a video of someone XC schooling with it. I also wanted to see if there were some more exciting positions to mount the camera - Stirrup, Girth, Knee.
One excellent use for this I think, is as a training aid for Instructors. If an instructor wore one of these whilst teaching you could easily record the whole lesson without the need for someone else on a camera, and you'd be seeing exactly what your instructor saw. What a great way to review your training and instruction.
So far I've discovered I need to spend a lot more time mounting the camera securely, and the whole stirrup idea might be a bridge too far, as I find motion sickness sets in watching the footage! (see below) Typical man, never reading the instructions!
Tomorrow is another day and I shall continue with my filming exploits in an attempt to be ready with this for Highclere in a week or so's time.
Meanwhile the Great White Charger is feeling fit and lively, and at some point over the next few days we'll be doing a little XC schooling for fun, I shall attempt to get my camcorder sorted by then!
Now, grab your travel pills and watch this:
