    This guy is driving the vehicle and manning the camera? He should be in jail, not Youtube.

  • I think this is flame bate (God I hope it is), but I will bite.

    People in U.S. of A used to be able to get away with this wild reckless kind of behavior. I remember traveling in the bed of a pickup, riding a bicycle w/o a safety helmet, and drinking water straight from the garden hose totally oblivious to saliva borne pathogens deposited by the kid before me. Those crazy days are gone forever. Now that we are growing up, and becoming a more civilized society, I realize that my parents subjected me to chi

      In the more civilized world, people should be prevented from making dangerous choices, for themselves, and those around them.

      Sometimes they should. I don't want to be on the same roads as a drunk driver. Do you?

        I guess, I think people should be held accountable for their actions regardless of the circumstances, and not because of them.

        Meaning that if someone is drinking and driving or texting and driving, or talking to their wife and driving, and they get into an accident and kill someone, the punishment should be the same.

        You and I both may think the person texting and driving is an a$$hole, but in a free society, that person has that right. Now if they get into an accident, it is a different situation. They sho

    • and what's up with the fucked up aspect ratio of the video? what sort of crazy-ass camera records in PORTRAIT?
      • Any camera without a 1:1 aspect ratio.
        • You did not read my question? Have you used a camera that records in 1:1? Or one that records in a portrait orientation? Asking because i have not. Not my handycam, not my phone, not my p&s nikon.
          • If the person holding it was doing so sideways it would. They likely just corrected it w/ post-processing. People do it all the time with still cameras. Heck many digital still cameras now have sensors that automatically turn the image when taking a picture like that. Having someone try it on a video camera isn't THAT odd.

            • my phone and camera both turn images the right way, but NEVER videos. i really haven't seen one that does it. if someone knows such a phone/camera please tell me so i won't buy.
              thsnks in advance.

                My old Sony-Ericsson w810i turned it.

                Pretty sure my Nikon D90 does it too, haven't tried though, video isn't that interesting.

                • i have a w810i here with me, it does not rotate even pictures automatically because it does not have an accelerometer. There is no option to rotate video that i can find. My c510 turns pictures the right way but not videos. Anyway one replier has written that iphone records in portrait. So it must be that.
          • I read it just fine - and no, I've never used a 1:1 format.
            Look at how you're holding your camera/phone right now. Now rotate the camera 90degrees in either direction - voila!
            Many times you need to re-rotate it on the computer after transfer as many softwares ignore EXIF rotation (where available).
