Camera House : Better Pictures 8
Tackle the gnarliest surf and capture all the action with the GoPro Hero Surf – a professional quality mountable HD video and still camera that records at 1080p at 30/60 frames per second. Waterproof to 60m, it features a quick release housing mount. Make better use of your GoPro camera with this Chest- Mount harness. Fully adjustable to fit all sizes, this harness is a great option for shooters who need free use of their hands (such as skiers, mountain bikers etc). It gives you a lower perspective than the head-mount making watching the action a more immersive experience. Strap your GoPro camera on just like a watch. This waterproof mount (to 60m) allows you to easily capture all your underwater shenanigans.

And Putt should know about unique perspectives. He spends several months of the year leading photo tours to glorious destinations such as the Flinders Ranges, Cradle Mountain and the outback of the Northern Territory. Putt believes that there are several advantages for the enthusiast in attending a photo tour, suggesting it is a great “opportunity to learn from our leaders and fellow participants about their camera, their photography, and themselves”. “Going to the best locations in Australia gives the participants the opportunity to photograph ■ Uluru storm Feature outDoorS 13 012_Bpics8_Outdoor_v3.indd 13 7/03/12 10:33 AM
