I just received a Hero4 Silver as a gift and am going skiing this week in Colorado.

 

Anyone have any tips/suggestions for if I should use a helmet mount or a pole mount?

 

When using a pole mount, how does that work?  Do you attach it to your ski pole or buy a separate pole to use?  And then what about for runs when you don't want to film?  You are forced to carry 3 poles?  

 

Again, I'm a complete rookie using this...also what settings do I need?

Check out this video, it's my first Ski trip with my GoPros.  Mounts used here were the Handlebar Mount for the ski pole (I had to wad up some brochure paper to put in the clamp because the ski poles are too thin), Chesty Harness, and Head Strap Mount.

Take a look at my video. I shot it in St Anton, it was just my 2nd Ski edit and I did a bit of planning before going and tried to get as many of the different shots on the list as possible. It annoys me when I get in from a day shredding and watch my GoPro vids back and realise I have 30of pretty much the same clips. Just be as creative as possible and think what would look cool in slow/fast motion once you've played around with it. This catches and keeps people's attention while watching your vids.

Have a look at let me know what you think. Happy to answer any questions you have mate!



Im happy for you to use a few of the things you see in exchange for a share of the vid? smile.gifwink.giftongue.gif
