    Go Pro Camera and Disneyland

    Im thinking about getting a Go Pro Camera for my upcoming Disneyland trip. Who out there has one or has used one? Can they be mounted on the rides? Any and all information about the Go Pro would be appreciated. Thanks

    I have one it's ok. It's pretty much a small cheap video camera, and poor still camera, but you can mount it in all sort of ways and hold it of course.

    It takes some time to mount so you won't be able to mount it to rides when loading, but you can mount it on your head. There are accessories you buy for different mountings.

    Re: Go Pro Camera and Disneyland

    I use a GoPro for motocross, and I have always thought about bringing it to Disneyland from seeing people bring it on the rides. The new GoPro Hero 3 comes out November 14th and it's 2x better then the Hero 2 if you're willing to wait and pay an extra $200. A common mount for the camera at Disneyland is the chest mount, which you can find here: http://gopro.com/camera-mounts/chest-mount-harness/

    As far as mounting it on rides, that would be tricky. You could get the suction cup mount and slap it on the side of the Pirates boat, or whatever ride you're on. And the suction mount can be found here: http://gopro.com/camera-mounts/suction-cup-mount/

    The GoPro is a very fun camera to have, and bringing it to Disneyland to catch all point of views would be awesome, have fun!

    Re: Go Pro Camera and Disneyland

    My husband had fun with ours when we were there in Sept. He wore it on his head in most of the rides & was able to put together a cute video for his Facebook page. He had originally bought the GoPro for hanggliding, but it's amazing the uses and fun we've had with it.

    It doesn't take very good footage inside the very dark parts of dark rides or inside SM or Matterhorn, but there were useable short bits of footage for just about all rides.


    No CMs told us we couldn't film in the rides, but they did ask us if we had turned off the display screen on the back so as not to spoil the ride for others. We always checked to be sure it was off.

    My DH put ours in the waterproof case for Ca Screamin'. It almost eliminated that 'whooshing' noise but you can still hear the music, his laughing, & my screaming! LOL.

    Re: Go Pro Camera and Disneyland

    My son and his friends use them for snowboarding, and I was actually pretty impressed with the video quality, at least watching it on the laptop. Haven't watched it on the big screen yet. But great idea!

    shot this with a gopro on my wrist.

    You cannot zoom
    it's terrible in the dark
    it's for sports and action and phenomenal for that.
    I wouldn't recommend it, honestly.

    Re: Go Pro Camera and Disneyland

    I don't have a GoPro, but I do have a GorillaPod that I use with my digital camera (there's also an adapter to use it with an iPhone).

    It's pretty easy to attach it to the handlebars of rides and I haven't had any issues.

    This is the one I have. The Original Flexible Camera Tripod by JOBY: Now in 4 new hues!

    I love flexible tripods, they're very useful in the parks. Attaching them to rails and posts at night helps a lot with exposure.
