Nail the perfect point-of-view shot with the GoPro Hero 11 and GoPro head strap


Some of the greatest sporting and adventure moments happen to you when nobody is watching. Or from only your point of view. Capture these epic moments with the GoPro Hero 11 camera and the GoPro head strap accessory.

GoPro's latest range of action cameras, the Hero 11 Black, Hero 11 Black Mini, and Hero 11 Black Creator Edition, were released late last year, adding a larger sensor, smoother stabilisation, bigger battery life, and a range of other enhancements over the already excellent Hero 10 Black camera, and its predecessors. Actually, you won't go wrong with any of the GoPro Hero cameras, so depending on your budget, you'll still be happy snagging an older version. Of course, for the top-of-the-line features, it's the GoPro Hero 11 Black you want.

Features include the widest field of view, as well as the tallest, out of any GoPro model, along with the smoothest image stabilisation, and new night video capture modes. With an optional GoPro subscription (currently $34.99 for the first year) your videos will also upload safely and securely to the GoPro cloud with action highlights sent to you automatically.

That's not all: the GoPro has a wide range of accessories to maximise the many ways you can use the camera - affix it to your bike, your wrist, your chest, your head, even your dog. Use it in the sun, in the water, in the snow. iTWire's been trying out the GoPro head strap and it provides stunning action-packed videos capturing running, jumps, and even crashes.

The head strap is part of a combination; in the box, you get both the head strap and a QuickClip so you can attach your GoPro to helmets or your head (via the head strap), or clip it to baseball caps or belts (via the QuickClip). It sells for $34.95 both online and in stores like JB Hi-Fi.


This really is the ideal way to get amazing recordings directly from your point of view - head-on into the action. Share the footage to relive your greatest moments, or step through it frame-by-frame to discover what went wrong when the moment was less than great. And, thrill your viewers by allowing them to see what you saw.

My daughter is an avid horse rider and she's been using the GoPro Hero 11 Black camera, strapped to her helmet with the GoPro head strap. Here she is riding along a beach. This was captured in 4K and you will see the vibrant colours shine through, and you can also see the image stabilisation in play. Remember, this is on the back of a horse, yet the video motion is easy and fluid. You can see the GoPro camera in the shadow.

 That's a nice little jaunt on the beach. However, things don't always go so smoothly. Here, our equestrian friend decided he most certainly did not wish to partake in jumping:

Happily, both the horse and rider were unscathed. The GoPro fared less well, with the back screen cracking. Fortunately, the GoPro subscription mentioned above also provides two "no questions asked" camera replacements per year. Our next accessory will definitely be a protective case.

You can see the footage above in SD, HD, and 4K, while my daughter's edited version for social media is below:

 With the GoPro camera and accessories, you can both live in the moment and capture your highlights. And with the headset mount you can ensure the action is shown from your point of view like never before.

Hybrid cloud promises to bring together the best of both worlds enabling businesses to combine the scalability and cost-effectiveness of the cloud with the performance and control that you can get from your on-premise infrastructure.

Reducing WAN latency is one of the biggest issues with hybrid cloud performance. Taking advantage of compression and data deduplication can reduce your network latency.

Research firm, Markets and Markets, predicted that the hybrid cloud market size is expected to grow from US$38.27 billion in 2017 to US$97.64 billion by 2023.

Colocation facilities provide many of the benefits of having your servers in the cloud while still maintaining physical control of your systems.

Cloud adjacency provided by colocation facilities can enable you to leverage their low latency high bandwidth connections to the cloud as well as providing a solid connection back to your on-premises corporate network.

Download this white paper to find out what you need to know about enabling the hybrid cloud in your organisation.
