Go Pro/ Video Cam category?


I'm thinkin' really hard about getting a GoPro and I know there's alot of info scattered about the PKF but I for one would certainly benefit from a one stop shop for a category including a few seperate topics to cover equipment, software & editing tips, home made mounting gear and ideas, etc. It seems with the influx of relatively inexpensive Vid Gear these days, it would be a good fit for the PKF now that so many have GoPros or similar and many more people getting that stuff.

Yeah I've suggested that too ... video seems to be an integral part of our sport now :D

Hey was at the local electronics store yesterday - full HD 3D camera's in two flavours and a handheld with flip-out LCD screen that has a projector built into it - good for up to 60" ...! Neato toys :D




Yeah... I got a kite. Or two...

Oh cool! Totally OT except that it's electronic coolness ...

The latest in-car GPS navigation systems here have a forward-facing camera and overlay the live video with real-time navigation data eg. lanes, turning markers etc ... also seems able to track other vehicles, suggesting to follow them if they're going your way or displays 'safe' following distance :o

I think we are asking for more of a "making of videos" forum. To discuss what mounts/gear/software is being used, editing tips and technique.

I'd recommend the General Chit Chat forum for this.

We do that now, with ideas and good info scattered all over. :rolleyes: I go to look for something I remember seeing and it could be buried. Gen Chit Chat is where I lurk most but its sort of , well, general...However, I do use the bookmark regularly.

I know there's a ton of great info on this awesome forum. I bet this category would grow wings. There's been lots of vid discussions over the past year following the GoPro craze.

Can we try it and see how it goes?

There's a GoPro forum that has all sorts of great info on the camera: http://goprouser.freeforums.org/

You might also be interested to know that HobbyKing sells a $37 HD video camera: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idP...

Hint: if you wait on that page for a couple minutes, the price goes down to $35.
