All caravans to CF3
 
I think it would be cool to get every caravan to run at least one car with a go pro. I am looking in to getting myself one and think it would be cool to have someone take all the video and put it together.

Does anyone know the battery life or how much video you can get out of one?

I don't know exactly the life n price but I was thinking of buying one and doing just that...or mounting a camera to my dash on the way

steveo9043 02-23-2012 02:36 PM

Does anyone know if any vendors sell them? Maybe we can get a group buy together?

IIRC, the battery life is around 3 hours or so.

or maybe that was the memory card capability.

but yes, GoPro's will be awesome to have... until the video is of the same person following you (or you following them) for 3 hours straight...lol

seriously tho, I'm planning on having a few cameras rolling for the cruise.

Well yeah It can get a little boring with the same thing. But You can always change it up every stop by mounting it in a different car.

A buddy of mine is starting his own video company. Starting off with weddings and such, got a gig going with a local arena football team. He suggested this to me when I was talking to him about C5 Fest. So he will be going through all my video and putting together a nice edited video.

You see a lot of these 1-2 min video's on youtube from the previous years and a few 10 min video's from someone with editing skills.

I want to put together a nice long video I can show off to people of the whole event.

I'll be rocking a go-pro tho whole time. I'm going to get a second battery and I'll keep one charging in the car while the other is recording. I think it will be pretty cool to do a video of the entire cruise sped up at 100x speed :)

Maybe I can collect a few clips from around the forum and have him put a nice video together instead of just going with my film.

That can work... I found one on summit for 299 so I am going to pic it up I think. And like you said at stops I might swap it around to different cars.. ill be rocking my gopro on the dash for drag day as well

I have the third one that robert posted on my helment now! It's awesome but your kind of limited on mounting because it' designed to be clamped on, while the go pro's have a pretty large assortment of mounting options.
