Unboxing: Vivitar 1250 Tripod

My first unboxing vlog post on my Youtube channel where I unbox a tripod that I picked up from Amazon, a Vivitar 1250 Tripod. Shot with my GoPro that I mounted on my bike pump since I didn’t have a tripod at the time. I do go off tangent a bit here and there, sorry. Let me know what you folks think about this video.

Thanks!

A Beautiful Morning Sunrise

Well I was up late Tuesday night, so I decided to play around with my GoPro and film a time lapse video of the sunrise. Sadly the weather wasn’t cooperating so the time lapse didn’t look to spectacular. And to be honest the view from where I was filming wasn’t so great.

 

I’ve  been wanting to do more time lapse with the GoPro but still need to figure out the best formula for capturing good content and getting the right framing of the subject. The best way that I’m going to learn is from experience which means that I need to get out more and go shooting.

Until next time!

Time Lapse Fun

Here is a time-lapse compilation video that I made while on my East Coast trip. Sadly all good things must come to an end and now I am on my way back to the West Coast and was in CLT typing up this draft as I head to LAX. Anyway, let me know what you think!

Thanks for all the hospitality! Can’t wait to come back East!

EDC Day 3, I am the one who knocks.

EDC Day 3 ended last Sunday and I’m only getting this post out now, Wednesday. Oh well, it was a long journey back to the Bay and I was spent. Anyway, Enjoy!

EDC Day 2, OMG!

What another awesome day at EDC! W started the day a little late, didn’t get past the gate till about ten but still managed to see a ton of headliners and have some fun.

On a tiny journalist news reporting note, there was a small isolated fire last night that involved a golf cart, which was probably caused by a short circuit. Firefighters responded to the scene quickly and were able to extinguish the flame before anyone could get hurt and too damper the mood of the revelers.

I did make a small time lapse that didn’t turn out to well due to the lighting condition. However if you’d like to view the time-lapse video, you can view it here.

When we got back to our hotel we checked out the Bamboo Pool here at the Cosmopolitan where we played around with the GoPro to get some cool and neat shots. Now I’m off to get some rest; it’s about noon and hasn’t slept since we got back.

EDC Day 1

First day of EDC was amazing, music and venue was to die for, but very hot. Couldn’t stay under the Circuit Grounds to long cause of the heat trapped under the tent. I stayed well hydrated and had to step away from the stages a few times to cool down. Wished that my GoPro battery hadn’t died, or invested in a second battery pack, because I was unable to capture as much video as I would have like. I did miss the large meet up yesterday at 9 and was disappointed about that, was in the middle of R3hab’s set where I lost the track of time. Anyway, had a blast and still have 2 more days of amazing experience to look forward to!

Time Lapse Test Drive

Went for a test drive around the City to with my GoPro to see the different qualities of the recording.

GoPro Case

With my first vlog, I decided that it was time to organize the parts for my GoPro. Before organizing my GoPro and its accessories, I just kept the GoPro and everything that came along with it in a Nike drawstring bag.

But after tonight everything goes in this nice padded case that I received for Christmas. Below you can see how I store my GoPro Hero 2 now.

GoPro Storage. Top: First impression upon opening of the case. Middle: Unobstructed view of the case with the head mount to the side. Bottom:  GoPro accessories.

In the top image you can see what the case opens up to. The head strap doesn’t have a home in the case and just lays lose within the case. Once you move the head strap out of the way, you have a full view to all the pieces within the case.

What’s inside (from the bottom image starting from top left going clockwise): Suction cup mount, spare GoPro housing with extended back, GoPro in a skeleton housing, LCD back, bolts (6), pivot arms (4), tripod mount, bolt, USB charger, Amity, and USB cord.

There is plenty of room to add more accessories to the case, even another GoPro. Also I plan on including a micro USB cord to charge the Amity battery extender and picking up a Wifi back or another GoPro battery.

What do you folks think?

My First Vlog!

Hi Folks!

I have had a GoPro for quite some time and recently just decided to start vlogging. After some trials and errors, I finally decided to just record and post my first vlog. My first vlog is unedited but in the future I’m sure that I’ll pick up a video editing software to make future vlog post appear more polished.

Enjoy and feed back is welcomed.
