"Alive" - amazing Canadian wilderness time lapse

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Thursday, January 25, 2018,

I simply had to post this story from

German filmmaker Florian Nick spent six weeks in Canada filming this epic time lapse. It took nine months to edit. Why? Because it is actually composed of 54 000 INDIVIDUAL still images! Interestingly he used a Sony A7SII and Rokinon optics, similar to the kit I just purchased for this year's 4K projects.

Remarkable work. Read the full story here

GoPro awesomeness with French jetmen

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Monday, November 28, 2016,

What a better way to play out the year than with some gorgeous GoPro aerial footage. Boba Fett impersonators Yves Rossy, Vincent Reffet and Fred Fugen flew their jetpacks in formation with eight Alpha jets of the French Air Force aerobatic display team, the Patrouille de France (Yes I just added that to have fancy French words in this post).

Seriously though, this must require some serious skill and physical effort.

The 4K clarity is gorgeous and I find this both exhilarating and depressing ...

I have hope for mankind!

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Tuesday, July 26, 2016,

It has been a fantastic month for GoPro jet videos. I have discovered yet another movie acceptable soundtrack! 

Yes folks, no Techno. No Dubstep. No shitty titling. Not even a hint of cliched
 Hard Rock. Just awesome visuals with a few well-placed GoPro shots. This seems to have been produced by USAF media people so that might explain it. But seriously though, I liked this and it was well put together. Military jets (and most fast machines) and action cameras go well together.

Video as...

From YouTube: things that go bang

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Monday, February 29, 2016,
Ok so it's no secret that I like GoPros and all things military - I have clients in the defense industry, so that's my excuse...

So what better then than a combination of the two. Yes folks, GoPro jets are back!

As always, kill the sound and watch the visuals, because apparently jet jocks have terrible taste in production music. This time it is footage of an aircraft that is currently at the center of a bit of controversy due to it's looming retirement. The A-10 Thunderbolt II has the insanely...

YouTube Closed Captioning

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Wednesday, January 27, 2016,

I was on YouTube just now when I clicked the Closed Captioning button by accident. And I'm quite impressed by the results on this specific clip. YouTube CC has probably been around for a while and like most automatic translation it does misinterpret a word or two, but the majority is dead on. Pretty impressive.

Weird and wonderful add-ons for GoPro

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Friday, September 12, 2014,

I should probably just call this
The GoPro Blog and get it over with...

The world's most popular action camera brand has spawned a huge industry of aftermarket accessories an a few interesting ones have caught my eye the past few weeks. Some make sense and some are just plain weird. has posted a couple of good ones recently.

Above: Brunton All-day Battery. This is cool and I want one. One of the main complaints from GoPro owners is usually that the battery life sucks, even ...

Microsoft unveils Hyperlapse for your action camera footage

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Monday, August 11, 2014,

One of the first things I did after I got my first GoPro was to fit it to my motorcycle helmet and ride to the next town and back. When I dropped the footage into my editing application and tried to cut a 2 minute time lapse version, I discovered what the video world already knew - shaky footage shot with an action camera on a body mount does not make good time lapse footage.

It seems that the folks at Microsoft Research has now sorted this out for us with Hyperlapse. If you follow the process...

More GoPro fast jet awesomeness

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Sunday, June 29, 2014,


Dutch Air Force pilots certainly love their GoPros. The image above was taken by Dutch F-16 and Apache demonstration crews during recent airshow practice sessions in the Netherlands.

Above: A Dutch F-16 pilot's selfie with a Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

Above: Another Dutch F-16 driver made himself the envy of fighter jocks everywhere a while ago by snapping a selfie just as he launched a Sidewinder missle from his wing.

Dank je, boys! Keep em' coming.

The collection grows again... more GoPro jets

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Monday, May 5, 2014,

My collection grows yet again. I picked up this link while waiting for a render. Because that's what post-production people do between renders: burn some internet. Or go outside to smoke. Or eat and make phone calls.

I love GoPro cockpit footage. Consume and enjoy as always: mute the shitty music, ignore the cheesy titles and enjoy visuals that most people outside the military will never see. This one features F-15 jets from the USAF's 67th Fighter Squadron.

Burj Khalifa BASE jump

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Wednesday, April 23, 2014,

I simply had to post this. Because, seriously, apart from the fact that these gentlemen have stones the size of Jupiter, the GoPro footage shot by their wingsuit cameraman is simply astonishing! Keep in mind that the guy was in a terminal velocity freefall, upside down, trying not to hit them or the building all at the same time.

Vince Reffet and Fred Fugen jumped into the Guinness Book of World Records with this BASE jump from the tip of Dubai's Burj Khalifa, currently the tallest building in...

Bear discovers GoPro. Seriously.

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Tuesday, March 25, 2014,

GoPro is every marketer's dream. Thousands of users are using them every day to record some pretty remarkable stuff and the footage is online ready and ripe for the company's picking. Like this remarkable clip shot by Brad Josephs in Alaska.

It is unclear whether the camera survived after being discovered by the Grizzly at around 0:53...
