new GoPro testing

1st off, i'm officially the worlds worst when it comes to editing video's, i'm borderline full retard.

got a new Hero 2, been testing with it and determined I dont like the audio quality so I have a mini stereo mic with extension coming so I can record sound near the exhaust, turbo, me, etc and have it sound better. I'll mess with that more later, still in the mail.

Also included a walk-around of the car, got a few PM's asking for more detail shots of the MM front tray so here you go.

a few 2nd gear pulls up to ~70mph, drag radials sliding around pretty good now in 2nd. one 3rd gear pull on an on-ramp to redline, ~100mph+. Stupid traffic didnt help the fun factor here.

So here you go, 1080p avaiable:



critique/criticism encouraged.

Nice vid, your car is fast! I have a Hero 2 as well, what mic do you have?

Suggestions, cut out the parts where your pulling out of your neighborhood and cruising at 20-30mph / pulling into Royal Farms. This would reduce a 7min video to about half the time.

I just picked up a 2 $2 mics and a 25' male to female audio cable on amazon (roughly $10 total). I'm plan on keeping the mics in my trunk or taping them next to my exhaust behind the bumper, running the cable through the car to the gopro. Now all I need to test the setup is a skeleton case.

I used this info on the mics. Sounds pretty good.

As for editing techniques, my videos tend to be more sped up, using Windows Live! movie maker. I'm going to keep using it until I get Adobe Premiere Elements. Also, agree with what Dean said. Editing is a PITA but once you got it, it's pretty solid. i'm sure you've seen some of my vids on here.

Much better video Matt. Is the fish eye lens built-in? I miss my old e36 m3 watching this

Hey dude. Nice video. You obviously have a bad ass e36 M3. I do however have a friendly recommendation. Start the video after you get out of your neighborhood. I work in Ellicott City and after watching that video I now know exactly where you live.

I'm not trying to be creepy, but there are bad guys out there, who can figure out where your bad ass ride is.
