Latest obliviot video

I tend to release these occasionally as the helmet cam footage piles up. Here's the latest.

Obliviots And Oddities 6 Apr 2012 - YouTube!

Probably best watched on the actual YouTube page.

Hey CB, is that the ContourHD I sold ya? Also, what codec are you using to compress it with? Looks like there's too much compression (video degraded) even watching it at 720p in YT.

Might that not be because most of it is shot at night? My HD Hero is terrible in low light.

It's that ContourHD in 720. I'm still messing around with its exposure and contrast settings to get it workable. Unfortunately the artifacting you're seeing the the best I could do with post-processing to make the video usable.

Windows Video Maker is what I used to do the edits (on Windows 7). You can also get AnyVideoConverter online for free to change the codec to a more common file. Make sure when you do video conversions that you got the bitrate to where it should be. If I remember correctly, 1080P should be around 18MB/s and 720P is somewhere 12MB/s. <- these settings are on your editing software

On the camera I had the brightness setting in the mid to high 30s for night shots. The less darkness you have in the shot, the less demand the video will have for more bitrate = less pixelation. Make sure the bitrate on the camera is set to the highest setting, if you haven't changed it, it should already be set to high.

That's what I miss going to Go-Pro from Contour, the ability to change settings on audio, video, and bit-rate. Also, use a baby sock (wool if you can find one) over the unit to fix the wind issues.

Why didn't you just put the food in your tank bag?

Tank bag was full. I was coming back from a cargo pickup run.

Also, I should point out that unlike taco-spill-guy from earlier, the food is double-bagged and it's only a 2 block hop. Plus if needed, I've got no problem dropping the bag for 'safety of flight' reasons.

Well, if I hadn't intended it, I would have stopped at Sonic next to it instead.

I was hoping for a good roll-on test vs the R8.

Rule #2: Do not record yourself doing anything blatantly and wildly illegal on video.
Rule #3: If you must record yourself doing something blatantly and wildly illegal on video, don't be an idiot and post it to YouTube.

Not to derail but like I've mentioned on other threads, you can get a ContourROAM on Amazon now for $119 (since Roam2 is out, with the faster 60FPS for slo-mo shots).

Can I throw one in here? This was from 2 summers ago (I'm slow in editing).

You have to be careful making lane changes near intersections.
I think California forbids this (lane changes) within 300ft of the intersection. It is for situations just as you've noted.

Good to know - no such rule here, but then again, these blocks are probably not even 300 feet long, and I was barely doing 20 mph. This is a pretty busy section of this small town, so for her to not look was just driver error.

If I'd been riding Hooligan, it would have been an entirely different video for sure.
