I used my Dremel to cut the center piece out of one of my GoPro mounting pieces. Going to test it tomorrow after my GoPro charges up. The only problem is that I only have one suction cup mount so I can't mount the camera AND the mic at the same time...

While researching mounting options I came across this: Cobalt Cage for GoPro cams. Nice bit of kit if you're ready to step up to "professional grade" mounting options.



I finally have everything squared away and I think I've come up with a good idea for the mounting of all the equipment. Unfortunately it's starting to rain here so no test footage yet.

Great Success! The mic and windcutter performed just like I had hoped (Thanks Rick!). As soon as YouTube processes the first video I'll post a link. Now I just need to work with the camera settings and CineformStudio.

CSO - Camera Shop Online ?

Nice video Gabe.


When I was at the Essen Motor Show... I saw this little camera - CSO. I never heard of them before. It was very small. Just slightly larger than our bmw key fob. And it was cheap to at 80 euros. Does anyone know about these little cams?

Btw... if anyone does in fact want to buy one of these cameras... they are giving 5% off, just use CSO1X3T4 code. I really can not vouch for this camera - just saw it at the Messe and thought it looked interesting.

Thanks for sharing! Would love to see some more shots of that mount.

Did you shoot 1080p Wide, Medium or Narrow?

Cameras mounted inside the car are allowed this season.

I recorded my second lap but I'm having trouble rendering the clip. The GoPro split it into to files and I can't seem to get Windows Movie Maker to join them. At first I tried to keep it 1080p/60fps but the program would bomb out at 67%. I rendered them at 720p/60fps with medium quality sound and the program locks up at 98%.
I'm now going to try 720/30fps with medium quality sound. If that doesn't work I'm going to export them to my Mac and try again with Movie Maker, but my Mac is considerably slower than my PC. We shall see...

It's the only program I have, worked fine for me till this. Not sure why the GoPro decided to cut my clip in two in the first place.

Did they tell you that up there? I was surprised that you guys had pulled up to the gates with the cameras mounted.

Rick asked when he purchased the lap card, they gave the OK. The gate workers didn't say anything about the cameras or that we were sharing a card.

We should combine forces for a shoot sometime. I have a GoPro black and a mic, you have a GoPro black and experience.

You have a GoPro? That's cool.
You bought 2 GoPros and are shooting 3D video? How nice.

How about a 32 camera GoPro array!
