This was one of my early attempts at capturing video on a motorcycle. This was long before GoPro’s. I had to attach bullet cams to a dirt bike slamming through rocks, and feed said bullet cam to a digital camcorder in the rider’s backpack. Kind of rough. The biggest problem with the video is the compression artifacts in the video stream from years ago. Today this would be smooth and clear, but back then this is what we got without really huge file sizes. I produced this video on an old Windows XP computer with 2GB of RAM – ages ago in the computer and video world!
