Hiking with a GoPro Helmet Camera, Oklahoma Wichita Mountains

This weekend, Eiger went on his first hike with us in Oklahoma’s Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge. I left behind my DSLRs in favor of our much lighter iPhone, Leica, and new GoPro HD Hero Helmet Cam. If you’ve debated getting one of these gadgets, take the plunge! They are so cool – and easy. (I can’t wait to see a video of Nathan skiing with the GoPro on his helmet!)

First, we set the camera to shoot stills (at about 3 second intervals), then switched to video. My favorite stills are shown below (with minimal editing…the quality obviously doesn’t compare to a DSLR, but it does generate some cool fisheye-looking wide angles). We used a 4GB card and got 300+ stills plus a 30 minute video before the card ran out of memory.

And here’s a clipped video (only about 2-3 minutes):

Fun new toy! 🙂 And I highly recommend the Wichitas; it’s only about 1.5 hours from OKC and so, so lovely. Plus, you can see lots and lots of wild buffalo! That was a first for me. Very cool!

I am Holly Baumann Ambuehl, founding member of Mosaic Collective, LLC, which was founded in early 2017 and is based in Central Illinois. I own and operate Mosaic Collective with my partner in business and life, my husband, Nathan.

My blog posts feature client work, but I just love to write, so I also write about owning a business, food and drink, travel, and sometimes, my personal life! I am always honored when clients trust me to capture their vision, and equally so when my readers converse with me about what I've photographed or expressed here. I hope we'll have an opportunity to collaborate professionally and/or become friends. I'd love to hear what you think! - Holly
