    Why I won't buy Hero6

    It's the same reason I wouldn't buy Hero5: https://shop.gopro.com/EMEA/accessories-2/pro-3.5mm-mic-adapter/AAMIC-001.html# What an abomination, if they included the adapter free like with the Yi4K+ it's still a ludicrous brick thing that is about as unsuitable for an action camera as you can...

    Other Back home in 5 minutes

    Just a short dashcam edit from my (hero4) bits and pieces youtube acount. I had £200 worth of new glass for a building project in the back!

    Steadicams, Copters, Panning Devices and More What drone?

    I would say if the gimbal interests you the Karma is a good option. DJI's new Mavic outclasses it in every way though with possible exception of video quality though even that is close considering no fish-eye distortion with Mavic (or earlier P3/P4) To be honest I dislike the whole idea of...

    Remote Control Aerial Vehicles 4K is over rated...this is why...

    30 or 24 fps isn't glitchy low frame rate, I don't know what you mean. Or are you recording at 15fps on a Hero 3? Its debatable whether its worth rendering at 4K for TV though, my 4K TV only looks better playing 4K over 1080p if you sit about 4 feet away. It's more obvious on the PC monitor...

    Steadicams, Copters, Panning Devices and More Gimbal with gopro case

    I don't think so, though there may be some unorthodox way to mount it. The motors seem tough enough to deal with extra weight within reason but if the centre of gravity is changed it probably won't hold level without calibration. Hero5 being at least splashproof without a case solves the issue...

    Motorsports DIY Chin Mount for helmets!!

    I can't see it's a good thing putting screws through near where your face might get squashed. Why is this better than a more conventional mount and J-arm? Having said that the front of my helmet is too pointy, I did consider 2 or 3 extra layers of the sticky pad stuff to pack up the sides.

    Steadicams, Copters, Panning Devices and More Feiyu-Tech G4S - Is it the best Gimbal for the price.

    They will transform your video, I don't think there's much to choose between the various models out there, none are guaranteed flawless in longer term use. I've been quite impressed with the simplicity and robustness of a single axis (feiyu). It can be used on a helmet mount and works...

    HERO4 Black/Silver update v4.0

    More fine tune of white balance seems a useful improvement. Who's first :cool:

    Remote Control Aerial Vehicles What's your opinion on my video? Good or Bad?

    The frequent fade to black cuts are a bit much. In general a fade to black is shorthand for 'later' or a completely different scene - though nothing is wrong if the effect is what you hoped. There are no set rules.

    Steadicams, Copters, Panning Devices and More Feiyu G4 3 Axis Gimbal Owners thread

    This was greatly helped by the G4. What it does really well is shown the opening sequence, circling around - which gives a stunning almost 3D feel. Driving alongside on a bumpy field the video would not have been a pretty sight handheld.

    Other 4 years around Europe [Beautiful Places]

    Excellent, I remember that curving viaduct near Chamonix from visiting on my bike in 1988!

    Biking On the Trail!

    It would be much less jiggly if you recorded mainly with a helmet mount. It's nice to have brief cutaways from the alternative mounts though.

    Can't beat a good Youtube thumbnail to encourage views of a boring video :p

    Motorsports Motorcycle ride from Amsterdam city center to Schiphol airport - 2x GoPro cam

    The cameras perform well in this despite failing light. I would be inclined to make a short version with the most scenic moments. It would also be more interesting if you added text notes of street names or landmarks if you don't wish to do any voice over - it is always kind of nice to hear the...

    Rather unplanned use of Feiyu and H4B while driving on quiet roads last week.

    White balance settings

    Firstly, GoPro does seem to do a pretty good job set on auto, but when you come to edit sometimes the changing as it adjusts automatically becomes an issue. With other cameras I often just set it on about 5800 and make any needed changes when grading. This approach is rather hampered with GoPro...

    Steadicams, Copters, Panning Devices and More Feiyu G4 3 Axis Gimbal Owners thread

    I only got my G4 last month and one of the modes the remote does control the head. Trouble is with the cable it's not something you'd want to carry round all the time just in case. Normally you could just turn it by hand of course but can imagine having it fixed somewhere sooner or later...

    'Recommended' Protune settings

    I'm reasonably handy with colour grading DSLR footage, and know how to use LUTS in GoPro studio and Adobe Premiere. However I'm finding the recommendations for protune with Native white balance and Flat colour profile are often difficult to grade consistently? I must have spent 3 or 4 hours...
