White Mountain Peak Videos — Bail Due To Hail

This video story was August 14, 2012 and was done on an aborted attempt to summit White Mountain Peak from the Owens River way down on the valley floor. Heavy wet hail moved in and the attempt was aborted just shy of 13,000' elevation.

See the Trek to the Summit of White Mountain Peak ride details.

Video details

These videos were all taken while cycling with the Olympus E-M5 strapped against my midsection with the Panasonic 8mm f/3.5 fisheye, so there is a lot of bouncing around. But this is precisely one reason to favor the E-M5; its powerful image stabilization actually makes the video watchable, though the bouncing can be extreme in some parts of the video.

Click each image to view the video. All videos are aup to 1080p.

White Mountains — “High Speed Descent to “Big Dip”

Sunny day, camera strapped on body on fast mountain bike descent on Moots Mooto X YBB 29er.

This was one of my first cycling video attempts, and the camera is unfortunately pointed too low for the latter half of the video, even with the 8mm Panasonic fisheye lens.
