I’ve seen a few other videoblogs featurng bike rides (a recent one from Chris Nolan.ca springs to mind), so I thought I’d have a go.
This videoblog is a bit longer than my usual, and thus a bit larger at around 12MB, but I think it’s worth it. See what it’s like to cycle around where I live. I show a journey of a little under a mile from near where I live to the nearest cycle shop. (You gotta love google maps!)
I had some practical problems. I recorded the ride by simply holding my little Nisis camera in my left hand while also gripping the handlebar. It jiggles quite a lot, and there is a lot of wind and road noise through the built-in mic (which I turned down a bit in the edit). You can still clearly hear the old bent mudguards scraping against the tyres, though.
How have other people managed effective (and safe) recordings while cycling?
