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 my preference is to go for the body mount, a head mount works pretty well, too. Alright, this particular unit is designed just to be attached sort of like a hat. And, depending on your subject, you may need to adjust it a bit.
And on the inside of the strap there's a bit of adhesive, sort of sticky, tacky material. It's not going to stick to the skin, but it does cut down on any slippage. This works pretty well, but you can actually turn that around. You mind rotating that 180 degrees? There we go, and you see now he can actually shoot backwards. So if we wanted to get action from what's happening behind the athlete, this is a pretty cool point of view, and that's one of the cool things. This just really puts you right in the point of view of your shooting subject. Also a lot of times this clip can be unattached and it has a hat clip, a pretty versatile shooting solution.
