The following are the recommended items (based on our own experience) for shooting with a GoPro camera.
As you will note from our "Recommended Equipment" page, we still have the HERO4 Silver as the recommended camera. We are still in the process of testing the HERO5 Black in various game situations, but feel comfortable recommending the following configuration and setup.
Frames Per Second (FPS): 60
Field of View (FOV): Linear (wide for short backstops; narrow for deep)
Vibration Reduction On (probably not required unless fence is weak)
SanDisc Extreme Plus SD Card (64GB)
While we use the card listed above, for a listing of all of the cards that GoPro claims to support, click here
Tripod Mount (Required)
Source: Now available as an optional accessory in the bracket store.
