    GoPro Back Mount Try Out

    Post  GRAYMAN on Sun Apr 22, 2012 3:37 am

    GoPro "Chesty" mount worn back to front. Gives a reasonable POV effect, different to using a helmet cam. Kicking does lead to some jiggling and I think it needs tightenening to help reduce this.

    The waves at this session were ropie, weak wind swell. Better waves would definitely help.

    Hi G, am very impressed with the back mount experiment, I get what you mean about the wobble, but I think the visual effect is great, nice to see a ( in my view) good perspective looking forward over the head & shoulders. Sure beats the usual view of hand/mat/valve wave face view. Is this home made or a Go Pro add on? Very Happy

    It's one of these worn back-to-front. I'm hopeful that better waves would need less kicking, hence less jiggling.
