Tues McNutt Rip

(Bryon Enns) #1

Riding Area: McNutt

Date: Jan 31-2017

Details: Out for an afternoon Rip

Tux, Al, and KTM-Bryon rip it up. We chased Al around the mtn and had a good ride until the KTM died. Push started her and went straight home. Oh ya, there was carnage of course..

For a second there at the 0:23 mark I thought @tuxedodave clothes-lined himself and that was his head rolling down the trail. I hope @baysam's orange crush issues are nothin serious. The mountain looks like it's in great shape.

Well if you guys jeep posting ride reports I won't be on this site. Minneapolis is freezing.I never get to ride a note and you just rub it in with all of your crazy video.

Which of course I've never crashed on.

@KTM-Bryon what field of view (FOV) setting are you using? I'm guessing it's 16:9 'wide'. If that's right, any chance you can try 16:9 'zoom' (if available) for your next video? I'm curious to know what it looks like.

I will check it out when I get home Friday. I get the feeling some settings changed on the camera since I last looked at the settings.

FYI, I have a Session4. The Hero4 has these options:


Sounds like the Session 4 has 170 deg. and 127 deg. I am shooting at 1080-60fps

GoPro is well known for its fish-eye effect – the way videos and picture bend round the edges. Otherwise known as barrel distortion, this is caused by the wide field of view (FoV) – 170 degrees is captured in front of the camera. The bending can look a little odd and if you want something with straighter lines you can narrow the field to something less curvey. You can change the FoV to 127 degrees, making the distortion less of an issue, but this option is only available for 1,080 and 720 resolutions.

If you can, try shooting your next video at the 'Medium' FOV setting. If you're currently shooting at 60 FPS (or higher), you might (or might not) have to drop the FPS to shoot at a medium FOV.

Just checked the camera, it is set to 1080-60 M, the only other setting for FOV is W.

Ok kool. I was just curious to know if the FOV could be narrower but it seems like you're already at that point.
