Spring 2012 Video Contest: POV from Blue Shoes

Universal Orlando: Ever wondered what your shoes must be seeing? Here's a quick walk-through (literally) of USO/IOA. My 1st attempt at recording this new way.

I always wondered what my poor shoes go through/see at theme parks so I decided to try and find out at Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. Next time I want to take this POV to more creative heights.
Can you recognize these sights when you're less than 4 inches from the ground?

Major points to whoever can guess the method of filming this (No I didn't strap the camera to a crawling baby on a leash)

Oh... and to avoid YouTube laws of theme park music... there's just whistling in the background.

Pretty darned cool! I'm not sure how you did that, it's not shaking enough for them to be literally tied to your shoes or anything...

Great video, really original. Did you have the camera attached to a stick or something that you carried?

Nice video. I'd say it would be from his shoes.

It has got to be the new Go Pro Camera that is used for extreme sports. It has amazing stability features built in.

Very original. The whistling added a nice touch.

Pretty creative! I like it!

On a side note, I don't think it's a Go Pro as there isn't a built in stabilizing feature. I have both the new and original HD one.

However, if you do use some post production stuff to flatten the image (Go Pros give you a fish eye effect with the 170° view), as well as reduce camera shake, then maybe?

I wanna say it's a very low camera attached to a pole or steady cam?
