I picked up a GoPro HD Hero 2 Surf Edition to take out on the boat. I took it out yesterday for a test run. I attached the "permanent" surfboard mount to my longer board which is approximately 5.5 feet long. It's attached to the very ti(front foot) of the board facing the surfer. I would like it to capture the surfer's face and legs somewhat. However, when I tilt the camera all the way up, it is not able to capture the surfer's face unless the surfer gets reallllly low. It only picks up the chest and lower.
Any tips on placement of the camera? I've tried using the 720p 60fps which uses the standard field of vision.
