No wind makes for a pretty boring yacht race, so I used the time on the water to test out what the GoPro could do.

All the footage was shot 720p @ 60 and conformed to 25p in Cinema Tools. The camera will also do 1080p which obviously looks even better but is restricted to 30f.

I had it mounted on the end of a telescopic paint roller handle from Bunnings which was a bit too flexible but considering a lot of the footage (underwater and above) was shot while traveling at speed, it did pretty well.

NOTE: A fair bit of image quality was lost during compression because of Vimeo's 500mb upload limit.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
