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.

There's lots of manufacturers for these but this is often called the grenade grip. It's really easy to use. You're going to put the GoPro either in the hard plastic case or a frame, doesn't matter. I've got the LCD backpack on here to make it a little bit easier to frame my shots.
Make sure you seal that up really well so it's nice and clean. And then, you just slip it into the holder. Now, keep your hands on that so it doesn't drop, and take one of the standard threads, just go into it, and tighten it down, and you've got it. What's cool here is you can angle this. So if you want to hold this out nice an straight you can but a lot of times, I find it more comfortable to sort of hold it like a fishing pole a bit here. Where it's just wrapped in and I've got it. Now I highly recommend you keep the strap on there, because if you're going to be running around with the camera, you might trip, you might need to quickly let go to get your hands free.
And that's what's nice, you can use this. Or even go as far as, if you want to point back at yourself. For point of view shots. This is one of the safest ones for things like skateboarding because it's really tight here into your body, and then when you need your hands free you can just drop it and you've got your hands back for balance. Let's go ahead and put this in the hands of one of riders and have them get some shots.
