    What up dama community!

    I‘m looking for a new camera setup to level up the clips. What do you use mainly to film all your stuff ? More POV with a gopro ? Or fullbody clips with a professional camera ?

    thank you in advance

    POV gives you a nice perspective of how the trick looks but I honestly love full body clips more. You can get a lot more creative with angles, distance, focus, scenery, etc. With POV you’re pretty limited with just one angle, a wide and narrow distance, and the scenery is the ground+a little bit of what’s around peeking out. The distance of the GoPro from your head to ground isn’t enough to give the subject (you) enough separation and create the bokeh to emphasize the subject.
    There’s so many cheap cameras that are good now it’s really the lens that helps separate an okay setup to a great setup.
    Anything like the Canon Rebel, Nikon D3XXX series are solid choice. I personally use a Sony a6000. It’s 5 years old but the specs are still great. 1080p 60fps, good auto focus, and affordable.

    Does anyone have a chest mounted cam? I saw one from Casio a while back and thought that it would be an interesting perspective.
