• Tour The World’s Largest Cave In This Amazing Drone Video

    Located in Vietnam’s Phong Nha-Kẻ Bàng National Park, Hang Son Doong has been recognized as the world’s largest cave since 2009. The cave was originally uncovered in 1991, but it wasn’t until a 2009 expedition that it was found to be over 3.1 miles long, 660 feet high, and 490 feet wide, garnering its “world’s largest” designation. Beginning in 2013, guided tours allowed tourists in the cave for the first time, but at a cost of $3000, many of us will never experience the site in person. Photographer Ryan Deboodt has come to our rescue by capturing the the cave in this incredible HD video. He used a Canon 6D and 16-35mm lens on the ground and sent a DJI Phantom 2 and GoPro HERO4 Black high above to capture breathtaking aerial footage. Two dolines, which act as skylights, offered the GoPro the unique vista. Ryan’s cave explorations don’t end with Hang Son Doong. You can check out more of his adventures at Ryan Deboodt Photography.

  • GoPro Takes you Pole Vaulting With Allison Stokke [Video]

    Allison Stokke has been the face of pole vaulting as far as the Internet is concerned since photos of her at a meet went viral years ago. Now she has teamed with GoPro to give us a look at the sport from a point-of-view most of us have never experienced. Numerous cameras, including one on the pole, show us that there’s more to the sport than beautiful girls warming up in skintight outfits.

  • GoPro + The NHL’s Best Players = A Jaw Dropping Skills Showcase

    The National Hockey League and the NHL Players’ Association announced a North American partnership with GoPro, which mean’s we’ll most likely be getting real-time NHL game action with GoPro footage soon enough. In the meantime, the NHL called upon some of it’s most talented players to knock around and show off their skills. The speed at which these players can handle the puck is nothing short of mind boggling. P.K. Subban, the Montreal Canadian’s premiere defenseman, weighs in at 220lbs, but looks as though he’s skating in fast forward in this footage. Other notable stars include shots from the perspectives of Patrice Bergeron, Sidney Crosby, Taylor Hall, Patrick Kane, Henrik Lundqvist, TJ Oshie, Alex Ovechkin, Zach Parise, Tuukka Rask, Tyler Seguin, and Jonathan Toews. We have a feeling the NHL All-Star game will be chalk full of these shots.

  • Drone Footage Of Frozen Chicago In Magnificent 4K [Video]

    Soaring Badger Productions created this incredible video showcasing a bird’s-eye-view of Chicago in the dead of winter. All footage was captured in temperatures below 10 degrees Fahrenheit using a DJI Phantom 2 quadcopter and GoPro Hero 4 camera. Filming took place over two weeks and was made difficult by the GoPro’s battery quickly draining in the extreme conditions. Be sure to pump up the playback quality to 4K and fullscreen view for the full effect.

  • Incredible Drone Footage Of Iceland [Video]

    The quality in this video is so good, it must have been made with professional equipment, for an absurd amount out of reach of any hobbyist, right? Nah. It was all done with a DJI Phantom 2 and GoPro Hero4 Silver. The video was shot in 30fps then slowed to 24fps in post to give it an ethereal quality. Also, the original 2.7k resolution was downsampled to 1080p, resulting in supersharp video. And as a testament to the incredible quality of the GoPro, all the settings were left on auto. For a detailed description of the project, be sure to check out the story at Fstoppers.

  • Amazing GoPro Video From The Royal Danish Air Force

    GoPro cameras aren’t just for extreme sport enthusiasts. The compact yet high quality cameras are now finding themselves installed all over, including Royal Danish Air Force F-16 cockpits. Check out this footage of low level tests over Greenland. The footage was originally intended for internal RDAF research, but the higher-ups were nice enough to let Major John “STI” Kristensen, Detachement Commander and Lead Pilot on the Greenland F16 Test, to compile this video and share it on social media. The video is a journey from the ice rim east of Kangerlussuaq, to the DYE-2 radar station, over the Ilulissat icefjord, over the HDMS Knud Rasmussen patrol ship, and over the town of Ilussisat where the polar explorer Knud Rasmussen was born.

  • Finally! Someone Has Combined Skydiving And Slip ‘N Slide [Video]

    There’s nothing that can’t be improved with a Slip ‘N Slide during the hot summer months.Everyone knows this, even skydivers. With that in mind, skydivers Niklas Daniel and Brianne Thompson decided to end their 5,000ft jump over Arizona with a 200 foot Slip ‘N Slide. And lucky for us, it was all captured on Niklas’s GoPro camera. In hindsight, they should have made the slide a bit longer since they dove into it at an incredible 50 mph, but it’s impressive nonetheless.

  • Superman With A GoPro Is Better Than Man Of Steel [Video]

    Warner Bros. could have saved a lot of time and money if they had just gone with this simple, fun approach to Superman. Using a DJI Phantom quadcopter, GoPro camera, and little bit of vfx knowledge, this LA team was able to make a better Superman production than Hollywood. I can just imagine in the near future a sky filled with quadcopters trying to capture shots for amateur filmmakers. You want to make millions? Be the person who comes up with a system that will keep the drones from crashing into each other. But until that day of utter quadcopter calamity comes, enjoy the work these guys did and watch the “behind the scenes” to see how it all came together.

  • Drone Gets Up Close And Personal With Volcano [Video]

    We live in incredible times. Not too long ago, getting footage like this, especially for cheap, seemed like an impossible dream. But now, for about $1000, you can fly your very own camera-equipped quadcopter, like the DJI Phantom in this video, into the most amazing locations to get shots you never thought possible. How did it get so close without melting? DJI should use this as a promotional film for how badass their quadcopter is.

    YouTube user Claytonias F spent months travelling across the United States with a DJI Phantom quadcopter with a GoPro camera mounted to it. The collected footage was paired with Big Black Delta’s “Love You This Summer” to create this incredible video. The pairing of small, resilient, high quality cameras with versatile quadcopters has ushered in a revolution in videography by allowing aerial shots that would have been all but impossible for any production without a significant budget just a few years ago. And this revolution is one we can definitely get behind.

Also, check out Kevin Richardson’s website to see all the great work he does and watch some more videos, including one of him swimming with a lion.

And for those of you who prefer reading over watching the video, check out the transcript on CBS News.

  • Insane GoPro Video Of Backflip At Red Bull Rampage

    Last week we shared the highlights from Red Bull Rampage 2013 and it was an amazing video in its own right, but now you can watch the action from New Zealander Kelly McGarry’s point of view when he did a backflip over a 72-foot canyon, all thanks to his helmet-mounted GoPro camera. YouTube user Ankit Mn sums up our thoughts perfectly when he states “I hope the bicycle seat was big enough for the size of his balls.” We all do, Ankit Mn, we all do.

  • Paddle Boarder Has Close Encounter with Great White (Video)

    Matt Durand of Swellmagnent.com was paddle boarding fairly close to the shore of Manhattan Beach, El Porto in search of a great white shark armed with only his GoPro and a paddle. He found what he was in search of and had a very close encounter with the beast. Now after watching the video you might think to yourself “Man, that shark isn’t big at all.” You should then slap yourself in the nuts, come back to earth and think to yourself that it’s a f*cking shark and you’re on a piece of foam surrounded by water and you’re not LL Cool J.

  • Fire Breathing Captured In Slow Motion With 24 GoPro Cameras [Video]

    At this point, you know any GoPro video is going to be amazing and this one is no exception. They really take filming to the extreme this time, though, by rigging 24 cameras together to capture a fire breather from every angle. You can even catch a glimpse of the camera array at the 20 second mark. The result is an effect straight out of The Matrix for a fraction of the cost.

  • GoPro Releases the Most Adorably Heroic Video to Hit the Internet. Ever.

    GoPro released a new commercial spot for Hero3 that has taken the internet by storm. Actually by storm would be an understatement, the video has 13.5 million views in only five days on YouTube. Cory Kalanick, a firefighter out of Fresno, California was linked up to a GoPro helmet cam during a mission and on a post-fire walk through managed to find an unconscious kitten. Kalanick managed to nurse the kitten back to consciousness with some water and an oxygen tank. No word on if the kitten ultimately survived, but Kalanick will never have trouble getting a girlfriend for the rest of his life, because if being a firefighter isn’t enough to get you a girl, being a firefighter and rescuing a kitten back to health should be. and if that’s not enough, how about the most popular HD Camera brand in the world makes a commercial from the video of you fighting a fire, while rescuing a kitten. Eat your heart out Gosling, Cory Kalanick just raised the bar.

  • GoPro Video Uses “Matrix” Style Stop Time Wrap Effect

    Amateur filmmaker, Marc Donahue of Permagrin Films, showed off his half-circle grouping used 15 GoPros to use a rotating effect stopping time in mid air. Th effect produces a similar Matrix type rendering, only there is no CGI here. This isn’t revolutionary in the sense of film style, but completely new with a GoPro style camera. The video uses 15 cameras provided by GOPro for the video, he told blog FStoppers. Donahue added that he’s planning to release a music video using the same technique, soon.

The foam and carbon fiber constructed flying device can be picked up directly from the Lehmann website. See it in action below. Hat tip: HiConsumption

  • Roll Pro III Carrying case

    If you own a GoPro, you understand how difficult it is to organize the intricate accessories that come along with it for travel trips. I, personally, bought a soft lunchbox and toss everything in there for big trips, a short term solution that leaves me rummaging for parts and ultimately losing pieces. Conventional camera bags have voids of space for large equipment and are designed to protect delicate units. Since GoPro has defied both size and fragility, a new means of organizing and carrying is also in order. With the RollPro III, Riseful has set out to create an organizer that compliments GoPro’s characteristics by designing it exclusively for the GoPro and its accessories. The result is a fat free case that tames the GoPro and its entourage of pieces in a functional and beautiful fashion. Roll Pro III $79.00  

  • Meet The World’s Newest Billionaire, A 36-Year-Old ‘Surfer Dude’ Named Nicholas Woodman

    Nick Woodman is the 36-year-old founder and CEO of GoPro, a wearable camera produced by Woodman Labs that can capture footage for athletes as they whiz down a mountain or surf 6-foot waves. Last week, Foxconn purchased 8.88% of Woodman’s camera company for $200 million. Forbes learned that Woodman is the majority owner. Even if he owns minimum of 51% of the company, that means Woodman is now a billionaire, worth at least $1.15 billion. Inc interviewed the GoPro founder over the summer. Reporter Tom Foster paints a picture of a “total bro” who throws around the word “dude” frequently. He’s a thrill seeker and also the survivor of a failed dotcom startup. Here’shis story >>

  • Crazy Finnish Stunt Man Clearly Has A Death Wish

    He thought it would be a brilliant move to ride dirt-bike off a cliff into a river. 9 times out of 10 the parachute doesn’t open in time and the outcome of this video is much different. None the less he pulled it off and for that his video will have 1,000,000 views by this time tomorrow. Too bad they didn’t splice in a first person GoPro perspective, that would be the only that that could make this better.
