GoPro cameras and cycling go together like . . . Anyway, I love, particularly when in Portugal, to attach the GoPro to my mountain bike as I head for the hills, or sometimes to my road bike here in blighty! So what I’ve found works best is to attach the camera to the handlebars, record at 50fps with the GoPro set to superwide, as this tends to smooth out the shakes somewhat. I have two videos on my YouTube channel that demonstrate the difference between handlebar mounting and chest mounting. Chest mounting POV (point of view) includes your hands on the bars, but at the expense of a lot of rock & roll, particularly when climbing, whereas handlebar mounting is generally more stable, depending on the road surface of course. The other alternative to smoother recording is a head mount, something I’ve yet to try. That’s fine, providing you don’t keep looking around or do a ‘Froomey’ and stare at you stem too much! I shall give that a go next time I head for the sun!
I’m willing to bet, that the next generation of GoPro’s will have built in video stabilisation – certainly hope so!
