    I have the head strap but I remember one of Mr. Bakers first videos where he had his on his head and it was constantly moving. I知 thinking I値l be using the chest mount and I値l be using some of the 1/2 PVC ideas from a link posted on this thread.

    If you go and view on youtube several of the videos you will probably notice that any of the ones which use the body, chest or head mount cameras are not very easy on the eyes to watch, they put off too much quick and jerkey movement, a fixed mounted stand with a wide angle view is much better IMO.

    Buckethead, you are right, my first video was with a GoPro on a head mount. It made me dizzy trying to edit it. I won稚 be doing that again. I am certainly no pro but I am happy to share my experiences. By far the most stable shots are from a fixed mount. Buy a cheap tripod or some other fixed mount or make one. I have a tripod from WalMart and a clamp on mount from GoPro that will quickly and easily clip on a boat windshield. You can also hold the clamp mount in your hand for mobile shots.

    I also use a chest harness from time to time. You can get better close up shots with it but, like the head strap, it has a lot of movement. It isn稚 as bad as the head strap. Also, with the chest harness it is sometimes hard to see where the camera is pointing.

    Sound is a whole different can of worms. Wind is often a problem. If you have the camera on a fixed mount and you move away or turn your back, sound can be bad.

    I bought a Sony video camera that I can zoom in and out with and attach a wireless mic. I always use it on a tripod and use the GoPro on the chest harness or clamp mount for a different angle view. Editing video from two different cameras is more than twice the work.

    You just have to go out and experiment. Your set up will depend on what you are trying to shoot. Like fishing or anything else, you can make it as complicated and expensive as you want or just keep it simple and have fun. I just do videos for the fun of it. I don稚 put ads in them or try to make a dime off of them. I don稚 do them to promote any product. I just hope people get some enjoyment watching them and hopefully learn a thing or two. I just wish I had more time to do them. I haven稚 done a new one in over a year. I was very busy last year with work and spent all of my free time fishing the Crappiemasters circuit. I don稚 plan to fish as many tournaments this year and plan to do more videos.

    Take your camera out and experiment and have fun. Thanks for watching my videos.

    Thanks for the reply Mike. I watched your Black Friday video again last night and seen your tripod setup on the rear deck. As far as the chest mount view I noticed when you did the split screen the chest mount was pointing more toward the water than your target. I知 probably going to start with a solid mount, maybe in one of the rod holders or a clamp on like you said. There痴 no way I壇 want to spend that kind of time editing, you really have to want it to put in that kind of time outside of work and keeping up with everything else in your life. Thanks for the input and I値l be looking forward for the next videos.

    Check out Yolotek. It is a pole light that can be used for a Gopro.

    I was looking forward to more of your dock shooting videos this fall. Did you decide to take a break from making them or did I just miss them?

    IMovie, the free Apple editing software. Pretty basic.

    I was very busy last year fishing the Crappie Masters tournament circuit and simply didn't have time to do more videos. I don't plan to fish as many tournaments this year and hope to do more videos. Thanks for watching.
