Not ONE but TWO Strikes On Film
I placed the GoPro up on the roof facing east. The settings were 10sec time lapse mode, 5mp, and the battery life lasted about 3hrs. So at 1:37 I slowed down the video in iMovie as Life Flight cruises across the screen and looks as if it blows up against the Mesa. Then again at 1:54 I slowed the video down to capture the strike. I then added just the photos of the two strikes at the end of the video. The sound track was provided by The Cheese from a 2003 show in SF,CA
Why I am so stoked about this is because the GoPro's night vision is absent big time. As soon as light is lost, the GoPro has been useless. Once, I time lapsed a full moon rising and it was only worthy because clouds rolled in and the moon danced in and out for awhile. But lacking the distance, light, and clarity brings me to post two thumbs down.
And just for the record, I did cry, like really choked up. I was watching the Tour and witnessed poor Tejay's body shut down w/every turn of them pedals. When the team car pulled over to stop him I thought maybe it was some kind of consultation but no. When Tejay dismounted I cried w/him. I can't imagine the dedication that his whole team has put in and to not make it to Paris SUCKS!!!! I am not a pro cyclist, I have no idea what goes into it, but I can feel their pain.
