GoPro + Snowboard ..... Best Shots?
 
Obviously this isn't just for GoPro, but any action camera.

What are your favorite angles to shoot from?

So far I have mounted my Gopro on the front of my board as well as on the front of my helmet.

I think the board shots look better, but then I was made aware that the vibrations from the board can wreck the sensor in the camera. I don't plan on using this option any more.

What are some of the mount/accessory set ups you guys like to use when recording?

I have a GoPole on the way, love the options it gives.

I just got mine, taking it out today for the first time. I think the real thing here is if you are using this purely for you to watch and enjoy you need to make this decision yourself and shoot that way. If this is going to be for an "edit" for the public, variety and proper editing is what really matters.

For me right now I have a helmet mount which with face outwards or back at my face, and a pole. So that will give me outward facing helmet, inward facing helmet, pole in front at varying lengths and pole behind at varying lengths. I think stupid deep pow days are best shot with the pole front, behind and the inward facing helmet. Not a ton of inward facing hemlet, but tour shit eating grin will be worth it.

Well.... just my two cents, but I have thought about this quite a bit sadly..... now if it would just snow :(

What is your goal? No, really. Are you trying to create artistic videos with soundtracks? Training videos? Personal memories? Checking your form?

My favorite use of the cam is at the end of a pole, because I can see my board-work. I'm sure they're utterly boring to anyone but me.

Form check

Video edits

All the above.

I'd like to put some videos together, but it gets pretty boring looking at my helmet cam videos.

Mount it on a skier friend and have them follow you. Awesome shots. :laugh:

I went boarding with some friends, but I didn't want to give up my camera. If I gave up the camera I had no helmet. That's when a GoPole would be awesome. easy to pass it off.

If my buddy had a helmet we could have traded buckets for a few runs, I these days I don't feel comfortable riding with no helmet.

just had my gopro out today, on my helmet. Took a fall so bad on my back, it ripped off the adhesive on the mount. luckily, i was wearing a helmet, and I carried a few extra adhesive pads. (got the whole crash on recorded, along with the go pro flying in the air )

Wait, what? You can't unclip your camera?

Buddy doesn't have a go pro mount on his lid I suspect..... I may have missed the sarcasm as well though.....:dunno:

I have a pole but mostly ride with it on my helmet, I point it down a lot so I can see my board. It's nice being able to see your board on the snow and not have to carry around a damn pole.
I don't really make edits, it's just for memories and laughs when I wreck. Show some close buddies or family to get them interested, etc.
