haha yep I'm a mega convert.. time to eat humble pie :oops:

I much prefer the results i've got from the wrist housing so far though. I found after a couple of waves a wipeout knocked the camera and the rest of the session i got great footage of my toe hair and not much else!

Yes, I crank mine on with a screwdriver so its fully tilted back, still ends up facing the deck occasionally, just push it back into position.
Nice pic btw.

I can judge more or less the optimum angle for mine and check and readjust it if necessary. Just slip a small plastic protractor up your sleeve! :wink:

Had another attempt on sunday.. seem to have missed the board this time but getting there!! :oops: sure i'll post somne egotistica frame grabs later :lol:

Its so much more reliable using it on the on board option, but it makes the waves look so small and flat, think that it probably needs to be at least 5ft and with good shape before it looked decent!

An interesting perspective on a little pocket carve/snap:

Did you get a helmet mount in the pack? Its the one that's like the board mount but a bit higher, doesn't need the little white plug bit in the clip, it's a couple of inches higher than the normal board mount and helps reduce the "tilted" perspective that makes the waves look smaller than they really are!

The trade off is that it's harder to get all of the surfer in the shot, can counter that by making sure you are on 4:3 aspect ratio though!

Nah didnt get one of those but its a good idea! Mind you I've just had it on the wide angle setting as I figured that was best, i'll play around with different settings next time!

looks like an odd bit if diffraction in that last shot, was there water on the lens?

Cool though.

No, I think its just cos its a frame grab off the 30fps video so the movement isnt quite captured maybe?

I think it could be the player interpolating the frames to try make a smoother video. On mine I don't remember seeing it with VLC player but noticed it with UMplayer. There may be a setting to turn it on/off.

A moody one from the weirdly grey day that was today. I'm only 53 but the body is complaining like hell! Not sure how much longer I'll survive as the popup is currently a disaster, very frustrating.
