Trying out my GoPro HD Sport Camera

Got a GoPro HD Sport Camera and just made a video with it to share.






The video is degraded for the internet, but trust me it is vivid strait from the camera. The clarity is great! I mounted the camera on my door to see the front wheel as we drove in the first part. The wide angle lens catches so much. Then you will see a part where I was walking up to Multnomah Falls and just pointing the camera to take the video. On the way back home I mounted the camera in another spot on our car to see how the video would turn out. I couldn't be happier with this camera.

You can play the footage right from the camera to your HD TV and it is as if you are there. Now I need to find some good editing software. I will try and re-make the footage in a higher resolution and post it.

The camera takes a great wide angle shot, but it does a much better video.

They still lose quality no matter what. I tried it before just so they can save memory space

Go here and under "Editing Tips and Tutorials" click the link for Streamclip. Use this software to crop down the video so you have sections under 15 minutes for upload to youtube. Just remember to always leave the quality at 100% with "Interlaced Scaling" left unchecked. Then, when you upload to youtube, it will retain all of its clarity. It will take a while to upload, but once it's done, the youtube video posted will be in full 1080p just like the original (they also scale it down to 720p, 480p, and 360p for lower bandwidth visitors, but that's just a selectable part in the bottom right of the video on youtube).

If you want, you can check out my uploads on youtube to see what kind of quality you can expect. Mind you, I think my lens is messed up and making the vids a bit blurry...

Anyone that owns one needs to go to gopro.com and download the firmware update released today under support, adds a few new cool features and fixes a bunch of bugs.

yeah, duh, it's obviously compressed for streaming purposes... but the YouTube video link posted is to a video that can only compete with a standard point and shoot camera... or, even a good quality camera phone.

there is plenty of HD media on YouTube - i've created some - but this video surely isn't even 720p
