I went from this:
I love this new GoPro wide-angle camera. It gives a whole new perspective on the sailor's/rider's point of view in the middle of the action. Here's a short 3 minute video of a recent February '09 winter windsurfing session on Lake Norman - the inaugural use of my new wide-angle GoPro. I need to make a slight adjustment to the camera angle. You'll notice my nose, eye lashes, and helmet in the video...it looks funny...actually gives a surreal feeling to the footage since you can see part of my head.
