A lost GoPro's unfortunate view for eight months
GoPro has done it before—survived a plane jump, that is. Now the gamechanging extreme-sports-cam can claim another feat of strength: Following a similar freefall, a GoPro has successfully endured months lost in the muck of a pig pen and the occasional curious chewing and gnawing from its porcine occupant—probably the last place the GoPro tossers expected it to end up. Mia Munselle of Cloverdale, California, found the camera on her property eight months after its crash landing. Take a look at the footage (and be glad it's from a GoPro and not one of these):
We've seen our fair share of GoPro footage in the past, from Humans Are Awesome tribute videos and duck hunting from a dog's perspective to intimate surfing shots and footage of the a trip to the top of Freedom Tower. But for every epic, never-before-documented POV clip, there are countless GoPro falls. Take a look at these trips the tiny camera caught on tape:
Obviously, the person attached to the camera got tossed around more than the camera itself, but it's still quite the tumble to catch on tape.
The car in the photo is allegedly driving at speeds of 150 mph+, according to the video description. While there's no way I can vouch for that, I can say it's going pretty fast by the looks of the yellow road lines before the camera meets pavement.
Lost At Sea
Going by the owner's account, this camera was lodged in the ocean's floor for 2.5 months until a spear fisher found it stuck in some coral. This miniature camera is a force to be reckoned with.
