    Very nice write up and pictures. Got to love Colorado and the images we have here. Love to see what you would run at sea level. Think you might need a cage.

    Wink Tripod that Camera

    The Videos are well compiled, though you need to invest in a Tripod... either that or all of your shots will look like this By any means, you do have good shots with the camera on the ground. Hit Ebay for a good tripod. Aminova is a brand I went with... quality and low price on Ebay.

    They aren't supposed to be professional videos.
    Tripod used for some things though.
