Re: Head space question

That looks like a really good way to practice wind.
You managed to get some really good trace in both videos but the first one was just remarkable. I could follow it all the way to the balloons.
Is there a way that youve found to set the camera to see it that well, or was it maybe just the weather that day?

Re: Head space question

I don't set it but the best way is with the sun to your back or to the side. Also, the background has a lot to do with it. If you can get the camera positioned over your right shoulder it helps with trace as well. about 2 ft up and then back behind shooter. Seems to work out the best for vid and spotting shots.

I have a lot of vid. Somewhere I have 1 of my buddy shooting a 260 at high elevation. The sun is to our backs and the trace is unbelievable. It was the best trace I have ever seen in person.
