GoPro cameras are an increasingly common accessory among airsoft players. However, the camera itself is not everything. To make a good film from a game you need exciting gameplay, an idea for the production and the accessories that make all this possible.
GoPro's cameras are extremely popular with extreme sports enthusiasts or players of team games such as airsoft. High quality videos, ease of use and unprecedented durability against external factors such as water and shock have made GoPro synonymous with sports cameras. That does not change the fact that it is precision photographic equipment, and such equipment is best carried in a dedicated case. This will allow you to organize all the accessories you need, such as mounts, cables, memory cards, batteries and chargers in one place.
Films shot with sports cameras became very popular because they allowed people to record and share their achievements as the person playing the sport sees them. The most common type of mounting is a rubber headband. However, this type of mounting is not very stable, so airsoft players usually use special adapters for helmets, which are added in place of the night vision scope mounting. Mounting a sports camera on the chest is discouraged, as the player who is about to shoot obstructs a large part of the image with the replica, and the camera braces do not work with tactical equipment.
The second most common type of assembly is to mount the camera directly on the replica. A special adapter is used to connect the camera to the RIS rail. A GoPro mounted on a replica usually acts as a so-called Scope Cam, i.e. a camera that records the image seen through an optical sight. In the post-production phase of the footage, players apply a targeting reticle or collimator dot to the image. Mounting the camera on the replica is usually done by players, for whom it is an additional camera, second only to the one on the helmet. Two cameras capture the same gameplay and the player, when creating the video, decides which footage to choose. The use of two cameras is particularly popular with snipers and sharpshooters, who focus the scope cam on distant objects, allowing the viewer of the video to observe the trajectory of the bullet and the actual hit. The downside of such a solution is a small load on the front of the replica, which may translate into spoiling the overall balance.
