As I am biking: i am enjoying the scenery, I did not think that the el cheapo mic pick my voice up that close. I wonder if a cel mic can work LOL. the whine is of the mic, not the cam and worked fine before. first time testing on the Zi8.
As you see the parachute Jump, I am usng the only time a boomstick, home made. ifyou seewobble it is of the boomstick it acts like a absorber oppsite to a bump, the rattle is of the monopodstick. as the cam shows a excellent steady ride, in my eyes. I do see some issues with it playing on the video player. I went back to the TV playback and seems better.
