How to Shoot Smooth Footage with Your GoPro and a DIY Steadicam
If you don't like the material, no worries. I'll give your money back and you get to keep the guide. Guaranteed!
You can get some amazing footage with your GoPro HD camera using the RotoR rotating helmet pole.
It's an interesting rotor - 360 degrees swivel mount - that enables you to capture video of yourself from different angles. All this while you're dong your thing - mountain biking, skiing or whatever.
To make it work you'll need (sounds like a recipe doesn't it?):
- Two GoPro cameras to balance the pole - team up with a friend I'd say
- A curved sticky mount on your helmet
- A quick release sliding buckle
- Two handlebar mounts
I think it's a bit expensive (300 Euros) but I guess the effect is worth it.
However, I can envision myself doing a DIY. The pole seems to be connected to the the helmet trough a universal joint gimbal and that's something I'm very fond of. :-)
If you wanna purchase it (from Italy), you have to send them an email and they'll get back to you with a shipping estimate and a Paypal address. Go to Rotormount.com
Keep shooting your outdoor adventures!
