a_str8, nice video.

but damn, bolts are in mm here in mainland Europe :-(

I think the european camera mounts are different. Just walk into a local camera shop ane they should be able to help you.

yes, but we only have 6 or 7 mm threads.

I once asked and I was told "They make it non-standard on purpose" :-)

Camera mounts aren't different here, it's just that they use the inches standards for cameras.

well i googled it.and found this forum thread.
Quarter inch in metric?(thread size for tripod mount) - Canon Digital Photography Forums

very nice bikemount,would be cool with some kind of steady cam setup.
good job on the DIY vid A_Str8.
i love the fact that the making of that took longer than the actual

there is many possibillitys for mounting a camera,lets see some more creative
ways to mount/hide/protect ect the camera.

i myself likes to find new strange angels,and i would have mounted the camera
on the front forks lowest point.or somewhere low pointing back and up maybe...
im experimenting like crazy with timelapse atm.
i found a opensource program called monkeyjam,that i use to compile,
but it has got a limit to the amount of pictures it can handle it seems.

It's a little confusing, but easy when you know how :)

Just click File -> Open Video File and choose the first file in the sequence.

Make sure 'Automatically load linked segments' at the bottom left is ticked.

(Then click Open.)

If you've made a timelapse from large images you'll probably have to downsize the view to fit in the screen, so

tick View -> Swap Input / Output panes


click Video -> Filters -> Add -> 2:1 reduction

Nice thing about Virtualdub is it's stunningly fast. Really good way to preview timelapse images (even straight off the memory card!) to see if they're worth keeping.
