    Yet another entertaining video! I really like the quality of your new camera, both the video and the audio!

    A Blackbird hanging on Blackbird St., imagine that!

    Great sign! Iíve actually been looking for an eno street sign or just a sign that says ďHammockĒ on it. Sweet find!

    Keep the vids coming...!
    Ow, thatís a sensitive subject, RedBeardHanger. At this stage, the Gopro 2 gets the thumbs down. Iíve already broken one of the indestructible mounts Ė just attaching the camera (VERY cheap plastic that also scratches easily). The LCD BacPac stopped working, just before I filmed the happy tree (as it turns out, Iím far from the first to have that happen). And as you may know, the sound quality is wowful! On a positive note, the ďdaytimeĒ picture quality is pretty good for a $300 camera and the on board stabilizer works well. Back to the negatives... the settings menu is TERRIBLE to navigate (no back button) and the buttons on the housing are hard to press, which makes going through the settings harder than it already is.

    Well, RedBeardHanger, I feel better now that Iíve had the chance to complain to someone (GoPro donít want to know)! As for the handlebar mount, Iíve got both the basic one that comes with the Outdoor Addition and Iíve also got the one that has the adjustments on it, but havenít used either of them yet. Havenít used the suction mount yet either (windsurfing). Oh and the wrist mount is a waste of money.

    Anyway...

    I hope all my complaining was helpful. Iím glad you liked the video, and the hunt is on for a sign that says hammock!

    Maybe one day weíll see heavy duty hammocks in all drunk hot spots. The ones in rich areas could have under quilts and chuck buckets. lol Youíre welcome for the show around, Bubba!

    Hello, Ferret! A while ago, in my quest to improve sound quality, I bought an Azden WMS Pro Wireless microphone System off the internet, which worked ok, but no ambient sound could be heard. I just bought myself an Olympus Digital Voice Recorder VN-8600 PC and used that and the mic that came with the WMS Pro to make this latest video. I had to get a mono to stereo adapter, because the WMS mic is a mono mic, and if plugged into the recorder as is, there would have only been left side/channel sound. This set up picks up a fair bit of ambient sound, but itís not quite right. I think I need one with a thinner foam wind buffer thingy for no wind recording. This set up is great for windy recording.

    Hello there BlazeAway! Thanks for posting a comment! I hope to see you hanging out in the snow while youíve got some. Youíve got the gear for it!

    Hi ho Hawk-eye! Hope youíre well and getting out in your hammock in-between all the work travelling you are or were doing! Yes, the GoPro has TERRIBLE sound quality! Unacceptably bad for this day and age. I bought an Olympus Digital Voice Recorder VN-8600 PC, just from a local shop. It can record in 192bps, 128bps and 48bps. I was using 128bps. Iíve since discovered that YouTube changes it to 44 bps, so I may as well use the 48bps setting. Unlike the camera, the voice recorder gets a thumbs up. It works and itís quick and easy to use. Thanks for posting a comment, Hawk-eye, I like to hear from you!

    Hi, FireInMyBones,

    The recording device is an Olympus Digital Voice Recorder VN-8600 PC and I plugged a EX-503 lapel microphone into it and clipped that to the inside of my shirt, about nipple height. Now, before you rush out and buy one, you should know that thereís a bit more messing around to be done, both out filming, and back in the editing room. You have to use the ďclapper boardĒ method to make it work. Thanks for posting, FireInMyBones, and Iím pleased to hear you enjoyed the video!

    Hello there Mad777!

    lol Yeah, I never thought of it quite like that... A Blackbird hanging on Blackbird St. Overall, Iím not too happy with the camera, but it does take a good video. The 170 degree field of view mode will be good for filming mountains. You may have noticed that Iíve been having some trouble with sound volume and sound being out of sync. The volume problem is mostly fixed, Iím still have problems with the sound going out of sync after it is uploaded to YouTube. Iím getting there though, thatís the main thing! Thanks for posting MAD777, itís always good to hear from you!

    Like one of these: ? Or do you just "clap" to start the video and sound?

    Thanks for the tip.

    Well what happened was, I thought you matched the sound from the camera with the sound of the voice recorder, so I went to a pet shop and bought a clicker, which is used to train dogs. I found that it was too fiddly to use that, the camera and the recorder at the same time, so it soon got the boot. I also found that it was hard to see the click sound on the time line in the video editor. I could see the sound recording ok, but no the video. A little more research and yes, I now just simply switch the camera and recorder on, then clap my hands together in front of the camera and about one or two feet away from both. While editing, I pause the video when my hands touch, and line that point up with the spike made in the sound recording by the clap sound. I donít want to carry a proper clapper board around with me.

    Hello Mr Shug, I hope youíre well and staying warm! I was thinking... Iíd like to see you in The Beginners Book OF Records for the coldest night ever spent in a hammock. That would be pretty cool! Make a video of it, of course, to show us here at Hammock Forums.

    I first saw a happy, waving tree in one of your videos. Until the other day, I hadnít seen one in real life. Iím wondering if they can swim. Did one of your happy, waving trees swim across the ocean, just so it could wave and be happy in front of me? If they can swim, can they also walk (how else could they get to the ocean)? Am I going to be followed around by happy waving trees, just like you get followed around by fairly big black birds? Itís certainly something to think about! Iíll have to go and set up my hammock... I do all my best thinking in there.

    You summed up my thoughts on the GoPro 2 nicely Ė GoPro iffy, picture good.

    Iím really glad you took the time to watch my movie, and itís nice to know you liked it!

    Be happy and watch out for thoughs birds!

    Great vid. I had a couple of out loud laughs on that one. Glad I wasn't drinking milk. The signpost hang was one of my favorites!

    Yes, in the Tolkien world of Middle Earth they are known as the Ent. However, perhaps more popularly, in the TSR/WoTC/& now Hasbro world or Dungeons & Dragons they are known as the Treant. And, you not only respect the Treant but also his trees.
