Base jumper Subterminallyill posted on his Vimeo page a very impressive, immersive (seemingly a helmet mounted GoPro) slow motion footage of his last jump off a cliff, which as it happens didn’t go well at all. As the seconds slowly pass by, the moment almost feels like a soft, skimming interaction. But as soon as the actual speed is revealed, it shows a brutal, violent accident happening in a split second.
GoPro, the company that makes those tiny camera you can usually spot on extreme sports footages, has just announced its last one: the GoPro HERO3. The quality seems to be jaw dropping, and yet this is a very affordable little toy (about $200 to $400 depending on the version). I don’t mean to make promotional writing here; maybe I’m just becoming a fanboy of theirs.
You have to admit they know how to cut some extreme sports sequences. This is the promotional video for the GoPro camera, shown on their front page. Checking their Youtube page, they also have some 3D video in case you have a way to watch it.
