    I embedded it in the wrong size smart guy and i dont know how to fix it. If you click the title it will take you to youtube and you can watch it in normal size.

    I made it through about 5 seconds, Don't know why but these kind of pov videos just don't cut it. Maybe if someone was shooting
    you from behind... or you were in Moab.......lol

    If you're looking for constructive criticism: the camera was pointed too low. I have no idea what was coming up ahead of you. No sense for speed. It looked like you were going a little slower and then a little faster.

    The trail looks fun. Smooth and a little rooty.

    Maybe if someone was shooting
    you from behind
    +1. Having another rider in the frame for reference is good.

    And just like photographs of terrain, video almost never looks as intense as it feels.

    Am I the only one who thinks that mounting the camera to the frame usually gives better results than mounting it to the chest or (perhaps) helmet?

    This was the first time I had ever used the chest mount. The speed issue is a problem with the trail. It is in no way made for mountain biking. Its in some woods right behind my house and it wasnt built and it is not maintained by mountain bikers. It doesnt have a good flow because of this but its right behind my house so its something to practice on and ride without having to drive somewhere!

    I have a helmet clip on my motocross helmet but not on my mtb helmet. I want to be able to use the chesty mount anyway. I just eed to figure out the right angle then it will look fine

    Helmet mount=worst place to put your camera. Chest mount=2nd worst.

    Get a mount that places it just to the side of your head tube above the fork. IMO the only place that gets a good angle without someone in the shot. Best is definitely to have a camera on a friend following you. It is also interesting to see the rider behind you.

    I actually think on your helmet is the best and least bouncy. your chest and bike are usually taking some impact, but your head, not so much. Considering, I would say my vid is fairly steady throughout.
