GoPro cameras are primarily used by people doing extreme sports who want to capture all the action for posterity. But that’s far from their only use.
It’s time to get the gray matter working by deciding what you would film using a GoPro. The more creative you get, the more (entirely fictional) points there are up for grabs.

We want to know, What Would You Film Using A GoPro Camera? It’s a simple enough question, but one which will require you to sit and ponder for a few minutes, perhaps while adopting a pose similar to that of Rodin’s The Thinker. Or perhaps not.
First, for the uninitiated among you, a short introduction to the world of GoPro.
GoPro cameras are extremely versatile tools capable of going where other cameras would fear to tread. They’re used primarily by people participating in extreme sports, capturing footage from new and unusual perspectives. Like so…
As a result of this inherent versatility, there have been some amazing videos of people doing extreme sports. These are extremely impressive, but, sadly, none have been quite good enough to make me want to try these activities for myself. I would rather leave it to the professionals and/or idiotic amateurs.
I am personally much more likely to use a GoPro to do something a little more unusual. Such as strap it to a dog and send him off to the park for a day. Cue intriguing footage showing what a day in the life of a dog looks like. All from the dog’s own perspective. Like so…
Damn. I just remembered I haven’t even got a dog. So that plan is out. It seems the only sensible course of action is to do something utterly bizarre with my GoPro. Like, I don’t know, attach it to a ceiling fan in order to capture footage of me standing under it looking thoroghly unimpressed. Like so…
Wait, no, that won’t work either. I haven’t even got a ceiling fan. So none of these possible uses for a GoPro camera quite hits the spot. Hence the need for help from the MakeUseOf readership.
