This video was shot on 11/24/2012 at MN Pro Paintball in Lakeville, MN. The first portion was shot with the Emerson HD Action Camcorder, purchased on Black Friday at Menards for $34.99. Normally, if they have them, it runs $39.99. If you're looking for a cheap alternative to the GoPro, this might do it for you...

So, for the record, this is my first attempt at editing and posting a YouTube video. I'm hoping to do more as I get better at using the cameras (yes, that's plural), as I was impressed enough with the Emerson that I went out and bought a second, and then fell into a SMOKING deal on a GoPro Hero HD on eBay. The goal will be to have two barrel cams as well as a helmet cam running when we go out the next time, which will probably be Dec. 29th's Cold War at MN Pro.

Once Spring comes around, we're planning on getting quite a bit of play/prep in to get ready for Living Legends 6, where we'll be running what we hope will be a 5-person squad with 3 GoPro's and the 2 Emersons... should come up with some wicked video from that! But, to improve, I'd love to hear your thoughts/opinions/suggestions. The video is just under 5 minutes long, and frankly, needs improvement. Any technique suggestions, comments, etc. would be greatly appreciated! This is purely for fun (most of our group is over 40) and we have no delusions of grandeur... but we're having a blast!

Thansk for checking it out, folks!

Thanks, Rotozip2! I seriously thought it was about as cliche as I could go... But why not? Love me some Rage!

You can see how much better the GoPro is... but is it 10x better is the question? For Paintball, I'm not sure it is. It also depends on what you plan to do with the video afterwards. I will say the video is better on my Mac before rendering for YouTube, so take that for whatever it's worth.

Thanks for looking, folks! Any feedback on ways to improve it for next time?

up the FPS on the camera.

Also, looks like a field that CNoddings did an open play at.

On the Emerson, I'm not sure you can up the FPS... it's set to 30 FPS at 720P, the highest it can handle. I'll take a look at the manual to see if there's anything else that could be done to improve that, or if it's possibly not set correctly now. Thanks for the suggestion!

CNoddings: Yep, he plays at MN Pro Paintball in Lakeville, MN on a regular basis. I'm pretty sure he's shot me before. :tup:
