GoPro 2 HD External Mic and WVGA 120FPS Slow Motion Test 5

I plugged in my cheap little Azden wireless WM-PRO microphone into my GoPro 2 HD camera to give the much-anticipated external mic jack a test. It works. I had to bump the levels up a fair bit in Adobe Premiere Pro. The difficult thing with this setup is that you can't use the protective housing and an external mic w/o drilling a hole into the housing. Shot in WVGA 120FPS mode, you can see a little slow motion test at the end. Edited and exported in native 848x480 size.

Slow Motion Only Test

Slow motion test with the new GoPro 2 HD in WVGA 120 FPS mode. works pretty well. Original video file is 848x480 pixels. i up-res'd it to 1280x720 in Adobe Premiere Pro and slowed it to 25% in the timeline for this export just to see how it looks. Not bad, very easy. Beware this vicious Maltipoo named Marley!

    I just started using premiere pro cs5 and ive been shooting with my go at 1080 30fps. But i cant seem to choose the right sequence preset. it just seems to come out all pixelated everytime. Also, i would like to start shooting at WVGA 120fps, so what preset would you use for that?

    I think the biggest news is that you're using an adobe product for editing.

    The world definitely needs more super slowmo puppeh footage. That clip looks pretty clean motion-wise.
