Getting the best out of your action camera

I like Kevin. He gets right into it and simply recommends the 10 best things to do to get better images with your action camera. He also explains why you should do that. As he is explaining there is some good footage to reinforce the points he is making. You might not want your action camera for snowboarding or other action sports. His tips cover using the camera not the activity and so the things he recommends are camera-based and not expecting you to be like him doing what he is doing. It is a genuinely helpful video. So what are his tips?

Get a selfie stick (gimble)
Back up batteries
Frame rate
External sound
Close ups
Helmet Mount
Clean lens
Be selective

I do have a selfie stick for my GoPro and it has been better for me to use it because I have a bad habit of getting my fingers in the way.If you are doing rugged sports and activities then there are really durable gimbles available. Normal ones like mine are not that expensive and since it also connects to my camera as well then it was a few dollars well spent. I also now understand better about setting a frame rate. My mission now is to look for the sorts of external recording devices I might be able to use.
