GoPro Ground Spike
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. Sculpteo offers this Ground Spike that allows you to take amazing shots.
Dual Tripod Attachment
What’s better than a single perspective? That’s right: two! This adapter allows you to attach two GoPro cameras to any tripod and take shots with both cameras.

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 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 Stabming is ready to go. Click here for parts.
