Out today filming with my Canon HV30 HD camcorder. I tried the "Cine mode" in 24p, and it looks pretty awesome and "film-like". Hope you enjoy!

is that a 20 or 24 inch wheel? every time i pull out my uni (24") i always get discouraged after getting annihilated by a couple little bumps, or getting super tired after 300 feet.

It's a 24". What do you ride? The choice of uni for off road trail riding can make all the difference. And also tire pressure, seat height, pedals and technique all will play a part in your results. When I first started, I was getting thrown a lot (we call it "UPD" short for UnPlanned Dismount) since I was new to it, and also because the first unicycle I had was way to weak and flimsy for MUni (Mountain Unicycling). Go here to check out different types of unis: http://www.unicycle.com/unicycles/rough-terrain

I ride the Kris Holm 24" freeride mountain uni. I upgraded it quite a bit with hydraulic brake, 65mm large marge DH rim, CF seat base and lift handle, and other stuff. I have about $1,200 into it.

i have a 24" torker DX, i really have barely ridden it though. Once i got the hang of riding around on concrete i kind of lost interest in it.

Its comforting to see that a few people on this forum do muni. I have a nimbus 26" muni with a duro leopard 26x3.0. It's heavy and took a while to get used to (get the strength to) do technical stuff but its a blast to ride. I do mostly XC stuff but there are a few trails around that have some almost trials style riding and the 26er doesnt actually do to bad. Nice skills by the way. I would never hold a camcorder while riding (because i would probably drop it and break it).
