Newbie Video for running settings

[ New ]

I strapped the GoPro on to my husband (using the chest strap), turned it on and pressed "start" on top of the camera, and he went for a run. The settings I used were TimeWarp 1080, 10X. That worked really great in the open on sidewalks and street. But when he got into the woods the camera struggled (I guess it couldn't keep a good sense of the horizon). The film there was more blocky and jerky. Is there anything that could be changed with those settings to allow the woods' run to look better? 

 

I'm the techy person in the family so it needs to be something that requires not too much messing with the camera. Really it requires having a better overall setting to begin with.

 

Thanks.

Hello @pammm56

 

Is this observed with a certain recording? Have you tried using a different setting?

We'd like to check on this further.

Would you be able to share a sample file?

You can upload it to Youtube and post the link here.

 

Thanks!

I will try, but I will first trim it a bit. Being a newbie that might take a minute or two.....

Here's the trimmed video (it is lower quality than the original, but I think you will be able to see the difference).

These links won't work as you keep sending on your youtube studio link copied from your browser window.  Unless you're going to give people your private logon, they cannot see what's in your personal youtube studio page.

 

Instead, open the video in a new window, click on the "Share" button and it will give you the option to copy the video link to clipboard.

 

Post that link here.  It should look something like "https://youtu.be/1kVTYclGorU"

I should probably make it high resolution. (I hope this works. I do appreciate the help.)
