In mountain biking, cycling or trials, the paths often pass through undergrowths, alternating shade and light. Your onboard camera must have an excellent optical quality to track changes in brightness.

So choose a camera that has an image stabilizer for downhill mountain biking or for mechanical sports on uneven ground.

In sports where you often use a camera mounted on the chest or on the handlebar, prefer a model with integrated box. This protective case absorbs shock and protects the device. The caisson is an indispensable protection in the event of a fall! The G-Eye 900 could be an apt choice.

Rule # 2: Consider changing your camera from place to place.

If you place an embedded camera on a headset throughout your journey, rendering could easily be monotonous especially if you want to share it with your loved ones.

Switching your camera to the frame, the handlebars, the helmet (if we take the example of a bike ride) will be the best way to get several angles of view and thus come to enhance your film.

Rule # 3: Play on the resolution of your onboard camera

Intended for sportsmen and women in motion, the onboard cameras are designed to be started with a single gesture. If your camera offers this option, go from 30 frames per second to 60 frames per second before entering a spectacular passage or performing a maneuver that is of particular interest to you.

The human eye does not see the difference at normal speed, but the speed of 60 frames per second allows you to slow down when editing your movie.

Sports cameras usually have a WiFi connection that allows you to connect them to a Smartphone to watch your images in real time.

If your embedded camera has a built-in display, you can watch the movie immediately afterward.
