    Headlamp and POV footage

    Hi,

    I'm trying to capture POV footage while riding with headlamp. Right now I'm using a Magicshine MJ-880. My handlebar light is broken so I will get a new one. But does anyone have any suggestion on how I can improve? or what light would be good for the purpose..

    That's actually pretty good already. I'm no camera expert, but I think one of the issues with filming at night is that most action cameras are not designed to use low, or no light. Even though my cam has a "low light" setting, it still does not cut it very well for no light, like at night. You could try a handlebar light with a really wide flood pattern and that may open up a little of the peripheral. You'll need quite a few lumens though. If you're attempting to emulate some of the professionally done videos of riders at night, they use a LOT more equipment, cameras, etc...

    I have been thinking about something with a wide flood pattern.. I have been looking at MS-908 (I can buy those locally and don't have to order).. Front bike lights | Magicshine MJ-908 8000 lumens bike light combo | MagicshineUK

    You should use a better chestmount (Stuntman Chestmount) or maybe even get a gimbal like I did:
    MTB Nightride (Test) Xiaomi Yi2 + and two bikelights at different framerates and resolutions
