You’re skiing or snowboarding down the mountain, trying to capture as much thrilling footage as possible. You’ve got your GoPro mounted on your helmet, in a random spot that “felt” right.
As the terrain changes, you’re constantly moving and tilting your camera, trying to predict what will look best when viewed later. If your GoPro is not properly mounted, it can be difficult to get a steady shot or capture the real feel of the action.
The last thing you want is to find yourself adjusting your GoPro on the go, which can lead to some spectacular crashes and lost cameras.
