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.

While the gorilla pods are super cheap and easy to use, you might want something a little bit sturdier. You might recall we used a cage and a clamp to attach to a skateboard earlier? These things are great. You can go right around a pole with one of these. Or something here at the park that we want to attach to. Slide that in and then spin that to tighten it down. It's really solid. This actually has non-skid surface in here, so that's going to really hold that in place. Then you just take the knuckle here, slip that over, tighten it down.
And then you've got your cage and you just take that and attach it to the thread. Remember the cage has mount points on all four sides, giving you a lot of flexibility to deal with different situations. So there we go, I got that into place. Remember, if I loosen this, I get the ability to freely rotate that to whatever angle I want. So really here, we've got just about coverage from any angle. Alright, we'll use this more a little bit later. But this is a great way to go ahead and attach the camera to just about any hard surface where you need a super stable mount.
