POV Helmet CamI’m not a big fan of point of view (POV) video, as I find almost all POV videos next to impossible to watch more than a few seconds. POV videos have a lot of sudden pans and tilts and are often very bumpy as they follow the head movements of the shooter, or the handlebar or pole that the cam is mounted on and no matter how smooth a shooter tries to be, things inevitably get bumpy.

There’s a new algorithm being worked on that should help solve these issues. Check out First-Person Hyperlapse and let me know if that doesn’t look like a very elegant solution to the problem I described above?

Bravo Microsoft, now please work on a version for those of us not using Windows, thanks!
