideas to control the shake, and the swinging of the arm. lots more R&D to be done...

Cool perspective. All things considered, the camera shake wasn't bad at all.

Tough getting it tight enough to hold position?

Yea, Imma buy the 5.10 rubber paint stuff and apply it to the clap that holds it to the bike. I'm hoping that will control the swinging of the arm on impact. Also making it a little shorter will cut down on shake, but not completely

Wow! That behind the bike vantage point was bad A! You talked the video down so bad I was not expecting much and then I watched the vid and... POW! I watched it again to see if it was really that good or my expectations were so low it just seemed good. Final verdict, SWEET! I posted this in the DH forum too. I really like this camera angle.

My first response was to GnarHammer's video. I actually like the wider view. It's cool to see the rider actually riding the bike.

Induction, that made my week! Thanks! But like I said, still needs some work. U2, taking a core sample is def a concern. I put some rubber stoppers on both ends(like those that coffee table glass rests on), thenn "plasti dip"ped (rubbery tool grip stuff) the ends... But yes, it's still a concern.

That's some cool footage...cool angle, the shake isn't really bad, makes it look really fast IMO...

Did you design the entire mount?

Very cool angle! I like that you can see the tires leave the ground. It gives a little more perspective of how much air you are getting. Nicely done!

Like the video! :thumbsup:
Good music selection too, goes well with the action!

In comparison to the Whistler video, yours seems to be almost in partial slow-mo; maybe it is the camera positioning? Definitely something going on that gives that impression (I'm relatively sure that is not an effect of my evening's libation!).:D
