Why did you post that? You are just riding around your neighborhood. The music is cute but the video is horrible.
I posted it precisely because the video didn't turn out well and it'd be nice if there were some actual constructive comments about improving it, rather than the mean-spirited crap you posted.tscheezy said:Why did you post that?

Thank you.tscheezy said:Ok, here goes. Direct sunlight is the only thing that brings out colors for these vid cameras. Cloud cover always makes the colors look subdued or muddy. I don't even film on cloudy days, even in the forest where you don't get much direct light. The GoPros do an excellent job exposing in sunlight as long as you aren't going from light to shadow quickly, or in deep shadow (under a tree) with bright sunlight in the background.
These cameras don't capture the pixel depth and resolution that still digital cams do, so there is not much information in the file for software to enhance. If you shoot in poor light, you get disappointing video from it.
Yeah, I had the camera flipped upside down, but I had not flipped the J-bracket for this video. Upon seeing these results, I flipped the j-bracket, and now the camera can aim lower.Fullsailbiker said:You can see that in the opening shot of your video that your camera is pointed above the horizon so that it is "metering" the light level of the sky rather than the ground that you want to see. My guess is that even in that light you could get "reasonable" results with the camera pointed down just enough that the FOV is >50% in the direction of the ground and this will also make the view of your arms seem more natural too. I also put my chest mount as high on my chest as is comfortable for these same reasons (no bellybutton cam field of view) Just my 2c. I just ordered my HD Go Pro, can't wait to start making videos with some clarity. Have fun.
