The Video was filmed with the GoPro HD HERO (see Link for more details).
Most of the shots where made with a telescope-rod where the GoPro HD HERO was mounted. The GoPro HD Camcorder is then about 1 Meter away from the actor. While take-off the telescope-rod is mounted on the paragliding harness with two carabines and is unfasten during the flight. Then it can be filmed with one hand and the telescope-rod is of course mounted with a rope on the harness.
To assemble the GoPro HD on the rod, you need the GoPro-Adapter for Bicycle (see Link for more Details).
On the following Picture you can see the dimensions of the telescope-rod including the flex-handle-adapter (you can get this at nearly every do-it-yourself store for about 15.-$):
With the following dimensions (and the 100°-angle) the telescope-rod is not visible in the HD720p Mode. Here some shots, which were filmed with the telescope-rod:
2.) GoPro HD – Helmet:
You can mount the GoPro HD HERO also on your helmet like you can see in the picture on the right side.
If you don´t want to get blured shots – then you should hold your head still for a few seconds.
Here some shots which where filmed with the GoPro HD mounted on the helmet:
3.) Telescope-rod with cross-member
And now a few words to the shots where i am filmed from ahead and where i have both hands on the controls (respectively behind my head :-))
The Telescope-rod is clamped between the legs. And for the reason of preventing the rod to twist, a small cross-member is mounted on the end of the rod – and during the flight you sit with your legs on the cross-member. Hopefully you can see it in the following picture:
A last word to the music:
The music is from http://www.istockphoto.com/audio and of course i bought the music – so that i will not get into a license conflict.
