Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride slideshow/video is hot off the press and can be found further down the page.
To learn a little more about our ride, check out my earlier DGR write-up.
For those of you who like to read about this sort of thing. . . .
This was the first time I used my new GoPro Hero 3+ Black, and I must say I’m impressed. Making the jump from a Hero 2 is quite a leap! The second video clip shown facing backwards was done with the Hero 2; everything else was with the Hero 3+. The Hero 2 does okay, but the Hero 3+ is much better.
I tried to use both cameras with one Wi-Fi remote. It worked the night before, but not on this day. While I don’t know what the problem was, in the future I’ll use two remotes.
Hard-mounting the GoPro to the handlebars is a vibrating mess, and my body seems to be the best shock absorber. I’ve found that it helps to pull my shoulders up a little when the cameras are running. I’m still experimenting with image stabilization software, but have yet to find the perfect solution.
As shown in the following picture, I put both cameras on my helmet facing in opposite directions, and it seemed to work well. Of course, when I put the helmet on, the cameras will be at the correct angle.
Here is my slideshow/video from our DGR breakfast gathering and short ride through Austin.
Peace on the Road!
