Whoa, FD!

It has been so long since I have seen anyone in a suit and tie. My first thought was, "Is he with MIB?"

Dave, I'm starting to see those camera mounts on my home break. Can you tell me more about the model, its capabilities, how it's mounted on the board, and how it stays there after you pearl?

One other critical question-- are you able to operate the controls once and leave it running, or do you have to keep whipping out your reading glasses to tweak its settings?

GoPro wide angle High definition sport cam.
http://www.goprocamera.com/products/?area=2

Uses an SD card, Li battery and waterproof housing. Continuous filming or interval pic's. Mounted with big sticky base on a board, helmet or other mounts for bike, etc. Big housing buttons for us older "blind" guys but you have to start and stop it from the camera. Super wide anlge lense makes in ideal for onboard sports stuff.


Here is a video I made with my daughter this summer. Helmet cam shots are with the Gopro but I am complete rookie at formats, editing and just about everything else so probably not a good demo at all, but fun makin it. Might be choppy if ya don't have the bandwith (needs to cache). Cheers!

Thanks. Boy prices have dropped. Two years ago I spent over $400 for my (now waterlogged) Olympus, which I found very difficult to operate without reading glasses.

It seems a lot easier to have a camera mounted on the board rather than trying to juggle it in an arm holster.

WOW Dave! Great video. Nice editing and all. She looks like a neat kid.

What happens when the kite takes off higher than you want to go? How much control do you have? I hope there is some kind of release.
