Handheld Monopod for GoPro

A handheld monopod is perfect for self-filming shots and will also be great for getting tracking shots of another skier at close range.
I had to add couple of extra hinge mounts to get the right angle for tracking another skier while skiing backwards myself.

I will be using this handheld monopod to film skiers at the High Tatras in Slovakia. This is one of the mounts I'll be using.

As I take this photo, I am telling myself that this thing needs a wrist strap. I am off to look for one in my gear box.

When you look at the ski shots in the GoPro ads their sequences mostly show the shots where the camera is mounted to the performer. But the shot that always stands out is magical shot where it is clear that the camera is not attached to the performer.

This handheld tool that allows filmmakers to get those magic moments.
