Hey guys, just under six days to enter our video and photo contests......
Guys, the plugin is having issues. We may extend the deadline because of this... please bare with us. Thanks for your patience!
I am going to capture my entry tomorrow for both the video and photo will feature the same basic subject, so maybe one of them will win if i am lucky.
And to my amazement the weather forecast have again been changed, but this time for the better, so i might even be lucky to capture my entry during a sunny patch.
I had to abandon this after seeing footage.
First off i run latest FW on the SJ7 and i forgot ti revert to a better functioning slowmotion firmware, so the 240 FPS video i got was not that good.
And the pictures i took at the same time also dident come out as good as i wanted, but that was more down to bad luck with timing as the thing i wanted to photograph was over in the blink of a eye.
But the video do demonstrate what we thing of products sold online as SJcam products but are far from that ( fake )
Great, were you able to upload?
No i have not uploaded i think the footage are too bad, i used the newest firmware ( beta ) and it do not work well with slowmotion recordings.
Instead i have added something about that to the error document ( bitrate for 720p / 240 FPS slow motion are just 6 mbit for the output file )
I knew this but i forgot to load a older firmware that do better with slow motion.
My pictures also was bad timing so also not as good as i would have hoped for, i used burst photo and 20 photos, but this action are over in a split second so only 2 pictures have any action on them.
And though i used the 2 SJ6 cameras i only got pictures from one of them as i dident press the button good enough it seem, a little stressfull to be standing so close to a "bullets" path.
So the best thing of the day was there are now one less fake SJ camera in the world
Last day to submit is tomorrow. Please upload submissions now!
