Computer Requirements

Gents,

I'm almost there with the camera however just need to find out what computer requirements i need to run it. Looking on the go pro website they ask for a minimum of



For Windows-based computers, we require:
  • Windows Vista or later
  • 3.2 GHz Pentium 4 or faster
  • Direct X 9.0c or Later
  • At least 2 GB of system RAM
  • Video card with at least 256MB of RAM
I however have a laptop with a much smaller processor so thats no good but i do have a desktop with Windows 7, and a pentium 2.7ghz Pentium 4 Processor.
I will need to up my ram which is cheap enough.

I dont want to buy the camera if the computer wont handle it. Although could just get a new computer. Agreeed by wife if she can use the camera show jumping.

My question is chaps, do you think the 2.7ghz will be enough to run the camera. What are you guys using.

Yep, brand new 32gB Class 10 card. This was my thought as well but not sure how I would fix this, surely a class 10 card is a class 10 card?

Have you updated the firmware on the gopro? There's a new release out that it asked me to do when I installed the cineform software. I don't know what improvements are in the update. Which card is it that you're using? Have you tried different resolutions & frame rates? Hark at me, I sound like I know what I'm on about

Today I got a link to a review on Action Cameras, alas for the most of us it's in Dutch.

And the winner is the VIO POV HD.

i'm nearly ready to get my video of the RIB with my gopro2, the difference over a normal video is my other hobby is RC helis so i built an AV platform to carry a gopro so will be getting overhead shots shortly all going well.

this is the first video i took-it is a lot smoother now but i've maxed out vimeo for this weeks allowance-will post more in due course.

ps remember to clean your lens before filming (note to self)

Untitled on Vimeo

cheers
