nice and early before 8am. It was a chilly 40degrees, but quickly warmed. Because in prior testing, the helmet cam angle was always too low, the evening before, I had fashioned a wedge using a doorstop to position the helmet cam at the appropriate angle, and affixed it to the brim of my helmet. Now I was ready for action. I had been struggling with how best to incorporate video in the ride report, and had concluded that simply recording the riding was boring. I had up 'till this point in the trip, tried to record some conversations that would show our situation, and mood, and tell a story. But now I was riding... and through some magnificent terrain as well. All of a sudden, I had an idea. <object width="640" height="360"> <embed src="http://cdn.smugmug.com/ria/ShizVidz-2009090604.swf" flashvars="s=ZT0xJmk9NjY2ODgxNDIyJms9Q0ZkcXQmYT05NzcwNzY1X3FwenlaJnU9MTAwMTI=" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" width="640" height="360"></object> Yes, mobile video updates. Unfortunately, the sound recording volume is lower than I'd hoped, and in reviewing all the video I shot, anytime I was moving faster than about 25mph, you can't hear what I'm saying at all. I assure you , I was providing some profound and entertaining, sometimes poignant commentary. You just can't always hear it. Some clips can be salvaged, and some of the riding is just too good to not post, even though I know after 30 sec it may be boring. So I'll sift through, and label any videos that are just riding segments as such so as not to waste anyone's time. For the other videos, turn up the volume all the way on both the video player, and the computer, and you should be able to hear. By the way, there's a microphone mod that's been described for these cameras that puts the mic inside the helmet for much better audio. That's now on my "to do" list for Mobius-5.
