I do not have the DIVE HOUSING and the video underwater looks fine to me because I am never down far at all anyway and their is still plenty of light.

The reason I mentioned it is because the official GoPro website states that the DIVE HOUSING not only is more rugged but also has a full flat glass lens cover that supposedly will pass light better at depth. But just from personal playing around the color looks fine to me with the basic package.

Re: Video While Sailing?

I bought one and installed it on my sailboat and was unhappy with the results because the camera leaned with the boat. I then made a home-made "gimbal" to hang the camera off the bow rail and it gave an entirely different perspective. I haven't taken a picture of the gimbal, but here is a video with the camera able to remain mostly horizontal during the sail:


It's a little more shaky, but I think it provides a more realistic representation of the experience.

Fair winds and blue skies,

Scott

Re: Video While Sailing?

Here is a picture of the gimbal I rigged up for my GoPro. I put a fishing weight on it to keep it horizontal and slow the movement down. It's not very fancy but it works.

Re: Video While Sailing?

What Software do you use for editing your GoPro Videos?

Re: Video While Sailing?

I have a GoPro Hero II and like it a lot (because I don't have to worry about it in humid conditions). I use Windows Live Movie Maker for editing (because it's free). You'll soon be producing some high-quality and interesting videos, especially if you're editing-out 80% of what the camera records. I like the gimbal idea - 'will have to rig one of those. See YouTube and Vimeo for endless 'how-to' instruction for either camera or software.

I wanted to wireless function, where I could start and stop the camera from my iPad since I hope eventually to clamp it on the bow when it's so rough nobody should be on deck if it can be avoided. Last August the claimed wireless connection on GoPro didn't work at all. Perhaps they fixed it.

I got the Ion Air Pro. It worked where the GoPro didn't. GoPro is the clear leader in the business, but 6 months ago they claimed features that were not working at that time.

Posted video is a 3 part series, starting here:

I purchased a damped gimbaled mount at Strictly Sail about a week ago. Maybe more videos next year.

Re: Video While Sailing?

There are several different HEROs. For the price they are amazing cameras, but the original HERO had a menu/interface that would make you crazy. The HERO 2 is great, and the lcd back is pretty inexpensive. The wifi back lets you see and control it from an iPhone, iPad or laptop. I've not used the HERO 3 but it looks much better than the 2.
It is an expensive toy, or if you look at it *correctly*, a very inexpensive well made tool.

Video While Sailing?

This is an old thread that I hijacked. Just want to emphasize I am just asking about Video editing software for the GoPro.

Re: Video While Sailing?

missed that transition to editing. I've used the imovie app on my iphone or iPad while on the boat. On the computer you can edit in quicktime too.
I use final cut at home and work but it is usually overkill for short sailing videos
