Just before Christmas, I got hold of a new bike cam. It’s a GoPro HD Hero black edition, which has some pretty nifty features, including less distortion from the lens and better performance in low light. I’ve been using it ever since I got it, but the weather and dull commutes haven’t been conducive to decent ride videos.
Thankfully, the snow has arrived. Despite some difficulty with snow covering the lens and condensation, here’s the first snowy bike cam: Tyseley Station to Birmingham New Street.
The music is ‘The Slow Train’ by Lemon Jelly, featuring an inspired sample of The King Singers.
I loved every minute.
For best results, click on the little cog symbol in the bottom right hand corner of the video, select the highest resolution the video will run at on your connection, then click the little square symbol, near to the cog on the right. That’ll display the film full screen. to finish, hit ‘esc’ on your keyboard.
Hopefully, more to come soon.
