Couple of Pics

Just a couple of pics from the GoPro Wide I got.
I am not sure I like the camera yet... Maybe I had higher expectations.

Hmmm... They look pretty good to me. Maybe it's a getting familiar thing. Nice colors! Did you use a program to adjust them, or is that straight from the camera?

I think they look great especially for a 5mp camera did you have the chest mount strap. I have the GoPro HD on the way all the photos i've seen have been impressive especially the underwater shots.

Nice shots, I didn't like my Go Pro at first but I'm getting used to. What I don't like is not being able to shoot video and then edit the footage. For You Tube you have to keep your vids short to 10 minutes or less. With my old helmet cam I can shoot 3 hours of video, bring it home and using movie maker I can edit the footage and make short movies for You Tube or whatever.

You could try to edit them one by one, but that can't be much fun.

The camera shines on its videos more than just pics. Still, hard to beat that definition on the sky with vivid color of bike. Very nice.

I like the first one. I donít know if itís the speed, that the camera auto-focused on the bike or both... but the effect is neat.

for a 5mp I think they look great...I have an older Hero I think it was 3MP I used for Kayaking and was disappointing with the results. I think what I didn't like most was no screen to view the picture after you shot it.

The video is the part that I'm not so jazzed about. The videos on the gopro website were crystal clear. The ones I shot seemed to be less clear. Also I need to find a better mounting point. Pics 1 and 3 were taken using the suction cup mount on the tank. Video from there is a little shakey. Shooting video from the helmet doesn't show how far one leans the bike because you keep your head level with the horizon.... anyone using gopro getting good results from a different spot??

Pretty good!! That first pic is desktop material. Would I be able to sweet talk you into emailing me the full size version?

I think it's a toss-up on camera choices. I know lots of people with a GoPro version. I went with the Tachyon XC. when I got it FOV choices were like 50 or wide for the gopro & the tach is 90. However/whereever you mount it get a leash on it. I lost mine in the city & was so lucky to find it..& every trackday someone has their camera get off the bike early. Leash Law.

I like the way mine worked out.

Nice looking video! And nice road. I would swear that was the Texas Hill Country!

Moonshine Run in Arkansas. Two weeks of just riding around and exploring the area. We had a a great time and the people are so friendly I would have swore I was in Texas.

Yea, at first I thought you were filming in Florida, but I KNOW you don't have curves or elevation there! I almost called BS, then I saw the title. Heh heh...
