Go pro's video stabilizer
Was looking at upgrading to one of the new go pros with the video stabilization built in. Right now I have a session 3+ silver and when I'm skiing trees and things get rowdy it's hard to make stuff out with the chest mount same when I'm on my mountain bike and it's on my head cause it is just so shakey. Anyone out there that has used both that can speak to whether or not it is worth the $500 upgrade to get the latest and greatest?
They have these things called gimbals, I'm fairly certain GoPro makes one. This would stabilize your video. Also you can shoot in 1080 and go into Adobe Premiere and use the warp stabilizer, but you might lose a lil quality, although when posting online the quality degrades regardless, except maybe YouTube and Vimeo. With the combo of those two, your video should be fairly steady.
Hope this helps
I looked into gimbals before however its not something I think would work well with a chest mount due to the added size of the handle and stuff (also wont work for helmet for riding bikes). If I was looking for a handheld option it would be great but I don't those are the best options in my opinion for what i'm looking for in terms of just throw it on and go. I mean I could be mistaken here but from my research I don't think so.
