maybe cam position?

Well that is quite a close up of the spot 8-inches in front of your boot

You really have to look at the viewfinder before packing the camera to check the vertical and horizontal angles. And watch out for those rocks. Also, I have never heard music like that on the slope, and hope I never do.
Thanks for the attempt and better luck next time.

That was Great!!! For those that had any questions about the rocks @ snowbird this year, here's their answer...

Well, it was a first effort. You'll improve, I'm sure! Looking forward to future adventures from Bush's helmet cam.

"If you fall here, you're prolly gonna die really. You know!"

That was awesome. However I did get motion sick watching that. Why are you skiing so slow? Did I rub off on you? lol

You're going to have to PM GheePup on TGR and find out what he's doing re: placement of the cam, it looks like you're zoomed in too close to get good action.

It does look like you are zoomed in a bit. What kind of cam do you have? Mine is fixed on wide. Try playing around with it at home to get it pointing about where you want it.

Last time I skied that run there was a lot more snow. Despite the motion sickness, that's how mountains should show their conditions on the web - from a skiers POV.

It looked like you were skiing on the moon.

what are you using for a camera? I've been hoping to hook up a helmet cam to my camcorder, but I don't know if I need to get a new one in order to helmet cam film.

Check to see if you have video input on your current cam. I've done it with Digi8 and minidv cams back when I had a helmet cam, or a camcorder for that matter.

Hey BushwhackerinPA: When you get some good video, do us a favor and download AutoGK and encode it in Xvid and then host it on a free file hosting site. Google Video/Youtube/etc.

Sorry Bushwacker, I don't mean to steal your thread, but this video was right below yours, and it's way too cool. A guy skiing the Eiger, with a paraglider.
