Everyone loves watching the action camera 1080p clips of extreme skiing, skateboarding & surfing, but you don't have to be an XGames athlete to get great hd action camera videos and pics. You can get some amazing footage just biking around the local park / lake or paddling a kayak down a nearby river. The angles and vantage point from where you mount your hd action camera make all the difference. Here are a few tips for getting the most out of your hd action camera:
- Vary the angles - often the best shots are those filmed from unusual angles. Get creative and try as many angles as possible. Most cameras have wifi, so you can view/test the angles and footage using your smart phone.
- Sharp & short - aim for 60 frames per second as a minimum. 1080p, 60 fps is an optimal setting for most hd action cameras. People have short attention spans, shorter clips are watched more.
- Show your mount - when filming from a kayak or helmet cam, have part of your kayak or helmet in the picture, it will help your hd action camera footage look more stable and give your viewers a point of reference.
- Vary camera height - having a camera mounted on your snowboard looking up can offer some amazing footage, while having it mounted on the top of your helmet looking down can offer some unique videos.
