GoPro Athlete Tips and Tricks: Snowboard Follow Cam with Elena Hight (Ep 3)

What’s up, I’m Abe Kislevitz and I’m on the
media team here at GoPro. Today we’re snowboarding with GoPro Athlete Elena Hight and we are
going to be doing some Tips and Tricks with the Follow Cam. If you really want to get that cinematic follow
cam, no matter how hard you try doing it handheld, you’ll always get shaky shots. I like to put
it on the end of a ski pole, and it really gives that smooth, awesome cinematic follow
cam. So today I’m going to be using the Handlebar/Seat Post/Pole mount, and I’ve got the rubber gasket
installed. And when you buy this mount, it comes with two of these rubber gaskets, one
is a little bit larger for larger diameters, and this is the one for smaller diameters.
And I’m actually going to be using it on the end of my ski pole to make a follow cam pole,
just like this. When I’m follow camming, my go-to mode is 1080/60 Wide. It’s the perfect
combination of high-resolution, high frame rate and it’s buttery smooth. I try to get as close as I can to the subject.
You really get the best action that way. I can’t emphasize enough on just keeping the
camera as steady as you can. Don’t worry about chasing the person left and right, but keep
that camera steady across as they pan in and out of the action, and let that wide angle
capture all of the action. Alright, that was follow camming with the
Handlebar/Seat Post/Pole mount with the GoPro Media Team and GoPro Athlete Elena Hight.

  1. "I like to follow as close to the subject as I can …" yeah, so I can impale here with my pole when she cuts into me!ย  LOL

  2. Glad to see the gopro team making tips and tricks videos. It is better to hear it from gopro than second hand. Keep up the good work…

  3. How do I transfer GoPro videos to my 4th Genration iPod??? It won't let me transfer them through iTunes and the edited files are to big to email them to myself! Do I have to update my iPod or something? PLEASE HELP!
