THE BEST Pov

Retrieving a Frisbee

Retrieving a Frisbee

YouTuber Buttered Side Down used an array of clever editing, camera tricks, and VFX to make his first-person quest for his lost frisbee far more daunting than it really was. The only thing better than this would be a VR version of the video.

Parkour Course POV Run

Parkour Course POV Run

Run along with athlete Calen Chan as he heads down the Skyladder parkour course built down the side of Tianman Mountain in China. Not only is the 999 step-tall course the longest on the planet, but its built on a 45° incline to add to the challenge. The slide part looks like fun.

GoPro Session Hot Wheels Car

GoPro Session Hot Wheels Car

If you ever wanted to know how folks shoot those awesome POV videos of Hot Wheels cars, Adafruit Industries is here to help. In this clip, they show how to 3D print a vehicle that doubles as a case for a GoPro Session camera. Download the STL files here.

Mountain Bearking

Mountain Bearking

Riding your bike on a downhill mountain path is dangerous enough all on its own – hence the helmets and pads these guys are wearing. But this ride down a course in Slovakia provided an added source of peril – a bear. Thankfully, the killer animal gave up the chase rather quickly.

The Bucket

The Bucket

TheFieldLab mounted a camera at the bottom of a bucket filled with water, then placed it outdoors where various animals might drink from it. The unique perspective from beneath the surface is both silly and soothing.

Seasonal Drone Time-Lapse

Seasonal Drone Time-Lapse

Watch the season fade in and out over a farm in this short and sweet time-lapse. Photographer Will Strathmann shot the footage intermittently from 2015 to 2017. He tried his best to fly his drone on the same path then aligned the clips to pull off the transitions.

Mineshaft MTB Downhill

Mineshaft MTB Downhill

Riding a mountain bike at downhill speeds in the daylight is daunting enough, but Kilian Bron and his buddies tried something even more sketchy – a ride through an abandoned mineshaft using only their headlamps to guide their way through the dark and dank maze.

Insane Kayak Ride

Insane Kayak Ride

Watch as daredevil kayakers Rush Sturges and Ben Marr ride through a drainage canal that’s just inches wider than their tandem boat, as they take a thrilling and dangerous ride that could have easily snapped their paddles – or their bones – if anything went wrong.

A Day on the Life

A Day on the Life

(PG-13, Gross) An unaverage man as he goes about his daily routine. Spencer Higginson’s horror short film starts out cute, but quickly delves into Don’t Hug Me, I’m Scared territory. It seems like there’s a lot to digest here, but we’d rather not watch it again.

Hot Wheels Acid Trip

Hot Wheels Acid Trip

5MadMovieMakers take us on a hypnotic ride along a track lined with LEDs, glow sticks, lasers, and fire. The first-person view was shot with a GoPro Hero4 Session installed onto a Bull Whip car, which has a convenient mounting location on its roof spoiler.

IndyCar VisorCam

IndyCar VisorCam

Some incredibly immersive POV footage shot from the visor of IndyCar racer Graham Rahal as he runs a handful of test laps around Phoenix International Raceway’s mile-long circuit, pulling some insane G-forces along the way.

Drone Meets Paragliders

Drone Meets Paragliders

If the incredible mountaintop footage of Tirol, Austria that Team Blacksheep captured with their TBS Vendetta FPV flying racer wasn’t enough, stick around long enough, and you’ll see the remote-controlled flyer zig and zag around a duo of paragliders.

Mountain Bike Portals

Mountain Bike Portals

We’ve always wanted a real-life version of the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device, so we could quickly dart from location to location. Red Bull envisions what downhill mountain biking might be like if extreme sports junkies had a portal gun in their bag of tricks.

Crazy LEGO Railways

Crazy LEGO Railways

YouTuber BANANENBUURMAN loves to build over-the-top dioramas and environments using a LEGO model train as his main form of transportation. He’s built a set that runs through an aquarium tunnel, a ridiculously long track, and even figured out how to do a loop de loop.

Hübschhorn Drone Flyover

Hübschhorn Drone Flyover

YouTuber Gab707 makes us step back and appreciate how far drones and cameras have come with this jaw-dropping sweep of the Hübschhorn mountain in Valais, Switzerland. The video was taken “only” on a GoPro Hero4 Session.  FPV feed here.

GoPro: Best of 2016

GoPro: Best of 2016

2016 wasn’t exactly a stellar year for GoPro. But the company still makes damn good cameras, and their brand is still synonymous with the action camera market. Here’s a sampling of the shots made possible by GoPro from this year alone.

Nigel Sylvester: GO! Tokyo

Nigel Sylvester: GO! Tokyo

Pro BMX rider Nigel Sylvester eats at Robot Restaurant, tries sumo wrestling and much more in the latest episode of his hyperactive POV series. Featuring cameos by soccer player Giovani Dos Santos, BAPE founder Nigo, and the slick new Casio G-SHOCK GA700 watch.

Go-karts Have Brakes

Go-karts Have Brakes

This unintentional public service announcement is brought to you by a first time rider and her shocked boyfriend. Thankfully, Redditor ciriviri says the rookie wasn’t hurt at all. Also, action cameras have come a long way.

Insane Bike Balancing

Insane Bike Balancing

Rider Fabio Wibmer rode his bike along a railing not much wider than its tires. But that’s not the impressive part – it’s that he did it along the guard rail overlooking Austria’s Kölnbreinsperre – a dam that rises about to a height of about 200 meters (~656 feet).

Stabilized Mountain Bike POV

Stabilized Mountain Bike POV

We’re so used to seeing bumpy footage of downhill mountainbiking, that this super-smooth stabilized footage seems completely foreign to us. It’s as if rider Steve Storey is blasting through the forests of Endor on his speeder bike.

Downhill Double Backflip

Downhill Double Backflip

If rider Antoine Bizet’s downhill run at the 2016 Red Bull Rampage wasn’t impressive enough, about 2/3rds of the way down, he pulled off an incredible double backflip. See what Antoine saw, without fear of breaking any bones in this amazing GoPro POV footage.

Hot Wheels Stunts

Hot Wheels Stunts

YouTuber 5MadMovieMakers once again made good use of their Hot Wheels-mounted GoPro Hero Session. This time they built ramps and paths to pull off a variety of car flips and jumps. The resulting POV footage is like Trackmania in real life.

Taping a Smartphone to a Rocket

Taping a Smartphone to a Rocket

Grant “The King of Random” Thompson shills for Lenovo’s MotoMods smartphone add-ons by strapping a Moto Z Force phone to the side of a 10-foot rocket with duct tape and a custom-molded mounting bracket, then firing it more than 16,000 feet into the air.

Dead Stick Landing

Dead Stick Landing

In 2014, pilot Mark Penell encountered a problem that would have caused lesser men to panic. His single-seat Rans S-10 airplane lost its propeller mid-flight. But Mark kept his cool, and brought the plane in for a safe landing without its primary means of propulsion.

Helicopter Blade POV

Helicopter Blade POV

We’ll say this once. If you get motion sickness, DO NOT hit play. But for the rest of us, this dizzying video shot from the perspective of the rotating blade of a Russian Mi-8 helicopter is pretty neat. Here’s another view from the chopper in flight.

Drifting with The Stig

Drifting with The Stig

(PG-13: Language) We’ve been dying to get behind the wheel of the new Ford Focus RS, what with its 350 hp, AWD, torque vectoring, and other rally-style bells and whistles. But Ford did us one better, and put us in one with Ben Collins (aka “The Stig”) at the controls.
