Got me all excited to watch a video and it wasn't here. Lol. It's probably better than my videos so no bashing on your skills here. Is Final Cut really that good?

+1 I use it and it works fine, though I tend to avoid the transitions and just have it run like a clip sequence on a sports network or something. Little 3-5 second clips of turns, jumps, etc.

One of these days I want to mount the contour to the bottom of my shotgun when I go trapshooting. Would love to see if I am ahead/behind/above/below the targets when I'm missing. Although I think the lens is far too wide angle for that, I probably wouldn't even see the bird!

Oh yeah, my favorite clips is with a chase boarder. I mount my camera to my head and follow my GF around for a couple runs. When she's got it mounted to her head I blast by her and shout obscenities.

Between my frequent gawking at the neighbours girlfriends, and constantly telling her she's just like her mother... Yes

If you spend some time cleaning your footage (which is fun in it's own right because you learn new skills) and give us something in watchable format, you will probably get decent responses.

It's like going to a restaurant and expecting fettuccine alfredo, and they serve you dry noodles. You can't expect people to watch and enjoy unedited footage.

Well that's a bummer. I was in the mood for a vid. You had humility going for you so I don't think it would have been a brutal thread. Had you come in talking shiz and then posted something awful...well, yeah. haha

my vids are mediocre at best and no one cares, its just fun to see some snow sometimes. also, pow videos are better than park usually.

alright some of you guys talked me back into it. i did edit it some more and reduced the lift ride and fixed some of the transitions. i'm waiting for it to format and then will load again tonight. Just getting in the habit of actually using the gopro was probably the hardest part. then when i'd actually remember to take it and use it the battery would be dead. missed a lot of good footage but next year I'm going to have 2 or 3 going.

With my contour I turned it on at the start of every run, and stopped it while taking a breather. Pretty easy to flip on and off and get used to. However I found that in a day of riding there was very little that would actually count as clip worthy footage. Most of it just looks like you're going much slower than it feels, and because I tend to carve in short quick transitions my head tends to stay in the same place while my board and lower body are carving. The video's look like I just cruise straight down the hill!
