GoPro’s Mounting Options

Stephen Yagirlowicz

In the battle to stand apart from the competition, adult content producers are seeking innovative and unique ways of creating their wares; with a growing emphasis on bringing the viewer into the action.

One popular method of accomplishing this is through using of a point-of-view (POV) perspective. While adult POV content is often described as video in which “the performer acknowledges the camera,” or which “was shot on a low budget,” these are not the actual meanings of POV — which simply designates a camera shot made from the perspective of a participant; or in other words, the video shows the action as the performer sees it — not a voyeur’s view of the action, such as had when watching a movie.

It’s the flexibility of its mounting options that sets the HD Hero apart.

It can be hard to have sex while holding a camera, however, so much “POV” footage has been shot “over the shoulder,” either by a cameraman or on a tripod-mounted system; since body-mounted cameras typically suffered from low-quality images — until now.

Enter the GoPro (www.gopro.com), an inexpensive yet high-quality, wearable HD video and still photography system featuring a mind-boggling array of mounting options.

According to its creators, the GoPro HD Hero is “shockproof, bombproof [and] waterproof to 180’.” Offering 1080p, 960p and 720p video at 30 and 60 fps, the HD Hero line of cameras also shoot handsfree, 5 megapixel photos automatically at intervals from two to 60 seconds, as well as single shot, triple shot and self-timer modes.

Audio quality is reported to be excellent, with the company having “invested more in the HD Hero camera’s sound system than most companies spend on their entire camera development.”

The included 1100mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides more than two hours of continuous recording time using the camera’s SD memory card and features an integrated battery heating system for extended use in cold climates.

It’s the flexibility of its mounting options that sets the HD Hero apart, however, with mounts for helmets, chest straps, suction cups, tripods, handlebars, etc., etc., available — as does its sub-$300 price point, which makes it all affordable.

Check out the GoPro GD Hero: strap it to your chest or head and take POV shooting to a whole new level while letting your creativity soar.
