Skydiving expert Angus Sellen takes us on a death-defying flight through some incredibly rocky ravines of Shark’s Tooth Mountain in New Zealand. The fisheye perspective of his GoPro MAX camera captured a truly immersive visual that’ll have you holding on for dear life.
THE BEST Gopro
We’ve seen lots of cool things turned on lathes over the years. But one thing we’ve never seen is what the wood sees as it spins around. Mr. Michal decided to clamp his GoPro into the business end of his lathe to see just what that might look like, and the result is unsurprisingly dizzying as it ramps up from 14 to 1800 RPM.
Take a ride along the skinniest line possible with mountain biker “Dangerous Dave” Herr. Watch as he negotiates wooden paths, some of which are roughly the width of his forks in this award-winning clip in the Pinkbike GoPro of the World Best Line contest. Watch from a different perspective here.
We’ve been on horseback, but we never thought we’d get to go on a turtleback ride. Thanks to YouTuber The Fish Whisperer, we can now see what it’s like to be a turtle, as this little fella heads off into the muddy water, and pops his head up for the occasional fishy snack.
A specialized multitool for users of GoPro and other compatible action cameras, the pocket-sized Quist offers several functions in one accessory: tripod, MicroSD card holder, lens remover, screw tightener, carabiner, keychain, and its screw head doubles as a bottle opener.
5MadMovieMakers mounted a GoPro Fusion 360º camera to a model railcar then sent it on a wild journey from a backyard to the beach to the ocean. We’ll forgive the couple of obvious edits as it’s such a thrilling ride. Try spinning the camera and watch from different angles.
GoPro shares some of the best videos that were made by their action cameras this 2018. Some of them were made by athletes and endorsers, while some were submitted by users or shared online. The video also highlights GoPro 7’s impressive electronic image stabilization.
Diver Phill Gordon captured this incredible, but all too short footage of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef using his GoPro Fusion 360º camera, switching into “overcapture” mode to produce a spherical projection of the fish as they swim around his fellow undersea explorers.
Director Claudiu Voicu took what could have been a typical snowboarding video into a visual masterpiece. He says his primary goal was to include the most challenging scene transitions he could think of, and we think he succeeded. The monsters just makes it that much better.
Another year has passed, and GoPro action cameras yet again helped to capture some of the year’s most epic, beautiful, entertaining, and dramatic sights. There’s no way a sub-3-minute video can sum it all up, but it’s still worth a watch – even if it is just a commercial.
Model railroad enthusiast Jim Zimmerlin attached a GoPro Hero 5 Session camera to the side of a G-Scale model train, and set it loose on a course that runs through and around his house. The side perspective of the train makes you feel like you’re small enough to fit inside.
The GoPro Fusion has two lenses that create 360º videos at 5.2K/30fps or 3K/60fps. It has several modes, including a sweet Matrix-like freeze pan effect. Don’t want spherical videos? Crop it at different angles to look like you used multiple cameras. Drops 11/2017 for $700.
