After doing some research online I've discovered that the GoPro is great for time lapse videos...not just POV action shots/videos.

Im currently at sunset cliffs and it is pouring out! The GoPro is on a tripod and the tripod is connected to some rope which is tied to some shrubs....in case the wind decides to get too crazy. Im hoping the rain doesn't effect it too much...only time will tell though. For this I have the camera in "PES" mode, meaning photo every "x" amount of seconds. The camera will take 1 pic every 60 seconds or until the battery dies. After 2 hours their should still be some juice on the camera so I'll either call it quits then or swap the battery out. I just realized now that 1 pic a minute for two hours is only 120 pics and is probably not long enough for a good ime lapse. Maybe ill change it now to 1 pic every 30 seconds....


Now here's a really cool idea I want to share....

An egg timer for time lapse videos. This isn't my idea, I stole it from here:

Hopefully this one im doing now comes out good. I built my own egg timer panning device but will test it out later. First I want to get a hang of things with the "basics".

Oh and i just went outside and changed the camera to take a pic every 20 or 30 seconds...forget which one i did lol.

Hope somebody finds this info helpful.

Im using a 16 GB sdhc memory card...hopefully it doesn't get full.

Hm..not much help if you're on the tube..It'll look weird, unless you put the camera on a boat's mass and record your actions.

Now that's neat! Mounting that on the tube can be a bit of a challenge in getting it up on the right angle as you launch, since the angle will shift a tad due to the differential of weights on a float.

Yea i agree....i have a cool idea im working on though. It involves mounting my gopro pole mount to my rod rack so i can film myself with an "over the shoulder" point of view...kinda like that yakker did. Im gonna look for an adapter though so i can screw my pvc mount into the rack....if i want underwater footage i can unscew it and screw it back on after.

BTW, i remember you (or maybe somebody else) reminding me to tie a rope so it so i dont lose it. I did that the other day but found out my pole mount account actually floats because it's sealed at both ends. Its definitely not worth trusting though because at one end the end pipe i have on has a screw going through it...definitely a cool back up plan though.

That was me. Use a 1.5" to 2" wide polyvinyl band that you can get from Walmart in the camping section. It's for your rack, just in case the plastic D-ring gives way due to shear weight from the rack. I had my fill with that. That's why I use the straps.
