Video For Valuable Art of Monica Fleming

LB Open Studio Tours
LB Open Studio Tours

I shot this video of Monica Fleming’s Valuable project with a gopro camera during LB Open Studio Tours in Long Beach California. Unfortunately the mic jack seems to not work very well on my gopro video camera so I did not get audio. That is a real bummer, I thought I had some super interviews. I tested it in the previous video and it seemed to work. I have since found it works but is very fiddly. You need to insert the mic just so or no audio. I hope the new gopro is built a little better. Overall I really like my gopro.

GoPro HD Hero 3 coming very soon

I am waiting and counting down the time when the new GoPro HD Hero 3 will be available. 12:01 PST. What I would like to know more about is the sensor? Who makes it? What size is it? What kind of sensor is in this camera? The GoPro video camera has become one of my favorite cameras. I used it for the first time on a shoot for television over the week end. Before this I had only used it for youtube videos.
