How do you guys have it set up?

I brought the camera on a DH ride this morning and I had the camera right side up and aimed as far up as it would go. After the ride I checked the footage and I was bummed to find it was mostly top tube. At least it looked really nice in HD. haha

Do you guys run the camera mounted upside down and correct the footage in editing to have a better view?

I am pretty curious to hear some tips and tricks to the Chesty mount. :thumb:

You can actually run the camera hanging upside down and there is an option ON THE CAMERA for it to film the right way up so it doesn't have to be corrected for in post processing.

Towing the party line.
The HD cam doesn't have the flip setting in software yet. It's coming though, along with a slew of other options. They sent me over a beta firmware last week to try out. Works great.

Nice!

I also found that if you have Quicktime Pro you can flip the video with 2 clicks. Works great.

Any advise for low light filming? The trails here in the morning where I ride have a bunch of tree cover and the footage is SUPER dark.
