    Default Sailing Video | Shot with GoPro hero 2

    Hey guys


    I've just returned from a Canadian summer camp where I ran the sail program for kids. I shot some footage over the two months and made this video.


    Let me know what you think

    Thanks for posting the clip.
    I liked the demo of how well the cam's waterproofing qualities. I liked the 'under the boat' shots.
    In some scenes, the water often appeared look jerky. Is this something to do with the camera's framerate. Or perhaps it is just my eyes.
    I was surprised to see the out of focus people around 02:19. I had assumed the lens was so wide, and had so much light, that almost everything it shot would be in focus.
    Lots of pretty scenes; but I may have preferred them to have been edited in a different order.

    Very nice footage. Sometimes you cut people's heads and don't give enough room in the direction the boats travel. Nevertheless nice video implying quite some fun.

    It's not a masterpiece but that's not it's purpose. I liked that you got a good variety of shots. Which of these shots were taken with the D800 ?

    Looks like you all had great fun.

    Funny stuff Tim.

    I thought it was pretty good. Nice flow, variety of shots, fitting soundtrack.

    Thoroughly enjoyed it. Perfect music. Only 5 secs too long IMO (ie, I decided I'd had enough 5 secs before the closing titles)

    Thanks for watching guys

    Can you tell which shots on done with the D800?

    They're generally the shots with a small amount of shallow focus. Everything shot on the gopro is deep focus and I personally think the gopro is actually a crisper image. I may upset some people with that though.

    The D800 takes some getting use to.
