    Gorgeous lake! Boat sounded nice! Were you trimming it out much? How fast was that? The camera nevers does speed justice. I'd like to mount a goro to the bow of my 2+3 and get a video point towards the stern to get the people's faces and maybe see more of the boat resulting in a good sense of speed.

    Thanks

    Video was taken on Folsom Lake, Calif. in the area of the North Fork of the American River. Had minimal trim, just enough to adjust for one fat guy and another fatter guy. Probably pushing about 410 lbs passenger weight, not including a half tank of gas. As far as speed...I can only guess in the mid-sixties?? Spedo read 25. Good thing spedo is broken, because when the wife says I'm going too fast, I just tell her the spedo is only reading 25. Engine is a 350 mag, with Alpha 1 and a Quicksilver prop, which I think is stock. With the GoPro, I've tried different locations and have gotten some good results. Just make sure you attach some kind of life line to the camera base. Had the camera mounted on a 21' Boston Whaler bowsprit and about 5 minutes into the video, the mount came loose. Had it tied to the deck, so it didn't go bye, bye. I think it came loose, because of a dirty deck surface.

    Cool, well your video has inspired me. My old gopro was scratched up badly so I ordered a new HD one last night with the LCD back. I'll try to make a video, the way I'm talking about this week. I wish my old one wasn't scratched up, it would be cool to use two at the same time to edit somethign together.
    I'll make sure to use a laynard and probably some 100mph tape too.
    Cheers!

    Still trying to get the hang of editing. Using Freemake now. Camera is great, but with only two function buttons, stuff happens. Pushed the wrong sequence and ended up taking about 300 photos, spaced one second apart. Delete, delete, delete...
    Heard some good stories about GoPro's customer service, including freebee stuff. Maybe they'll replace the lens for ya?
    Get that video done and post it!

    Ha, I can't tell you how many times, I've tried to record a motorcycle race or something only to get still shots, five seconds apart, upside down, lol. yes, it can be difficult deciphering the symbols on the LED screen. With this new one, I wound up ordering the LED back which is a seperate component and removes the ambiguity of view angle, settings, etc.
