    Couple of quick videos:




    Need to replace my lens after it fell off my brother's car on our last roadtrip. Will try to find that video too

    Question: what are you guys using to keep wind noise down on your videos? Any suggestions? I like the video quality of the GoPro but not the audio quality as much, but I have a feeling I could be doing something different to help that.

    I only have short and/or crappy vids.. lol

    Testing placement for view/intake noise



    More placement... needed a sturdier mount than an S2K fender (or a less bumpy track!) 1:40 for a little sideways action



    Tow motor burnout at my last job:



    Big snowy drifts (I'm the chase car) at night (this is a Gen 1 Gopro)



    Mounted on ex's Ducati, I'm in the rear on my CBR...kinda boring vid but unique perspective:

    I've been tempted to get one of these little guys. My only fear is the audio quality of the camera. I've seen some good clips with good audio, but majority are poor.

    If you are even attempting to look at the GoPro for any sort of audio capturing, you are looking at it for COMPLETELY the wrong reasons. The Waterproof casing completely seals the camera in (including any crappy microphone it has in it). It does come with a secondary case back that allows sound to get in but the GoPro still has a crappy microphone and the audio is not worth using.

    My boring GoPro videos:

    Houston Miata Club all-night cruise along the coast


    Low-cost boom test #1


    Low-cost boom test #2


    Low-cost suction mount highway test


    Low-cost suction mount bumpy test


    Cruising some country roads

    (Living next to the Gulf Coast sucks. Everything is flat and straight, so you have to drive 2 hours NW just for something that even remotely resembles curvy roads. I can't wait to get back to Appalachia!)

    I need more free time so I can finish some projects on the car and get out with the camera for some more pleasure-driving again.

    Awesome idea of using the bodywork suction cups for a boom! I think i might have to try that. Do you think the single 4.5" suction cups would work or would it need to be the 3-in-1 suction cup? Any pics of the setup and how you mounted everything together? Rep'd!
