  5. Is this the next level in the formula that your laps times have a direct inverse relationship to the number of gopros you have mounted? There are exceptions to the equation ie series requirements to run one, shooting promo and sponsor stuff, going for world GoPro record.

    There's definitely a bit of distraction with all these things.

    Crazy what’s available. I’m a little jealous of people who are good at documenting their racing. I’ve purchased two gopros in my life and have zero seconds of footage. Seems like a good idea but when I get to the track, I just can’t be bothered.

    Honestly it's a bit more pain in the ass than it's worth.

    ok so, first weekend using the Fusion...

    i actually kind of like it. for 1, the stabilization with the 360 is great. 2) it works better with the phone app, so i don't have to fight with desktop video editing software i dont have.

    this was a quick video i made and i did it all with the phone app..



    Same track, same bike, as when i was using the regular gopro with the 3 axis gimbal.. i think with the fusion it's waaaaaaaaaaaay better, but instead of having to tune the gimbal to work properly BEFORE you go out on track, you have to spend some time tuning the camera angles once you're back and ready to start looking through the videos you shot.

    The EVO gimbal at the beginning of this thread doesn’t work well for track days. Wind and bumps destabilize it too much. Chest mounting it is ok because it gets rid of the bumps, but doesn’t work well with full tuck. I suspect it’d work great for MTB and dirt bikes with a chest mount.

    I'm getting the hang of using the Fusion, and really like using it now:



    I think it whoops a gimbal's ass, when used with the iOS app to render the angle / pov (overcapture)

    I’m just gonna buy a hero 7 black. The built in gimbal is almost as good as putting a hero 5 on an expensive gimbal. Comparing snowboarding videos helps with the bumps and the background mountains to look for clipping.

    the new GoPro 7 black has great in camera IS.I"ve been using it the past few months and the on board video is better than what you would get from a high end gimble system a few years ago. I always mounted my GoPro cameras on my helmet as they were the best at removing a lot of the movement, but the new 7 you can mount it anywhere and it's smooth. Footage when mounted on my bars used to be pretty useless, now it's ultra smooth.

    you still get the movement of the horizon but the actual "jiggling" of the video is non existent.
