Yesterday I played with my new Sony camera with nice snowy weather - finally! (this is probably not an opinion of an "off road" driver in first part). Sadly Youtube doesn't support progressive 50 fps videos so quality isn't nearly as good as on my computer. Still excellent high sensitivity makes night videos finally useful (watch in full screen).



Anyone knows video sharing site, which supports videos with more than 30 full frames per second?

Thank you - yes, I would like to have good holder (and cheap), but it must firmly hold about 600 grams. I doubt Gorillapod on the rear mirror would be as good as it was with my previous camera until I lost it.

When I considered file size and bit rate involved in 1080p50 quality I realized that there's no video sharing site, that would support that. Above file from Windows Live Maker is almost 600 MB big - for only 4 minutes.

For those who are interested how a night driving video looks like in full HD resolution at 50 fps I've put one original MTS file from night driving (part six from above) onto my Dropbox account for few weeks - beware, it has 270 MB (1:24 min):

How about this one:

I have the same one, but this isn't my pic, it's from Daviedoff (who is also on SCC btw). You don't have to attach it to the dashboard, it works perfectly just stuck to the window. It can hold up to 1,8 kilo (my cam is 200 grams btw, so I don't need that much weight, but still) Awesome thing. It's a Delkin Fat Gecko Mini. It says here you can get it for $29,99, which is €34,99, but I got it for €27,99, so be sure to check if you can get a cheaper one! You can switf your camera in practically every position.

I quickly made a few pics:
NOTE: I have a filming camera, not a picture camera, the quality in the dark is just poor


(Yes the KitKat was nice )

Don't you get problems with reflection of the suction mount into the window? My camera films besides the mount, so I don't get any reflection of it on screen.

Mine is slightly turned so it films just past the reflection of the suction mount and the top part of the suction mount itself But it just fell on the floor (luckily it's my old camera on that) so it's now straightened. Next time I put it in the car I'll be busy for 2 mins trying to find the right position again

HINT: When you have the right position for your camera, keep the tripod in that exact position, even when it's laying inside your house!

Yep
Do you by any chance have the same camera too? Everio GZ-HD520 (old: Everio GZ-HM330). That'd be a real coïncidence :p

Those Americans are really weird: they drive on a parkway but park on a driveway.

$29,99 is not €34,99 but € 22,79.


I just recorded my first driving video with my (photo)camera, a Canon EOS 1100D, and a Gorillapod attached to the rear screen. Since I'm not planning to do many driving videos I think it is sufficient, but there are indeed a lot of vibrations I had to smooth in post-production: a heavy driving video user is not recommended to do that.
