    Garry's New Toy

    Two settings, see short clips below, about 2 minutes each

    High Definition big files, about 2GB to the hour

    or

    Standard Definition, about half the above but changes the field of view & obviously drops picture quality

    Will post more videos as the computing power allows, need to upgrade the compute to do any sensible editig

    Hi Dozer

    There are links in the above to a couple of short clips

    Cannot do much editing as computer is not up to the job

    The HD footage is very good though, even the SD is fine

    Will post footage links when I get some interesting stuff

    At the moment i am recording my commuting to try & get some intereting "moments" for survive the ride

    Really good videos Garry. Filter heaven the SD was really good viewing. Could really tell where you were looking. Head checks and stuff.

    Riding through the two lanes of traffic looks more scary on the video than actually doing it.

    Weird for me to was the absence of a wind screen.

    I look forward to seeing more of your videos.

    Excellent quality camera Garry. Much better than the stuff I posted through utube. Photobucket seems that its worth a try but my mac wouldn't read the format, only the pc. You could put a music track on it to get rid of the wind noise. Its funny that the traffic looks quite hairy through the lens and the speed seems magnified. We needed you yesterday up Macquarie pass, that would be a great 10 minute clip. or the Old Pacific Hwy on a weekend with all the sports bikes cutting through.Try getting an external harddrive to put your video footage on to free up the computer. Excellent new toy.

    Re: Garry's New Toy

     Hi Kiwiscoot

    The camera is Vholdr contour HD http://www.adventurecamshq.com.au/d10/contour-hd/

    The footage when played on the computer is awesome, not quite as good when uploaded to the net

    I am going to try to free up space on my computer to try some editing

    The clips I put up so far were really only to show the difference in quality between HD & SD, but yes need to dump the wind noise

    Let the fun commence

    Very impressive.

    I found a few layers of gaffa tape/100mph cloth tape over the microphone of my digital video camera cuts out the high frequency (wind) noise, but let the lower frequencies (engine/exhaust) noise through.

    Re: Garry's New Toy

    I've got one of these -though not the HD version.  Can you do a check for me and check the quality of the camera for picking up car license plates?  My standard definition one isn't quite good enough to discern unless you are right up close and personal (which is no good).  The other thing that I reckon would be useful would be to have the ability to plug in a microphone that you could have inside your helmet so that you could provide commentary.  The external one is somewhat pointless as the windnoise is simply intolerable - but it would be good to hear how Kiwis suggestion affects things.

    Re: Garry's New Toy

     Hi Steve

    You need to be within about 10m to read a license plate & in line

    There is no obvious microphone on the camera & no where to plug in an external mike

    Just have to dub something over afterwards

    10m sounds pretty good.  That way if you see the fuckwit on their mobile phone, you can get their number plate before coming up next to them and get a good picture of their guilty face.  Mind you, it might be better to move the mounting onto the LHS like mine is...

    Yeah - there's the internal microphone, but why bother?  To be able to plug in a small boom one would be great. Maybe next version...
