GoPro Athlete Tips and Tricks: Rock Climbing with Sierra Blair-Coyle (Ep 19)


Hi everyone, I’m professional rock climber
and GoPro Athlete Sierra Blair-Coyle at the GoPro Mountain Games in Vail and today I’m
going to show you some of the GoPro Athlete Tips and Tricks for climbing with some of
my favorite mounts and modes to shoot on. So today we’re at the climbing wall and I’m
going to show you some mounts you can use indoors and outdoors. So one of my favorite
ones is the Flex Clamp and you can really stick it on any hold. So check it out right
here, you can stick it on a hold, you can stick it on the top of the wall, I mean, just
get creative with it. And the Gooseneck is flexible so you can change the angle of what
you’re shooting, so that’s really cool and just versatile. A second mount I like to use
is the head mount because it gives you the best point of view shot when you’re climbing.
So when this is on, it sits about right here on your forehead and that gives you the best
point of view. I mean it’s literally right where your eyes are, so you’re seeing what
the climber is seeing when you’re shooting with this. The third mount I like is the Chest
Mount, and it’s cool because you can do two different angles. So you can do kind of the
straight forward angle, where you’re looking at the wall, seeing your hands and your feet.
And then if you flip it the other way, upside down, it can look at your face and see your
expressions when you’re climbing. So that’s always really cool when you’re climbing, especially
if you’re doing a strenuous move, just to see the concentration going on in your face
and kind of what you’re going through at that moment. Since we’re shooting indoors today you’re
going to want to use 1440 by 30 frames per second and that really helps capture the low
light. If you go outside, you can still use 1440 but switch it to 48 frames per second
and later you can slow down the footage and that ends up looking very nice. Also if you’re
climbing and you’re not using a body mount, say you have a pole or maybe a friend is shooting
for you, you can do 1080 by 60 frames per second and that will look wonderful as well.
I’m Sierra Blair-Coyle, GoPro Athlete and I just presented the Tips and Tricks today
for you, so hope you like it and good luck shooting.
