Hero 6 Low Light Cycling - Vibration

I’m using the Hero 6 on 1080p 30fps to capture cycling in low light on the new GoPro handlebar mount. I’m finding I’m getting a huge amount of vertical vibration from the road such that any lights are jumping up perhaps 1/20 to 1/10 of the frame.

The mount is used with just the built in rubber rather than any of the reducers and I’ve got the taller buckle that comes with the mount installed.

Any tips for removing the shake? At the moment the footage is unusable and I get better results from a 4 year old Sony action cam

Re: Hero 6 Low Light Cycling - Vibration

Is the stabilization on?

Hi,
As well as the stabilisation, van you post a picture of the mount so that we're clear about the type you have.

Re: Hero 6 Low Light Cycling - Vibration

It’s this mount: https://shop.gopro.com/EMEA/mounts/handlebar-seatpost-pole-mount/AGTSM-001.html

I’m using the vertical buckle. Mount is configured so the buckle base is pointing about 15 degrees off horizontal towards the front of the bike and the buckle thumbscrew set so the camera is vertical. This allows it to easily be turned to face my face as well as the road

Stabilisation is on, protune off and auto low light not available at 30fps.

Re: Hero 6 Low Light Cycling - Vibration

Looking at gopros video they only showed one clip mounted on a motorbike on a smooth Road an one from a helicopter which would be high frequency vibration rather than bulbs. The rest of the clips were on things like goal posts, self-employed poles etc.

I don't think that the rubber in this is likely to give much dampening. The best place to mount it would be the point that suffers the least jerking about - probably on a head mount as then your entire body would act as a sort of gimbal. You do loose the ability for a selfie this way though.
