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 are going to get these cameras set up. One of the first things you do is change the overall frame size because that's going to dictate the frame rate. So go into the menu, you have the top button, enter it, now for this particular camera I've got it set to 1080 and when I choose my frame rate. I've got 24, 30, 48, or 60. So let's go with the maximum frames here. It's always easy to throw frames away. And then we'll go back to the menu screen, cycle through until we hit exit, and exit on out.
Now remember, with some of the higher frame rate footage, you're going to typically have to shoot at the wide angle field of view. So just get familiar with the settings and make sure you take the time to experiment, I've gone ahead and set these cameras up to different frame rates and what I want to do now is try it out so you can see some of the benefits of shooting with high frame rate.
