Its easy to get loco with this cute camera because even at its small size it has lots of features to offer! Its also handy and can shoot to almost any angle you can think of. You just have to be creative because this camera has gone where every other cameras have not.
I just did a DIY LENS HOOD out of a rubber bushing which I found on my neighbor’s auto shop. The diameter is much bigger than the GoPro lens, so I cut a small portion, then glued both ends to fit well into the GoPro lens. The lens hood not only protects the lens from sudden camera drop but also produces a beautiful vignette on my photos as you can see below. But of course I can easily removed it if I wanted to.
One of the great features of GoPro that I have found out recently was the BURST MODE. Now shooting a jump shot (above photo) can be done in just one click, no more mistakes haha! My settings here is 12MP – 10/1 Wide – Remote Shutter
This shot I made (from my mobile phone) when I stopped at a crossing while filming the video below.
My very first long video using my GoPro happened last December, during our barkada’s reunion.
and my latest wacky video of myself while driving and singing “Bring that Booty” by my rap duo idols, MastaPlann
Woke up late for work that morning but still decides its the best time to test my new chesty mount for my GoPro given to me by my friend. Went for a quick cold shower, dressed up and wear the chesty together with my GoPro Hero3. I then hopped at Ozzy – my old Yamaha Mio scooter to work.
Time is not on my side that morning so I had to speed up a little haha! Its only during my video editing that I noticed I had reached 120kph
along the stretch of Marcos Highway near SM Marikina.
The video is kinda long so I made it into two parts.
BTW you can hear someone whispering “Damn it” on 10:09 and 10:44 and it gave me goosebumps awhooo!!! Check it out!!!
I really don’t intend to go away for long, it just happened that I brought again for the nth time this travelling bag (3 weeks ago Malvar, Batangas, 2 weeks ago Baguio, and this time) on our Christmas party at the Crowne Plaza Manila because I need to bring lots of stuff (my Tony Stark outfit, my lappie, and my GoPro cam and gears).
I just joked that I would love to stay for the night after the party and savor the coziness of a five-star hotel. Not knowing our organizer had billeted at the adjacent Holiday Inn for the purpose of relaxing and making it a dressing room.
Whaddyah know! They leave me the key to the room, and rest was history!
