The GoPro HERO was practically built for sports, and not just the extreme kind. It's compact, durable, and produces high-quality footage at a high-frame rate—just the kind of camera you want for shooting fast-moving athletes outdoors. Rich Harrington drops in at the local skate park and shows how to shoot grinds, kickflips, and ollies from multiple angles, including a head mount and an under-the-board point of view. He also shows how to plan for other equipment you'll need, like Steadicam rigs for extra stabilization or clamps and poles to capture interesting angles. Plus, learn how to film interviews on location without having to switch cameras, and set your GoPro to capture overcranked footage. Best of all? The techniques shown only require one camera, so if you have a GoPro, you're good to go.

We already talked to you about one limitation, and that is the actual frame rate available. Remember, as you change frame sizes, the rates available are going to vary. So these two are going to have to go hand in hand. If I want to get the highest frame rate, 120 frames per second, I'll have to drop down to a 720p frame size. But that's okay. Remember, most of you are going to be editing at 720 or 1080, so it's not a big deal to blow 720 up a little bit. What are some of the other limitations? Well, you need fast cards. Remember the GoPros take the micro sd type card, and you may have to buy a higher quality card than you've been shooting with.
The higher frame rates need the really fast memory cards in order to transfer the frames and not drop any. And when you're shooting that high frame rate footage, you're going to chew through batteries a bit quicker. So make sure you've got plenty of power to pull this off.
