    Default Fall highlight video

    I tried to incorporate the suggestions made from my earlier highlight video post. More information on the opening screen and her name on every clip. I also moved away from so many fastballs and tried to show all her pitches.

    This was by far her best year in ERA and WHIP. She spent all last winter working on a curve ball which is probably now her best pitch. She picked up a screw ball in August with some success. She will work on more leg drive and her the screw ball this winter. We home school so she does not get to play high school ball. So when I say all winter, I mean January to the end of May.

    Props to the coach calling the pitches this past season. She (the coach) did a really good job

    GoPro things to work on:
    Don't leave the low light setting on all the time.

    In one of her last games, there was a sign in the usual spot I mount the GoPro so I had to move the camera higher. That showed so much more movement on the pitches than my normal position. Now it does not show vertical movement much, but I will definitely change up my camera location more next summer.

    I like the high angle, but have to admit I am generally too lazy to do it. I like to have it head high so I can make sure I remembered to start the recording. High angle helps in so many ways. Most of which, it often cuts the sky out of the shot which helps metering. Similarly, at night, it keeps the field lights out of the shot, which would otherwise cause star bursts.

    Good collection of moments.

    Nice job. That screwball thrown by lefties that hits that outer corner is the one pitch that's really gotten my DD this year. Very good pitch on righty batters!

    I wish I was tall enough to set my lynkspyder that high up. You really can see the movement of those pitches . Looked pretty cool
    I got your softballs

    Ah, so you are with Lynkspyder. I ended up removing the huge wing nut that adjusts the camera in and out and replaced it with a bolt and nut. [I left all the other wing nuts on since they are great] That is the only way I can get the camera close enough to the fence to generally avoid getting much of the fence in the shots. Of course that means I have to take a ratchet and socket with me every game. Great product, though.

    Yes, I am SpyderMan....which when you say out loud, is sort of dorky. :-)

    We originally started using that nut because the original GoPro housing had a deeper lens (when the case was on). We were afraid people would mount their cameras too far through the fence opening and get popped with a foul ball. We have continued it because it reduces complexity and cost for our customers. The higher bulk we can buy product, the better savings we can pass on.

    However, we (I) have been testing a ratchet lever out and am in the process of negotiating pricing with our vendor. Should be available soon as an optional add-on (with bundle discount) and in the replacement part store as a kit. Will let you know when it is ready (I just bumped the vendor for an update).
