The guys at VuVantage have come up with a great new system for capturing yourself in action using your GoPro or other POV camera.
Here is the better YouTube link that I couldn’t get to work in our player:
If you are sick of helmet cam like 96% of the rest of us the VuVantage might just be the ticket to more exciting videos in the future. It uses a unique backback mount and an extended arm with ball joints to allow for a third person perspective shot from the first person without the help of another person. Wow! That was confusing to write. The VuVantage was also built with safety in mind which is also explained in the video.
Check out this long and boring, but very educational video to learn more. They are doing a Kickstarter for this product at: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/vuvantage/pov-action-camera-pack-mount-for-gopro-contour-oth?ref=email and have already nearly doubled their goal of raising $4000. If you pledge $125 or more you will get one of the first VuVantage setups produced. I have a feeling they will sell for about double that after.
