Our Vidometer app has reached version 3.2 in just a little over 2 years. This video recording app can record all your riding data like GPS, speed, altitude, G force and more, overlaying all this info over street and satellite maps. During this time we have made considerable improvements like theme map overlays and social sharing on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Youtube. Now we’ve made it even better in version 3.2.
High Framerate Recording
Now with version 3.2 we are excited to offer high framerate recordings for iOS compatible devices! That’s right, you can now record at 60, 120 or even 240fps for super smooth slow mo! Highframe rate recording is supported all the way back to the iPhone 4s. The app figures out automatically the highest recordable framerate available based on what hardware it detects.
Touch to Focus and Set Exposure
Vidometer 3.2 also gives you touch control over focus and exposure. Manually expose and focus exactly where you want.
Auto Video Stabilization
As with our previous update Vidometer helps you avoid jerky video by including built in auto video stabilization for smoother action videos.
Built In Power Save Mode
Save on precious battery life with our smart power save mode. Less trips to the charger is always a good thing.
Of course Vidometer includes useful features like these as well:
-Supports Bluetooth Audio; Listen to your music library while you record
-Use the app as a Dashcam while driving
-Use the app in Aviation applications
So what are you waiting for? If you can run iOS8 you can use the latest and greatest version of Vidometer.

Hitcase family member Andrew Taylor just posted episode 4 of Seasons of Shred where he and the Seasons of Shred crew rip down the trails of The Dolomites in Italy. A great variety of terrain from rocky to forest make for a challenging ride. Toss in some awe inspiring scenery and you see why this is a MTB dream spot.

Another week, another top athlete has signed on to Hitcase. Things are going to get crowded at the Hitcase family table this Christmas. We are stoked to have award winning freeskier Sean Pettit join us. Surprisingly young, even for an X athlete, Sean was signed as a Red Bull Athlete at 13. Since then Sean has been racking up powder awards and accolades non stop.
One of the top freeskiers in the industry, Sean’s innovative and vibrant style can put a smile on anyone’s face because it doesn’t take much to recognize the the magnitude of what he will mean for the future of this sport.
Look for some wild ski footage from Sean’s Hitcase real soon.
The next video in our Tips and Tricks series will focus on resizing your content for Instagram. We’ll show you a couple of our favourite apps that will allow you to keep the aspect ratios of your original photo or video.
Watch for it around Wednesday Dec. 10th.
Be sure to see our previous Tips and Tricks videos on our Youtube channel.

Congratulations to Geoff Brown for joining the Hitcase team! Geoff is a big hitter, an amazing backcountry snowboarder from Whistler. Geoff has been rockin Hitcase for about a year now after fellow snowboarder Trevor Karl gave him a Hitcase.
Geoff has been a fan of Hitcase since that initial introduction and we have been looking forward to working together since that time. We are so pumped to have such a stoker and extremely talented athlete on the team.
For Geoff, the Hitcase just makes sense for what he does. He is a mad social media guy, with a Hitcase he no longer needs to use his action camera and download videos before uploading, he can upload directly from his iPhone to his Instagram and other social media accounts.
Geoff has already made a custom Hitcase mount for capturing over the shoulder pov videos like the example above. Killing it!!!
Glad to have you onboard Geoff. We can’t wait to see all your adventures through the Hitcase lens.
Check out Geoff’s site and follow him.
