    how to get blur/speed effect feom pov camera?

    can anyone give me some ptrs on how to get this kind of speed/blur effect from a gopro? I'm guessing I need to be in photo mode instead of video?

    I was very successful googling for this info!

    I have a DSLR with a super wide lens and a chest harness, and that's how I get those shots.

    Can't imagine how to do it with a go pro, since you don't have manual control.

    Shutter priority and you need to track and move with the subject.

    You don't need a 'proper' camera to take blur shots. In fact, even 'proper' cameras can be limited in their ability to take a blur shot.

    That doesn't stop anyone. If any camera will not let you run a long enough shutter to get a blur photo, the fix is to add a neutral density (ND) filter. ND filters block a percentage of light getting to the sensor, forcing the camera to hold the shutter open longer to get enough light for a properly exposed image.

    I believe gopro software lets you make a blur shot from video, but it's not going to be close to as good as a true blur photo. Probably a much better tool in one of the professional photo/video tools.

    The biggest trick with action blur is keeping the subject centered. Helps to have the camera attached to the subject, but not impossible to get good blur shots with a bit of practice.
    I will suffer no butt-hurt fools!

    This is an easy one. This can be achieve with a little luck in video or photo mode. In video mode just grab a frame using VLC media player.

    I photo mode, you just need to be in some situation like the one in the photo, the lighting is the key.
