GoPro Media Team Tips and Tricks: How to Shoot a GoPro Course Preview (Ep 22)

Appearances: Rush Sturges, GoPro Media Team
Vertical: GoPro Media Team
Topics: Video Production, Video Modes, Shooting Tips

In the midst of GoPro Mountain Games in Vail, Colorado, Product Education team member Christopher Farro stops to give us some insight on what it takes to make a broadcast-ready GoPro course preview. After choosing an epic location – Steep Creek in Colorado – the most important thing is to ensure that you have the proper license agreements and permits to shoot your course preview. In this case, we have appearances from GoPro Production Artist, Nate Lee and GoPro Athlete, Rush Sturges.

Nate clues us in on how to get the best shots and angles of our athlete. For any POV shots that we are taking, Nate recommends 1440p/48fps, which gives us an opportunity to slow down the shots in post-production. Nate also walks us through prepping our cameras for water usage – using Floaty BacPacs and Camera Tethers for added security, and licking the lens prior to usage to help the water bead off of the lens.

After sending the selected athlete out on the course and capturing epic footage, it’s time to gather all of your footage and start editing! Make sure you have all of the licenses for your music, and then your Course Preview is finished!

Shooting your own epic course preview? Check out these versatile mounts and accessories at –

For more insight on capturing the best footage out on the course, dig deeper into this Tips and Tricks series on YouTube to learn how to maximize your GoPro cameras and products.

As always, happy capturing!

Better Audio For Your Go Pro Action Footage • The Duke of MTB

I finally found a great audio solution for my MTB videos and lucky for you, I'm going to share my findings.
Watch to the end to find out the secret sauce that makes the sound pop.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

UPDATE: Since this video, I've learned a lot more. I can't say that this video is still relevant. Now I use a Tascam DR-10l with the PowerDewise Mic, but only when using a 360 cam or any other cam with horrible audio. Otherwise, I use the audio straight from the GoPro(as of this writing, i use a GoPro 7), but with some very minor tweaks.

Why I like the Hero Session

Hero Session:

Lately I’ve been trying to streamline my camera gear. Although it’s nice to get a bunch of angles and make everything look cinematic, sometimes it’s more important to be nimble. This is the reason I decided to buy the GoPro Hero 4 Session. Today, we’ll surgically recess this Hero Session into my forehead. I’m tracing the shape of the session for a precise cut. Well, not exactly.

The real plan is to hide it under my helmet visor. If you have a GoPro or almost any action camera for that matter, you probably have some of these little mounts. Back when I used to work on cars for a living, we had a trick to make 3M tape stick better. Heat it up. You can carefully apply heat with a hair dryer or even a lighter. When it’s tacky and bubbling, mount it to a clean surface and hold it there until it cools. Good luck removing it.

Using this method, I mounted my Session to the underside of this visor. The camera is so light that I barely even notice it’s there. I can just have this with me all the time and never miss a shot again.

Like GoPro’s other cameras, the Session has Quick Capture, which means that pushing the record button activates the camera from an off state. Another push of the button stops the recording and turns the camera off. By only recording what I need, I’ve been able to stretch the battery well beyond a full day of shooting. The video quality is pretty good and surprisingly stable.

So I’m pretty happy with my purchase, and loving the camera, but I did notice something pretty surprising…

My Hero Black fits in the same exact spot on this helmet, maybe even better. I weighed these cameras and was surprised to find that they’re identical. I started second guessing myself, and weighed them again with the helmet, only to obtain the same result. So did I waste my money? If it’s not smaller or lighter, what am I gaining?

Well for one it’s cheaper. When this camera first hit the shelves it was $400, which is just absurd. Now that it’s only $200, it’s actually one of the most affordable GoPro cameras available. It’s not as powerful as the Silver or the Black, but it still does shoot at 60 frames per second, and has Superview mode for nice first person shots.

Another great thing about the Session is that it’s water resistant. While water resistance isn’t usually important to me, it’s nice to know that my equipment will survive the mud or the rain. The Hero Black requires this water resistant housing, which makes it crazy heavy, and super dorky looking. The Session is black on all sides, and blends in with my equipment. Since I do a lot of third person shooting, a big old GoPro sticking off the top of my head would sort of ruin the shot.

The session also has this smooth glass across the front which allows you to just wipe it off with your shirt.

Over the weekend, I used my Session and a headstrap to go out into the cruise port as the ships were leaving. You see that dot right there? That’s me. As the ships pass the water gets sucked out of the channel. I was in up to my neck before. As soon as the ship exits the channel, the water comes rushing back in, which is freakin awesome. I’m getting a terrible idea for bike video right now, but we’ll just have to wait and see how that pans out. In any case, it was really cool to be able to capture this moment with a camera so small and light.

By always having this indestructible little cube on me, I’m hoping to get a lot more shots that I would have otherwise missed. I’m liking the Hero Session.

Cheap camera gear for mountain bike videos

This is the first of a series of videos about making videos. We'll go over everything I use to make my YouTube videos on a shoestring budget, including camera gear, accessories, and software.

Samsung NX300 Camera:
GoPro Hero Camera:
Basic Tripod:
All my accessories:

In this video we go over my camera gear. The Samsung NX300 is a mirrorless detachable lens camera, which basically means it's a cheap version of an SLR. The primary purpose of this camera is to take pictures, but I use it for video because it happens to look really nice. At 60 frames per second at 1080P, I can actually get some damn good footage from this.

The cheapest GoPro Hero made still has a really nice picture. At 30 frames per second at 1080P, it's not the slow motion workhorse that the more expensive versions are, but it still has a nice wide angle lens and crisp video. I use this as a B camera for getting a shot at a different angle.

The iPhone 6+ (and many other cameras from both Apple and Android) is capable of some really good video. The iPhone can shoot at 240 frames per second at 720P, which is good enough for doing super slow mo shots in YouTube videos. For normal cinematography, the iPhone has 60 frames per second at 1080P, which is also not to shabby.

BEST GOPRO HERO 7 SETUP FOR MTB!! - No gimbals required!

Everything you need to know about the GoPro hero 7 Hypersmooth stabilization for Mountain biking. This is a mountain biker's review of GoPro's Hypersmooth Stabilization and the Hero 7 audio why I think you no longer need a gimbal for stable mountain bike footage. Personally, I think the GoPro Hero 7 black Hyper smooth EIS Stabilization is an absolute game changer for us MTB bikers. From here on out, I'll be using Chin mounted GoPro for riding at mountain bike parks, and the chest mounted GoPro set up for trail riding.

How to GoPro like a pro - getting epic MTB video

Links to everything in the Video and more

I would estimate that more than half of all mountain bikers own some sort of action camera, with which they hope to share their experiences with. These cameras can be used not only for first person footage, but also for filming others. Since action cameras are small, durable, and have wide angle lenses, they’re ideal for capturing anything in your immediate vicinity.

It’s widely known that mounting an action camera on your helmet will give you the most stable footage. Your head acts as a stabilizer and makes the footage more watchable. With the right angle, you can get part of your front wheel and handlebars in the picture as a frame of reference. Action cameras like GoPro can feel super heavy on your head though, so I recommend using one of these frames paired with a lens protector.

While the helmet is probably the easiest and most stable mounting spot, the chest is the most immersive. By putting the viewer behind the handlebars, the video becomes a little more captivating. The problem with chest mounts though is that they’re ridiculously uncomfortable and make you sweat profusely. Mess up the angle, and you'll get a nice shot of your top tube for the duration of your ride. So a chest mount is something I would only use temporarily, but not all day long.

Mounting an action camera to your bike is the most comfortable option, and works great as a secondary angle. Although mounting a forward facing camera to your handlebars looks terrible, I find that it actually works great facing backwards. I wouldn’t want to watch a whole video like this, but it’s an interesting angle for short clips.

Get one of these seat rail adapters, and you can get a rear view or capture your friends. The video is surprisingly stable and watchable, especially on a full suspension bike, so lately I’ve been getting a second angle this way with my Hero 3 Silver.

These are angles that you can get with any action camera, but if you want to take things a step further you can add a stabilizer. These will usually be referred to as wearable gimbals. Typically wearable gimbals come in single, double, and triple axis variations, with each axis improving the video and increasing the cost. Here’s my Feiyu WG-Lite, which is a single axis gimbal that costs well below $100. It’s very well built, and actually has an awesome carrying case which I use for all my other stuff. The problem is that a single axis gimbal doesn’t make that big of a difference when worn on the rider. On the helmet it provides a slight improvement, but on the chest I don’t think it improves anything at all. On the seat rails, the results are noticeably better, so I’ll be using this method in future videos.

If you’re okay with dropping about $300, you can get a triple axis wearable gimbal. You’ll need to be okay with also putting this investment at risk out on the trails. I can tell you from experience though that this is a risk with fruitful rewards. Just look at how the footage looks mounted to your helmet. Of course, it’s insanely uncomfortable to ride like this for long periods of time. Mounting the gimbal on your chest is a little more tolerable, and gives an awesome point of view.

I think one of the greatest benefits of a triple axis gimbal is the footage you can get of other riders. Following someone with helmet-mounted gimbal can make your footage look like it was shot with a drone. You can also just hold it and use it like a normal camera. My Z1 Rider-M comes with a really useful handle that I use for almost every video. With a little practice you can get epic shots, even on foot. Combined with a high end GoPro, you’ll be spending around $700, but the results speak for themselves.

I also want to show you one other option, just because it’s so cool. Domingo has a handheld gimbal camera made by DJI called the OSMO. It uses a built in 4K camera, and a really solid smartphone mount. Here’s Domingo running behind me with his. At a hair over $500, this is a great option for a compact camera to film action sports with. The only downsides are poor battery life and terrible sound quality. Here’s what it sounds like with the built in mic. Of course, you can get extra batteries, and connect an external mic to solve these issues, and even after buying those extras you just can’t get footage like this for any cheaper.

GoPro Field Guide: Resolutions, Frame Rates and FOV (Ep 2 of 3)

Appearance: GoPro Media Team
Episode 2 of 3: Resolutions, Frame Rates and FOV
Topics: All Camera Modes, Resolutions and Fields of View (FOV)

In the second episode of the GoPro Field Guide, we meet up mountainside with Media Team members Abe Kislevitz and Caleb Farro to hear their take on Resolutions, Frame rates, and Fields of View. Abe walks us through the different resolutions, from 4K all the way down to WVGA and their respective frame rates. He clues us in about the best uses for each of the modes, from POV, follow cam, slo-motion and gear mounted shots, to the best modes for YouTube and Instagram videos. Abe points out that there is a trade off between high frame rate and high resolution.

Another option that GoPro users have to customize their footage is Field of View. Changing the Field of View between Wide, Medium, and Narrow is essentially the same thing as zooming in, but it does this by cropping in on the sensor instead of digitally zooming, which means higher quality footage. For the best results, Abe suggests having an end goal in mind and experimenting with different resolutions, frame rates, and fields of views to achieve this.

3 Ways to Stabilize Shaky GoPro or Travel Videos

Have shaky footages ever frustrated you when you tried to make an awesome travel video or outdoor sports video? Today we’ll introduce 3 ways to stabilize shaky footages so you can create professional looking videos.

More info:

No. 1 Gimbal stabilizer

Other than a quality camera, there’re a growing number of hardware accessories you can try. When you shoot videos with a cell phone or GoPro while you’re walking or panning, shaky footages are inevitable. In this case, a gimbal stabilizer can minimize the shakiness. In addition, some top cameras come with stabilization mode, so remember to check and turn it on if yours has it.

No. 2 With Filmora Video Editor

With Filmora action cam mode, fixing shaky footages is as easy as 1 click. If you haven’t got it yet, click and download a free trial of Filmora.

Then, open it and select Action Cam Tool. In this simple interface, you can import your footages to Filmora, and select Fix. Then, simply check Stabilization and drag to adjust the intensity level. You can also view the effect in preview window on the right and determine the proper adjust level. Note that in stabilization mode, your footage will be cropped a little bit, and cropped area will expand as you increase the intensity level.
Now, let’s see how stabilization in Filmora makes a difference.


No.3 With Youtube Video Editor
If you’re a youtuber, you can stabilize the video on your Youtube as well. Just upload your video to Youtube, and in Creator studio, choose video manger and select to edit your video. In the playback page, select enhancement. In this basic online editor, you can simply check Stabilize, and it will fix your shakiness right away. However, Youtube video editor does not allow you to adjust intensity level and it will compress your outcome video to some degree, so your Youtube video may not be in the same quality before you upload it.

Alright, so these are 3 simple ways to stabilize your shaky video, if you’d like easy yet powerful stabilization feature along with stunning video effects, just visit and download Filmora free trial. Thanks for watching and remember to subscribe for more interesting tips and tricks about video making.
