GoPro HERO cameras are compact, durable, and versatile—and they love road trips! With various mounts and housings, you can attach a GoPro to the outside of a car, motorcycle, or anywhere else your imagination leads you. Shoot dramatic on-the-go footage, capture the action of a race, or shoot a time-lapse movie that enables your audience to travel hundreds of miles in a few minutes.
In this course, Richard Harrington and Jim Ball detail the tools and techniques for shooting mobile video with a vehicle-mounted GoPro. They'll explore the mounting and housing options and compare mounting locations: both inside and outside a car, on various spots on a motorcycle—or even directly on the rider. Plus, learn how to set up your GoPro settings to best capture video and still photography on the go.
Now, as you can see, this camera position once again with, with this particular mount, and driving down the road over bumps or who knows what else. Is going to be a lot of shake, and some shake can add some energy to the scene, but some other times it can be kind of unflattering. And cause some rolling shutter effects in the CMOS sensors of the GoPros, now we talked about sticking some clay and some padding inside the skeleton housings to help with that, but another really good way to minimize that is to grab the camera from another place to just make it a little more stable from a grip point of view. With these cages again you've got so many great mounting points, you know, we can start with something we can grab on to that will hold the camera in place and there's all kinds of little tools, these red rocks Billy and Betty clamps, can go into these holes.
'Kay, so I'm just going to add something to grab onto the cage, from the grippages that I'm going to build from another suction cup arm. And these are, these little micro grip pieces, and there are different sizes of suction cups. In this case I usually, I usually carry a couple different sizes because with all these different surfaces on the car some are not as wide as others. So, I'm going to use this slightly smaller cup to grab on to another panel of the car. Like so.
I'm going to add a standard grip knuckle. Like so, and, go in, piece of grippage, like so, make sure everything's tight. Another knuckle. A lot of this is intuitive. We all played with tinker toys, and stuff like this when we were kids, so it's stuff you already kind of know. Okay, and there's another grab point on the camera. It's just going to make it all that much more stable and safer. Tighten everything down, re-check our frame, make sure it didn't move in the process.
Great, it didn't move one bit. So now you have this other grab point to make, make it a little more stable.
