This is my first utoob video
This is my first edited video from the GoPro
It is practically my first video ......
So I went for the stick it on the 'A' frame and see what we get approach
Must say that I have learnt a bit from this, but 1.5 hours to upload to utoob
For the technically minded it was shot in 1080p, at 25 fps (PAL) at the narrow field of view, 90 deg (I hate the fish eye effect).

No problems - must admit I was surprised you made it with enough water - I envisaged you stuck on a mud bank for a couple of hours - but glad you made it.
Speeding in Poole Harbour??? maybe a little just outside

Thanks Alex, Nathan, Mick.
Alex, is 1.5 hours a typical upload time for YouTube?

Probably as you uploaded in 1080 which is HD and I reckon it was well worth the wait as it looks great.

We watched it earlier at my parents on a big LCD TV and everyone thought it was a great video, even my sister said she wants a boat now

And they all said I should upgrade my camera, which I will do now that I have seen yours

Ian, great vid
I reckon the a-frame mounting is ideal, why the eye rolling? Did you think it was a poor result?
I would have thought the a-frame mounting will give much less movement than further forward or handheld.
The vid shows just how calm we had it

Hi Neil, I did not see you at the Wheatsheaf, apologies if I blanked you.
I did not spot your RIB either which is a shame, I would have liked a look see!
The eye rolling was about my lack of thought as to the content, the vid would have benefited from some scene setting shots, such as a pan around the pub, much as Alex does. However, the GoPro is not easily used as a hand held, but there again few so called action cameras are any good in this mode (apparently!).
Yes the 'A' frame mounting seems very good, but I would like to experiment with some less well used locations

Hi Ian
With the software you use to put together the video, is it able to splice together video and/or photos from different sources? I was wondering if you could leave the GoPro on the boat and use shots from a HD video on your phone or photos from a normal camera for the scene setting shots?
Trevor

Yes I would have thought that most software would allow you to do that

Hi Trevor,
Yes, I suspect that may well be possible, the only possible issue being if they are at different resolutions. I will try it when I can

More Video

All,

Firstly, many apologies for the quality of the
  1. camera work
  2. camera placement
  3. editing
  4. picture quality/focus
  5. etc.


This was my first time out with the camera and to say I was disapointed with the picture quality is an understatment. I have sent a short clip to the camera supplier who agrees it is definately faulty and a replacement has been arranged.

The video is about 3:40min cut down from about 40 minutes. If these are the 'best bits' you can guess what the rest was like!

Some reasonable (if blurry) pictures of Avoct and Longjohn buried in there.

I would say enjoy, but somehow feel that is unlikely.

Oscar.

Hi John,

Sorry the pictures of your endeavours haven't come out that well!

I dont want to start a flame on here about a faulty camera. The suppliers have been very responsive and are happy to replace it. If the next one is as bad then I will let you know.
