I brought the wrong jersey. But if that’s the worst logistics mistake of the night, than I’ll take it.
The video cuts out the last five minutes or so, when all of the good stuff happens. It seems like when there are video issues, I’m always missing great stuff, like shootouts and frantic attempts to score by one team or another.
One end of a rink at any facility, for some reason or another, is not accessible for me to mount my camera on the glass. At the Ranch, it is one end that is blocked off and rented out for off-ice training. Usually I just put the camera on the other end, and get more of our offense, but this time I went for the side, like I did when I started using the GoPro. But this time, I actually used the zoom so that the video doesn’t look to be so far away.
Next, I’m going to do a test while another game is going on, and mount where I usually do, but this time I’m going to zoom the view to the opposite end, and see how much of the game I can get that way. Should be interesting! This footage here was all right, but I might just use this view as a last resort, and go back to the normal behind-the-net view in the future.
No video on this one. This is the first game I’ve missed uploading a video, but I did everything right; I charged the battery before I left, I watched the blinking “recording” LED on the camera as well as the count meter on the camera, both were fine when I mounted the camera… but as the game started, I noticed that the light had stopped. Not much I can do without stopping the game! This happened again when I tested it later, but since then all has been well.
It’s too bad, too, because it was a pretty good game!
