JawsFlexClamp.jpgHave been eyeballing the GoPro mount, Jaws: Flex Clamp for a long time now.  First read about it back in November 2013.  Have thought about buying one ever since.  The only thing was I have got away from making videos.  Really do enjoy making and editing them.  Received a little bit of money for my birthday day so I went out and bought one.  While I have not used it yet.  Plan to give it a go on my next days off.  Have two days off together.  The plan is to put together a test video using it on my motorcycle.  So check back every now again.  Will be posting that video.

GoPro Jaws: Flex Clamp

JawsFlexClampThere is a cool new GoPro mount out.  It is called Jaws: Flex Clamp.  It is most versatile one yet.  As you might guess from the name.  It has a very strong clamp that can clamp on to anything from .25” to 2” (.6cm to 5cm).  The flex part comes from the flexible neck.  So you can twist and move that so you can get all kinds of cool angles.  Being new I wasn’t sure if it would work with my older GoPro.  I own a Hero 960.  Looked into it and it works with all GoPro models not just the Hero 3.  The GoPro website is sell it for $50 US money.  Going to looking around and see if I can find one in Canadian money.  Looked on the Futureshop website, but they don’t have it yet.  You can see it in action > here or below.

GoProStudio.jpgThere is a cool contest that GoPro is putting on.  It runs from September 13 to 25, 2013.  The big prize is a Mac book Pro and a GoPro Hero 3 with all kinds of attachments.  The runners up get the Hero 3 with all the cool attachments.  The idea of the contest is to use their new GoPro Studio 2.0 software with one of their all really made edit templates.  Have made one you can see that below or > here.  The Studio software is very impressive easy to use yet all so very powerful.   Made this video in about 15 minutes with out ever seen this software before.  Think I will be using it again when I make another video.  If you are interested you can see all about the contest > here.

GoPro Studio

GoProStudioHave not talk about GoPro Hero cameras in a long time.  The other day found out they have their own video editing software.  It is called GoPro Studio 2.0.  It looks very powerful.  It looks all most like Adobe Premiere Elements.  If you check out the video on how to use the software > here or below.  They have made it very easy for any user but all so for people that know that they are doing to use.  The best part is it is free.  Going to download it and give it a try.  I watched the video and it talks about the the converting the video files.  These caught my eye.  When I edit my GoPro videos, all ways had to convert them so it was easier to edit which takes up a lot of time.  The video ends up loosing some of the quality.  This GoPro Studio has it own converting process.  Think it will be better since it GoPro software.  Going to give this a try.  Will be back with an update on how it is.

GoPro Hero3

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , on October 17, 2012 by getbent57

GoPro-Hero-3 There is a new GoPro Hero camera coming out in November 2012.  Well there are three new version which are called Hero3.  They have (cheapest to most expensive) White Edition $200,  Sliver Edition $300 and the Black Edition $400.  Being new they are improved.  Smaller in size and more powerful.  All three have built in Wi-Fi.  So you can use a remote or you smartphone with an app to control it.  The big news here is the Black Edition and the power if packs.  Which is insane.  It can shoot at a resolution of 4Kp.  Then all the way down to 720p at 120 fps.  It can even burst shoot pictures at 30 fps.  All this is pretty sweet.  Check out the video below. It was all shot with the Hero3 cameras.

Well finished that video I was talking about a few post ago.  The one were my brother is riding my 2006 Yamaha XT225.  It was filmed using a GoPro 960.  Must say it turned out pretty good.  Let my brother pick out the song.  Found it on Sound Cloud here.  The song is called Metallica vs Black Sabbath – Disposable War Pigs (Dubstep mashup).  Check the video out below.  Leave a comment if you wish.

Working on a new video.  Hope to have it finished soon and uploaded.  This is another motorcycle video using my Yamaha XT225 and a GoPro.  But this time around it is my brother riding around.  Think here are two clips were I am doing the riding.  Going to say it is turning out not too bad for something was wasn’t planed.  Right now I need to find a good song.  Then do some small tweaks and it will be good to go.  So back every now and again because it will be done some thing this week.

Have set up a new page on this blog called The Project.  Click that link or the link the right side under the Pages section.  A quick run down, The Project is a time lapse video I am working on.  Set up the page to share pictures from every time I set I shoot.  Then the final video when it is done.  Trying to make this the biggest video project I have tried.  So far I have two days of shooting done.  Plan to shoot every day on my days off for the next month or so.  So check back often to see new pictures and then the finale project.

Last night while trying to fall asleep and failing as usual.  Got thinking I need to get back into making video projects been months since I made one.  I enjoy making them.  Weather they are bad or not its no big deal still fun.  Got up and charged up the battery in my GoPro.  Decided I am going to make another time lapse video.  Going to make this one more grand in scale.  The plan so far is to shoot in many different places over a longer time.  Lets say for the next month or so on my days off I’ll head out to a different spot round where I live.  Set up the camera for a few hours and see what I get.  Have a few ideas in my head how I want to edit it as well.  All so thinking I should make the sound track as well.  Then truly be my project.

All so have a different project floating around in my head.  Was watching some Top Gear.  The all ways do some cool things with filming and editing.  There is one thing I think I can pull off.  Want to try it will my motorcycle.  It is still winter so I am going try a small scale first.  Then when the weather gets warmer try it my motorcycle.  If that works out as so hope it does.  Plan to turn that into a bigger project with more bikes and cars.

Lapse Of The Sun

The last few posts I made have been talking about a making a time-lapse video.  Well it is now done and uploaded.  Like before have uploaded it to YouTube and Vimeo.

This is my first real attempt to make a time-lapse video. Spent the last few days filming the sun from different angles. Using my GoPro 960 to take the pictures. Made the sound track myself as well. The opening title was made using After Effects with the help of tutorials on Video Copilot.net.
