Video: Mounting an action camera

One of the cameras we attached was a GoPro. And I'm just using the GoPro mount itself. A suction cup mount easy affordable piece of cake. And actually we clipped a second GoPro in just for some behind the scenes footage with the GoPro clamp. Now the GoPro suction mount is designed to attach to a smooth surface like the outside of a car or the inside of a car. I'm going to go with the inside of the car because it's just safer. I don't have to worry about my gear falling off hanging off the side of my car vibration from the wind it's going to be fine.

Hyperlapse = time lapse + camera movement. You can get the effect by moving your tripod manually or along a track, but shooting hyperlapse from a moving vehicle is the one guaranteed way to get really dramatic time-lapse footage. And it doesn't take a lot of gear. In this course, Rich Harrington introduces the equipment you need and the techniques you should use to capture great hyperlapse sequences, as he travels around the Nevada desert during the day and captures the bright lights/big city of Vegas at night. When he returns to the studio, he shares his post-processing tips in Adobe Camera Raw, Premiere Pro, and After Effects.

This course was created and produced by RHED Pixel. We're honored to host this content in our library.

Topics include:
  • Choosing the right camera for hyperlapse video
  • Mounting your camera
  • Stabilizing shots
  • Programming the camera
  • Capturing shots

Mounting an action camera

One of the cameras we attached was a GoPro. And I'm just using the GoPro mount itself. A suction cup mount easy affordable piece of cake. And actually we clipped a second GoPro in just for some behind the scenes footage with the GoPro clamp. Now the GoPro suction mount is designed to attach to a smooth surface like the outside of a car or the inside of a car. I'm going to go with the inside of the car because it's just safer. I don't have to worry about my gear falling off hanging off the side of my car vibration from the wind it's going to be fine.

It's connected. And what I've actually is I got a little bit sneaky. I tethered the power. I took the GoPro and put it in a GoPro frame which exposes the ports. And then we just ran a USB cable with an extender into a portable battery pack. I've got juice for almost two days of shooting. Now we're not going to drive for two days but I don't have to worry about power at all. And that's going to make this so much easier. Additionally I brought along several pieces of the GoPro articulating arm so I could really angle the GoPro for the right position.

What's difficult is to avoid the actual mount itself. It has a tendency if you're attaching the mount and shooting this direction to pick it up a little bit. But that's okay. We're shooting with a larger size frame. If you wanted to try this else wise you could just mount it on the outside of the car but I'm going to safety today and ease of use. It's pretty straightforward. Alright, up next is the Pro-Mount which is a bit more involved so I'm going to give you a strategy there.
