It’s no secret that aerial footage is nothing short of awesome. However, not everyone is willing to shell out $500 or even $1000 for a drone. Skier Nicolas Vuignier decided to opt against a drone and simply captured some very impressive aerial footage by simply chucking his camera into the air.
Disclaimer: it would be next to impossible to capture smooth and level footage by simply throwing your camera in the housing. Nicolas used the AER accessory which looks like a Nerf football and is designed to glide in the air and stay more level: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/aervideo/aer-throw-your-gopro
