Six to Go: Trying out the new videocamera
For the upcoming trip to The Bahamas, I managed to get my hands on the new Go Pro Hero 2 videocamera, a nifty little creation that you strap to your hat, your chest... the hood of your car... you get the idea.
I've admired Ivan Orsic's GoPro videos over at Yukon Goes Fishing for sometime, and recently, Russ Schnitzer made a GoPro video from a recent trip to the Bahamas. I was seriously impressed.
About the only thing I don't care for is the underwater footage from the camera. It's just not in focus, so I didn't include any of it in the little test video I put together after a recently jaunt up one of the more storied rivers in my neck of the woods.
Keep in mind that the next video will be from the tropics, and not from the snow-lined banks of the Henry's Fork. And, after looking the snow-laden forecast the next few days, that trip south is going to hit the spot.
