With summer in full swing, we’re excited to share a new 4K edit from Snap in its natural habitat: capturing stunning footage during all of life’s adventures!
We had the pleasure of working with professional mountain biker, Dustin Schaad, to shoot a dusky mountain bike ride outside of Auburn, CA, a couple of weeks ago. Check it out:
Schaad rides for Discrete Clothing, among others, and has ridden in notable competitions like the Red Bull Rampage; you can check out more of his biking here and here. “The Auburn-area trails are some of the best, year-round mountain biking trails in all of Northern California,” says Schaad. With over 200 miles of singletrack, you could spend a full year there and never ride the same loop twice.”
We’re pleased with how the image quality is improving, but also are still making tuning improvements to the lens, camera firmware, and flight control software. Astute observers may notice minor issues with sharpness, chromatic aberration, yaw movement, and lens distortion. We are working with the best image tuning firm in the world to continue to refine this so the image quality will be world class at launch.
We can’t wait to share more footage in the coming months! Leave any questions in the comments, and let us know where you’re excited to take Snap!
