Trying out my new GoPro camera (video)

Okay folks, bear with me on the video quality.
Santa came early and I got a new GoPro camera. I went out today and shot my first video, it's a little shakey (need a new mount) but I had fun.

I used on of the flat mounts on my YJ dash and don't get the shaking.

Ya, these were taken with the long arm on the suction cup. Next time I'll use the short arm or a stick-on mount.

I love mine. I use the short arm and suction cup right out on the front of the hood.

So who knows how to edit and make a long video into a shorter one? I have been messing around with Adobe Premier 10 and I feel stupid. I guess some more time will be helpful.

I use Windows Movie Maker, It may not be the best but it came free with Windows 7.

If you go to the GoPRO site they have a clip editor for download. Did you find that in your videos it looks like you're driving faster than you actually were? I took a short clip yesterday offroad with my Hero 3 and it looks like im flying down the trail when I wasn't.

Nice video's. For my racing applications (non jeep) I find the stick on mount works the best but you may still need to add shims to minimize vibrations.

I really want to do Box canyon now, I think Elvis is beyond my skill set and equipment though (for now).

Elvis is great, all the really tough spots have by passes. We've had guys with stock JKs and TJs come along. We even had a CJ last time.
