What’s this? This is the most direct camera mount you can get.

DIY GoPro Mount to 3D Print #5: Stabimg

What’s this? No doubt, the most stunning perspective is the bird’s eye view, a high-angle shot. You see shots taken from helicopters (maybe even drones) on TV all the time. Now you can produce similar shots yourself by hanging up a slightly sloping wire or sturdy rope and attaching your camera to it. But how? Simple, the Stabimg (stabilizer image) is a device that holds your camera and slowly slides down the rope while capturing your awesome snow stunts or other equally exciting stunts. After assembling the device, the Stabimg is ready to go.

DIY GoPro Mount to 3D Print #10: Ground Spike gopro ground mount

What’s this? Sometimes the simplest way is the best way. You should check out the GoPro Ground Spike if you want to take shots from just one particular perspective, for instance, shots of ski jumpers coming down the run at high speed, leaning forward as they jump and soar through the sky as if in slow motion until landing. Since we’re talking about ski jumping, here’s another interesting angle: Jumps seem much higher if shot from below. Just mount the camera onto the ground spike, and stick the spike into the snow.
