First Day Out with my Helmet Cam!

by bert on March 8, 2011

The helmet cam changes everything! It was a fat day and I got some good video:

Probably like you, I’d been seeing the video from these helmet cams and seeing them on people all over but I was amazed at how easy they were to fire up and get using. I’m not supposed to use the brand name in my copy, but the initials are GP!

Got the Helmet Cam – now to edit . . .

Now that I have this helmet cam stuck on my head and I can turn it on and off . . . I need to get the editing figured out. If you can help please comment below. I use a PC, (save the “you’ve gotta get a Mac” jokes for later) and I’m running it through Camtasia to edit. As you can see, by the time I get it on Youtube you can’t even see how killer the snow was.

Vimeo and a GP Helmet Cam?

Is that the hot ticket? What is the deal? I notched it down to the WVGA setting to make the file smaller because the upload time to Youtube was agonizing . . . is there an easier way? Is Vimeo better for some reason? Tell me! I’m loving this helmet cam experience but I want that “I’m there” feeling to come through.

Are you getting a GP helmet cam?

GP Helmet CamIt seems kind of strange but since I started wearing my helmet cam it’s made me think about the way I’m skiing differently; like instead of just ripping any which way, now I’m thinking about how it’s going to look on a video. It’s really added a new dimension to my powder addiction.

Stay tuned for a remake of this video, once I get educated and dialed in with the editing software, I’m going to pass on the full effect!

Nice video Bert (music too) – I almost felt like I was there!
Bit of a dull day, but looks like there was plenty of powder – yippee.
How many of those red poles did you take out under the ski lift?

Hey Tony! Thanks and glad you liked it. No red poles were injured in this exercise . . . I practice it a lot! I live for those dull days . . . if it’s sunny there is no reason to be up there . . . no new snow! Have to get better with the video work though . . . you can’t see how really deep the snow is and . . . let’s face it – that’s really all that matters. ;b)
