There are exceptions, but 99% of footage looks dead dull IMO. Seen so many holidaymakers spend their evenings crowded around laptops in chalets, laboriously comparing hours of almost identical and very monotonous footage of themselves and their mates pottering down trails that look flat. WTF?
Kind of agree with you. I think most of my videos are kind of boring to an outsider. It's very self indulgent to publish biking videos of yourself on the internet, but I enjoy it, they get a few likes on youtube, so some others enjoy it, so I don't see a problem.
I agree the fisheye makes the trails look really tame too, but this is much better on the GoPro 3.
I also enjoy having a sneaky peak at other's videos on trails which I've ridden or will ride to see how it is (or isn't in some cases) done.
