When to Slo-Mo

Slo-mo is rubbish for point-of-view angles. Reserve it for if you’re capturing video of your mates—place the digicam at floor degree to movie a trick—or if you’re (sigh) utilizing a selfie stick.
When to Helmet Mount
The helmet mount is the simplest method for many snowy actions. It captures issues the best way you see them, so that you need a good, fats body: Shoot 1080p at 60 fps in Broad mode, with stabilization turned on.

Use the identical video settings as with the helmet mount, however in the event you’re going for an enormous trick, crank the body charge to 120 to slurp up extra element. Strive it with the digicam each forward of you and following you. For assured carvers solely—wielding a selfie stick on a quick run might be harmful.
When to Time-Lapse
Motion cams take nice stills too. Set your digicam to take one shot each half-second whereas it’s mounted on a selfie keep on with make share-worthy GIFs or an excessive new Tinder profile pic. When you’re capturing a pal hitting a bounce or doing a nasty flip, strive Burst mode. Then choose probably the most epic nonetheless from the dozen or so the digicam grabs.
When to 4K
Reserve 4K photographs for if you actually need to reproduce the scene, like taking a panning shot of the beautiful view from the mountaintop. The Hero6 now does 4K at 60 frames per second, so it’s additionally unbelievable for capturing extremely detailed motion photographs. Use it sparingly—it devours reminiscence card house and battery life.
