GoPro Test - Hackett Gulch Colorado

Mounted it to my hood due to there being a lot of mud on the trail. Nearly needed a new bumper, lol. Anyway, just a quick video...

That looks like a fun trail. I used the same mounting position a couple of weekends ago and regretted it. Next time I plan to get the truck in the shot. You really don't get the right perspective with the gopro hanging on the nose.

Try putting it on the roof, or the side window. Keep it up.

I agree, my plan was to change it up on each of the three trails we were doing...I was too lazy to switch it, lol. Roof next time for sure .

Cool video! I put mine on the top of the windshield, so I could tie it off to the roofrack, in case the suction cup failed. It worked out pretty good.

That always happens to me. I get so into what I'm doing I forget to take pictures or set up shots. You should get some of just your truck, maybe hand it off to someone else outside the truck.

If you don't have it already you'll want to get yourself a telescoping wand. Here's my latest video. Of course my truck is the one you can't see.

I did hand off the wand to someone else while I tried to get up that ledge at 5:34.

This is the wand I have. It makes for some great shots, and also makes people think that I'm way too close to other trucks.

I'm liking that wand. While the wife likes being in the truck, she also likes getting pics and video so I'm sure she wouldn't mind

It's also good for recording yourself. I've used it snorkeling and could get my whole body in the shot. The only problem is that you'll be wanting a second gopro.

No, there was a group of 15-20 of us plus a decent group of Jeeps behind us so we turned around after hackett rock. Plus we were hitting another trail so decided to turn around there.

bringing my gopro adds about double the time to complete a run. it's worse than bringing my girlfriend... I spend a ton of time experimenting with placement and mounting tools, but it's worth it to get my truck in the shots too! my sig below is a good example of spending too much time filming and then editing what would otherwise be a pretty tame ride. But i enjoy it. Best shots i think are mounting straight to the truck body but focusing on parts of the truck that are constantly in motion on the trail i.e. mounting next to a fender and pointing it at the wheel well, or mounting it to a window or side mirror and pointing it in at the poor occupants in the cabin that are getting tossed around like babies in a tumble dryer
