I actually have that exact setup, playsport and gorilla pod, but I got the ghetto version of the gorilla pod from best buy.  It works, but it's starting to get loose and not hold its shape really well.

ah. glad you gave that feedback, i was going to buy one at best buy.. damn i dno which one to get.. i need one i can wrap around trees and on the edges of backboards/on top of fences.

sheeeeeeeeeeit.

Random update here: But the Kodak ZI8 that I use and got for $100ish that is MSRP $180 is currently $100 off at OfficeMax for $80. I know a lot of people here want to get a decent camera to record workouts/dunks so this is a MAJOR steal right now. Just thought I'd post it up for anyone interested.

That is a nice camera. Gotta wonder how much of it is the lenses used as well though.

hah nice!!!!!

what phone do you have now, prior to s7 edge?

I was thinking edge but.. after re-thinking it, i might just go with galaxy s7.. because I know for sure im going to drop that thing at some point, and the edge screen is harder to replace.. stuff like that.. plus it's just a bit cheaper, whatever. I think the carrier will cover the s7 somewhat too, unlike s7 edge.. they don't cover the s7 edge at all (metro pcs).

i might go to the store again tomorrow and ask them some questions, and if everything makes sense, pick up the s7.

the only last question is, whether i really want it unlocked or not.. i hate the idea of having the carrier's garbage junk software on my phone. just bothers me really bad.. but they don't cover it if it's unlocked.. so i dno.. maybe just put up with it for now and eventually get an unlocked s7 edge.. that probably makes more sense.

ok i talked myself into a possible solution.

man im bout to pass out.. sdoksdpokdspgoksd

when are you going to post some vert/sprint footage with your s7 edge??? :F :F :F  :ninja:

gn!

I have the HTC one M7 for the last ~3 years. It's a great phone but, just like its owner, age caught up with it.

Here you get them unlocked with 2 years warranty, price for s7 edge is around 600€ ( ~670$ ).

720p/240fps video huh? man, i love the idea, but my sub-30'' jumping those days doesn't qualify for it.   :P

ya, me2. i have some huawei, it's such garbage though.. extremely slow. I don't do much with my phone so it's not a problem.... but since i'm going to be doing more with it soon, definitely need a major upgrade.

720p/240fps = :o  :wowthatwasnutswtf:

well vert needs age-grading just like anything else.. eventually 25" vert will be amazing, when we're 50. ;f

pc!

That is true of course, but I can't compromise with it. I don't want to 'amazing for my age' but mediocre. I want to be above average, where average is not my age average of course, i mean the average bball playing guy in his mid 20s that just doesn't train for vert. That's how i did it anyway, started at 33y.o. with 25'' RVJ, got to 35'' at 37, had all the average joes at the bball court dropping their jaws whenever i got a good jump in. Had random opponents asking my teammates how i do it, if i was a former track&field athlete etc. And that was not at my prime, it was 10 years after my prime, i was a rusty old fart already. I can't compromise with sub 30s now. So 30+ or no vid.
But hey, no worries, i'll get there so you'll get the vid  ;)  :highfive:  :ibjumping:
