does anyone have any suggestions on those "flip" video cameras? I want something ultra cheap and light.
08.27.08 - 4:58 pm
And allow me to add yet another shameless plug for "mr rollers east to the beach".
We'll have you there in time to see and take pictures of the finish.
08.27.08 - 7:09 pm
Starting to get a BUNCH of emails! Awesome!
A lot of still photographers are offering their services which is rad!
Any video peeps out there willing to actually do the race (at their own pace, of course) and get "Follow Cam" style of the race? This will be the "Money Shot" if ya know what I mean!

Barleye has one and loves it. I'm sure he'll post here later.

I have the 60 minute FLIP VIDEO ULTRA SERIES and it's really good. you can get it for $122 out the door on amazon right now. I picked the free shipping and it arrived in 2 days...must have shipped from california. anyhow, it's easy to use. records 60 minutes....usb connection to computer, excellent video editing...you can add your own music as a background, the software included uploads your videos straight to your youtube account for you....i recommend it.
they have a new MINO SERIES that has an internal lithium battery that recharges when hooked up to usb. the ultra series i have runs on AA batteries.
here's the amazon link:
all my non music videos were shot with my flip:

Will you be joining TEAM CAMERA with your Flip?
08.28.08 - 9:40 am
you can buy the flip cameras on www.zappos.com (yes the shoe site) and they do FREE overnight shipping. i love them.

I'm happy to help out. But my camera is sort of a piece of shite. If anyone can lend me a bike mount and a video cam or still cam with time lapse function, I could do the following thing.
08.28.08 - 1:24 pm
I'll call you tonight... I might have a very interesting type of camera for you to use! :)
08.28.08 - 1:47 pm
I plan on joining Mr. Rollers' ride.
08.28.08 - 1:52 pm
is there anyone out there who would be down to focus a video camera on the finish line to capture all the finishers. basically just put a tri-pod and set and forget it. last year there was so much chaos we couldnt tell anything past 3rd place....... free shirts and shit for anyone who is down.
08.28.08 - 1:56 pm
Incentives! I like!
Nah, but I have a tripod and a camera we can use at the finishline. What I need is someone to man (or woman) it.
Job Qualifications: Must now how to push record and GUARD CAMERA WITH LIFE.
08.28.08 - 2:24 pm
i want in!
i hope someone got my e-mail.
08.28.08 - 2:43 pm
I'll probably join Mr. Rollers as well.
Leetard, I have experience guarding cameras with my life. (Heh heh) If you haven't found anyone I'd be happy to help.
08.28.08 - 6:31 pm
I got your email! Gracias!

Is there a cash payout for the winner for team camera?
I will be running a helmet cam in the lead pack!
08.29.08 - 12:54 pm
Cash Payout? Hell yeah!
Except replace "cash" with "high"
and "payout" with "fives"
08.29.08 - 1:23 pm

YOU ARE NOW ONE OF TEAM CAMERA!
08.29.08 - 3:36 pm
im sick and shouldnt be riding fast in the august heat but ill take some pictures for sure.
08.29.08 - 7:49 pm
We NEED, ABOSOLUTELY F'N NEED A CAMERA/TRIPOD AT THE FINISH LINE!!
I have both, but just in case I can't get to the finish before the racers do, I don't wanna chance it. We've got really good coverage, I just need some one to 100% confirm that they can shoot the finish line.
08.30.08 - 6:39 pm
If no one else can confirm shooting the finish line, I will do it fer sure, give me call before noon if you need me. Or else I will be videoing at Mustache bridge.
08.30.08 - 8:13 pm
yes, i be rolling w mrRollers and a mo bring my v-cam just in case
08.30.08 - 10:23 pm
I can stick with and operate someone's video camera at the finish. I will be there with my still camera, and stand post for the video photo finishes. I have extra tripods if I need to bring one, I can. Feel free to call me! Gern 310-466-7844
08.31.08 - 10:21 am
i'll have a camera mounted on my seatpost--> facing the rear..
08.31.08 - 10:52 am
That sounds really cool. Can you take a picture of it? I wanna see what it looks like! :)
08.31.08 - 11:07 am
OH MAN!!! So Excited too!!!
I'm leaving now for the start... see ya sucka's there!
We have really good coverage thanks to everyone who is volunteering! Look for me at Dockwiler, I'll be wearing a white basketball-style jersey with a yellow Bicykillers sticker on my hat, or call me at
ate one ate 7 three one too 9 oh three
08.31.08 - 11:23 am
So I was going to work up a graphic for "Brigada Kino" in a Russian Constructivist style and it was going to be super badass. But my laziness took over and I did nothing of the sort. Oh, well.
Leaving now for Tang's.......
08.31.08 - 12:50 pm
That was fun! Kinda wish I hadn't ducked into a parking lot after we ran the red right in front of the cop in Culver City. I guess I was rolling with the 2nd and 3rd place teams at that point. Would've been nice to try to finish with them. Oh, well....
08.31.08 - 8:24 pm
Or, actually, now that I think about it, maybe I had switched which teams I was following by then. I don't know. It doesn't matter...... I'm tired. Nap time?
08.31.08 - 8:38 pm
Thanks to everyone who helped with Team Camera!!! We got tons of footage can't wait to start editing! Be on the lookout!
Thanks again to everyone! Thanks to Wolfpack, the racers, and everyone!
08.31.08 - 9:36 pm

09.1.08 - 12:04 pm
THANKYOU PAUL for the reverse angle footage! SICK!
09.3.08 - 7:09 pm
BUUUMPITY BUMP! The avenue is packed!
Join TEAM CAMERA if you want to WIN!
06.25.09 - 8:35 am
Times like these I wish I had a digital SLR just for quick on the spot snap shots. -_- Can I still show up and shoot with film? lol.
06.25.09 - 4:26 pm
I will be at the finish line with my DSLR.
We need a video camera or 3 if we can get them for the finish line (if that isnt already arranged). One for the finish line, one for the approach, and one for the celebration.
I don't have video camera or I would be all over it.
I have said it over and over and over, but I have 3 FRS (walkie-talkie) radios for use of this race. Nobody has responded to my post (or in person talks) about this, or about my willingness to show up at 9 am to get a fire pit or 2 at the beach. Little bit of communication might be in order.....
I am willing to put in work for this event, so let me know what else I can do.

If Roadblock hasn't gotten to you yet, I'll let you know that it would be SUPER RAD if you went and secured the PIT and beach space for the race! Get there early and bring a book or sumthin! Walkie talkies are moot, (haha, never used that word except for singing Jesse's Girl at karaoke!) very little banter is needed, just a text message or quick call to let everyone know the race has started, then you got about 40-50 minutes until folks start showing up at then end.
my number and email are on the top post!

My little sister's in town, she's shooting digital stills. She'd like to know if she can join Team Camera for this year's race- let me know what's up with that & where I should have her.
