I picked up a few GoPro HD HERO cameras to keep around the studio. Although their primary use will deal with providing interesting camera angles a new web series I am working on called 4-Wheels/16-tracks. I am hoping to use these to get some in-the-studio videos of different recording sessions so that I can edit them with the recorded music and then post them on the internet in some form or another. I am aware that these cameras were designed to be used in extreme environments but I will probably just use them to get shots I can’t get with other cameras.
I am planning to test them out for the first time this Friday with When, Not If at Doc’s Music Hall. It will be interesting to see how these cameras perform in a low light environment.
