what type of video camera you using dan?quality very low which is half the issue.
tilt the camera up a bit , and remember to keep your head movements "fluid" (slow and smooth).
basically when following riders try to keep them in the screen shot, this takes a few runs to get used to (depending on your riding style) but like everything it takes a bit of practise to get it correct. :thumbsup:

heh Pete yeah the quality is low due to the compression, the first version that i wrote off came out at 932MB, dont think Tama will be keen on that hahaha, so i compressed it down to 35Mb hence the low quality, i got the framerate at 25fps but the screen size is smaller....bit of a comprimise really.. the head thing yeah need to keep my eye on the person in front more and be smooth, i had figured that much from watching, and the camera up its touch and go but hopefully the next time i will get it about right and trying to stay back on tunas tail is hard as hell..... hahahaahaha



countdown on form :p :thumbsup:

went for a ride on the chute today 1st run rode it like a pussy 2nd run i pined it :satan: carried my speed arround the burm nice got the hip and the and the little jump sweet and then it was time 2 slow down for the last burm and you know the thing called traction between the tires and the ground well there was none i got off the brakes and i was back in control but going way to fast to make the turn so i went strait over it but i didnt have time to get ready for a jump and my weight was to far forward so i did an endo landed hard on the front i went straight over the bars and into the the prickels thank god i didnt land on all the gorse stumps there. I then went for a ride down tuna braked crashed then tried a run down rezzy braked crashed. what lesson did i learn today you cant ride on the hacki in the wet :hmmm: or dont brake anyway or you will die :lol:

Vid from yesterday , its only off the phone so quality is down but it was on the spot idea, one day we will have all the scrub cleared so you will be able to see more of the track and rider but you get the general idea..

yeah , prob a puddle bout 2-300mm deep and about 1m wide to 2.5 long, came across it onm my first run then told Myles to film me, so i had a run at it got to the bottom and he said he had no space on camera.. lol so i grabbed mine and we went back up so i got to hit it twice, got slowed up loads thou but it created a mean run :D, so it wasnt a big suprise....hahaha and the drop into Roller Coaster was mint hit it pretty fast landed well but was preety far over due to the speed and ended up back braking to get back on track , gutted cause the jump would have been huge :hmmm: oh well
