 I know I'm gonna get neg propped for this but I have to say that was the only Silvia film EVER that I have watched and found my mind wondering elsewhere. Some bits are killer, but needed more variety to keep my attention. Maybe I have ADHD... shit.

 Yeah thats because its all shot with a GoPro and all their other videos are shot with a DSLR where they put much more effort into filming..
  • + 63
 Pretty sure this a chest mounted dslr rather than a go pro.

 ^^um no, its a gopro
  • - 56
 yeah its definitely a gopro .the quality of a dslr would be 100x better

 @Oliscale...I'm pretty sure they still put effort into filming that....I can't do that with all my effort..
  • + 28
 If it was a GoPro, then why did it never auto expose in the darker sections? Riding with a DLSR strapped to my chest would scare me, but these guys go all out. I have a feeling it wasn't GoPro.

 Pause it at 4:12 or at any time when the rider's shadow is on the left. I'm guessing the wierd lumpy part of the shadow coming out of their chest is made by a DSLR.
  • + 11
 Agreed! ^^ Not a Gopro... 4:10 - 4:11 you can see the fisheye lens shadow on Matt's left arm and it's a fixed exposure the whole way through... Sick vid!!

 not a gopro silvia has never used a gopro for any of there shots always shot with a dslr karl hates gopro so they never use em
  • + 5
 I definitely get stoked / jealous and want to go shred when I see this video!!
  • + 4
 that edit made me wanna go shred! so fast, and the music got me pumped. and in answer to everyones comments, it is a chest mounted dslr, its tricky to set the shutter speed when your using it like a go pro, thats why the quality wasnt all there, but it still kicked ass compared to a go pro. also, they put effort into this, if you really focus on the video itself you can see all the work to make it flow well.
  • + 10
 Is the video faster than normal speed in any parts, or just i see it?
  • + 1
 You can stop arguing, you'd have to have mental issues to think that's a GoPro..
They would have borrowed this.. or made one for themselves by now.

 who f*cken cares what they used to film it! its a f*ck crazy awesome video! also name of song??

 My mind certainly wasn't wandering elsewhere... This vid just makes me wanna go ride Sun Peaks!

 i find myself wondering off videos not because the riding or video isnt good but the music is just rubbish.

 To all you people who think this sped up come to kamloops and try and keep up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • + 2
 To answer almost all questions here. I had buddy talk to Mr Matty Miles, and they used a chest-mounted DSLR for this video. Also I believe that some sections are sped up a little, but it is only to compensate for the fact that the wide angle lens use makes it look like they are going much slower then they are actually going.

 its a gopro + imovie and some of the sections have been sped up i think, the techy descents. Probs get negative props too but watch carefully @sevo
[Reply]

 that's pretty dangerous to mount a dslr on your chest. Imagine if you fall onto it!

 Hmm i doubt that was a Gopro..

 color correction can do alot, but still that looked amazing for a gopro or contour
  • + 2
 I'm thinking it was an SLR as the exposure never compensated for going into the woods where it was darker. Just my thoughts, could be wrong!

 lol guys silvia never lowers them self to gopro status its dslr in a backpac chest mounted
