Thread: GoPro Question?

    GoPro Question?

    It's been my first full year owning a GoPro. I've taken a look back at my videos, and have looked at other people's. I see that my footage is "bouncier" and choppier than others. This is because my head moves too much. So, should I keep my head straight and rigid? Or keep my neck soft and move with the undulating terrain? All answers appreciated.

    A lot of folks use stabilizing software - I use the software built into Youtube. I haven't found that I can do much to affect the image by changing how I hold my neck/head; I'm too busy skiing.

    Are you taking just sections of your video? Normally when I shoot I only take bits and pieces of what I have shot and use it together instead of the whole thing.

    Also - here's an important one - what field of view are you using? The widest angle (I think 170 degrees) is significantly less bouncy than narrower FOV. It's like a zoom lens - the more you zoom in the more your minor movements are amplified.

    Did you glue a mount to your helmet or are you using the head strap? I've always found the head mount to be fairly stable...been using a GoPro for 3-4 seasons.

    Don't worry about your head and neck while rolling the video. Focus on skiing. There is nothing you are going to be able to improve on by keeping your neck more rigid.

    Did you find your shots are bouncier than other GoPro videos you have seen? Post an example we could take a look at...?

    I think you should go to a qualified boot fitter and get a set of GoPro Stabilizer custom footbeds

    I use the head mount.
    Here's someone's video, with a constant flow and straight head. And awesome skiing.

    I imagine using the strap would be very bouncy.

    If you are using the glue mount, is your helmet tight enough?

    I have the original GoPro and aven't had any shaking issues. This is all footage straight out of the camera:
