Hey guys...

I'm Tre'...aka PhotoPunk...I'm a photographer based in Houston.

Just picked up the Action HD and love it...

Soon I'll be replacing my Olympus 1030SW & 770SW in favor of the HD doing high speed on-board RC runs...here is a sample of my last run...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kRI_IiRdyPQ

Recorded on the 1030SW at 640x480 at 30 fps. HD at 60fps will be nice.

Yes, the 1030SW survived the crash but I don't think the HD would, so I've got to be careful and stay on-road. There are more vids on my youtube channel.



Not sure if this has been found yet, but MicroCenter has a house brand 8GB Class 6 SDHC card for $27....they usually have memory cards at cheap prices as lost leaders to bring people in.

I'll be picking one up tomorrow...after reading through this post it looks like some have and some haven't had success using class 6 cards...I haven't seen any Class 4 in awhile. Is this stillcorrect?



Will be looking into running a bullet cam and an external mic via the AV-in and hid the Action HD under the body of the RC and inside my real cars with the bullet mounted outside while road racing. (legal racing of course)



I checked the FW and it's 1.2...I've read about the 1.3...I'm assuming I have to email support for it. I haven't seen here if there are worthwhilegains...anyone??



I've made a steadicam (like the Merlin) but still, as us all, looking for a better gimbal...MAN....I remember studying Newton's Three Laws Of Motion in college....never thought I'd use them...;)

Thanks Fishy...

I dig your videos...watched them all while doing research on the Aiptek...!



Cool about your T-Maxx!....yes, the Olypus(s) that I use have taken a beating and keep going strong...they're waterproof and crushproof...so I've gotten spoiled and not had to be too careful with the high speeds.

I have to really be careful when I strap the HD on the mount.

Has anyone found a decent wid-angle adapter lens that would fit on the Action HD?...preferrably super wide angle or fish-eye??

the ones we found were the pheonix, and now the sunpacks. they are just .45 wide angle not fish eyes? the A-Hd it fits and the action just a tad smaller, but will work the magnetic ring or washer will stick out a lil more that's all I believe its 25-27mm

Picked up one of the $27 8 GIG class 6 SDHC cards and it works great.
