    I borrowed a neighbor's GoPro Hero 7 Black, as I'm thinking about picking up the new 8. I really wanted to see how the Hypersmooth digital stabilization worked. I'm super impressed! It requires a bit of cropping, but in the widest view there's still plenty of action on the screen (at least from a chestie mount). Take a look!



    (click through to Youtube and select 4k for best quality)

    Fast looking trail, looks like a double track mostly.

    Nope - the stuff on the video is all singletrack. Wide in places, but not fireroad wide. There are roads that connect the trails in Whiting, but none of them made the video. The trails in there are grin inducing - slight downhill pitch, but the kind you still want to pedal. If we still had triple cranks, it's a big-ring ride. Twisty, turny with dips, little kickers and tree canopy for much of it. Also very crowded at times.

    As for the 4k - my computer didn't like it. It wouldn't load completely and was constantly buffering. You were hauling the mail though. Looks like the Jeffsy agrees with you, @no worries

    I just got a Hero 7 Black and I too am impressed with it. Which video editor did you use before it went on youtube?

    3 SC is now 2 SC.
    Unless you have an external 4K monitor hooked to your MacBook Pro, there’s no point... You ain’t got enough dots. :D Most PCs are the same...

    That’s why I stick to 1080 for uploads... plain old 2K.

    I wouldn’t call it double track either, but it is not a single track as if there is one line. I’ll call it a 27.5 plus trail, the kind with options.

    Thanks! Brings back some good memories of Whitting, especially when the deer crosses in front of you...

    I meant to mention that. I downloaded the free version of DaVinci Resolve 16. It's free but it's a full featured editor. I'm loving it.

    The issue is that Youtube gives a video bandwidth based on the resolution. First when you upload it, but also when you download it. So you should always upload a 4k rip, and if you're watching a video you should always click the 4k option, even if you're watching on a smaller screen. Even if you shoot in 1080p, when you render, render 4k just for the Youtube upload. It's silly, but its been that way for a long time.

    If I'm not sharing too much, here's another video of Camarillo at El Moro that I shot on today's ride while I still have the camera on loan.

    This vid is not fast :) But I did clean it! :)
