Only two defining forces have ever committed to die for you:
Jesus Christ for your soul and
The American G.I. for your freedom.

Test of the GoPro Hero 3 Black

This is admittedly a crude video that is an experiment on how to control the GoPro camera and the use of Sony's Movie Studio Platinum 12 video editing software.  I can control the camera with either my Samsung Galaxy S3 or iPod via bluetooth and WiFi.  The Major problem I am having is the size of the files created on the camera that are extremely large.  The camera file used to create this video recorded at 1080p/60 is 190.3 MB.  The resulting Sony Movie Studio file when rendered for Windows was 32.7 MB.

Another problem is audio.  My purpose for purchasing the camera was for use on the DJI Phantom radio controlled quad-rotor.  I am not to sure when I will be able to fly the contraption because of the weather here in the mountains persists in sticking its nose at Al Gore and his global warming scam. If you have any interest in the RC helicopter than Google it or search for it on Youtube.

Black and White Artistic HDR

The three photos were shot handheld using the Nikon D7000 and the Bower 8mm Fish-eye lens.  Initial processing was accomplished using Photomatix selecting one of the many presets provided by the program.  For this photo I selected B&W Artistic.
