Updated 2018 GoPro Chesty Mount

Published

on

In this video are taking a closer look at the new and updated 2018 GoPro Chesty. GoPro quietly released several new products this summer including an updated seeker backpack, silicon cases, and a newly updated chest mount. The design is quite different and now has a large backplate. I find it has a very similar design to the chest mount that is included when you buy the Seeker backpack. I think this is to help provide a more stable platform for this who like to mount gimbals when mountain biking. The larger chest plate should help prevent the gimbal from bouncing around as much.

This video is more of a “closer look” style video mainly due to the fact that there is not a lot of information or photos on the GoPro website about this newly updated chest mount and some people may want to have a better look at it before they decide if it is worthwhile to upgrade.

Hero 7 Black Now Includes A Photo Timer

Published

on

One little talked about feature that is included with the new GoPro Hero 7 Black is the addition of a photo timer. It is a small feature but a very important and welcome addition. In the past, if you wanted to get a shot of yourself you would have to set the GoPro to time-lapse mode, grab some frames and then choose the one you wanted. With the addition of voice commands with the Hero 5 series, you could shout at the GoPro to take a photo. This worked not to bad, however sometimes in noisy environments it did not always work, not to mention looking foolish in certain situations.

With the Hero 7 Black when in photo mode you will notice a new photo timer icon on the left side of the screen. You can select it and set a delay of either 3 seconds or 10 seconds. After the shutter button is pressed a countdown animation and audible beeps indicate when the photo will be taken. Such a simple but important feature. Watch our video demonstration of the new Hero 7 Black photo timer in action.
