open topic, for anything cycling related.
I was assuming most agree that HD is better than SD, I was also talking about higher end cameras and not a $50 special.
Maybe next time I might have to back it all up with 3 degrees and pages upon pages of proof! NOT!
It's a discussion not an exam!
This is the internetz. Never, ever assume.
Plenty of people in this thread have talked about lower end spec cameras, with not so good optics.
You didnt visit that link then.
There's no rule of thumb at all, variances a huge across all categories of cameras.
My statement was a generalization.
If it was an absolute fact I would have posted gob loads of crap to back it up. Which seems the norm these days, what ever happened to general conversation?
yeah i know what you mean - but on things like that i see it more as a "statement of fact", which is misleading - especially when it could lead someone astray & into purchasing an expensive camera they dont need etc.
I was thinking more about night shoots and how it could be improved......
The GoPro HD has various resolutions, 720 (AT) 30 fps and 720 (AT) 60 fps for instance and two metering modes Center Weighted and Spot,
Now I usually just have the camera set to 720 (AT) 60fps and the metering is always Center Weighted. I wanted to try out the other resolutions mixed with the different metering modes.
The test was done shooting a street light, the time was approx 9:15pm
Well the metering modes made no difference at all. But the fps did make a difference, at 30fps the picture is a little lighter than it is at 60fps.
I know it's not much, but it may be the difference between getting the shot and not getting it.
No But I can take a photo in the morning for you.
It's not the most elegant camera when it's mounted to a helmet but it stays put.
The GoPro mounted to the helmet.
A shot of the helmet mount.
And here is a video so you can get an idea of the stability of the camera.
Thanks mate, much appreciated...
It's done using DashWare
I am using TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works Five http://tmpgenc.pegasys-inc.com/en/product/tvmw5.html and DashWare for the gauges http://www.dashware.net/
If I use DashWare to load in the gauges, it will obviously re-encode the file (choose HD format). But if I just want the video I just load it straight into TMPGEnc.
Kev a lot of people are using my VirtualDub suggestion & have having good results, i've written a guide that covers the big stuff:
This is pretty cool.
I can't vouch for the choice of music, although the name of the race is the Cherry Pie Crit.
Disagree, awesome video AND music
n = 3 for now
Yeah it makes it really easy to compare different days on the same stretch of road. I can get a better idea of how I am improving.
TheVexatiousLitigant has posted a couple of videos of his approach to mounting his Contour HD1080.
I have just bought the same thing, Ram Mounts. I have yet to fit them and try them, I am waiting for the new bike before I try them out.
I see he found out that having it too long introduces vibration.
So, is this one any good? It does say up front that it's not waterproof.
Once you can climb hills on a bike it's all downhill.
Hopefully I'll know what that's like..... one day.
I have two of them, you can buy waterproof boxes for them. They are OK for what they are, though I have found mine is less and less reliable and will not stay on for even a sub 1 hour commute anymore. I've stopped using them on the helmet. If you want to try one or two out, you're welcome to borrow mine.
And you can pick them up of fleabay fro less than $20.
