Go pro mix - Ambush Speedball Park


I know most people here don't love reverse barrel-cam footage but I've done a couple forward facing barrel-cam videos and wanted to try something different. Maybe next time I'll do a mix of camera angles but for now I can't be bothered to switch the camera around during practice. I'm there to play paintball!

Here are some of my other videos if you're interested:

if it's in its case that it comes with, it won't be affected at all.

Yup. These things are designed to take much worse. There are videos of GoPros falling off planes, plumetting thousands of feet to the ground, surviving and recording every second.

Not sure why people post videos of the camera pointed at them. I understand a clip of a seconds long but 4 min of it pointed at you was pretty pointless.

I like the reverse angle. A mix of the two would probably be better, but I'd rather watch this than the videos of the ground + 10 seconds of paintball

that x1000. mixing it up with some barrel cam footage or any other angle would have been much better. 4:00+ of that view? no thanks.

Yeah, I know people here on PBNation don't really appreciate the reverse-barrel cam view, but I think the GoPro was designed for filming yourself just as much as it was designed for filming what you're doing.

Like I said in the description, I've made plenty of forward facing barrel-cam videos and I wanted to try something new. I did, for everyone's sake, edit the footage together to keep things interesting.

I wanted this video to appeal more to non-paintballers and just general extreme sports enthusiasts. And with that in mind I thought self-footage was more interesting than forward-facing barrel-cam (because non-paintballers wouldn't register any strategy. it would all just be "he's shooting at something"-footage).

That being said, I can agree that a mixture of camera angles is always better for any audience. I'll keep that in mind for my next video.

im with you, i think if they take some of the shots from the reverse and add it to a video with the forward and traditional sideline video it would be great. i love the footage of the snake slide with the reverse angle.

Props for the vids,now cut em up and make a nice little mix.
