Default Long Vid - Lake Louise last weekend

I realize this is VERY long, and not very well put together. So I'm ready to get flamed! But here's some riding we did at Lake Louise a few days ago...

BTW: Anyone know if Vimeo has less compression on the videos? This one looks horrible compared to the raw file on my computer.

Not bad too bad. What camera did you use?

I'll be there in two weeks. Hopefully they get a bit of fresh snow soon eh? none on the forecast.

Thanks! Camera was a plain jane Contour Roam, with the 60 fps hack done. I might need to use better editing software because just watching the raw files look great in slow motion... Oh well, I record this more to look back on after the years and see what we used to ride.

My GF (in the red jacket) loves seeing her videos over the last few years to see how far she's come. She tore her MCL that day and the carving at the end of the day was with the pain, still she was trying really hard on her heelside!

I'm not sure about the douche that had an accident with her and tried to mate though!

What software do you use to edit?

I bought a sony action cam a month or so ago. It's pretty chunky but the picture quality looks to be decent. Am heading up to lake louise within a couple weeks will be good to test it out on the snow.

Cyberlink powerdirector 9 I believe. I've tried Windows Movie Maker but found it locks up a lot. PD9 is actually relatively easy to work with, and I've got it outputting in M2TS format now which doesn't seem to process the video as much. Actually the video produced looks pretty good, but when it's uploaded to youtube it seems to really get shitty.

Was looking at the Sony too recently, I feel like in another generation or two ALL the cameras will have high FPS rates at the lower price point.

You should have fun at LL, there's pretty good cover in most places. Even if no new snow falls there's still fun to be had there. If you get new snow it'll be great!

Looks like it was a fun time!

Loved the POV. Especially in the trees!

Thanks! Yeah I was actually thinking about cutting out a lot of that POV because most people find it boring...

It blurs really bad but I hit that tree HARD with my leg. Went to jump off the rock to the right and instead I lost my edge and slid pretty fast into the tree. It's funny to watch it now but it scared the shit out of me for a split second! Thought I broke something...

I watched the entire thing, mostly because I liked the POV so much! Through the park was fun to watch, too.

Yikes - the blur made it seem like it wasn't that bad. But when it took you some time to get up, I wondered about that. Glad you're okay!

POV really shines with tree-riding. Then you WANT to see what's coming, not necessarily what the rider's doing.
