I only really put this up because I was bored, it wasn't the worst ever.

But I also wanted to see what the quality of the video was like.

Comments?

Quality is good, especially pleased with the sound.

Looks all right but why isn't it in 720p?
I uploaded it at lower res as I was in a hurry. I'll do the next one at higher res.

Looks to me like they misjudged it and panicked when they realised what they were doing.

The video quality looks fine to me in that clip - how does it cope with going into the light, or from light to dark and back (eg. bright sunny day with intermittent overhanging trees)? Those situations tend to be the real test of a video camera.

Looks as if that bit of the road used to be double white lines... presumably because of the bend and brow of a hill? (guessing from the video) but for some reason the council in their wisdom thought that motorist would actually be able to make the correct judgement themselves.

As long as I breathe, I attack.
Had a milk lorry overtake me pretty close today, it was not OMG close but it was close enough as with the cross wind i was a bit wobbly , his mate who was behind him however did a perfect overtake.

I always call out a loud "OI" and make a pushing out to the right motion when there's been a close overtake. That has a lasting effect on the regular drivers on my commute - not only does the offending driver get to realise, but also all the other drivers around. You almost never get a second close overtake from following vehicles after you've given the offending driver his/her feedback. ;)

Looks ok. I don't think I've really tested it yet in that department.
