[Special Update: I added background music. Ludwig Van Beethoven's Symphony #7 in A major, OP 92 II. Allegretto, artist: Philharmonic Cassanova. Additionally I added a music player gadget to this blog. It's the 4th gadget down on the right. The embedded video's audio can be muted to allow only the music player to be heard if so desired.]
Right off, think of your favorite song......... Got it? Good, because that's the song that I was going to insert into this video, but copyright laws prevent me from doing so. But......... we can still accomplish my goal. Simply play your favorite song (on headphones, or i tunes on your computer, or whatever) and mute my natural video audio and badda-bing, badda-bang, now we've got something.
Actually, I think that this video content is some of the coolest stuff I have ever seen. I mean think about it. This video format is the only possible method to allow me (or my viewers) the opportunity to tour an environment and see both what's happening in front and rear perspectives SIMULTANEOUSLY!
At anyrate, I love the University of Missouri-Columbia campus. Many of the buildings are built with stone and over the last decade or so well over a 100 million dollars have been spent on new additional buildings. I find it incredible and impressive, both at the same time.
And this camera! It is absolutely crazy cool! The GoPro® HD Helmet HERO™ Camera weighs less than 5 ounces, shoots 1920 x 1080 high definition video (and 4 other video settings) as well as 5 megapixel stills, and a series of different time lapse photos, and can even film underwater. Did you catch that last part...... underwater..... underwater!

Look at how stable the image is. That is one thing that flips me out, because the roads and sidewalks are typically very bumpy, yet my images are typically smooth. True it's not smooth over cobblestones, but seriously have you ever ridden over cobblestones? Your eyeballs rattle.
At any rate, I'm a super super big fan of the GoPro® HD Helmet HERO™ Camera and I strongly encourage everyone to buy one. Specifically from the links on this site. It doesn't change your purchase price, but I do get a credit for said purchase.
Also let me say this: If you do purchase one of these awesome cameras (off my links or otherwise) and you need some technical advice give me a ring or email and I'll tell you any and everything I know about this camera and the software that I use for productions etc.
This camera has unlimited applications: biking , car racing, attaching it to your cat's tiny helmet, surfing, sky diving, on and on. So what are you waiting for? Buy it already!
