  2. Nice. I have a Specialized RockHopper and I'm also looking to change. Are you staying with Ellsworth? Here's a video I made last summer using a cheap Oregon Scientific helmetcam mounted on my handlebars http://vimeo.com/9945944
  3. Cool footage. What MTB you riding?
  4. Buy.com has the Kingston 16GB for $31.95, no shipping. http://www.buy.com/prod/kingston-16gb-secure-digital-high-capacity-sdhc-card-class-4-kingston/q/loc/101/206865168.html?adid=17580

  6. Thanks for the test/update. It's coming down to certain cards and their size. As I've already said, I don't blame the cards as so much I do the camera at this point. I'm willing to accept that some cards stretch the truth on their class rating but GoPro has fault as well.
  7. An SD card must be formated to FAT32 in order for the GoProHD to use the card. One limitation of a FAT32 formatted device is filesize. The maximum filesize is 4GB. That is the limit for "one" file. So, you can get about 40-45 minutes max on one recording session (in 1080 or 720 mode) and the camera will cut out no matter what. You can start another recording (if you have enough space on your card) but again, the limitation is 40-45 minutes per recording. Here is a wiki link regarding FAT32: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_Allocation_Table Scroll down to the "FAT32" section and you'll see this.... Now, if GoPro allowed formatting the cards to NTFS the filesize would not be an issue.
  8. Thanks. They had changed the track this weekend and I was not comfortable with a couple jumps but it was fun. Hahahaha...I saw that video. Nice save! The exploring video is cool. Proof bark busters are a must.
  9. Finally got some decent footage of a buddy at the MX track. Notice the ruts.
  10. How big is the 40 minute file that cuts off? The filesize limit of FAT32 (format of SD card) is 4 GB. In other words, a video clip will stop when the filesize reachs 4Gb on the SD card. By my calculation at 1080p, that would be about 45 minutes roughly.
  11. Has anyone found the double-sided foam 3M VHB tape for the mount pucks anywhere at a local store? I read somewhere that AutoZone carries the tape but they call it "moulding tape". The actual tape is 3M VHB (very high bond) 4991. Bought a new helmet this week and need to move the curved mount puck to the new helmet.
  12. I actually did not get an SOS today. I used an HP 4GB card that worked ok for the most part. One video did cut out at one point. Starting to wonder if I have a bad camera, not card. I've got 2 weeks off for Xmas, hoping to get some track time during the week. I'll try to pay attention to battery.
  13. Using my class 6 Transcend in the GoProHD, I've had video stop a few times mid-stream in the record. I've addressed it with GoPro. The same Transcend class 6 card has worked in my Canon HD camcoder for over a year now without a hitch. In fact, the CanonHD Cam is much more demanding on an SD card transfer speed-wise than the GoPro. Oh well....I have many other cards to try and I'm still impressed with the camera.
  14. Class 6 seems to mean nothing to GoPro. I also have a class 6 but it has problems. At $35 for a 16GB card you can buy two and still be cheaper than $88.
