Surprised, that is, until we saw the video above. Because if this is the kind of smile-inducing footage you can expect from a fetch mount, then sign us right up!

Game Changing Algorithm Turns First Person Videos Into Incredibly Smooth Hyperlapses

Researchers at Microsoft just changed the POV video game — there’s no doubt about that. Using a newly developed algorithm, they transform long, boring first person videos shot with helmet cams into super smooth hyperlapses that look like they were shot with a steadicam. Read more…

Video: Fly Over Manhattan at 118mph with the Red Bull Air Force Wingsuit Flyers

Some experiences just aren’t going to happen twice, and (legally) flying over Manhattan with four of your friends in a wingsuit is one of them.

Thankfully, it was a Red Bull team that did this, and just like they did with Felix Baumgartner and his epic skydive from the edge of space, Red Bull made sure to pack some GoPros on the jumpers so that we could experience what it was like as well. Read more…

Collar Camera Video Captures a Cat Fight from the Cat’s Perspective

Editor’s Note: Turn your volume way down before you click play. The video gets very loud very soon after it starts and we wouldn’t want your boss knowing your watching cat videos at work… you’re welcome.


There are a lot of POV videos out there of humans doing incredible stunts or getting into all sorts of scary trouble, but we don’t really have much similar footage from the animal kingdom. Maybe it’s because GoPro hasn’t announced their Cat Fancy mount (yet?).

Fortunately, for those who do want to see what trouble their feline friends get into, there’s something called a collar camera. And the video above was captured on just such a device. It’s a very literal cat fight captured from the cat’s point of view. Read more…

But here comes the pro tip: when you do get caught, telling them you were taking ‘panoramic photos’ won’t get you out of trouble if they saw the backflips. Read more…

Incredible POV Footage of BASE Jumpers Launching Off the One World Trade Center

Getting to the top of the One World Trade Center is supposed to be impossible, or at the very least difficult, but it seems that’s not so. In a video released yesterday but shot back in September of 2013, three BASE jumpers show that they not only got up to the top… they managed to jump off with parachutes and get off scot-free until months later.

Terrifying GoPro Footage Captures Syrian Tanks Wreaking Destruction

Editor’s Note: Although there is no direct footage of men dying, fighters on both sides lose their lives during this footage. It is not for the faint of heart.


Iconic conflict photographers are thought of as such because they do something that your standard news coverage just can’t do: they show the realities of war. Statistics enumerating the number of people killed or displaced by conflict are just numbers on a page until someone captures the reality of these numbers on film… or sensor.

The video above was not shot by a conflict photographer, but it too captures that reality of war in a profound and shocking way. For an hour, you can spend time looking through the eyes of a Syrian tank column as it wreaks unimaginable havoc. Read more…
