I tried to create the post I would have wanted to find when I first got my helmet camera. I know I definitely had a questions, but I found that there was limited information for MTB specific set up tips. Anyway, Here's a link to the post in question. I'd love to hear your opinions and feed back.

Cheers

Good stuff Phil. It would be nice to see not only stills, but also short video clips demonstrating each configuration and its strengths and weaknesses.

Me being a naive camera user is usually concerned about three things:
* smoothness and detail level in videos. Blotchy ugliness vs. well defined branches, leaves, rocks etc.
* geo distortion. Fish-eye distortion is acceptable to me when a horizon is in the center of a scene, but when it bounces up and down and horizontal lines keep bending up or down, I get dizzy
* shake or the lack of it. I hate shaky videos

It would be great if all the variables mentioned in your article somehow touched on those problems or how they amplify/remedy them, and how to arrive at a good compromise for a specific set of priorities.

Heck and if you need some anti-patterns of how *not* to do things, we have a master among us with his blair-witch like narrow FOV masterpieces. :lol:

(he was limited by his technology then, now he produces stellar videos with a proper camera ;) )
