. People are starting to get more imaginative now, using poles & drones etc. If you have a windscreen with a grab rail around it, try mounting the camera there. You can then move it around & vary the shots & it makes it easier to film the unexpected dolphin/whale/boat crash etc. There is also less engine vibration at the console.
I think mostly i would like it to film me fishing, at the moment i have to try and hold a fish with one hand and take a picture with the other when i get one. Not always a good idea when anywhere near the Portland race
Hopefully with the go-pro and remote i can quickly turn it on to record me landing and posing with it.
I can see the "backs of peoples heads" would be a bit boring, hopefully move the go-pro to the front now and then, it just might end up a bit low down on the console to get any decent footage.
Can't wait to get started with it. Will have to see what the mounting options are.
Anyone have any tips on mounts that work well?
