Default Video. Learning Rodeos & FS cork 5s.

So the local spot had an airbag for the weekend. figured id use it wisely and learn something i might actually try...
back rodeos and cork front 5s.

The mount on my helmet broke the first hit (which was my worst) so i had the Line guy hold it.
i think they came along nicely for never throwing one on snow. (see it better Full screen)

Kinda really hard to see what you were actually doing. Casual (form member) put his camera on a tripod really close to a jump last year and did a bunch of runs over the same jump. Was way easier to judge what was working and what wasn't... That said looks like fun!

Yeah I'm not sure if you can get a standard tripod mount for the GoPro (Contour has a standard threaded insert in the bottom), but one of the coolest angles is to set it up and just let it record.

Unfortunately most action cams have wide angle lenses, which mean that even 20 feet away from a jump the rider is still small. You've got to get that camera real close so you can fill the frame!

With the good video editors, can you edit the vid to "zoom" the final result? I've found that my new Drift has over twice the resolution of the Roam by default. I could in principle crop the video and produce something lower res but "bigger" picture.

Didn't run it through premiere. Just windows movie maker. Not many options. Just some transitions and splicing. Like I said if its viewed in HD and full screen

zK...whats your approach and flip/rotation advice for your rodeo? I can't really tell from you video.

I'm about at the same level as you - I was practicing cork front 5s into our bag last weekend. haven't tried a rodeo yet (I can backflip though) but its next on my list...
