Weird.

This is the photography/video section. Not "Post your shitty gopro video here".
I dont get it, nobody here has any interest in photography? I have a t2i and im saving up for a hvx200. I think people should expand to better video quality. Put more time into it. I mean, gopros are cool and all. heck even i own one, but some videos are so fucking bad and so goddamn boring...

Anyone else feels like they are sick of gopro vids? or at least shitty ones...

I'm sick of shitty GoPro vids. I actually got a new Hero 3 black for the holidays and other than testing it out, I haven't really filmed with it since I can't really justify taking it out unless I have something sweet to film. I put that thing on my head one time and said "never again" after I watched the film.

The only things that I can justify taking it out for are: first tracks on deep powder days, cliff drops on deep powder days, attempting new tricks in the park (gotta get the falls on film). But that has yet to happen...

The other thing that keeps me from taking it out is finding a pole that will collapse to under 8 inches so I can store the whole setup in my cargo pocket. This is the one reason I wouldn't want to take another camera out. I would never spend a day just filming and I would be scared to carry shit in my pack all day.

I agree with you pov footage is boring now but im not willing to take my 1500$ d90 on the mountain, just too dangerous, or my hc x900m and have them get damaged plus dslr lenses are temper-metal in extreme temperatures.

when your a man sometimes you wear stretchy pants in your room just for fun

Really doesn't matter how crisp your video is if the riding is shit. If the riding is good I'll watch it even it is shot like the worst 80s porn.

Yeah, but im seeing these videos of people literary just riding groomers. I kind of agree with expensive cameras, they are nice and stuff. But if you take care of them and have a backpack special for dslr's then there shouldn't be any problems. I remember seeing this one video that was shoot on an iphone. It was Eero and Heiki riding a park.... So sick.

Yeah, different people have different goals. If you're trying to make art, great. I've seen some shitty art too. POV vids don't make me say "wow, that's art" but they do make me say "I gotta go there" or "I gotta try that" or if it's my own vid, "Wow that was fun" or "damn, that hurt!"

Personally I love seeing a video of an average dude having an awesome day/run/pow day. I am an average rider and enjoy seeing the average guys videos. Whether the video is lame or boring technically if the rider is loving it you can tell and it gets me stoked!

Typically any photos I shoot I end up using for either the website or for promotional use for companies. It's like stoke you guys out, or see my photos/videos being used by companies that give me money. I like money.

Trust me I treat my cameras like there my girlfriend, its not me or my riding that concerns me. It would be some idiot in the park or kid running into me drop a nice camera in the snow and you bound to break something.
