Pole Mount, choosing the right length.
I'm looking for opinions from anyone having any experience with pole mounts. Specifically in choosing a good length to have the camera down the pole. How long is ideal for self shooting?
I have turned an old skill pole into a mount for my camera, but I'm wondering how long it should be to be able to capture something more than my upper body. A lot that I've seen just show the rider's chest and head, but there are a few that do capture the movement of the entire body/snowboard, which is what I'm interested in.
I've tested it at home, but testing on a flat surface is not true to what it would necessarily look like on a steeper pitch. I like to cut off any excess to reduce what I'd be carrying on.
Any opinions on this would be appreciated.
