Buy a drone to put on it and then learn to fly it.

HAHA... I bought a drone and hovered it over the bed and the wife got mad...Darn new millennial footage gone bad.

Dan Harstine - Haha! THAT's the whole point of buying a gadget...buy the gadget now - worry about how you are going to use it later! Hehe!
Gabe Sanders - I like the drone idea!
Doyle Lee Austin Davison Iv - THAT'S AWESOME!

Don't let Dan Harstine give you a bad time. You are a man, you wanted, now you have it. This is part of your great hunter instinct. Now find a place to mount it all the wall and brag to all your friends about what a good deal you got.
So you bought a new toy without a defined mission. Hmm... That sounds expensive. How will you calculate your return on the investment? Remember this is a business and stuff costs real money. As real estate professionals, we spend far too many resources on the next best gadget that is going to make us millions. Actually, its the gadget makers making the millions.
once you define the mission of the gadget, then you can quantify the value to your business.
Meanwhile - the go pro is a lot of fun attached to airplanes, boats, motorcyle and snowmobile helmets. That way you can relive all of the death defying stupidity with your family and friends. REALLY.. Its lots of fun! :)
Buy some accessories..
1. Under Armor athletic wear
2. Heart monitor w/chest strap
3. Vest mount for Go Pro
4. Saucony multi-surface joggers.
5. Hit the trials and record the unexpected benefits of running.
Or, were you intending to be one of those obnoxious types? In that case do a few test runs with exterior and interior shots and the Go-Pro limitations will become crystal clear.

If you plan to shoot videos of your real estate listings, purchase a good gimbal system and pratice, practice, pratice! Bad videos do more to distract a potential buyer than no videos at all. Remember that a professional photographer has the equipment and more importantly, experience.

Great for localism posts, show off your local trails, parks, and streets.
Zhiyun crane, useful in outdoor image and video collection but cartoon like, distorted can make the angles like you are taking a LSD trip. Use in conjuction with other cameras, editing software. My first go pro was under a drone for payload. New drone has it's own camera fix positioned to angle POV.
Gabe nailed this one!
I enjoyed reading this post as I do not have a GoPro but my son does. He uses it for rowing related videos and loves it. Good luck!
Be careful or you will get a blade close shave and instead of a haircut, you will need the ER to stitch you up, these take skills to fly safely. There are a lot of buttons to maneuver and remember, get your billions people. People love reality videos.
Gosh, it is so funny. But a drone idea by Gabe is simply hilarious. And then using it to hover over yu wife in bed is the epitome. Now you can forget about real estate and why you bought the camera
Go Pro's are terrific and can be incorporated in your business, using a tripod is suggested. You can incorporate a Go Pro in your personal life, once you begin using it... you'll find out how nice it is to have on hand. If you spend time outdoors buy mounting brackets to record biking on the trails, take it on vacations, to record once in a lifetime experiences. My boys use a Go Pro to record their motocross and skateboard sessions. We've strapped it to our Boxer to see what her point of view was like when she was outside playing and swimming. Have fun with it! :)
As Harold Satterfield mentioned, by a good steadicam and practice. I tried one out at a local camera store and determine it wasn't for me, so I bought a gearbox instead.
As one that works with REO properties I sure it would be great to document problems as you do your walk through. Back at the office you can review the tape.
You could helmet mount it and do a water ski video or a motorcycle video or whatever short you do to show your peeps your fun/crazy side.
rofl @Doyle Lee! I'll bet! I bought a new webcam a couple weeks ago, started a channel on Youtube. I hate video, my nerves show, lol! But I try to have fun with it, lol! Real estate, lighter side of... https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC32HlUwddZaunYLRCwu7l6A/videos
Get a drone and produce virtual tours like this: http://liveatoutpost.com
It won't be as exciting as hanging out the door on a Huey but I bet the radio control choppers can be real fun.
Get a wireless audio system, tripod and software program to edit your videos. After you produce some videos get a HDMI cable and plug your laptop into your big screen TV and review your video with your wife and friends and get their feedback on your production. What they liked, didn't like, etc. Hope you have lots of time to get proficient with your new toy.
I have no idea. I do not use videos.
I don't have a clue but the drone ideas sound pretty good...
If you are going to record videos for business, also invest in a tripod and microphone. Nothing worse than an unprofessional video with bad sound quality.
Richard Iarossi that's a great one!
If you can attach with a drone....lol!
So did i, it just came in Friday, now i am working on mounting, there are too many choices for mounting and the directions were not clear. I am having fun with it and trying to come up with the best way for home videos
