4 GoPro Tips for Snowboarding Selfies

These four GoPro tips for snowboarding selfies will help you get better shots the first time you use them. Let’s get started.

  1. gopro tip snowboarderUse a Jaws Flex Clamp. This flex-neck clamp will mount just about anywhere. The neck is removable and you can mount the camera directly to the clamp. This is great for eliminating any shake. The clamp comes very well reviewed – boasting a 4.5 out of 5 stars on Amazon. GoPro’s version of the Jaws Flex Clamp is $34.99. Check out the Jaws Flex Clamp on Amazon.com | Amazon.ca | Amazon.co.uk Interested in an alternative (less expensive) clamp? See some below the video.
  2. Pair your GoPro to the Wi-Fi Remote. If you are shooting solo, the remote is the way to go. While you can set the GoPro to time lapse mode (multi-shot continuous: shooting 1 image every half second) this might not be enough to capture your snowboarding action. With the remote, you can trigger the photo burst setting (see more in tip #3) and get the shot you want.

  3. Use the photo burst mode. With the multi-shot burst, you can shoot up to 30 (12MP) images over 3 seconds. This is the setting used in the video below. With this setting, be sure to hit the shutter a second before you want it to begin. There is always a slight delay from the remote to the camera.
  4. Use Anti-fog Inserts. The cold air will almost certainly cause moisture to condense inside your waterproof casing. A simple silica-based insert will absorb the humidity and prevent it from fogging up your lens – and ruining your photo. I use the CamKix anti-fog insert. Here are all the anti-fog options.
