I needed to get some bits and bobs so as to install my Autocom so decided to try out my Canon A490 which I bought for my son, but he has no need for it. The rain held off so I took an alternative route!

I mounted it on my wing mirror via a Ram mount that I had.

I did a bit of editing, but its pretty raw, let me know what you think, don't nod off though will you!

Nice job Paul! A bit jealous, it snowed an additional 5 inches overnight here. Soon it will be my turn I can not wait...wicked cabin fever! Mad

Weather was a lot colder today, so buried myself into the garage.

Installed my Autocom and converted my bum rest to a back rest.

I am sure your good weather will be with you soon.

From the results I'd say its a very good camera.

Cheers

Yes, they have had it for sale for ages, not sure they will ever sell it for the price they have it up for !

I need sort out a sync problem with the rendering of the video as the captions seem to be coming up too late Mad

Nice job! Camera works really well. A bit scary though, not used to the view from the opposite side of the road.

Ride safe!

Laughing Why is it that I get better results from a predominantly still camera than I do from a dedicated SD video camera, unless I am doing something wrong Question

Very strange seeing cars in the far left parking lane facing in BOTH directions. It must be dangerous for traffic to cut across the road to park facing traffic.

I also noticed that your traffic signals go Red-Yellow-Green. That gives you a nice advance warning that you're about to get a green light.

Roads are so narrow cars and trucks are parked up on the sidewalk. Do that over here and a ticket for sure, maybe even a tow.

Great video quality, nice tranquil accompanying soundtrack.

My guess would be that the camera (still) uses some form of internal software to stabilize the image. It is a bit more expensive to have image stab on video, especially on point and shoot cameras.

Heh people dump their cars all over the place over here, if you notice near the end a car trying to pull across the traffic, that piece of road in a morning is a nightmare, with a number of wing mirrors being knocked off.

Yes the traffic lights don't just jump for stop to go or visa versa, they warn you what is coming next (not that we dont already know Laughing ) I would like to see however is a smaller traffic light further down the post, like the French do.

The sound track was a bit rushed as I had to sort the seat and electrics out on the Silverwing.

Next time it could be Hooty and the Blowfish, Taylor Swift or Garth Brooks :-)

Hi Dale, well the video camera I have, has got image stabilisation, so maybe I am doing something wrong !

Well then my guess would be the nature of an open shutter vs. the very small amount of time a shutter is open for a still capture. I have mounted my FLIP on a stalk and have held it and I get the best vid when I hold it. Of course that is impractical for long periods of time so I don't do a lot of video any more. It seems to me that the most stable video I've seen is where the camera is mounted to helmets or to the rider in some fashion.
