    Default Cell phone video test



    Is this good enough to made it worthwhile attemting to capture some video while in Moab? I can adjust it so I don't show so much of the mounting bracket.

    Looks great to me. I think they have a GoPro app but I could be wrong if you are interested. You already have the phone so I would say just to give it a shot in moab whether the video is good or not. You have nothing to loose.

    It looks decently crisp.

    Does the phone have enough storage for the duration before you can offload content?

    Looks good to me Tom, can you put in 64GB card? My little camera is supposed to max out at 32 but works great with 64 which means I can take over 1,000 snapshots now.

    I think you're all set Tom, I looked at it on youtube and it gives resolution up to 720hd, which is as high as most internet videos go, so I guess that's what your phone is capable of (that's really good!). Most are watched at 360 anyway so it doesn't go too slow. In my gopro I use a 32gb card and carry a spare 16, I'm going to get a 64gb at some point, I just haven't needed it yet and already had the 32. If I shot at higher resolution I would, but vimeo converts all my videos to 720 anyway so I don't bother. I shot 4 hours non-stop (1 video) of skiing last year at 720 and just maxed the 32 out. Learned a lesson about how boring straight through video can be too, since then I've been more judicious and haven't used more than 19gb. I use a 16 in my playsport and can shoot 4:25 hrs at 720.

    The quality is good, but it seems to vibrate too much.

    you can minimize the shaking by inverting it, put the suction cup high up on the windshield and let the camera hang below it. It might shoot upside down, but you can easily flip it in (as far as I know) any video editing program.

    Thanks Paul. I'd need a longer power cable. Also use it as GPS so want to be able to reach it easily. I was concerned about the shaking. Bothers me. I'll give a try Sat and see. Gonna link the drive to work this morning.

    Chris,

    I can bring my laptop to Moab and off load every night. Also the laundry there has free wifi and I can upload up to 7 gig to skydrive. So, shouldn't need a bigger card at least this trip.

    Nope. Didn't know it existed. Can't find anything about it. Have a link?

    If you go to edit your video in youtube, it will let you steady the video. It can take care of minor shake/wiggle.
