Wide angle, per se, is fine, as long as the level of distortion is low enough not to be obvious and distracting.
Rick is so right..The Gopro and all the others are not really made for this application.. Unless your shooting birds 10 feet away..The distortion is too huge ( everything looks a 100 miles away you can‘t see the birds)..If you look at (Go Pro, etc.)the surfing, motoX etc looks great because the action is 5’ away and to the immediate sides…
Try one of these BUT if you want to do this as a profession or a class project you or someone will need to film..If you can’t give up one morning of shooting give it up and get a tri pod
or something like this..They even make them for the K. Flip
