Finally got a Go Pro

Postby Mugglechops » Thu Apr 12, 2012 2:39 pm

As the heading says, I finally got one.

Now I can try and make some videos.

Here is my first attempt all filmed within about 5-10 minutes of home.

I've been wanting to get one for myself for a while.. just have to scrap together the funds and justify it. Want to take it out surfing too!

Chest mount looks awesome.

Yes, chest mount gives a much more stable picture. You don't realize how much your head jiggles until you put a camera on it.
I lurve my GoPro !!

Got a race on tomorrow so will take it out again.

You will want a bigger computer next. My little MacBook with just 250 GB is now full as a goog. And the processor is struggling with the big files.
Hopefully I'll upgrade to a MacBook Pro with a humongous hard drive soon.

Thanks. Yes all pretty much the same. $400 is the aussie price from here you can get it lots cheaper. JUst use hbf i the coupon code for a further 5% off. Takes about 4-5 days to arrive.

Some more videos from racing on Sunday. It seem the chesty picks up my heartrate :D
