GoPro Camera Customizations
I've been a busy boy these last couple of weeks modifying and customizing a batch of GoPro Cameras incorporation wireless remote control and 2 types of delay timers in preparation for filming the Hamilton Island Cup. As i will also be paddling in all the events, i need to be able to have most of the Canoe Mounted Cams turn on and record at different parts of the course automatically, except the radio control type which will be controlled from the support boat.
This is what i have so far.
Have now finished and on water tested all three modified versions.The first picture is obviously the remote control version
The transmitter has a range of 500metres LOS and the four buttons have the following functions.
A - Powers Up/Down the GoPro and steps through menu.
B - Record On/Off and sets menu choices.
C & D do the same as A & B but on a different channel, that way I can control 2 GoPros independently or as many Cams as I want on each channel from just the 1 transmitter.
The second picture is the delay timers Type 1 and 2.
Type 1 will turn on the GoPro and activate record 5 seconds later.
Type 2 will turn on record only but it has AA Batteries in the box instead of AAA so will last 5 hours plus.
Both can be delay set from 1 min and up to 5 hours.
All totally waterproof and can take some rugged treatment.
There are 6 R/C type and 3 each of the delay timer Types.
Also some new mountsSuction cup Mount
.Manu Mount (front or rear of OC6 Mirage Outrigger canoe)
I'll add details of the construction soon (Be aware that modifying your GoPro in any way will most likely void your warranty)
