LOST! : on Vieux Boucau Beach, France, on 2013-08-02

On Sept 10th, we received this message from Simon S.:

“Hi! I lost my GoPro Hero2 Camera on the shore of beach Vieux Boucau (France) in city Vieux Boucau during a surflesson. I hab it mounted on the Headstrap (unfortunately without a floaty backdoor). I turned towards the beach an a big wave wiped it off my head. Since it was low tide and I had the water up to my chest and the ocean was very wild, I hab no chance to catch it. The memory card contains some videos of a busride, myself and my girlfriend, the surfclass warmup and my first attempts to stand up on the surfboard. The board was a pink softboard. I was wearing a black wetsuit. If found, please contact me. Thank you in advance for your help! Simon”

How to travel safely with your GoPro Camera?

As many people are asking themselves “How will I carry my camera around, with my most used accessories?”, I am explaining here my method.

.

I purchased:

– a plastic box with a handle on the side

– some precut foam

I put my GoPro Camera and accessories on top of the foam and started to extrude the shape of my GoPro Camera and accessories.

Finally I inserted my cameras and accessories in the cuts, and voila!

.

Some pics to illustrate the result:

.

Here is the list of what I put inside:

A GoPro Camera (up to three could be carried in my box: 1 in the foam, two in the two HD housing.

One waterproof HD housing and one open version both with their backpack battery backdoor

One open and one waterproof standard back doors

A backpack battery

A suction mount

A handlebar and seat-post mount

Many GoPro extenders

Lot of GoPro screws (with a small “tipp-ex” white dot on the longest, the ones for the case, in order to identify them easily)

A USB cable to recharge the GoPro Camera battery

My rotating time-lapse egg-timer (IKEA) with a female tripod adapter at the bottom (for a tripod…) and another one at the top (for the GoPro tripod adapter)

Finally I placed a GoPro sticker on the case in order to identify it quickly and my details (name, email, phone) under the foam sheet that is located on the cover of the box.

What can’t be put in the box: a pole (1.5m long, aluminum), my Manfrotto big and small tripods, the Gorilla tripod.

I hope that this post helped you…

A GoPro Camera on top of a DSLR?

I was requested to shoot weddings pictures by friends for their wedding…

I had the idea to endorse two jobs: a cameraman and a photographer.

So I put my GoPro Camera on top of my Canon EOS 5D DSLR using a GoPro Tripod adapter, and a Flash holder adapter.

Here’s the result:

Material used:

GoPro Camera

GoPro Tripod mount + small extender

Canon EOS 5D + 25-105 2.8L
