    Im not sure if it’s rolling shutter, software IS or what, but there’s some really distracting distortion going on which makes this difficult to watch.

    It has to be some sort of software that is correcting for the lens distortion. I’m pretty sure that either it’s a GoPro2 and onboard software, might explain why it is so slow, or just a computer program that’s doing it.

    Sorry, a few seconds into the hike and I started feeling sick with the Distortion.

     Looks like it might be a combination of rolling shutter, software IS, and fisheye lens. As the dog moves around, the software IS is stabilizing it by moving a cropped frame over the (fisheye) video. This might explain why we see the weird distortion. Rolling shutter would just add to it.

    I thought it was great and loved the music.  I wasn’t watching for distortion so I didn’t see it.  I certainly didn’t feel sick from it.

    The shot of the owner framed by his dog’s ears around 1:14 is brilliant.

    I think many of you are WAY over thinking this video. I was chuckling through the whole thing. Brilliant.

    LOVED this! I often thought what a CorgiCam would look like… the lens is pretty wide it almost made it look like a Steadicam. I think the wide lens is what makes that slight distortion when there’s a little movement. I’m going to link to the video from the Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club of Southern California… they’ll just love this.
