JP, are you taking your videos with your phone now? Or are you using a video cam?

I've been using my iphone. I've been disappointed with the Cannon. Really need one with HD. Emil said his brother got a Go Phone I believe he called it that was pretty good but needs an external mic. Gonna be looking into it.

They all look professional now with the phone. Sounds like a waste of time for me to look for a new video camera. Was there one HD cam that you were interested in?

Have you considered the GoPro cameras?

Hey Kingfish, the GO camera looks like the ticket. I'll check them out.  http://gopro.com/products/

Several people we ride with use the gopro cams with head straps.   A little shaky sometimes, but being water proof, mud proof, and shock proof, they work out real nice.

Allen, gopro cams are not that bad on price. They have two models. I assume they come with a tripod mount, as my hands are always full of bees.

That actually looks like a pretty good camera. The first cut out I did, I had my iPod, my wifes iPod, and a camera and all three batteries died untimely and left me with nothing. Thats what I get for having daughters that like technology I guess. But the GoPro looks pretty nice.

Is Emil still planning to come to Bud4?

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Head strap.   Strap it to your head so everyone sees what you see.   It gets shaky at times, but there is software for that.
