Shawangunk Ridge 04/28/15

I just got a deal on an open box Drift Ghost S, and on my first ride with it had a truck veer into my lane and a deer pop out right in front of me at 65-70. AGH!
But here is the beautiful Ridge in Gardiner, NY.

Mounting to the fork leg cuts down on the vibration and the video is much smoother... Heres an old video of mine with an Drift Stealth HD170 outdated compared to the new cameras now.720 dpi Field Of View 170 ...

weljo, it was mounted on the little flat spot on the side of the stock windscreen.. I heard it clicking around, but I think the mount was just a touch too loose..

This camera takes 30fps at 1080p, and when I used some cheap program it exported and youtube shows 1080.. But using imovie, and setting it to 1080 and exporting with "best" setting on, it only uploads a 720p video. Any ideas?

My old Mac Book Pro did the same. It would export it at 720 my newer Mac Mini or Mini Mac will export at 1080.

I have a 2013 Macbook pro, and OSX 10.10.3 with the newest imovie. I read that it chooses the bitrate of the first frame to export the movie with. Well, it's 1080, and I have the option of exporting at 1080.. My videos are 1080 when I view the file, but when I upload to Youtube it is only 720... ANNOYING!

Thanks for the info, I wore the camera on my helmet today, so probably by next week, I'll have some footage edited. Fingers crossed!

I like the helmet mount the best. Do yourself a favor and get the Drift Mic run it into the helmet. Cuts out the wind noise but you still hear the engine and sounds around you while your riding. If you get a mic take a small zip tie or bread twist tie and secure the foam piece to the end of the mic or it will come off.

Good call. I had the mic (only $20) in my cart, then last minute decided I didn't want it. After today, realising how kooky I can get when I'm in my little helmet world (beatboxing, singing, ranting about stuff, etc.) I SHOULD always have one in.

So, that mic pics up the sound still, just from inside the helmet? Any of your videos have this example (no music), I'd love to hear that.

EDIT: hmm, now they are available in 1080! Still looks blocky, but I guess it took longer for youtube to process the full res version.

hey man, I just did a test video where I shared it directly to youtube, as opposed to making a file on my disk. It has 1080p now, but it still looks pixelated and blocky. What is the deal with that? So many people have beautiful clear videos in 1080p with the ghost s...
