Very cool video bapyoubip \:D/

You did a good job on the camera work. I liked the few shots that came in when your shadow could be seen. :D

Oh, good song choice. Gotta love Boston.

Great music choice.

One technique I have used with my helmet cam is to tell the group you are riding with you will be taping and to let you move to the back of the pack and them move to the front.
This does two things. It gives the video more action and makes it more interesting AND everyone in your group gets to be on film. Great to show that evening after a hard day of riding. Everyone will be shouting "There I am. See me?"

It is hard to resist the natural urge to look around like we usually do while riding when you are filming.

GREAT VIDEO Anything Boston is good! :D Question though. I know if it were my helmet the camera was on, I'd be looking every wich direction, not only to look for other riders coming at me but just taking in the sights. When filming do you take special care to only look ahead?

its so hard for me not to look around, i normally am looking everywhere but forward so its a bit of an adjustment, i turn a couple times accidently (one to avoid a roost) but nothing major, just takes a little getting used to
if you want to be in my next helmet cam video, i'll have to point the camera backwards...
