    That looks brilliant. Did you have travel far to get there?

    Thanks for posting.

    Looked like a good run.

    That's a pretty good camera angle. What did you use to mount it on?

    Camera high up makes it look less choppy than low down. Nice autumn colours too.

    I like that , does anyone know how the video was made? A following drone or even a towed miniature barrage balloon with a camera on it's nose.

    or maybe just a camera on a stick fixed to the stern ??

    I don't think it is in this case Mark as the camera seems to be moving somewhat independently of the canoe.

    My guess is that the "stick" is a bit springy.

    Could be ... I wonder where I can get a springy stick ... the results seem so much better than I get with a solid pole

    If you just go onto Jason's Tumblehome site and under that video you can just ask him. It might take a couple of days but I'm sure he will reply.

    The camera "movement" looks like image stabilisation applied on the computer after shooting.

    You win the prize Panda ... I checked down in the comments below Jason's video and the question was asked ~6 days ago and has been answered by Jason, Go-Pro Image Stabilisation.

    Springy Sticks are sold as fishing rods - often cheap on boot sales.
    This post may vanish at any moment.

    ... That's a quandary, I've sea fishing boat rods that are way more rigid than my canoe pole, so I wonder what line rating I might need?
    ... but it now seems that the effect was generated by post-capture image stabilization editing ... I might play with that first.
