Hey man nice vid. I ride Patapsco a good bit too. I'm new in the forum and I just picked up a Go Pro Hero 3 and I was looking for suggestions on mounting it for MTB for the first time....looks like you have the chest mount? The video quality is pretty good- do you think that's the best way to go? And did you get yours from Go Pro? Thanks!
I find roots and rocks here in our area to make video really shaky, I prefer the chest mount because that's probably the area of my body that doesn't shake as much as my head, I also have a handlebar mount, that I like to put on the seat post facing back, pretty good video with it too, specially if someone is following you. I got the chesty from Ebay for $40 (S$H included), but it's the original one.
Oh also, I mounted the camera upside down on the chesty, and tilted up a bit, that way you get more video of the scenery, rather than your bike.
Okay cool. Thanks for the advice. I've seen a lot of them on the seat post...is that an actual seat post mount or just one of the adhesive's it came with and did you buy extras of those? Any beginners tips would be a great help (what res/fps to shoot in)...I'm really stoked to shoot some video but kind of over whelmed with all of the options I have...thanks again.
Perfect thanks! Let me know if you ever want to ride. Always down to ride Arundel, Rosaryville, Patapsco, etc. Also, if you haven't been yet, I highly recommend checking out the Baltimore Bike Party on the last Friday of every month (4/26 this month) at 7 at the Washington Monument....pure madness.
I tried making this video look just as if it were multiple cameras in some parts, but it was only one lol. I have a buddy as well that lets me borrow his from time to time, and its true, its cooler with more camera angles.
Great vid! If you would have asked me a few months ago if I ever wanted a Gopro I would have said I'm not interested. Now I must say, it's a lot of fun!!!
What did you use to make your intro? I haven't settled on an editing program yet. Did my first two with Movie Maker. It was really easy to use but lacking features I wanted. I downloaded Cyberlink and have been tinkering with it, but think I may want to check our the adobe product.
For awesome title sequences, Adobe After Effects is the way to go , many free templates available to download from youtube and other places, also check out videocopilot.net for great tutorials on learning more of the software.
Hey guys. Testing my Go Pro before riding tomorrow. Got the camera and settings no prob and took some videos but is there a way to import your videos into the GoPro editor without the Bac Pac? Thanks for the help!
