Trying a camera rig out (video)
I'm on a quest for better bicycle camera mounting. This is test one from the first placement, which is just a monopod strapped to the non-gear side chain stay. The monopod is the cheapo Walmart kind so it does have flex but I'm not sure that a stiffer monopod would provide less vibration. I may try a carbon fiber rod or monopod in this same position. Manfrotto Magic Arm is also going to be tried.
Overall I feel that it gives different view, but I centered the bike and focus is on bike/my legs. When the weather is better I will get the bike out and try more with this position and work on composition. Vibration will always be a problem...
. I shot this around my apartment complex to test the vibrations because the concrete is pretty tore up (note the construction). If it looks like I'm drunk, its because I'm dodging some of the more severe cracks and holes in the concrete. I'm also turning around to look at the camera a lot.
Sound will still need to be captured externally, which I'm not worried about at the moment. Alice in Chains is the first song on my computer alphabetically... it substitutes wind noise. Yes, I'm wearing velcro shoes from, I love them.
Has anyone else worked with cameras not on handlebars or helmets? Any suggestions?
