I bought a GoPro helmet camera this summer right before a beach trip. I shot about 5 hours of footage over that weekend. I went to go edit and found the footage wasn't compatible with my editing system. I shelved the camera until I had time to figure it out. Months later, (with some help) I think I solved the problem. Now I just need to figure out "MOTION" the graphics package for Final Cut. I struggled through it just to make this simple title...I think I need some online classes. So I will be playing with a lot of video and graphics over the next couple of months on my blog. You will get to know Maddy real well.
This video is a typical day for me and Maddy, groundwork, flatwork, and hitting the trails. One thing I like about watching the video from her back, I see how much her ears swivel all around. For some reason, the blogger upload cut off about 1/3 of the screen, but YouTube looks much better.
If you like the look of the video, GoPro are only about $225 for a HD cam. It really is awesome. I think it is perfect for riders. On this day I used the helmet mount, but I also have a "Chesty" (a chest mount) that may work better because you will see more of the horse.
Time to Did Out The Hats and Gloves...
