Cold ride Nete & Fietsostrade GoPro on Helmet

DCIM101GOPROThe days are getting longer. The goal during this and next months is to perform one or two weekday ride per week. Today only time for a ride of about two hours. Luckily only about 2 hours, because I underestimated the cold Northern wind a bit: cold legs, cold ears 😉

The route went via small roads South of Antwerp and via the banks of the small river Nete. Ideal also to do some more GoPro tests (see also previous posts). I installed the GoPro with a helmet strap; installation was very easy and the camera was stable attached to the helmet.

I used the camera in two ways: video and time burst (1 photo per second).

Post-editing:

  • GoPro Studio (very easy to use!) trimming the different video parts and stitching the different videos together
  • Selected the top 20 photos from in total about 1000 photos recorded from multiple time burst sequences and did some minimal editing with Google Photos

I very much like the end result and the dynamic effects due to the installation on the helmet. Lesson learned: set time burst interval a bit longer to limit the flood of photos.
