Smile for the camera

I am not a big fan of smarty-pants  who like to tell  “I-told-you-so”. Like my boss who tells me I am better off working than chasing some fish that might or might not be there (unfortunately he has been battling a 1000 this fall). So what I am about to tell you, I am doing it with mixed feeling…if for no other reason than it happened so fast…

I wrote few times over the last year that I can envision the day when a live video feed will be streamed right from the Montauk Rocks  or Cape Canal, or Cutty, or Block, or your honey hole, live onto the internet. In REAL TIME. Oh what a joy to finally be catching a fish or scratching your balls on a rock in a wetsuit, not knowing you are broadcasted live onto the internet. Hook in a hand, wiping your ass with a sock, picking bugger out of your nose, braking a rod on a cast or just gazing after that cute jogger that just ran by, all watched live by your wife and kids

The day of reckoning is here.


From Go Pro’s this morning note

Wi-Fi-enable your HD HERO2 or original HD HERO camera with the Wi-Fi BacPac™ and Wi-Fi Remote.

The Wi-Fi BacPac attaches to your HD HERO2 camera to enable long range video remote control via the Wi-Fi Remote or a smartphone / tablet / computer running a free GoPro App. Waterproof and durable, the Wi-Fi Remote enables complete control of up to 50 HD HERO2 cameras at a time.

When paired with the Wi-Fi BacPac, the HD HERO2 also supports live video streaming and remote control via smart-devices, computers, and the Web wherever Wi-Fi or a mobile hotspot is present. Record one video stream to your HD HERO2′s SD card while sending a second video stream via Wi-Fi to your smart-device, computer or the Web.

The original HD HERO is compatible with the Wi-Fi BacPac and Wi-Fi Remote with support for remote control functions only. Video streaming is not available on the original HD HERO camera
