Hey, what did you mean by "use more camera angles" on your Youtube post? Curious.
Unless it is fairly short - and there is something interesting going on - a video that is just one-angle POV is boring. The camera needs to move around and provide multiple views to make it interesting.
I got a tiny bit of that on the one hop - you get POV leading up to it, then an exterior shot of the hop from one angle, then another exterior shot of the hop from another angle, then back to POV.
Spliced together properly (and I'll be the first to admit that I'm just learning what "properly" is) it makes the video flow better and tell a proper story.
I shot a ton of footage like this a couple of days ago - a couple of exterior angles on every corner, plus chest mount, helmet mount, and seat post mount forward and rear - of a section of trail. But unfortunately I had selected "camera" mode instead of "video" mode and all I got was a bunch of stills 1 sec apart.
