Thanks for the kind words bro, hopefully my next effort I have more ride and editing time and can get more footage of others like Snowvols now that I kind of have a clue what I'm doing hope to keep getting better!

Video looks good, and thanks for the tips on how to get the best results with the editing.

Couple of comments/questions:

- I've used my GoPro for other things (my gf made this video this past summer: Blue Pit Bull Diving for Gopro - YouTube), but not snowboarding yet. How do you know what the best angle is to have when "aiming" the GoPro off of your helmet? It would suck to get a whole day of awesome riding in, only to find that it was pointed too far down/up and ruined the video. I know you can buy the attached LCD screen, but that doesn't seem worth it.

- I have a 16GB Class 4 SD card, how big is your SD card and how close were you to filling it up after a day of riding?

- Suggestion: If interested, getting a pole mount to record video would mix things up a big and give some different perspectives (mix final video with helmet cam, pole mount, etc.).


Other than that, cool video and some pretty nice powder this early in the season. I'm going to ride Friday and/or Saturday/Sunday, but only groomers open so far in CO without much new snow lately (4" a couple nights ago, few inches predicted for Friday) so I doubt I'll record.

Definitely keep tabs on this thread to remember all the "tips" for making the final video.

Damn, blocked in the UK due to music.

Have a look at uploading to Vimeo, too... the quality seems to be better there and I've yet to run into any issues with the video being blocked in countries etc.

--Honestly this was my first time ever using any video camera(outside of my phone) and I had no idea what angle to choose so thats why it was all over the place, also I forgot to bring any tools with me so whe ever I hit branches, took a fall or hit it with my glove it got off kilter because the main screw was loose. I like the down angle so you can see the rim of my helmet and board but I think that can get anoying to the viewer since they want to see whats up ahead, more of an artistic view but generally I'd think you want it pointing just slightly down.

The WiFi backpack comes out in a month or 2 this way you'll be able to see what the gopro is seeing on your Android or iPhone in realtime, change settings, take photo's stuff like that and it works with both Hero1 and Hero2 models more info on that here GoPro Wi-Fi BacPac & Remote

--I have a 32GB card and about 30 minutes of filming at 1080p\30fps resulted in 3.6 gigs of data

--I for sure want a hand held pole mount for added flexibility and alternate views\scenes like you menntioned but I also want a built a telecoping mount for my avy shovel handle that can extend up out my pack with a stiff "bendy" end on it so it can be tweaked for like an over the shoulder view somewhat like this video Gopro backpack mount #1

--Yep we lucked out with an desent early season storm last saturday , was a ton of fun but we need mroe LaNina 2.0 where the hell are you!?!?!?!?

I am getting a GoPro Hero 2!! It will be shipping out Monday!!! Woot!! I have an 8GB card already, so I will just get a 16GB later on and that should do me. Then, I will buy another 16GB if needed. Memory cards are so small and light, you wont even notice having them in your pocket so why not save a few $$s and just buy more smaller ones, instead of one big one? Me=Teen=Thrifty

Nice edit, the effect in the beginning I felt was a little too much, though. :P

Thanks for the feedback, oh yea for sure I was just screwing around experimenting with the special effects.

The reason I went for the 32Gig is I want to do high detail time lapse photography(sun moving across the sky star\moon movement ect) with the Hero2 and the larger memory card you have the smaller time intervals you can use to create a video out of the 1000's of photo you'd have to take to put together the time lapse video but if your not planning to do any of that then you'd probably bet better off with 2 or 3 smaller cards.

Good question Live movie maker only lets you adjust brightness and apply generic effects
