    Spaz great work on the morning video reports.
    They are very detailed and thorough, therefore offering something the resort web sights donít.
    I love the snow depths readings as itís nice to get the local readings, other than the Spencers Creek depths that are 14kms away.
    The Images look great and I find the realistic uncut videos are much more beneficial when judging conditions other than the hero, unrealistic fluff the resorts churn out daily.
    Keep it up Spaz.

    Every snow flake is a miracle, lets not wast them.

    Thanks Barcoo

    I'll try for an earlier one today, putting my boots on now, though it's pretty foggy up there and I don't know how much we will acually see.

    Morning Spaz, +1 saw you at the top of Snowgums yesterday - he normally does not say much about snowboarders, but lets just say he was impressed with your riding!

    Look forward to seeing your upload for today.

    Barcoo hasn't been to the snow this season yet, he skis and he doesn't have a headcam (but soon will)

    T'was me.

    The camera is mounted on my boot, my laces hold the mount in place and the camera head attaches to it, the recording unit is strapped to the side of my boot in a neoprene case and velcro straps.
    The camera is still a little loose this way but is much easier for me to get off my board than when I had the camera mounted on my binding strap, this VIDEO LINK has a few videos from when it was mounted on my binding - click on "Stu the lifty" for a shorter video or "High Noon" to see me do that run in about 2.5 minutes!

    If you need any help with your set up Farty I have many different mounting methods.

    If you went to that site above and tried to click on the links on the top of the page they don't work! [img]graemlins/cold.gif[/img]
    The links below the TV work fine if you want to explore my site more.

    Very nice. [img]graemlins/wow.gif[/img] I want one. [img]smile.gif[/img] Can you use one of those for full immersion in Water? I'd like to play around with one for sailboarding....

    </font>[/QUOTE]Sorry Spaz credit where credit is due......well done I am going to attempt it this year. I strapped my didtal camera to my helmet a couple of years ago and straight lined Wombat at Buller. The video was really bury and very see sawey so felt sick watching it.

    Will definitely try it that way this year.

    Thanks again

    Yes NB, a mate of mine had the laborious task of taking one of my cameras on a surfing trip to the Maldives (he is such a good friend), it proved to be excellent in the salt water.
    Although the recording unit is rated to be submersible to one meter for 30 min in fresh water with the addition of a purpose built H2O bag it can handle 10m indefinitely. The camera head is ultra tough and can do almost anything.
