I'm planning a C2C in a day ride this summer to raise a bit of money for a local charity- so I'm quite keen to do my best to document it as hopefully this will bring in some more donations post event.
My budget it a bit tight, so I'm wondering what the most cost effective way of filming everything on the bike would be (I'm planning on having a couple of mates in a car for support so they could probably do a bit of filming with a borrowed dSLR).
Things I'm considering:
Buying a second hand GoPro or similar
Using the camera on the iPhone 6s
Hiring a newer GoPro for the day
Last time I did any serious filming/editing it was back in the days of using Mini DV tapes, so that's why I'd consider just using an iPhone or an older GoPro or cheaper/similar make (since both of these are easily superior to cameras from 10+ years ago). I don't want to use hours of footage- probably a condensed 6-10 minute video of the best bits (Hard Knott pass etc).
If anyone has any experience or advice on cheaper cameras or hiring I'd be very grateful.
