Strive it with the digital camera each forward of you and following you. For assured carvers solely—wielding a selfie stick on a quick run could be harmful.
When to Time-Lapse
Motion cams take nice stills too. Set your digital camera to take one shot each half-second whereas it’s mounted on a selfie persist with make share-worthy GIFs or an excessive new Tinder profile pic. Should you’re capturing a good friend hitting a leap or doing a nasty flip, attempt Burst mode. Then choose probably the most epic nonetheless from the dozen or so the digital camera grabs.
When to 4K
Reserve 4K photographs for once you actually need to reproduce the scene, like taking a panning shot of the gorgeous view from the mountaintop.

Use it sparingly—it devours reminiscence card house and battery life.
