When you bring together animals and GoPro cameras, you can get some really interesting shots. Kyle Naegeli aka The Fish Whisperer decided to take a dive into muddy waters of a local pond. But not literally – he strapped a GoPro onto a turtle, so it filmed the underwater world of its little home.
Will Sutton, well known for his wicked parkour skills, is quite possibly the only person capable of making selfie sticks cool.
Using a GoPro and a selfie stick, the London-based professional free runner, created this action-filled point-of-view “selfie” video while showing off what he can do.
Have a seat before watching this; Sutton’s incredible talent could make you dizzy.
Among the thousands of boring GoPro videos uploaded to the internet each day, there are a select few that still offer what made these cameras so exciting in the first place – point-of-view angles and the ability to film where no camera could go before (at least not as easily, cheaply or safely).
One of these videos, uploaded by Michael Delaney and currently making its rounds online, is that of a GoPro that gets right up close to a pile of rattlesnakes – and then falls right into the pile after a snake strikes at it.
Looking to learn more about the mysterious lives of Australia’s saltwater crocodiles, National Geographic’s Young Explorer Trevor Frost set out to capture unique footage of the world’s biggest crocodiles.
His tools: toy remote-controlled boats, foam blocks, duct tape and a handful of GoPro cameras.
His goal: get the “salties” to take a shot at the unusual prey.
The results: National Geographic worthy point-of-view footage of how the crocs bite their prey.
The huge popularity of action cameras has resulted in endless point-of-view videos, used anywhere from sharing with friends on social media to high-end commercial productions, with varying levels of awesomeness.
While many of these videos are nothing to write home about, and the POV-style video is getting a bit old, the people over at National Geographic hit the nail on the head with this one.
Featuring a great subject, location, concept and cause, this video shows what it looks like to be eaten by vultures in Tanzania’s Serengeti.
