The Go Pro camera and the Sentinel: Video #1
Recently, we got a rare new piece of gear, but with all the things we’re trying to get done, we haven’t put it to a lot of use.
The gear: A GoPro camera with a variety of straps and snap-on devices that will allow it to go far and wide. We sent it snowboarding in Tahoe on its first trip, which was a learning experience. We’re still trying to get some of the adhesive off of sports editor Julie Jag’s snowboard.
We don’t have a lot of video to show for that trip. Cops reporter and surfer Stephen Baxter has been our next volunteer, and along with his friend Emlyn Stokes captured about 45 seconds of usable footage from their surf trip on New Year’s Day, 2012.
We’re going to keep taking the camera out, until we break it, sink it, lose it, or actually get some cool shots. Here’s our first effort. We’re learning, and we’ll keep adding to this playlist on YouTube. Want to take this camera to a skate park, zip line trip, around the world, or on a motorcycle ride or parachute jump? Let us know. We’re up for it, if you are willing to sign the right waivers.
