Some Guy in China Wired a GoPro Inside an ENG Broadcast Camera. And It Actually Works
News Shooter has been reporting at the BIRTV show in Beijing, and they've come across something that you have to see to believe. I've managed to put together some ridiculous rigs in my time with cameras, and will likely do plenty more of them down the road, but hacking a GoPro HERO3 into an ENG camera is beyond anything I ever would have thought to do. The most amazing thing about the hack is that it's been wired completely internally to take use of the viewfinder in the camera and to actually be controlled by the buttons on the body. Had this just been a jerry-rigged solution, it wouldn't be nearly as interesting, but it turns the tiny-sensored GoPro into a fully usable camera. Why you'd want a GoPro inside something like this is another question entirely, but the quality would definitely need to improve before this is even something most people would mess around with.
