best settings for dirt biking?

I was wondering what settings you people use for dirt biking? what are the best settings? I feel like anything below 80fps creates really blurry video. I found leaving manual audio control off (letting the gopro decide what mic to use) creates horrible audio with both wind noise and inconsistent volume. I haven't noticed a difference with auto low light on or off. I don't know whether to use protune or not and if I did I'm not sure what protune settings to use. what field of view do you prefer? I hate the fish eye effect but like to get as much bike and scenery as possible. For what its worth I ride in the woods 95% of the time. Lets hear your thoughts.

Re: best settings for dirt biking?

I don't have an answer, actually just got the h5 and was wondering if you are using the "rugged"/"underwater" case for riding??  ....I rode similar stuff and worried about smashing it.

 

As yo your question, my friends with older ones use the video/photo mode at 1080 and with that combo you can only get 30fps. With video only I'm sure you can get a it higher fps.  On the older cams I have always noticed odd artifacting even with the higher fps, ultimately you're limited by the size of the CCD.
