The lanyard mount is mainly designed to make the camera accessible at any time—to record video and snap pictures without having to hold the device while going about your day. It is also the best mount to record first-person Story Mode videos. We have developed a high-end automatic image stabilization (AIS) feature that will greatly improve otherwise choppy captures, delivering the most stabilized footage possible. Regular video footage when hanging from the lanyard mount though, will be rougher than other options because of the camera's natural swinging motion. Video recording while on the move in this way is only recommended if you are aiming for that type of raw-action effect. We recommend either stabilizing the camera with your hand or using one of our other mounts (coil, windshield, clip) to record regular video.
The automatic image stabilization (AIS) feature is always on. The AIS does not affect image resolution when activated, however the Field of View (FOV) will be reduced.
