Audio Issues
When I got the Hero5 I immediately switched Audio to “Wind only”. For some reason I had switched it back to “Auto” and forgot about it. Many clips I captured this day started with muted sound. And some of the clips were muted at multiple positions. Background: The Hero5 has 3 microphone. It calculates a stereo sound out of it. If the wind noise is to strong (Auto mode) or if it is set to “Wind only”. It switches to mono on chooses the microphone with least wind noise.

These are no official trails. So I will not post any information about the exact location. If you want to do some trail riding in Austria have a look at these destinations:

Reschenpass, Nauders, Reschen:
Saalbach Hinterglemm (also downhill tracks):

Frame: Specialized Enduro S-Works 26″ 2013
Fork: Rock Shox Lyrik 170 mm travel
Custom built. Pictures:

When I ride the enduro bike I use the GoPro Chesty mount. It’s not perfect and I have to tighten it quite a bit. With video stabilization it seems to work quite good.

ProTune Settings:
Color: Flat
WB: Native
EV Comp: -0.5
Sharp: Low
Others: Standard
It was quite dark in the wood. But the sky was very bright compared to the ground. I used Adobe Premiere Lumetry Color effect to get the color and sharpness back. I’m still learning with this. For most of the video I used one setting. At some positions I used other settings when there was too much “bright” sky in the image.

I filmed in 2.7K SuperView with digital video stabilization. The source video size is. 2704×2032. I cropped this to YouTube 1440p – which is 2560×1440. So I’m able to fine tune the vertical position. And maybe the SuperView effect/distortion is minimized a very little bit.
