This was my first time-lapse experiment with the GoPro 8 mounted on my bicycle handlebars.
The journey starts off from my house, I then navigate through many different roads, paths, villages, government centers, etc. to my destination at Impact Muangthong Thani just north of where I live in the city.
On viewing the footage I learned but didn’t remember, as you’ll see in another video, that handlebar movement can make the video a headache to watch, this is especially multiplied with a time-lapse because the frames are further apart, therefore making the movement jolting. I believe the solution is to use a chesty (chest mount), but I’m afraid that you’ll be seeing my two arms to the side of the screen all the time. Also I’m not much of a fan of the chest mount because it is not stealth enough.
Even with the above said, I still like the video, and on the plus side it requires very little, if none, post production, apart from adding two music clips.
The route I took is as follows;
- Prachachuen Road
- Phong Phet Intersection
- Ngam Wong Wan 33 Alley
- Dhurakij Pundit University
- North Park (Rajpruek) Golf Course
- Khon Ruk Thin Community Village
- Government Center (Chaengwattana)
- Chaengwattana Road
- Liap Klong Prapa Road
- Impact Muangthong Thani
