For the mountain biking trip to Moab, I decided to try doing some videos with an action cam.
What’s kept me from recording before is the shaky quality of most videos I see. Then I saw this wearable gimbal in a few places online; the results look really good; then I got the equipment.
Not being sure about how well it will work and how much I’ll use it, I rented the GoPro 4 Silver. The gimbal could not be rented, so I purchased it.
The recording quality I’ll and used in the video below is 1080 at 30 fps. That seems to be a good quality for most applications.
Below is the first video I shot with this setup. It was recorded on the trails in the Phoenix Mountains, which are rocky and rough, especially trail 8 heading south back to the 32nd Street parking lot, with a lot of drops and high-speed descents.
Make sure the change the quality settings to 1080HD for the best visual quality.
What do you think of the quality and stability afforded by this combo?
