GoPro HD Hero 2 video settings Can't Post

Hi folks!

Just bought a GoPro and are going to do my first jumps with camera.
What video settings do you advice to use on the Hero2 for skydiving?

All comments are welcome!

Hi,
Have a quick look at the hypoxic homepage. Trunk has a write up for organising your go-pro settings and video options that are easy and straight forward.
Good luck and have fun with your camera!

Hi
I am shooting with 720 60fps..
It is very nice and smooth.
You can film also on 960 but it is 4:3
Also at 1080 it is shaking....Not recommended for free fly..
Hope this helps.

I shoot everything 720 at 60fps as well. The videos at the link below are all shot at this setting. When you slow down the footage 50% it still looks smooth.

i was wondering if any of you have any experience with polarization filters?
I know u can buy a sort of add-on lense thing that will reduce glare

i also use 720 60fps

I also shoot in 720p 60fps... Good footage that can be usable for super slow mo's if you have the right software...

spot off. Spot on is good for stuff like seeing out of a car window on a sunny day.
