With my recent Purchase of the GoPro HD Hero I’ve been playing around with new filming techniques. One of the most interesting is attaching the camera to a pole and have it facing the person in control. This has been done before (see video above) so I wanted to spice it up a little. I set out to find something that would be appropriate. I found a shop on eBay that sells 2cm diameter by 1m length acrylic rod for around £10 inc delivery.
Below are a couple of shots of the finished mount. I used a old bike handle grip and the mount I made earlier in the year. If you cant be bothered to build your own mount, the gopro handlebar mountworks a treat. Over all I’m pretty happy with how it came together.
Here’s a few bits with the pole in use.
If you make one of these, I would love to see some stuff with it, just drop a link below…
