- Try to keep the camera in line with the horizon. It's a bit harder when walking compared to other modes of moving, but the tilt lines on the camera screen will help you.
- You can try putting the phone in a pouch around your neck or taped on your chest. That should help keep the camera steady.
- You might also try to use a selfie stick which might be more comfortable to hold than the phone itself.
- Normally you would use an automatic capture mode. However, you can also use the manual mode if you for some reason want custom control over when an image is captured.
- For example, the manual mode might be a good idea if your images turn out blurry—try stopping for each image you take.
- Ride slow and preferably on smooth surfaces. This has two reasons: to reduce blur that results from shocks absorbed by the bike and to make sure your phone doesn’t pop out of the holder.
- To be on the safe side, we strongly suggest that you use rubber bands or lanyards to secure your phone to the mount.
- For capturing on more bumpy rides (and also those on sand, gravel, and dirt roads) we recommend using an action camera.
- The position of the mount also affects potential glare from the dashboard (that will be visible in your images). You can also try a few other tricks for reducing glare:
- Remove any lighter objects from your dashboard.
- Cover the dashboard with a black matt cloth (like felt).
- Try a DIY polarizer filter. You can use a lens from disposable 3D glasses from the cinema—cut it out and tape it over your camera lens. You might want to try rotating and turning it around to find the position that works best for you.
