We got dizzy watching this GoPro video so you don’t have to

More and more videos recorded with GoPro cameras are popping up online, some daring, some scary and some weird, as the tiny portable camera gets more and more popular. But what happens when a GoPro owner decides to stick his camera to one of the wheels of his car using nothing but duct tape and to record a short drive at 45mph or so? First of all, the resulting nearly 3-minute long video is impressive, showing yet another way the camera can be used to obtain some stunning visual effects. Secondly, you start to get dizzy, and the video seems awfully long. More →

Terrifying GoPro video shows two tornadoes wreaking havoc at the same time

We’ve seen our share of scary GoPro videos over the past several months but this latest one takes us about as close as we ever want to be to two tornadoes that simultaneously tore through large areas of Nebraska last month. The video was filmed by storm chasers Dick McGowan and Shay Phillips, who shot footage of the twin tornadoes on June 16th this year in Pilger, Nebraska using their GoPro camera while safely behind the wheel of a car.

Now that drones are basically everywhere, we can expect to see videos pop up with footage that could never have been captured by amateurs in the past. Such is the case with a series of fireworks videos that were published over the weekend as people sent GoPro-equipped drones flying directly through the fray on July 4th. More →

GoPro showed us how well defying the smartphone market can work

The biggest consumer market trend of the past decade has been how smartphones have suffocated one consumer product category after another. Portable video game consoles, music players, cameras — stand-alone devices have been left reeling by the relentless improvement of smartphone processing power, memory size and camera quality. Global camera sales shrunk by a stunning -40% in 2013. The immensely powerful Nintendo empire is reeling as its cornerstone 3DS handheld franchise has started missing sales targets. iPod sales have dived into terminal decline. More →

Amazing video shows what it’s like to fall thousands of feet to your death

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fall thousands of feet to your death but have been understandably too scared to try it yourself? Well thankfully some skydivers have decided to help us experience this particular sensation vicariously after they tossed a GoPro camera out of an airplane and actually found it still in one piece after it landed in a muddy pig pen. The person who owns the camera says that she actually thought it was gone for good until finding it eight months later on her own property. This is the second amazing GoPro-filmed video we’ve seen this year as last month we saw a similarly amazing video of a plane crash. The full video is posted below. More →

Another amazing GoPro video: What it’s like to ski the most horrifying downhill course of the Olympics

Last week we showed you the most terrifying GoPro video of all time, which had just been made available in high-definition for the first time ever. The video showed us what it’s like to free-fall to the Earth from space, filmed by a GoPro camera strapped to Felix Baumgartner as he made his famous space jump in 2012. While it’s hardly as crazy as falling from space, a newly filmed high-definition video posted over the weekend by BBC’s Graham Bell gives us a first-hand view of what it’s like to ski the Rosa Khutor men’s downhill course, which U.S. Olympic gold medalist Bode Miller recently said is so intense that it “could kill you.” More →

The best (and most terrifying) GoPro video of all time: What it’s like to fall from outer space, in HD

WARNING: The following video is as terrifying as it is amazing, and probably should not be watched by the faint of heart. With that out of the way, GoPro on Friday released what is without question the most amazing high-definition video of all time that was captured by a GoPro camera. Known for their durability and portability, GoPro cameras are often the tools of choice for capturing video in extreme conditions. Simply put, we’re not sure that there’s anything more extreme than leaping off of a space craft and free-falling from outer space. More →

Video: Terrifying plane crash captured on GoPro camera from inside cabin

It’s every air traveller’s worst nightmare, and one passenger aboard a flight off the coast of Kalaupapa, Molokai in Hawaii recently gave the world a first-hand look at what it’s like to go down in a plane crash. Thanks to the proliferation of smartphones and other portable cameras like the GoPro, we now often see firsthand accounts of events that only a lucky few — or a very unlucky few, in this case — could experience in the past. The latest example comes from Ferdinand Puentes, who pulled out his GoPro camera and began filming recently when an airplane he was aboard abruptly fell out of the sky off the coast of Hawaii.
