GoPro HD Hero 5:
The GoPro HD Hero 5 mini camera shoots full HD and 4K and is ideal for getting that shot you simply couldn’t get with any other camera. The camera comes complete with a fully waterproof housing and a number of clamps and mounts. The GoPro records onto Micro SD Cards and can also record slow motion. Great for time lapse filming.
A great gadget camera to have in the kit bag, especially for corporate shoots. The Osmo offers stabilised shots and can just add a little extra to your production in a short amount of time.
Whilst there are fully submersible Polecam heads this option is great if you want a quick underwater shot just below the surface of the water. The GoPro is mounted underneath the Polecam head to achieve some great underwater footage with control of pan and tilt. The Polecam can break the surface of the water and with the addition of an extension pole can be lowered to approx 12″ below the surface.
