Because if the result of this is good, I’m definitely going to wear this setup while shooting footage for tutorials, maybe coupled with another stationary video camera on a tripod.
Well, let’s give it a try and see how things work out!
With the GoPro securely attached to the head mount I put it all on and turned on the camera. Then I opened the GoPro app on my phone and connected it to my camera. It didn’t take long until I could see what the GoPro was catching.
After a few tweaks to the camera I had it the correct angle and the kite pretty much in the centre of the screen. I tapped the REC-button on the screen of my phone and a beep from the GoPro confirming that it was recording.
Ok, watch the kite, fly and start talking … and try not to stumble over anything!
After some flying it was time to take a break and check out the footage. I can use my phone for this too so no need to take off the headband and the camera. The footage looked pretty good and it seemed like the audio wasn’t too bad either!
So I will definitely use this setup when shooting the footage for future tutorials. …and I have a feeling that this will be a great way of filming team flying too! ….when it’s ok to travel, cross borders and meet your kiting buddies from all over the world again!
