Trails of India
Only riding your bike is not that cool anymore. The new trending thing is travel Vlog or video blog. Now we all know what a blog is, but what differentiates a normal blog from a video blog is the content is in the form of video. As it is in an audiovisual format, it is much more interactive and interesting for the audience to experience. And such is the craze, a large number of prominent media houses are also employing Vloggers into their service. So it became clear that making a video of anything and everything, instead of writing down those experiences is called Vlog. So, if a travel blog is all about writing all the experiences that you have during your tour, a travel Vlog captures the entire trip, in an interactive manner. And as the audience can themselves experience the place through your lenses, this mode of communication is much more effective than the good’ol blogs. And to make a Vlog even more attractive, especially if you are recording your journey while riding a bike then it becomes important to have a Pov camera or point of view camera. In this article we will discuss the various types of pov that you can have for yourself, to capture all those brilliant biking moments. So let’s begin without any further ado.
GoPro Hero5 Black
This is the latest model from the house of GoPro; this is a 12-megapixel camera with sensor capable mode. It can capture 4K at 30fps, 1080p at 120fps and 720p at 240fps. And not only video options, you can capture brilliant still images with it also. This one comes handy especially during the shoot of a time-lapse shoot. All these features and much more can be employed by an inbuilt touchscreen. It is also completely waterproof thus making it an ideal partner for bike trips.
Sony FDR- X1000V
This wonderful piece of technology is from the house of Sony, can very well be termed as an action-packed camera, or rather the most suitable camera for your helmet mount. Initially modelled to rival the GoPro, it has been able to create a space for itself. Like the GoPro, it can also capture videos such as 4K at 30fps, 1080p at 120fps, and 720p at 240fps. It has got an inbuilt library of photo modes so that you have a solution for every photogenic situation. It can work up to 10 meters underwater. Priced competitively, it costs a bit less than its rival the GoPro. So it is basically a reasonable deal if you ask me.
GoPro HERO4 Silver
This model is the older person of the already discussed GoPro Hero 5. Although there is the latest model available in the market, it can still give tough competition to its younger sibling and also to other brands vying for the lucrative market. It has got amazing 12mp sensors which can capture 4K video at as low as 15fps. But its glory moment is capturing 1080p at 60fps. It has also got a touchscreen, much like its younger sibling. You also can connect it with-Fi. There is the GoPro app through which the Wi-Fican be controlled. This camera is actually a budget camera, giving you the technological advantages, as well as not hurting the pocket much.
TomTom Bandit action camera
If you want a camera with GPS facility then this one is definitely for you. Combined with sports tracking facility, this one is best for capturing all the biking adventures that you are planning to do. Apart from doing all that a camera must do, it can also measure your heart rate! And not only that, it can also calculate the highest adrenaline moment that you have in your entire trip. These all are cool bike accessories! Isn’t it?
