GoPro?
*clicks* Of course.
 
2012-09-15 02:23:12 PM
Just show the video, we don't need the constant cuts to the blonde presenter for her overly dramatic reactions and commentary.
 
2012-09-15 02:23:47 PM
Someone please end those hosts and just show the farking video. Who are these morons?

Fark you, HuffPo with your autoplay videos.

Let me guess, a `news' article cleverly disguised as a Go Pro advertisement?

Yep.. Shocker.. Why is this shiat on the front page?

It's crazy how many bad things are happening to these cameras all of the sudden, isn't it?

Meh. Seagull stealing GoPro cam was much cooler. (See thread in Video tab)

"Pretty people" with talking heads.

Oh my god, just link the f*cking YouTube video instead of these obnoxious babble-ons. Their faces must hurt at the end of the day from all of that phony enthusiasm - and they f*cking deserve it.

Anyone else find the blond woman intensely irritating?

and blondie... STFU.

I thought the blonde woman was very clever and an insightful tour guide through the video. Hopefully she has a sex tape with the same witty guile.
 
2012-09-15 02:53:58 PM
Dear "Presenter",

Shut the fark up. No one gives a rancid fark what you think. Just show the video!

2012-09-15 02:54:07 PM
Has anyone mentioned how annoying those commentators were, yet? Jesus.
Here's the full video without all the inane babbling.

Yep.


My first thought as well, but it won't stop me asking for one for X-Mas. Finally have a car worth taking to the track; I really like their automotive "kit"; unless someone has suggestions otherwise?

I didn't think I'd be able to witness an even more annoying version of TMZ, but...there it is. It's amazing what annoying people can do when they put their minds to it.
 
2012-09-15 03:14:21 PM
I would like to see more of the brunette in the video.

You can keep the blonde.
 
2012-09-15 03:14:46 PM
your telling me it survives without a scratch and then just HAPPENS to land at just the right angle to film all of them landing?

oh come on.
 
2012-09-15 03:16:54 PM
It's DOUCHETACULAR!
 
2012-09-15 03:18:21 PM
Now if they can design a sky-diving suit with the same protection

It sounded like the evening of the day I first fapped.
 
2012-09-15 03:21:16 PM
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: The video, like other "falling gopro while skydiving" videos, is complete garbage in motion.

Hence the seriously overwhelmingly irritating host and lackeys.


So to all the people saying "play the video already." Ya got double-duped.
 
2012-09-15 03:22:49 PM
The original youtube video is at the bottom of the article, for some reason. I'm not sure why they included that other one.
 
2012-09-15 03:25:28 PM

It's especially incredible because it happened to Real People.

I don't find it so impossible for the camera to have survived: they aren't that massive, and the tumbling action creates a lot of drag that slows the fall considerably. There's a whole class of model rockets that don't use any parachute or streamer for landing, just the drag from tumbling. The camera is already built pretty ruggedly, even without a case. It helped that it landed in grass/turf and not concrete. Certainly the memory chip would have survived concrete, though the optics and imaging chip may not..
 
2012-09-15 03:46:14 PM
I saw this on YT without any annoyances but the first thing I thought wasn't "wow that camera survived that?" it was "what a piece of shiat, it only stayed on the guys head for 4 seconds!" Why would you buy something that only does videos of it failing?
 
2012-09-15 03:52:33 PM
I found the only thing more annoying that HuffPo articles .. HuffPo videos

Eh, there are some pretty good videos out there of GoPros not failing.

They're good little cameras. This was probably operator error.

Former customer lost his GoPro at 195 mph at the track. It slid pretty far before coming to a rest in the gravel. This isn't really impressive. Did anyone else mention that this wasn't that impressive. Also the video sucked.

Now I want to kill subby, kill the Huffington Post, kill those assholes on whatever show it is, and kill GoPro.

That's what you have done subby.

This, oh, and that whole show is so lame, it's almost as bad as when the city is doing repairs to the street and there are five people out there with only one actually working. I can see maybe two people hosting a show like that, and even then, still lame, but do they really need that many people?

That's what I like about this place. There just isn't enough mindless rage in the world. Fark.com does what it can to fix that.
