Took a small ride today, and am still trying to figure out the angle for the Go Pro on the chest mount. I had it perfect, but I didn't tighten the go pro enough so over the course of the ride ( this video is the second half of the ride ), it started to tilt downward and show too much of the bike. But I felt the video was still decent.
I recorded it on a Go Pro Hero 2 ( 960p-48 ).
Using the chest mount is just trial and error I guess, for the correct angle
Also, I'm sorry if this video won't imbed in the post, I can never get it to, even though I do what everyone else does. So bear with me if there is only a link.
Wow, the video quality with that thing is through the roof!
One suggestion, can you pull the chest straps tighter? There was a bit of shaking going on. I've seen other GoPro chesty mount footage with 0 shakiness.
To learn the best angle, mount it up, go out in your yard or driveay, shoot a little, go in and watch...repeat.
Thanks! I imagine the quality would be better on the 1080p setting, but apparently this setting gives the best side to side and up and down view.
I imagine I can pull the straps tighter, it was pretty tight. I do have a some what indent in my chest, so the plate doesn't really have the entire chest to be flat against. I tried to counteract that by having the plate higher up on my chest.
I had the angle perfect at the start of the ride, but I didn't want to over tighten the go pro on the mount...I guess i had it too loose and the angle changed while riding.
The bike is nothing more then circles turning circles, It's the human motor that makes it elegant.
