Ride Cams

I made these the other day as a concept for a section on the new Vecchio's website about local rides. Only problem is I need to time it so no car shadow shows up, or the obvious solution, actually film it by bike. The problem with that is that the bike is just too slow. It's pretty simply (technically) shooting then speeding up 15 minutes of 720p video, entirely more of a data compressing clusterf#$% to do a 1.5 hour bike ride's worth. I could also do time lapse with a still camera but the using the Flip with a Panavise suction cup mount is SO easy. (We played around quite a bit with the GoPro Hero HD's built in timelapse in Monaco and its great, if the camera actually works... let's just say that there should be a wide angle shot from the belly of the helicopter... but GoPro turned into GoAmateur) Anyways, here they are.
