My three grown sons teamed up to buy me a GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition for Father’s Day, my birthday, and probably of couple-three Xmases. It arrived yesterday and I got a chance to play with it today for about 30 minutes.  I think I’m going to like it.

I took the photo on the right above using its time lapse mode, set at .5 seconds.  For the 30-second video clip below, I took the advice of  fellow mountain biker Jon Theis at Entice Media Works and set the video resolution to 720p and the fps to 120, then slowed it down to 25% speed with software. Super smooth slomo indeed. I was startled to see my IMBA downhill jersey fluttering in the breeze.
