After purchasing a GoPro for myself as a joint Christmas and Birthday present, this was the first chance to truely test it. Without much planning I headed to Freiburg, Germany to meet a friend, from where we drove to Kühtai, Austria. Overall this turned out to a fun adventerous week with two days skiing, finishing in Innsbruck.
Unfortunately I did not record much footage so there wasn’t much to choose from when editing. I have already realised that a balance is required between enjoying the holiday and getting good footage. Although I am sure that this will get easier and more efficient over time.
All of the footage in the edited video was recorded at 1080p and 50 FPS using a linear field of view. This gave me the option to slow footage if required but I would like to experiment with even higher frame rates in the future.
During my attempts to compete the slalom course, I really liked the possibility to add overlay graphics of the course path, current speed and G-Force. Although the GoPro software can be tedious and slow to use at times.
Over the next few years I will aim to create a short video for adventure holidays such as skiing and hiking. This will be a good opportunity to improve both my filming and editing skills, while having an easily sharable sounevir.
