I think it's trying to focus on the frame, but it's too close to the lens so that's as good as it can do.    I think bar or chest mounted would work better.

Hmm not any better, and the frame is far enough out of shot you'd think.    maybe the camera is busted? :-\

What camera are you using?

If it's a gopro, this sought of blurred image can happen if you are using the non ventilated back plate or if its really humid, it causes the casing to form condensation on the inside because of the heat of the battery which then fogs up the inside lense.

It could also be confused as to what to focus on, clean the lense really well and update the firmware.

If it's not a gopro I'm not sure what to say  :)

Maybe the guy behind you was too sloooow and the camera couldn't focus on him! Lol

If he was going slow wouldn't that give the camera more time to focus?  ???

Looks like it wasn't focused to start with Andy.  My thinking is it was trying to focus on the bike, rather than the land around it and the bike was too close to the lens.  You'd be better off putting the camera on your helmet so it's not got anything right in front of it.  I get that with my camera if I'm trying to photograph something that is too close to the camera.

I think you are right, i will put it on my helmet tomorrow, make sure it still focuses (it does on my walk around the house). i am attempting to get the angle much lower, because when it is on your helmet it smooths the trail out :(

...and makes my riding look very unimpressive  :(

Does anyone know what i am doing wrong with 'embeding' the videos?

What about slinging it under the bars?  If you get keep it out of the way of the tire

Putting the camera on your body rather than the bike seems to yield the best results, because the body should be moving less than the bike is (relatively speaking).
The chest mounted cams seem to work the best as they are naturally pointed towards the  angle you want to be capturing  i.e. down and forward at the next 10m of trail. Also not susceptible to rapid head movement to look down the trail etc as the helmet mounted ones are. Must look like a right tit wearing one though hehe 

Sorry Andy, cant do anything about your unimpressive riding though...   ;D
