This is a test of a DIY jib arm design for small, light cameras like the GoPro Hero. the boom is a 12′ paint extension pole. I need to work on the trapeze so that it has less friction, but overall I can see this as a useful tool. I want to try my Samsung HZ10W next, as the GoPro is not the best video quality and the fisheye lens is so wide that you cannot avoid lens flares. Shot at 720 60p conformed to 24Fps. ungraded, edited as Prores in FCP, compressed with the Elgato Turbo H264HD.
This is a test mounting the GoPro Hero HD on a microphone boom, with some care and a better boom operator, this might be a good solution for quick and dirty crane shots. Below zero temps outdoors made this a an indoor test. This was shot at 720P 60fps conformed to 24fps. Edited in FCP with no grading.
Note for animal lovers: All the trophy mounts were inherited from my Father-in-law.. I only shoot wildlife with cameras.
