Gopro Helmet Cam test

Is there anyway to really get rid of the camera shakiness post process? I tried two different positions on my helmet and rode around my neighborhood for a bit to see how bad the shake was, and its still there.

That looks on par with all other helmet cam videos I've seen.

Last I posted a youtube video they asked if I wanted to fix the shakiness. Does that work?

couple of questions:
1. where do you get the intro GoPro sequence?

2. did you make a dolly for the panning shots? (i've been playing with pvc and skate bearings lately. A dolly is next after I finish up and fine tune my DIY steady cam mount)

3. is the shake from your head? helmet fit too loose? wrong LCD bacpac door on gopro housing? or the camera mount being loose? you can use the stabilization in iMovie and it does decent, but won't eliminate shake and crops your video.

I can't say that I have had this problem with mine at all. Your video almost looks to be missing some frames making it choppy.

It is your head bobbing around , mount it on the bike.

mounting to the bike can offer its own disadvantages too with the gopro rolling shutter.

which reminds me...depending on what iMovie you have...if you have 11, go to the inspector and click next to rolling shutter, "reduce motion distortion". in the inspector is where you will also find "smooth clip motion" for stabilization.

I bought a glide gear 23" slider dolly for $50 shipped. Look on amazon and they drop their price from time to time. Itnsaves me the headache of making my own.

I put my helmet on and its loose since its a 4 year old helmet. There's just enough room for some wiggle. I figure if I get a new helmet a lot oft will go away. I forgot that even the slightest shake will be even more pronounced on a fixed video cam with no stability assist

I can't say that I have had this problem with mine at all. Your video almost looks to be missing some frames making it choppy.

thanks. i might have to add that to some of my videos. i didn't know if it was something from the gopro website.

some more free mac programs to check out if you haven't already...GoPro Cineform Studio (I might clips here) and JES Deinterlacer (when I want to slo-mo in iMovie, since it only takes 30 fps and I shoot in 60 fps).

i will check into that slider.

another thing that may have screwed it up...i was recording via 1080p 30fps, and exported at 720p 24fps...i forgot to match frame rates

Ill try again this evening with helmet cam, and suction cup on the bike.

slider is cheap, and really does a good job.

that's a well done vid.

movement makes for great effect. i was using the iMovie ken burns effect way too much...

Link to one of my SLOW MOTION TESTS
  1. 60 FPS converted to 30 in JES
  2. 1/2 speed in iMovie.
  3. crop and ken burns

Playing with slow motion has given me the itch for a real high speed camera. the gopro 120fps mode is just too low a resolution.

If you're using the 3m mount on your helmet make sure to put a piece of duct tape on the sliding rail where the camera's bracket clicks in. That connection always rattles a bit and the duct tape will make it a very tight fit to reduce that a bit.

you don't use the supplied nose plugs? those reduce a lot of shake and rattle too.

I think this is part of the problem.
