Toby - How did you shoot that new angle ?

Postby Jdude » Sun Jan 13, 2013 9:41 am

Went over the Airstyle topic and that new angle from behind is really nice.
Can you show us the rig you used for that angle ?

Thanks.

I'm interested also, good job :thumb:
Also what kind of camera you're using these days :?:
It seems like the new Contour+ 2 is the one I have on my list to get.

it is a backy mount: http://backy-mount.com/content/9-product-details

I lost my gopro, so I attached a Contour GPS to it. The angle is not as good, since it sits a bit lower...with GoPro it should be even better.

GoPro and all its mounts is nice...but I HATE the fogging...it is a big hassle and problem.
The Contour doesn't have that. And specially using this back mount, you need a cam that does not fog, since you cannot reach the on/off buttons etc.

Rain-X Antifog, inside the plastic case lens, and on the camera's glass lens. Let it dry for half an hour, polish with a soft, fluffy towel. Takes a little work to get it streak-free, but the payoff is no strips, no case-sealing rituals, like the refrigerator or car A/C. Change a memory card on the beach with zero problems. Since I did that, I have never had my camera fog up on me.

Regular Rain-X works great on the outside of the case to make the water drops that blur the shot slide off easier. And on the inside and outside of your sunglasses for the same reason. :thumb:

GoPro 4 ?!?!
Allready :D

Regarding the rig,
Doesn't it make the harness too stiff and then you loose flexibility in the back area ?
I am also not sure i want to drill holes in my new mystic Warrior :roll:

no problems with the hole...won't make the harness worse. Took a Pat Love Harness, they break anywhere else anyway...so no problem there.

I had no problems with my back.
