I have a GoPro with a Chesty mount but I seem to have an issue with getting it to point in the right direction. As you can see in my first full edit, here, It seems to piont at the top tube and the ground as soon as I get out of the saddle. I already have it angled as far up as I can.
Has anybody else experienced this problem in the past and know a good and easy fix??
As you can see the Seat post mount works well but I want to be able to vary my camera angle to try and make the videos more interesting.

There is a straight extension which works very well with the chesty. Usually sold with the helmet front mount. I kind of e-bullied them into giving me one but they can be bought 😉
Other options… Mounting the camera high up on my chest gets it more on the slope of my ribs, that works for me. I think the standard response is to mount it upside down but I change camera mounts a lot and that’s kind of irritating.Posted 4 years agoSuperficialMember
Do you mount it upside down? If not change it to ‘upside down’ mode and mount it upside down, this gives a better range of angles.
I find that you need an angle of around 45 degrees between the chest plate and the camera itself. Should be easy enough to achieve without any extra attachments.Posted 4 years agobigjimSubscriber
Presumably in-between reboots, blue screens and general ‘no device connected’ weirdness?
if you are getting blue screen then it isn’t anything to do with go pro software. I think it’s a great package for free, have the occasional crash but just takes a few secs to reload the rpoject.Posted 4 years ago
