GoPro Selfie Stick Films Crazy Stunts
Most people think of selfie sticks as a handy tool to have with them on a vacation, while being a tourist or with friends. Watch this video from The Quint.com and check out another very cool use for it – Parkour with a GoPro Selfie Stick!
For those who don’t know, Parkour is a training discipline using movement that developed from the military obstacle training (Parkour Wiki here). In other words, people that practice parkour are those crazy people that jump over railings, climb up walls, jump between roofs, and look like they are in an action movie or are real life superheroes.
Based on the shaft in the video, it looks like Parkour Guy is using a GoPro camera and a GoPro selfie stick. Kids, don’t try this at home. Click here for the video and enjoy!
Before you attempt to do something like this with your selfie stick, make sure that it is up to the task. Not all monopods are made to handle such aggressive use. If you are using a phone, make sure that it is in a strong case, such as LifeProof. You also need to make sure that your selfie stick is very durable and locks your phone in very tightly. If you are using a GoPro camera, make sure that your selfie stick is compatible with your model.
