it was a very first gen prosumer hdv camera…when looking at the footage with thoughts of remastering to bluray…and adding some stuff with my new camera, there was just such a quality difference, i didn’t bother
i’m happy with the quality of the DVD footage as it turned out though
(keep downloading, let’s make my next movie have a bunch of aerial footage!)
For those that don’t know, the one riding the contraption with two wheels in the Inner Balance video is myself, riding a doubled wheeled unicycle (one wheel stacked on top of the other, meaning it’s a giraffe unicycle where you pedal backwards to go forward which totally messes with your natural reactions, making unicyclists fall much faster than normal). Very few unicyclists can ride one of these, but after a couple hours on one, you should be able to go forward on your own a little bit. Trying one of these unicycles for a while gives you that feeling just like the first time you learned to ride a unicycle.
I lost my double wheel unicycle in 2003, and probably haven’t ridden one since this video was taken in 2006 at the Mondofest here in St. Paul, MN.
For those that don’t have these videos yet, the $1.99 is a real bargain.
The double wheel is a trip! A friend brought one to our juggling/unicycling club last week and I spent 15 minutes falling off it. He was able to ride, turn, and mount it after a couple of hours which seemed pretty quick work to me.
