The GoPro digital video camera is all the rage with adventurers for its compact size, toughness and image quality. They attach it to their motorbikes, skis and skateboards to record stunning wide angle video of their sport. The camera is tiny but it records high definition video in a 170˚ angle of view.
Sky diver Lucas Damm was jumping out of a plane at 12000 feet when his GoPro came off his helmet. The camera spiralled to the ground, filming all the time. When it landed, the tough little camera just went on recording – including sound – as if nothing unusual had happened!
Play the video but hold the pause button from time to time to see amazing distorted landscapes.
