7 Ways To Film Cinematic Action Footage With The GoPro Hero 9

  1. Pan forward.
    I simply hold the camera like this, push the button on top, and move forward towards the object that I’m filming.
  2. Pan backwards.
    I simply hold the camera like this, push the button, and then move backwards.
  3. Spin shot.
    I simply hold the camera like this, then spin the camera around as I’m filming the canopy of trees above me.
  4. Crane shot.
    I simply hold the camera like this, push the button, and then film going up the tree, and then down the tree.
    You can also incorporate an angle shot while you’re filming. You’re holding the camera like this, and as you’re going down the tree, you can move it backwards and around like so.

    If you’re filming something far away, it’s good to have something in the foreground so you can get that cinematic motion effect. For example, here, I am filming a log with my GoPro.
  5. TimeWarp
    You can also use the TimeWarp feature to speed up your filming. Just setup the TimeWarp and then press the button on top.

    If you want to slow down your TimeWarp to slow motion, just push the side button. Now, you can see it’s at half-speed, and so everything that you film will be in slow motion. When you want to change it back to high speed, just push the side button again. To stop, just push the button on top. The TimeWap feature comes in really handy if you’re hiking a trail or biking along a bike path. Just hit the side button if you want to slow it down into half speed.
  6. Film Underwater
    The GoPro enables you to film cinematic footage while underwater or just above the water.

    Here are the settings for filming my 4K video. It’s 4K at 24 frames per second. The lens is wide. I use the boost mode and the HyperSmooth to get smooth footage.
  7. Edit Video Footage With GoPro App
    Another great benefit of the GoPro Hero 9 is that you can use the GoPro Quik app on your phone to edit the video footage. All you have to do is download and install the GoPro Quik app from the Apple Store or Google Play Store and then you can control your video camera.

    You can also use the GoPro Quik app to edit your video footage, and quickly and easily make a video slideshow. This saves you a ton of time because you don’t have to be at your computer and you don’t have to lug around a big camera.

All you need to record cinematic video footage while you’re traveling,
is your GoPro Hero 9 and your phone.
