Filming hero session flipped 90 degrees

Just wondering if there is some way to film my hero session in 90 degrees. 

I mount my camera under my dirtbike helmet visor, but i cant see the red led when it is on as the led is at the top.

Turning it 90 degrees would allow me to see the led. 

If flipped 180 i cant use the on off button.

Hi @fleetshore751

 

Would you be able to share a picture of your camera/helmet setup?

 

Thanks!

Re: Filming hero session flipped 90 degrees

Hi @fleetshore751

 

Have you tried keeping the power button on the right/left?

This way you can still access the button and still see the LED.

 

 

Thanks!

Re: Filming hero session flipped 90 degrees

Does the camera function properly with it being 90 degrees?

I think it has 180 degree auto rotation.

I could always rotate the videos on the computer, not sure how it would handle the aspect ratios though.

Re: Filming hero session flipped 90 degrees

It's not going to work the way you want it to. You'll end up with a very tall and skinny video when rotated. Voice commands (which will be very iffy over the sound of the bike) and the Smart Remote are your best options for having the camera upside down so you can see the light. Otherwise, you'll need to start the recording and then pop the camera into the frame.

Please do watch and learn. maybe I need another cup of coffee

 

suggest a dji mount, or get a swival mount.  you can place the cam rotated once  but the video will be post and you may wantto shoot AR4:3 then AR16:9

Re: Filming hero session flipped 90 degrees

Sorry I ran back for coffee.

 

We know th camera can be fitted in like said.  I was thinking of the extensions I had and swivals but that defeats this purpose , you got a good position and  like said. and you had your answer with editing, crop and rotate in an editor, the best setting will then have to be Aspect 4:3 so no matter what you can rotate 90 degree and have the Wholeshot if you are going to do Aspect 16: then it may not  have the  screen shot you want,

 

SInce  the led is in the back and what  we used to do is take fiber optics or plastic, and create your own  led extender.  Mobius action camera uses plastic to do that, and matter offact the DJI Osmo Action as well on their outside frame.   SOmething to think of, if  handy
