GoPro video of the week: Pushing Boundaries With Oracle Team USA


Step onboard the speedy AC72 with defending America's Cup Champions, Oracle Team USA. See what it takes to operate one of the world's fastest sailing vessels, in one of the world's most demanding and challenging settings, the San Francisco Bay.

Has anyone been watching the America's Cup finals?

Great post, sweet vid. Those boats must be absolutely littered with cameras, lol.

I was there yesterday. Friend of mine was invited by one of her vendors and I got to be her +1. Went out on one of the Hornblower boats and watched the Kiwis tear the hide off Oracle.

Even though the winds yesterday were fairly light, those boats RIP across the water. When they hit a broad reach and get foiled up, it's really amazing to see how fast they go. I'd love to see them in stronger wind.

I took a bunch of pics. If any of them turn out decent, I'll post them.

I'm not sure what the spectating is like from onshore, but if any Fanatics in the Bay Area have a chance to go out on one of the spectator boats, I'd for sure recommend it.

What is a good program to edit pictures off of the GoPro? I guess any photo editing program would work. I am looking for a low cost or free one. I have downloaded the GoPro Studio for videos as well.

Try GIMP. It meets the free criteria, and is pretty damn good when it comes to photo manipulation.

My Ride: Is in a salvage yard
I went on vacation last weekend and my mom's pics from her Galaxy S4 turned out better than the ones taken with my GoPro Hero3 Silver. Am I doing it wrong??

edit: I have ZERO photography experience.

...I would also say that GoPros are meant more for video than pictures.

Has anyone ordered a 3+ yet? Any reviews out? I'm like an Apple fan boy with gopro stuff. Must have the newest thingy always. Despite most of the time my cameras sitting around unused.

Send me some of your old unused thingies and I'll make sure they don't sit around unused. Poor forgotten unused sitting around thingies.

Not the most technical review but still gives a good overview of the new model

The GoPro footage is at the end of this video, as it has both the grandstand view and the in-car view of the festivities here:
