->> Anybody ever hook one of these up on your monopod, and let it record video as you were shooting...more so for a football/soccer game. I was going to try it as an experiment for fun to see what some of the video would look like. Just wonder if any of high school sideline shooters have ever given it a try? Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately it doesn't look like the video is online anymore.

->> I've used an unattended GoPro to record the starts of running races http://action.lung.org/site/TR?fr_id=8530&pg=entry

At secondary finish lines (half marathon relay teams) I have put up one GoPro shooting video, and another next to it shooting stills at one-second intervals using its built-in intervalometer. The GoPro has a very blue color cast and is extremely wide angle. Any up or down pitch is noticeable at the edges.

->> I used to do this a lot 2-3 years ago...and sworn I had written about it on my blog, but hadn't. So...

(shameless plug alert)

Here I write about it:

I would Super-Clamp a small ballhead to my monopod holding a Casio FH-20 (later a Panasonic FZ200) which I could align more or less accurately with my Sigma 120-300.

->> Does anyone have any advice for (a) Mounting the gopro without the waterproof housing in order to (b) Connect the gopro to a USB cable and charge while recording?

I'm thinking specifically of doing this in a car.

->> Paul,

GoPro makes a frame that may be useful for what you are trying to do. Judging by the photos, you should be able to plug in a USB cable when it's on the camera.

Here's the link:
