I recently picked up a few new mounting options for my GoPro Hero HD camera. Specifically, I picked up a Suction Cup Mount and a Chest Harness Mount. I finally got motivated and headed out to capture some new footage on the Enertia.
I was really surprised with how sturdy the suction cup mount is, that is once I figured out that you need to flip up the lever. It will hold to just about any smooth surface, so with enough painted surfaces the suction cup mount proved to be a very versatile mount. What the chest harness lacked in versatility, it made up for with it's ideal positioning. Mounting the camera to the chest shows plenty of the motorcycle to give a really good idea of how much the rider is moving, while giving a great sense of speed and lean angle. I was really impressed.
Anyhow, here's the video. The track is by The XX.
I've recounted to friends numerous times about one of the Web's most brilliant sites: justatip.com. It provided a service where you could provide an anonymous message for someone, and the site would send it to them in an email. Unfortunately it didn't last long and has been defunct for years.
Well look what showed up on digg.com today. CareerBuilder is offering a similar service. Enjoy.
