I Just saw Warren's thread about a go pro location on his 1926. It turns out I was putting up a video I did yesterday in my T at the same time he was posting. It looks like you just spend a few minutes to make and throw up a nice video an presto, you're Steve Jelf! Not so, you have to first figure it all out. So if you want to look at the very first effort in this process go to:

1927 driving around Penn Valley and Lake Wildwood

I had a few extra minutes so I did a quick spin within a few miles of my home. It took about 18 hours to post the 45 minute clip, and I found that YouTube (or more likely, I) had clipped the last bit off.

I have not found the best placement of camera yet so some of the things I wanted to show are off frame. Even so you can get an idea of what summer driving in draught afflicted Northern California is like.

At least the best part was included. Be sure to see the unplanned scene at about 31:00 in the clip where my border collie, D.D., demonstrates how to pose for a photo.



I promise further videos will be more Jelf-worthy in future, I just wanted to try this and to share that 30:00 scene.

Don't know why that video doesn't start at the beginning or contain the final scene... well I'm in learning mode! You can push it back to start at the beginning if it doesn't do that for you either.

Yes, some of the angles are a little off, but I'd call it a very good first effort. I like the head mount a lot better than having the camera stationary all the way through a one-shot video. Makes for a more interesting ride for the viewer.

I love the patina. I'll bet a lot of people can't believe the car runs. I'd leave the body just the way it is, looks cool. Don.

How long before we see the first Pittbull video?

I was getting dizzy watching the road and trees fly by! :-) (some that know me might say I am dizzy anyway but that's another story! :-) ). Any idea how fast your were going?

I've played around with camera locations a bit. I've clamped to the top irons to get the drivers perspective, I've attached to the windshield in various positions, I've clamped to the radiator neck, etc. The last video I edited and posted used a majority of the front and center looking out the windshield. I use a suction cup to attach to the windshield. I preferred this location over many of the other I've tried for one main reason... image stability. There is much less vibration. I also like the camera behind the windshield because there is a lack of wind noise. It does have its drawbacks, you cant see the actions of the driver, the perspective is less panoramic, and you often get glare or worse insects in the field of view. Overall I find recording my vintage car outings enjoyable and I feel people like to see what I do.

Here is the link to the last video I posted to youtube. Day three is all shot from the radiator neck.
