1. Mountain Biking the Colorado Trail

    In early August Dan introduced me to the Colorado Trail outside of Breckenridge. It is an awesome ride for high speed single track with a grueling climb that leads you to views of Keystone Ski Resort and ends with one of the longest downhills that I've done. Since I'm still new to my Pivot Mach 5 and the trail I took it relatively easy...you can see Dan speeding away in the distance. I absolutely love my new Pivot Mach 5. I haven't really had the time to dial in the suspension but it is just so smooth. Technical Notes - I shot this with the VIO POV.HD at 1080p, 30 fps, however, I had to reduce the resolution (H.264 compression) and size (to 1280x720) in FCE to get it to a reasonable 2 gig size. I had the POV running with noise reduction and sharpening on and the exposure set to -1. This upload has nowhere near the clarity of the original. Still figuring out the POV...tried several clips at 720p/60fps but I didn't get any usable footage.

        First experiment with the new VIO POV HD camera. This thing appears rock-solid, is a lot less visible once mounted and is really easy to use. Once set up correctly I think it is also a bit more crisp than the GoPro as far as video quality, especially in the sun. In this example I simply zip tied the unit to the top tube of the Cannondale and used one of the mounts on the handle bars. A couple of things to keep in mind is the exposure settings. The camera seems to auto adjust in low light and has a tendency to get blown out if not set right. The shot in the first half going down gravel road at from the 1:14 minute mark is an a good example. In the shade I mostly stayed in the -2 exposure setting which while not perfect is pretty good but a little less clear. Also all footage from the Commander 1000XT was done using 2 GoPro HD Heros’ using the suction mounts front and back. On the bike I hit roughly 35mph on some of the downhills yet had to watch out for some cobbles which measured 2-6” on the lower half of the trail. Almost the entire thing was color corrected to get more “natural” look. No stabilization was used so I apologize for the choppiness, although it isn’t too bad under these rough conditions. I will admit I slowed at the stationary camera because I didn’t want to wipe out on film : ) Will try to get a side by side test of the GoPro and the POV HD in the coming weeks. Brief timelapse of the clouds and the still shots done using the Panasonic GH2 with an 8mm fisheye lens. All POV cameras were set at 1080P at 30fps.

          I shot these images in the Portes du Soleil and Chamonix in France. These places are now my home and I feel very lucky. My aim with this video is to showcase my filming and editing skills and the area I live in both winter and summer. I use this footage for various projects for my 2 videography businesses … www.reelfunmedia.com www.reelproperty.tv Contact: stewartmonk@me.com Music: www.cinematicorchestra.com - To build a home Shot on Pansonic: HMC 151E + V.I.O.

              I've been working with V.I.O products for over 3 years now. The introduction of the new HD unit has been long awaited and defiantly worth the wait. It's still as rugged, flexible and easy to use as before but with so many more advantages. As a video editor the new formats are great to work with in various editing software's. The picture quality is amazing and has a super-wide field of view when shooting in 1080p HD. It's reliable in extreme temperatures, has taken a few beatings and has out performed any other POV camera I've used in the past. A big thanks to everyone that's helped ... Here are a few highlight shots from winter 2011. www.reelfunmedia.com

                Second test clip of my POV HD, this time in shaded woodland. The video taken used the settings 720p @ 30fps in PAL and "high" picture quality mode (the middle setting). All other settings were defaults.

                  First test of my POV HD on the Feldberg mountain near Frankfurt, Germany (still getting snow in March!). The video taken used the settings 720p @ 30fps in PAL and "high" picture quality mode. All other settings were defaults. The lens was mounted to my helmet using the rail mount. The 11 minute clip weighs in at 1030MB! This video is a direct upload of the raw footage. It was not edited, hence no soundtrack apart from some very loud wind noise as I haven't covered the mic yet. Mic volume was set to level 4 so maybe I should reduce it. I think the picture is great, colours are very vivid and the brightness in dark areas such as going through woodland is much better than the old non-HD unit. There is no tearing or bending of the picture and no fish bowl effect despite the wide angle lens. Most vibration in the video is caused by my helmet being a bit loose.

                    Received the all new VIO POV HD today and took it for a quick spin. Found at 60fps, 720p, with a Class 6 SD card playing on computer screen the footage was having trouble keeping up. Once downloaded to the computer, the footage looked a lot smoother. We also found at 1080p @ 30fps, the footage was similar. Then, at 720p @ 30fps, it smoothed out a fair bit. Using a Class 10 SD card on all the above settings appears to achieve a much better result ie a smooth picture. Apparently, there is a new firmware update in the making. We'll keep you posted on our website We will get a more detailed camera test very soon...
