First off, I know this was a DH event but I was quite surprised to find there was STORM TROOPERS racing aswell as normal Kent folk  :o

This guy was unbelievably quick and looked like this the whole way down, clearly nuts, but I think he was genuinely terrified...

Plays fine for me, if a little slow to load (but thats pinkbike)

What camera is that? - looks very clear and vibrant.

Perhaps mounting a little higher would yield better results to see ahead more.

Good quality though.

unwatchable for me as its on Pinkbike. If you could upload it to that place Russ uses it would be great. Its a ContourHD to answer bmjboys question, new HD version of my vholdr and does look very crisp. I was going over the lump after the sand turn near the start then taking the right hand line up that next little jump but thats cause it was more fun and not being timed heh, going to sit here for 30mins now to let it fully stream so I can replay the horror in my head of the jump I crashed on Sad

We were using the start ramp yesterday (wasnt allowed in the race) so that first tabletop was hit QUICK. I was braking as no skill although still "largin it" for me but my friend was clearing it. The jump 57secs in is where I went down. Looked violent on your video with skill, fact it went to a slight up ramp on landing wasnt best!

Camera looks like a massive improvement on mine as far clearler and vibrant with very impressive speed going from light to dark. If I go into the wood it goes grainy really quickly! Mounting mine firmly was what took me time as I always thought it had bad camera shake but when solidly mounted on the bike it was rock solid, yours looks good however you had it mounted.

That looks fantastic for Pinkbike. Is that actually displayed in HD? If not upload it to You Tube in HD and it will look even better. It's impossible to give an opinion on the camera's picture quality from Pinkbike as the compression is ridiculous. Is it possible for you to e-mail the raw file, as i am considering getting a camera myself hopefully in time for when we go ski-ing in January.

uploaded it to vimeo and it said "there is a problem converting this video please review our compression guidelines" any ideas? it was filmed in SD mode not HD, SD mode is 60 frames per second and HD mode is 30 frames.

Even more impressive if you only filmed in SD! Not sure why it wont upload, possibly because its 60fps. Just done a quick google and vimeo might not be best for you as the Contour captures HD at 30fps whereas Vimeo only show it at 24fps. If you upload a 30fps HD video to them, they convert it to SD 30fps and also their own HD at 24fps and it ends up not being very smooth at all. If you were to use windows movie maker for example which takes 30fps down to 25fps that goes mega jerky.

I think you will need to experiment a bit. Try uploading the 60fps footage you have to Youtube and also do some recordings in HD 30fps as I believe Youtube will show that at 30fps, certainly mine are smooth, may not be quite as good as Vimeo but should still be great.

Then you could try downloading VirtualDub and in there you can change the frame rate of videos so you could experiment with that dropping a 30fps HD one to 24fps for Vimeo http://www.doom9.org/index.html?/virtual...edures.htm
