Nice ride and video. Like the way you swing the V on the twisters.

Welcome and ride safe.

Yeah. In the first video, that was about 122 mph you were doing at 2:28, wasn't it?

Very nice clip.

What camera are you using? I have one of the cheap $10 mini-DV cameras and it's OK, but not as sharp and it has more rolling shutter effect than I see in yours. Did you modify the clip or is that the quality the camera gives?

Here is one of mine:

The Cape Smokey videos were captured with a FLIP self contained digital video camera (standard but they also have HD versions) . Local about $140. Just stuck it in under the chin piece of the helmet and added a small bit of duct tape. The trick came in editing because the camera (and video) was upside down in this position. Just gotta work on the audio a bit.

As mentioned the "Cape Smokey" clip was with the FLIP standard def digital camera from Walmart. It records in Divx. It lost a minimal bit of quality going over to You Tube. The only editing was through windows movie maker to "mirror" the video as it was recorded with the camera stuck upside down in my helmet chin piece. I'm considering a magnetic stick on wide angle lense from ebay for more field of view. The earlier view with handlebars and gauges visible was even more low tech. Done with my Canon A60 photo camera in movie mode. A discount store velcro strap around my chest and two rubber bands holding the camera on was the mount. Was a bit of a rush as "movie mode" would shut off after 3 min. Quality was meant for the era when You tube used 2 inch videos so now they enlarged it the pixels show how "old school" it was. Strangely this year the older Canon A60 video was picked up by Ad Sense. Lets just say I won't be quitting my day job any time soon.

You also might want to check out the GoPro HD digtial. Very small and made for this kind of video capture.

Go to the link in my signature and you can see how well it works. They also have a bunch of different mounts, perfect for bikes and cars.

Not that Slyders are not high quality. You did a great job on capturing that ride!
Just some different options for cams out there too.

The video I posted a link to was done with the GoPro Hero Wide Angle. I mounted it directly on my helmet.

Ohhhhh, that looks like fun. I'm trying to convince 2 of my friends to go out to Cape Breton next year to do the Cabot Trail. Those 2 videos should help!

Thanks
