With GoPro going public in May there is huge demand for video cameras. GoPro has become the go to camera maker for sports photography and video. Even though the video quality isn't as amazing as some other cameras, the GoPro is darn useful with it being so small, having reasonable battery life and tough enough to go up against most weather conditions.
Drones have also become very popular recently and by strapping a GoPro to a drone, you have your own makeshift aerial photography setup without having to pay absurd amounts to hire a helicopter. It makes it much easier for the general hobbyist to shoot some amazing videos, as you see from the video below.
Banzai Pipeline in Oahu, Hawaii is one of the best surf locations in the world with absolutely massive waves that can be deadly. Thousands descend to take on the scariest waves, Eric Sterman is one of those people. At the end of 2013 he went to Hawaii to shoot some incredible footage using a GoPro strapped to a drone, the footage speaks for itself.
