My friend recently got an hd go pro hero. im pretty excited to shoot with it this winter but have a few questions for anyone with any knowledge on the matter. first of all, i have a mac and a fairly new dell inspiron which is what we would be doing the editing on. ALSO the purpose of these is just to film ourselves and make some fun good looking edits...nothing too fancy.
Question 1: What format would be the best compromise of clarity and easy editing? i was told 720p 60fps was good but am not sure.
2. What do you do about battery life? Their website says 2.5 hours of recording but Im sure the cold takes a toll on that.
3. What have you found is the best way to get steady follow shots? Iv seen plenty of edits where the cam is somehow mounted on a ski pole, but any other suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks a lot and +k for help
