I wanted to experiment with an HD hat camera so I tried the Go pro HD mounted on my hat..

Quality is great but the video looks like I'm flying in a fishbowl...

Makes everything look SOOO far away..

Looks like i need to try a different type of camera

Just get a lens with a longer focal length. That fisheye aint gonna cut it..! Im pretty sure those go pros have interchangable lenes....

Guess I was wrong. Just reading up on them and saw no mention of interchangeable lens. But I did see different capture options available. You may wanna check the software for zoom or other options to get it set up for what you are doing...

Gopro HD
I was using the ultra Wide view..

I tried the regular 1080P mode with 127 degree viewing angle instead of the 170 Degree and it's MUCH better

it still makes everything look so far away though..

That is much better. I thought there was a 720 mode too. At least it stays in frame the whole time. You can zoom it up with post processing depending on if you wanna mess with all that......and have a program

Smackdown
Nah....I have never been a smack down flyer...it's not in my blood I guess...I've always been more into the piro stuff and general sport flying

I enjoy watching the smack down as much as the next guy but I like the more technical stuff myself...

I'll leave the smack down to you man
