20 Jun Spreading the Joe’s Basecamp love in Paris
Here at Joe’s Basecamp we have a thing about exploring and spreading the brand globally by wearing our t-shirts in the action, surely everyone needs to know how and where to train for life’s adventures! Back in June Nikki and I ran the streets of Paris and grabbed some footage as we went. Starting on the steps of the Sacre Coeur in Montmartre we wound our way back down to the Arc de Triomphe taking in some less well known back roads until hitting the bright lights of the Champs Elysee. Strapping on the runners is my favourite way to get to know a city and a great way to balance out the bars sampled later in the day. Tips on how to grab this type of steady footage beneath the video.
How did we grab this footage?
Despite ragged breathing, cobbled roads, tons of steps and wobbly arms the footage is actually very stable. This was thanks to a GoPro mounted on a hand-held gymbal stabiliser: Feiyu G4 QD Handheld Stabilizer for GoPro. Catchy eh!
I’ll definitely be taking this on treks, the gymbal does need batteries along with the GoPro so I’d take a solar charger from Goal Zero as well to top up the power.
