I decided to test my GoPro Hero 3 (Silver Edition) at night. I used my Cygolite TridenX 1100 on the handlebar and a Cygolite Miticross 480 OSP on my helmet. I ran both at max beem for the video.
This was recorded in the Boulder, Colorado area.
Generally I am very pleased with the TridenX 1100. I think it is an awesome light (especially with the Xtra battery that I have) and I don't notice hotspots with it, just a continuous fill of light. With the GoPro it is interesting that this picks up a hotspot in the trail that I do not notice with my eyes.
I think in the future I will angle up the TridenX a bit to reduce the effect of the "hotspot" overexposing in the video. I may also try changing the exposure setting on the GoPro to be center spot and see how that works.
If you have any other tips on how to improve night-time video recording, I'd love to know. Thanks.
