One of the cool things of gopro is that you can fix it to the instrument and it follows the movement of the instrument, creating a unique view.
We plan to experiment using gopro with as much Chinese orchestra instruments as we can.
First up is the Chinese bamboo flute – Dizi. We affixed the gopro hero 3 on the end of the flute using a clamp and goose neck. The camera is really small and light but the clamp is a bit heavy. The flute player Jonathan Tan has to get use to the extra weight at the end of the flute. But otherwise, the effect is quite cool.

The sound recorded from the in-built microphone is surprisingly good too.
What is different from the Gopro hero 3 music edition compared to the standard Gopro camera? Well, they just pack in the useful accessories that a musician would need into a bundle and sell it cheaper than if you were to buy them individually.
Price of Gopro Hero 3 Music Edition is S$580.
