Creative shots with gopro type cameras

I have used my sony cam on the top of my car for a few shots. I did this one shot where I was heading straight on to the church. The shot looked pretty cool..kinda like a large dolly shot. I am trying to get ideas so I can utilize it a bit more. What have you shot with your gopro type cam?

Re: Creative shots with gopro type cameras

I did the same recently - the groom and ushers etc left from a farm on the back of a tractor so i fastened it to the front of my car and followed them - a really nice shot, also I pulled up on the road a few times and the camera got them going past - worked really well.

I also sometimes put it on the end of a fully extended monopod with a light and hang it right over the dancefloor looking down - can be quite dramatic but you need a packed dancefloor for it to work. If it's not then the wide angle makes the dancers look pretty sparce!

I filmed a chef competition recently and had it on a small slik table top tripod as the chef's were prepping facing a wall, so it worked well just moving it around to get where I couldn't. I also folded the legs like a mini monopod and did some hand held shots that worked quite well, getting over the heads of the chefs and getting all the pans steaming and bubbling! - all the while hooked to a little 5" monitor.
