Tips for Getting the Best Pics and Videos

Tips for Getting the Best Pics and Videos

Use 'Normal' quality photos (as opposed to 13.2MP) while riding/in motion

Try to avoid looking directly into the sun or at particularly bright/reflective surfaces

Try to maintain focus on one area 

The focal area of Raptor's camera begins at 1 meter (3 ft.), try to avoid taking photos of near objects

Lower lighting such as night conditions may produce poor quality photos. Day time, overcast, sunrise or sunset should produce high quality photos

While moving, try to stay looking ahead and not to the side to avoid blur

The crop mode (road or MTB) is according to your riding position. Choose the "Road" option if your head position is lower on a mountain bike

Remember that if you are standing and taking pictures or videos, the camera is pointing slightly higher than the natural horizon
