I started video recording a lot of my rides a couple of years ago while preparing for my three state bike tour of West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Maryland. On a side note. two of us will be riding the Erie Canal, end to end in June of 2016. We have done a few tours together and separately, and both agree, that the Erie Canal is such a sweet bike ride that we will do it for the third time.
My Kodak Zx3 worked fine for over a year. One day it seized, and that got me to check online for solutions. It was unanimously reviewed that it was a piece of junk, and to not even try to get it working again. After months of on and off attempts, I posted on that same forum how much I concurred.
I wanted to video some of my rides again and found a good deal on the Kodak Zx5 that got much better review than the Zx3. I do much of the recording while riding and that’s the reason I don’t use my smart phone. Dropping that would get very expensive, and also the Kodak has a wrist strap and is much easier to operate than a Droid.
I also don’t use YouTube much. I much prefer Vimeo for many reason. I also bought a pretty high end video software back then and kind of feel compelled to use it. One of my favorites is HERE. A ride in Provincetown MA, on the outer tip of Cape Cod. Standing at the beginning of US Rt 6 that terminates in Long Beach, CA was very cool. The dunes made me wonder if I was still on earth. You’ll see it if you check out the Video.
Below is the unedited Zx5 in action.

So exciting to hear you are biking along the canal again! Fun stuff 🙂
