Evening All.

Thought I'd share a couple of videos taken on my Surf Hero this week.

The outcome was better than expected except later in the week the casing started to mist up and clouded all the footage. I have seen a few people on here have had the same thing happen to them and wondered if anyone had a solution to prevent it from happening? The case was completely dry when I opened up the casing. Any ideas would be gratefully received.

Cheers

might be worth keeping the camera and casing open in a box with a load of rice when you're not using it. the change of temperature from cold sea water to hot car and house could cause a small amount of condensation. keeping it in a box with some rice will draw any moisture out ready for the next outing.



hope it works, the footage looks pretty lush on those sunny days!

Thanks for the advice! I'll give it a shot and keep my fingers crossed it doesn't mist up on the next surf trip!

Nice vid. Pity there's no footage of you decking the guy on the SUP :lol:

Slightly more hitec is some small bags of silica gel to absorb moisture. Load the camera with card and batteries in a warm dry place, and don't open it after that.

yeah i've got a few of those hanging around in my camera bag and laptop bag. rice doesn't seem right in there, but it is easier to get hold of!

:lol: I have to say the guy on the SUP was a class act! Based on how he rode it, I reckon he's one heck of a longboarder!

As for the bag of silica gel notion, I'm not sure you could get one small enough to fit in the casing?

Fair dos if he knows his business. I meant when you are not using it. Not much room in there for anything.

If you can, before you go in the water with the camera, keep it in a bucket of water that is roughly sea temp.

When I dive, if I take a camera, on the boat out to the dive site I just grab a bucket of sea water and leave it in that for the duration of the boat ride. usually does the trick. Plus the silca packets

Forgot to say, on tuesday mine fogged up a bit, but it didn't seem to be that bad when the lens was kept facing away from the sun, and if i leant forward to dunk the camera underwater as much as possible the fogging definitely lessened.

Bloody hell, that must have been the longest wave of the session! Shame you weren't about on Wednesday night, Aberdeen was fricken firing although I reckon the Go Pro would have gotten lost at sea!

I was around, just stripping wallpaper. In hindsight it was probably the better day, but didn't have enough brownie points for both.

Some great stuff there tootes, glad the suction mount is getting used. the aerobatics look well scary.

Not Gopro, but here is a clip a friend of mine made of us doing tandem parapente jumps in France. I am under the yellow canopy. Good cure for post wedding hangover

Hey guys, how did you mount the FCS fitting to the front of your board? I'm a relative newbie to working with boards, I've repaired some dings but I've no idea how to go about installing an FCS to where there wasn't one previously.
Any input would be appreciated.
