    Nice Warren! What's your impression of u-tube vs Vimeo?

    Are you downloading to Mac and editing on iMovie?

    At the moment both have their place.

    Vimeo to me feels much more professional and displays in a higher quality off the bat. It's also much cleaner and allows things such as more channels per account. So for example I can have a fishing channel and a personal channel for my login.

    It also allows you to re-upload the same movie. So when I found a typo in a movie I could re-upload it and keep all the stats and comments. In YouTube I had to delete the old video and upload a new one, thus loosing all the stats.

    YouTube is older technology although they try to keep it up to date. It also feels more like an amateur site to me, somewhere where you can upload a video from your cellphone of your friend running into a wall. It also only allows one channel per login. The quality of the average video on it is not as good as those on Vimeo and the controls are much looser. That said it integrates well into things like forums (ie here) and other sites. It also works better on cell phones and slower connections by default.

    One could go on and on, but I think you get the point.

    As for editing, I've used Windows Movie Maker and Videopad, both of which are free on a PC. Sadly I don't have a Mac

    Cheers...and thanks...

    I am also leaning towards Vimeo. I just need to get some beter GoPro footage FF wise. Taken some reasonable offshore paddling footage, but its spoiled by a water droplets on the lense! Got some anti-droplet muti now that I hope to test soon, but may try the new flat lense as well.

    On the other side I have some crazy kingfish footage on a Sony cam from a while ago I need to edit and post on Vimeo

    Is the flat lens out yet? I'd love one for my trip to Madagascar.

    Also let me know how the anti-droplet stuff goes. Have a fair amount of footage with droplets on the lens.

    Very nice video Warren. Looks like you had an awesome trip. Besides the fishing, the wild life must have been spectacular.

    Hey Brian,

    Ja, the wildlife was good. Although since we mostly fished we only saw it on the way in and out of the reserve.

    That said there were plenty of buck and birds in camp, as well as those pesky monkeys

    Cheers,
    Warren

    Warren, have you tried your GoPro in the low light, ie dusk, dawn. One thing that noramlly hinders pics that time of day is fashback on normal cameras from the condensation in the air(if that makes sense). It seesms the GP are pretty good in low light?

    I've used them in low light and the image/video is rather noisy and desaturated, but it works fine and is certainly usable.

    I have a video called Casino Beach on my Vimeo and YouTube page which has some driving at night followed by a sunrise scene on the beach taken in very dark conditions. Take a look and you'll see the quality in low light.
