GoPro Quik: Biking in the North Cascades

Last week PRW’s own Dave Goulet participated in the first day of a four day bike ride from Anacortes to Spokane. The first day of the ride followed North Cascades Highway 20 from Fidalgo Island to Diablo Lake. With a HERO5 Session and the GoPro Quik iPhone App Dave made this edit:

Dave’s notes and tips:

  • Record short clips
    • Aim for 30seconds or less, unless it is something super notable. This will make editing easier, your video more compelling and less tedious. (You may have spent 8hours in the saddle but your viewer doesn’t want to.)
  • Different Perspectives
    • When possible make every edit point a change in POV (point of view)
      • For example: Handlebar mount > handheld > Handlebar mount
      • Or even better – record using multiple cameras
    • This breaks up the shots to keep the viewer entertained.
    • Don’t fret too hard on this, Quik will help with edit styles when viewpoints don’t change (See above: the tunnel section)
    • Don’t be afraid to hold the camera in your mouth.
      • Yes, it is a little gross, and be careful not to crash or drop it, but it gives a good POV and stabilizes the camera quite well.
  • Use the Quik App
    • It makes editing a breeze and can compress files to make posting to Instagram or Facebook easier as well as emailing a link to friends and family.
  • Bring more GoreTex
    • OK, that has more to do with cycling in the Pacific Northwest in September, but it is always a good tip.

Details:

  • Shot on a HERO5 Session
  • Shot in 1080P @ 30 FPS
  • Video Stabilization: ON
  • Mounts used:
    • Pro Handlebar / Seatpost / Pole Mount
    • Handheld
    • In mouth
    • Set on ground
  • Edited in GoPro Quik iPhone App

New GoPro App Pulls Footage from Your GoPro and
Creates Awesome Videos, Automatically

SAN MATEO, Calif. – (July 27, 2017) – Sharing cool experiences is now easy thanks to QuikStories – a new GoPro app feature that automatically pulls footage from a HERO5 camera and creates ready-to-share videos on your phone.  QuikStories are polished, shareable videos featuring customizable music, filters, and effects.

“QuikStories is our biggest leap forward since the invention of the GoPro itself,” says GoPro founder and CEO, Nicholas Woodman.  “QuikStories is the simple storytelling solution our customers have been dreaming about for years.  It’s an absolute game changer.”

Making a QuikStory is as simple as pairing a HERO5 camera to your phone and launching the GoPro app. Then kick back as the app automatically copies your most recent GoPro footage to your phone and creates an exciting video for you.

Customizing a QuikStory is also easy.  Add text, slow motion and speed effects, change filters and music, adjust the total video length and more.  Additionally, any footage on your phone can be added to a QuikStory video.

QuikStories is now available for HERO5 Black and HERO5 Session users. To get started, download the new GoPro app from the Apple App Store or Google Play.

Chris Froome was declared the overall winner for the fourth time.
