Q: How to Use Action Camera Mounts?
A: The Basic Set That Comes Together With Your Action Cam
I am assuming you have the mounts that comes together with your action camera for these examples.
It really depends on what you use it for. But, for the those of you who have no clue at all, let me provide 2 examples.
Q: How to charge action cam?
A: Most action cams use a micro-USB cable for charging and data transfer, similar to the one used in android smartphones (at least the older ones, as the newer ones now use USB Type C instead).
Just plug it into any USB adapter or PC and it should be charged in no time.
Oh, and 1 tip. Switch off the camera when charging and don’t switch it on during the charging process because there have been many instances when the battery does not get charged when it’s turned on. So you don’t want that, keep the battery off.
Q: How to Edit Action Camera Videos?
A: It depends on what you want to get out from your videos.
Is it a holiday vlog? Is it a first POV video from your RC drone? Or is it an action video mountain biking through the forest?
Any editing software will work in my opinion. Windows Movie Maker (Windows) or iMovie (Mac) will do the work but if you wanted to perform specific tasks such as removing the fisheye effect, stabilizing your shaky shot or creating slow-motion/time-lapse, you’d have to use apps that are meant for it.
Q: How to Mount Action Camera On Helmet?
A: If you do own an action camera that comes with the relevant accessories, it’d be very straightforward because all the mounts for to mount on your helmet are already included and it’s just a matter of snapping mounts together and using the strong double sided tape (provided) to stick it onto your helmet.
However, if you regularly use it on your helmet, you’d probably be better off investing in one of these helmet mounts that will fit more securely and has more flexibility on the helmet.
Q: How to Choose Action Camera?
A: 1.Decide on Price & Budget Based On Use
If you are planning to use it regularly and value good video quality, most good action cams that have good image quality and solid build, are priced above 100 USD (Incl. coupons & offers).
Conversely, if you’re using it rarely such as during holidays and don’t require a flagship model, a budget of under 100 is perfectly fine.
Q: How to Connect Action Camera to Wi-Fi & To Your Phone?
A: There are many questions and it differs from camera to camera.
Also note that it only works with action cams with Wi-Fi capabilities.
1. Press the up button to show Wi-Fi name and pw.
However, generally, for 95% of the action cams out there, all you’d have to do is press / press & hold the up button which then the screen should show the wi-fi SSID and password.
2. Connect To Your Phone By Connecting To Wi-Fi
What’s left now is to turn on your phone and connect to the action cam’s Wi-Fi.
3. Open Up The App.
If you have not downloaded the app, go ahead to the manufacturer’s or seller’s page on the action cam and download it from there.
