Shark tries to eat GoPro, company offers reward for return

Shark Tries To Eat GoPro, Company Offers Reward For Return

What happens when you're attempting to film a shark with a GoPro and it's ready to eat? One cameraman learned no camera is safe. CBS reports on the camera's fate, "During a new video test off the coast of New Zealand, a great white shark ate the camera. It fell out of the shark's mouth and headed to the bottom."

The 18-foot great white shark chomped on a gadget from tech company 360Heros. It combines several GoPro cameras to create an array for 360-degree videos. And the team really doesn't want people to miss out on the stellar footage. Right This Minute reports, "The guys over at 360Heros are putting out a reward -- a $5,000 reward to anybody that can recover the array and the SD cards inside."

On its website, the company even created a "Missing" ad saying, "This camera gear and its contents are far more valuable to us than they are to the sea creatures they now co-inhabit the ocean floor with (no offense to the fish and plant life)."

So if you want some extra cash, the ocean floor might be a good place to start. Although you might have to fight a shark for that camera.

Sometimes, you can get bitten by a shark and not even realize it.

"Typically, you wouldn't want to mess with a shark after it's eaten..."
Whoever it is at AOL that is responsible for the teaser headlines, please read the story before posting.

They didn't give an estimate of the depth of water in that area. I hope some young fool diver doesn't try something stupid there...

Huff post made it harder for people to post in most of their articles trying to keep the jerks off the posts. Unfortunately it backfired , as you can see below with all the hate posts that have nothing to do with the article. Go back to open posts, Huff! We at least used to get some good posts in between the bad and the ugly.

Isn't that going to encourage a lot of people to go out and kill sharks?

"...a Great White shark ate the camera." Apparently not.

And it wasn't on some kind of tether besides that stick, which encouraged the shark to take a taste of it? how dumb....
