A perfect day out :D . Never been up the Ben in the snow properly - looks well worth it on a day like this. Loved the inversion shot on the way down too.

Brilliant report and what a video, got a cracking day for that but it looked very exposed and scary on the ridge part. Want to do this route when I do Ben Nevis now. Was it filmed using a gopro because the video is great quality.

Yes go pro it was. Chest mounted. I think Campbell's said it was 780 as the higher resolution was too big for downloading. Cheers

It's a go pro hero 3 white.
I chose to make 780p vs 1080p as it was 1gb vs 3gb and I didn't know what space people had.
I like the look of the hero 4 silver.

Was looking at the silver not too long ago, liked the fact it had the built in LCD panel which I would regard as a necessity. My brother has an older gopro 2 and the videos it produces are really good and they are getting better all the time. Some cracking videos being turned out on this site now. :clap:
