    Cool video; especially coming from someone who has never been to SF.

    Now all we need is a camera mounted on a Model S driving through Lake Como, Italy.

    Even as someone who lives in the Bay Area, I can assure you that this is nice footage.
    I've been meaning to do something similar: I even bought an external microphone for my camera so I can record the sound in a spot sheltered from the wind... One of these days I will have some free time...

    Not so fond memories for me. I got my one and only speeding ticket in a little over 50 years of driving on the GG bridge in 1964. The toll booth operator said, "the officer would like you to pull over there." Hint: I was following the officer across the span, traveling at the same speed as was he. Not fair, but still one of the most scenic drives around. :rolleyes:

    Do it!!

    I'm no A/V expert but looking at the video again I was surprised by how little wind noise came through on the audio; not as bad compared to other clips where the wind just drowns everything else out. Isn't there noise canceling technology available to take care of that?

    I suspect they must have used a foam pad in front of their microphone to reduce noise. It is also possible that the particular location of the camera is in a low pressure zone mostly deprived of air flow... I'm not sure if electronic noise canceling technologies can deal with 45MPH wind noise, but I've been surprised by technology before!
