So, here's a fun idea.
Recently, I acquired a GoPro Hero 3+ Black edition. Needless to say, this lil guy has quite the video capturing power. Some of the videos I've recorded are simply staggering.
I'm thinking about doing some diagnosis videos for BSD and other games I own. Basically, as I fix a problem, I would do a video of the problem I had, the things I did to diagnose the problem, the solution, and location/fix of said solution.
Would anyone be interested in this? I am not going to be doing on a time interval basis; it will be "as it happens" kind of videos. I would also be doing this to demonstrate the GoPro's capabilities as it is EASILY the best hands free camcorder I have ever dealt with - period. Plus, with two hands free, it would be much easier to show and explain a problem, testing, diagnosis, prognosis, and eventual solution.
I did some recording of a game or two of BSD tonight in the dark with the GP on a head-strap unit, and if it wasn't such a shaky mess - because let's be honest, few of us remain 100% still when playing pinball - I'd upload it for everyone's enjoyment/chagrin/easy mocking of me. Next time, I am going to record with the lights on as I am sure it will be far easier to see the action of the game. I am considering getting a tall enough tripod for the GP, or maybe I'll mount it from the ceiling for a bird's eye view - how to do that I am still working on. If anyone has any ideas, please by all means, share! If I can find a way to mount the GP on the ceiling, I'd gladly do it and record a couple games for anyone's enjoyment/chance to criticize my playing/etc.
I've wanted to do something like this in the community for a little while now. Originally, the GP was bought for other things like car videos, but I got to thinking about its use in pinball, and I figured why not. Didn't cost too much for the accessories I needed - mainly the head mount unit.
I'm uploading a preview video of the GP at 1080p @ 24 FPS. It is going to take a while, so I'll post it in the morning. It will give an idea of the video quality that I would like to become the standard when I record future videos.
