no probs at all, glad if you can find some useful stuff in there.
i used to trash footage too then always regretted losing various bits. got a huge external hard drive now. its a bit tedious, but i found it useful to put various tags in the video file names before i started editing e.g. "mt buller-pete-ktm-300exc-wheelie". so a year later if pete asks for all the footage of him, or i want a random wheelie vid, then i can just do a search on the hard drive. i tend to film in five to 20 second bursts so each bit of footage is pretty much about the one item so easily filed away. and makes editing easier too.
bit of footage from yesterday's ride below. wouldn't mind upgrading to the gopro hero 2 so i can film at 60 frames per second in high definition, as the slow motion looks like crap on the older model. but i didn't want to drop the definition to get the 60 fps as we were lifting snapshots of the girls' jumps from the vid to make some photos. the girls were getting some pretty good air! it's only their second time on an mx track...
