Trippy Footage Of Wingsuiters Flying Through A Cloud Cave

July 27, 2018

This is a video captured with a GoPro Fusion with OverCapture of two wingsuiters exploring a cloud cave. Basically, the Fusion camera's OverCapture shoots video in all 360-degrees, so the video can later be edited in post-production to pan from one portion of the captured video to another (ie from looking forward to behind you). It was pretty cool to watch. It also got me thinking -- are there any skydive companies out there that will let you jump with a wingsuit without any prior skydiving or parachute experience whatsoever? Asking for a friend who just doesn't care anymore.

Keep going for this video, as well as another exploring the possibilities of OverCapture in other situations.

Thanks to Amir, who tried to tell me a wingsuit won't work from jumping off the top of my parents' garage, even though I suspect he just wants to do it first and steal my thunder.

    I've always wanted to use a wingsuit...

    Those big balls must be full of helium.

    10/10, would try.

    I have to admit this was insanely more magical than I thought it would be. Being able to watch the one guy below and one behind along with that sound, and the way the clouds just looked made it seem like the way we pictured it would be as kids. I can't wait to share this.

    I feel like wingsuit flying has got to be pretty fun. But on the other hand I don't wan to try because I don't feel like splattering myself onto some remote rock face. At least, not today.

    Really cool but he sure makes a good derp face the whole time

    Yeah, well, the people who actually do shit, don't tend to give a f#ck about how they look while doing shit.

    Cloud tunnels...Had no idea clouds could have tunnels.

    Is that what they mean when they say "partly-cloudy"?

  • TheQiwiMan

    That is seriously amazing. Not just the awesome video, but the technology. I love living in DA FEWCHA!

    These 360 cameras fascinate me. If anyone has one, what's the editing software like? I had a GoPro Hero camera for a while, but their software started to just act horribly after a while - would constantly crash, audio would be out of sync when the software actually worked and let me export a video, etc). I'd get back into GoPros if i knew for sure that everything works like it is supposed to.
