    That wasn't an attack, just a sniff out. Was it real? Could be.

    I'm changing the title: "GoPro Shark Encounter"

    Sure, that could have been real. Though I'm surprised the barnacles on those rocks didn't cut him up.



    Just think of a shark attack as reading a menu.

    Probably real. I just encountered a shark a few days ago.

    The YouTube Too Good To Be True Sleuths are setting their sights about a couple seconds before the one-minute mark (arguing the "sharks" are different and arrive at inconceivably different angles).

    I just put it in my video editor (Vegas Video) and checked it out frame by frame. It's definitely NOT edited. The angles are not "inconceivable." The swimmer simply turned around.

    I saw a video on tumblr where someone put a GoPro in their dishwasher.

    My dirty mind, of course, was thinking of really disgusting places you could put one.

    I'm suspicious of most GoPro videos. They do some serious astroturfing on various forums and websites. They're about to go public soon also. What a coincidence. icon_lol.gif

    I have a GoPro...and a JVC HD-7, and a Nikon D7000, and an iPhone 5. The GoPro is my go-to camcorder for first-person shooting. Otherwise I use the D7000, or the iPhone if it's just for fun.

    Looks pretty real to me. Animating a cgi shark underwater is not an easy task. Dunno. If it's fake, the dudes that made this should make a jaws sequel.
