Here are some videos from this past winter, remember I am neither a professional boarder or cinematographer, plus the conditions sucked this past winter.

Not sure why but you have to click on the Vimeo icon in the bottom right of each embedded image to view each movie.

Some drunk riding on St. Patrick's day, notice all the people going down (Pat's Peak, NH).



One of my first days with the camera, just messing with different mounts/angles (Ragged Mountain, NH).



A video of a friends 4 year old daughter, she rips it up on skis, her mom did some of the filming (Killington/Pico, VT).

I had the opportunity yesterday to skydive with a former member of the US Army Golden Knights - it was an incredible experience! I was honored to be asked to join the dive, and learned a lot. Captured with a Hero 1080p. I am red/black/silver:

Took this video this weekend. Not very exciting but first time I mounted it to a helmet. I think it worked out well. I actually took a spill at the end and need 5 stitches. Yes I didn't have enough gear on I am aware of that just in case you felt like lecturing me. We were working on my brother-in-laws track, we should of taking the time to put all our gear on but were just testing some of the stuff we had done. Still no excuse and as a result I had to spend 3 hours in emergency. Yeah me!

I suppose this is appropriate. My band wanted to make a little promo for a concert coming up. We took the go-pro and stuck it on the hood of the truck and drove down to the venue, then sped up the footage. The choice of music probably could have been better, but oh well. I had another camera inside the car facing the whole dash and looking out the windows (hell yeah 11mm lens on a dslr) and I thought it would be cool to see the wheel move, but it didn't turn out to be all that interesting.



We may or may not have tried to beat that red charger at 0:14 It was probably a straight piped 4 cylinder, it was one of the worst sounding cars I've ever heard. We probably would have beat him... but we were in a big old Toyota Sequoia

Didn't look into it yet, is there a wide angle accessory/setting for the GoPro?

I need to replace my dashcam.

It comes standard with a wide angle and there's an option in the menu to film it in cropped mode to kill the wide angle effect.

On this one... the GoPro Footage starts at 1:00 - shows the crash from outside the car first, then the crash from inside the car. This footage is of my brother. He's on the forum here too.... Username: KDS07

The WiFi Backpack is amazing.

I use my GoPro camera to capture footage within our race cars. Being a circle track car, we run full containment seats - the driver cannot reach the camera to turn it on if we mount it in a place to capture our the window & the driver's steering wheel movements. With the WiFi Backpack, I take the remote up into the spotter tower with me and turn the camera on basically from the grandstands while the car is on the track.

I can also turn it off during caution flag situations to save on memory card and battery. It's pretty amazing... I have gotten it to work at very far ranges too!

(on this video here, I was able to turn the camera on & off anywhere on this 1/2 mile track - even at the furthest point down into turn 2! )

Nobody else uses their GoPro for motorsports footage?
