here is a vid from this afternoon's session.janaeo wrote:anyone using a contour, post ya vid, wana see the vid quality.
ive just bought a contour roam 2 (blue) line mount head mount etc,
cant wait to get on the water and try it out.
If I could narrow the view down 50% then I would choose the bottom picture (kite mount). To see the wave height even clearer simply fly the kite lower. No nauseating shaking, no lines in the middle of the view. But yeah, the line mount picture is an awesome place if we could just solve the shaking problem completely.having the cam on the kite, you cannot tell the size of the surf and you cannot see the rider, you cannot record what your eyes are seeing, so what is the point? personally above the head and above the depower/power straps are the best place.
Which one of the below pictures you rather have in your kite photo collection
here's the deal, when I originally set out to design a kite line mount, I was merely looking at being able to take stills using one of the early generation gopros. these were not HD capable at the time so I never focused on anything but doing stills. once the HD was released I started using the same mount for videos. I knew the video footage quality would suffer but the mount still worked.ChristoffM wrote:

Are there cameras like the GoPro but with much narrower field of view? What was the camera and field of view you used for the bottom picture?
No, I think it means that the weight of the camera is centered between the lines, rather than dangling below it like the first version.Chickenwing504 wrote:Stringy, I congratulate you on being a photo-something-or-another genius. I saw that the line mount 2.0 is "exactly weight counterbalanced", does that mean it sinks with the float now? I've lost my camera, mount, and float before and was able to find it in the surf shortly after. I would like to know if this is still an option.
