- Using trakAxPC with Outdoor Footage
With the growing popularity in inexpensive, pocket-sized and robust camcorders such as the GoPro HD and Kodak Zi8, more and more people are beginning to capture their outdoor adventures and activities. Be it extreme sports, hiking & camping, outdoor fishing, skiing, why not grab a camcorder and create a video diary/journal of your adventure to share with family and friends. Some of our users are doing just that and these videos really capture the excitement and thrill one can experience by being adventurous in the outdoors and in the wild.
In these first videos, our user “Duffman8699” records himself dirt biking at Milestone Ranch MX Park in Riverside, CA and snowboarding at Snow Summit and Bear Mountain, in Big Bear, CA.. He used a GoPro in both cases to record the footage and edited it with trakAxPC Pro. The quality is superb and you really feel the sensation and buzz one gets from riding a powerful motorbike and the freedom of skiing down a mountainside.

In these next videos, our users, Yakass and Jay Lovell, have captured their journeys into the wide open ocean in Australia and the wilderness of Canada. The first video is a collection of some of Yakass’s shark encounters while kayak fishing, including various catches as well as a seriously close brush with a great white. Scary stuff.
Jay Lovell, who is a new users and is his first video, really captures the beauty of the outdoors with amazing shots of the wildlife and surrounding wilderness. We get to see nature in it’s true light, as well as animals like the black bear and mouse in their natural habitat. Although I think I would be a little nervous with bears and snakes so close to my camp site.
Is that all done with trakAx? Stunning! Hero2, here I come!
Hey Outdoor Freak,
Yes, all the footage you see here was edited with trakAxPC.
I hope this helps,
I am lucky that I found your blog. I am actually planning to buy a new a camcorder for the next school outing. The videos that you have posted are great.
Very high quality filming and editing. That camera looks very good for outdoor use.
Nice videos! Good to watch. The shark video brings back bad memories though. One of our friends got attacked by a bullshark here in Australia. Fortunately, he got away with some scars on his leg…
