That's the Rotax all right. Good engine. I had the F650GS single for a few years and put 100,000 kms on it without ever doing anything but regular maintenance. It's still going, though not mine any more.

I can believe that all that fuel is heavy.

- Now this looks very promising to me as it would be nice to have a thumb button to take pictures without taking my hand off the bars. I have enough trouble as it is!

That's EXACTLY what I was thinking. Until seeing this, my option was some sticky velcro attached to the blinker/horn switch.

Virb remote shipped

My Virb remote that I had pre-ordered has been shipped from GPS city. The second it arrives I'm taking off on a long ride ---so it will be awhile before I can post how it worked out.

Anyway---they are available now has EmmbedEee has said.

Been Lurking & Crashing

I've been lurking here for some time learning what I could from all of you;thank you. I've just gotten one of these marvels (Virb) and took it for a ride a couple of days ago. We, here in Northern New Mexico, are having one of the mildest (snowless) February's in recent history so we just couldn't resist getting out and seeing if the wheels would still turn. This is my first effort so isn't so good and is typically too long, but I felt that since the "Crashing Series" had been started that I should contribute this episode....the crash is at about 5:10. Cactus is part of the charm of this part of the country, but can add an extra dimension to taking a soil sample.

Also new to posting these videos so didn't know how to embed one;

That did look painful. Kevlar gloves might be useful.

Good question: Just a guess but since it doesn't come with a USB cable, I would assume it's with batteries.

Thx, I ordered one last night and thought I'd ask. I'm guessing one of those quarter size button batteries.

Yes; a CR2032 would be my guess.

Great video! Nice to see another video from this part of the country.

An observation... today I was playing around while out in the car with the time lapse video mode and recorded about 20 minutes worth, at the 5 second interval. After I stopped the recording via the big slider, I continued to drive home. About 5 minutes later when I got there, I noticed the power icon on the viewfinder and wondered if the camera had locked up. The power icon stayed on for about 30 seconds, then it disappeared.

This makes me wonder if when people think the camera has locked up, they just need to be patient, and wait until it shuts off.

Might be worth a try.

Here's the video I recorded. Nothing special, but I haven't posted anything in days so I don't want to get rusty.

I like it, compresses something I wouldn't take the time to watch, into something I did watch.

I tried to time lapse digging my boat out of the garage, but couldn't get it figured out. I found the interval choices menu and picked 10 seconds, but couldn't figure out how to start recording.
So I took a still pic every time I moved something and it works as a slideshow.

Time lapse video couldn't be simpler. Go to Setup/Video and change the Mode to Time Lapse with an appropriate time interval. Go back to the viewfinder screen and slide the record switch over.

You can also set interval shooting in the photo menu but the video version results in a movie rather than hundreds or thousands of pictures.
