What is Motovlog?
A motovlog is a type of video log recorded by a person while riding a motorcycle. A person who creates motovlogs is known as a motovlogger, and the action of making motovlogs is called motovlogging. Yes this is exactly true and it clearly explains what exactly motovlog is. And all motovloggers upload their videos in YouTube.
Before going further about motovlog we need to know what is vlogging! Its very simple, we all know what is blog. Blog is a website where we write our thoughts, topics related to anything, tutorial, reviews, sharing experience, etc.. Vlog is another form of Blog, which means instead of writing and making visitors/readers to read we instead make a video and make visitors to watch the video which will be more interesting with good videography. For example if i write a review of a bike then it is called blog, if i make a review video of bike then it is Vlog. simple it is right?
What camera does Motovloggers use?
Ok now we got to know about motovlog. Moto means motorcycle and Vlog means Video log. Every motovlogger or a vlogger need a camera. Normally apart from motovlogger other vloggers use mobile camera or DSLR. But when it comes to Motovlog its different. Almost all motovloggers use action camera which is smart as it is small in size. Most of the Motovloggers use GoPro, which is one of the best action camera which has 170 degree wide angle view. But GoPro is bit expensive, there are other action camera aswell. In that one of the cheap n best is SJcam SJ4000. Will talk more about camera later, right now we got to know what kind of camera motovloggers use.
So where does motovloggers mount their action camera? Simple answer is on their helmet. There are many places to mount the camera but helmet is primary.
