Olympic camerman with GoPro

Did anyone notice the GoPro clamped to the front of one of the cameras that was catching those run and gun shots of the athletes as they finished races.

Re: Olympic camerman with GoPro

Philip Howells in the UK does that with his EX-1's at weddings! Each has a Gopro clamped to it so you can shoot closeups on the "big" camera and you then also have wide shots from the GoPro and backups too!!

news cameramen doing controversial coverage when a subject might put their hand over the camera lens to stop the crew filming now have a GoPro mounted a bit higher up and angled down slightly so the guy that thinks he is not being filmed any longer actually is!!

Over here the program cameramen seem to be using them more and more!!
