GoPro Field Guide: HERO4 Black 1080p

 

HERO4 Black, 1080P Video Modes, Fields of View (FOV)

In the first episode of the HERO4 GoPro Field Guide, we meet up with Hannah Teter on her way to Cardrona resort in New Zealand, where she shows us all of the ways to use 1080p with the new HERO4 Black camera. The different frame rates and FOVs available enable you to create a variety of effects in your videos.

1080p30 – Great for static shots when there is no need to slow things down in post, as this will provide you super high image quality.

1080p60 – Head-mounted shots. Still provides you with great image quality, but boasts a high enough frame rate for slow motion shots.

1080p120 – Handheld shots, which often tend to be shaky. The high frame rate enables you to slow down the footage in post-production to create a a dramatic slow-motion effect.

1080p SuperView – Helps to keep both the horizon and the snowboard in the shot.

Field of View (FOV) – Another way to switch things up is to play with the FOV. It’s not recommended to change the FOV on head- or body-mounted shots, but it works great for shots when you are far away from the subject.

One more thing before you go! Dig deeper into this GoPro Field Guide series on YouTube to learn from the best on how to maximize your GoPro cameras and products.

As always, happy capturing!

Yakima 2015 Hitch: TwoTimer and FourPlay

IMG_6096
Overdue, but welcomed, Yakima is releasing a hitch-mounted bike with trays that will cradle all the current tire sizes out there. Yup, that includes 4.8″ fat bike tires. The days of taking your fat tires off and throwing it in the back of the hatchback are over. The TwoTimer rack holds two bikes and carry on the same tilt-down function of the HoldUp rack. The FourPlay rack holds four bikes, but the outer two trays can be quickly removed and only installed for weekend trips with the family.
IMG_6097
The main channel has an additional recess at its lowest point to provide further stability for road tires. Feathering out the edges of the channel, fat tires sit atop the channel rather than in it.
IMG_6106-750x499
Narrow tires sit in the cradles snugly and secure quickly with a ratchet strap.
