    Testing Angles - GoProHD

    Hey all,

    Played around with some different mounting using the helmet strap mounted to the frame. Came out with some interesting angles! Enjoy,

    Phil,

    Love the video. I enjoyed the multiple camera angels, I try to work this into videos I've done too. I like your "up shot", the shot looking up through the handle bars at your face / head. The static mount two, three or four minute video that we often see can get long feeling. With multiple angles and good editing (which you also have here, in my opinion), you can keep the pace moving. Anyway, great video. Oh, and had up pull on a sweatshirt just to watch, man that just looks cold!

    I was going to say something about that one too, but thought I'd better leave that one alone!

    Good stuff - what kind of mount do you use for the view shooting into the front tire?

    which one?!

    I should have taken a photo of the mounting setup... basically it was the helmet strap mounted to the downtube pointed sideways.

    I'll make a note to do that next time I'm out

    cheers

    Where the hell is the trail!

    I liked the video and the different angles. The "looking up" angle was unique, the trees really made it. There's a lot of time and effort that goes in to making these silly little videos, but I enjoy it too.

    Also, kudos to GoPro, I love that camera

    Great Video
    Love all the angles. Any chance you could post up some pic's of where you mount the Gopro on your bike? And are you just using the helmet mount.
