    A trip around Manhattan

    (for those of you who don't frequent the Northeast section) I put together a quick GoPro vid of 8 of us doing a trip around Manhattan this past weekend. Lemme know what you guys think. I know, I forgot to put music in, maybe I'll do a version 2.0




    I also learned a coupla things from this vid;
    -RainX the lens, hopefully prevent water drops
    -Bring another elbow to level the camera (second camera position)
    -The first (low, rearward) camera mount isn't the best shot, but mehh...

    And when I'm just trolling around, ~5-10mph, the motor vibrations shake the camera/case pretty bad. Anyone else experience this?? You can hear it VERY clearly in the vid, between the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges.
    This was with the 3m double stick mount, not the automotive suction cup (which I do have, tho).

    Another thing I learned w/ this vid, with the wide angle lens makes everything seem far away, so I need to get closer to the action (other skis) to make it more interesting!
