GoPro Cameras have become the number one pick for creating memories without limits, then reliving them in stunning HD quality.
While our smartphone cameras or professional DSLRs are more than capable of capturing everyday moments, the GoPro offers a range of unmatched features that make it the perfect action-cam! Here’s our main list of reasons why you should make a GoPro your next gadget.
Compact & Light
Back to our phones and cameras – sure, they’ve gotten marginally thinner over the years but they’re massive compared to the average GoPro camera, which fits in an adult’s palm. In addition to being small, they’re extremely light as well, which means there’s less weight to carry around on that next jetskiing trip.
In earlier years, our tiny feature phones probably didn’t even have a camera. And even when they did, the quality (by today’s standards) would be unwatchable. So, does the even tinier GoPro suffer from this dilemma? Absolutely not. In fact, most GoPro cameras record up to 60 fps (frames per second) video at Full HD. Not to mention the fact that they also take stunning selfie photos too! However, you’ll need to get your footage onto a mobile device to really admire the beauty of your footage as the GoPro’s 2-inch LCD display isn’t ideal for viewing.
Shockproof and Waterproof
Didn’t we say “without limits?” Most GoPro cameras offer waterproofing and come in a protective waterproof case that is capable of withstanding depths of up to 197 feet (60 meters). As for withstanding shock – this tough little camera can go tumbling down a flight of stairs at home or even a hillside on a hiking trip. Chances are it will come off without a scratch. Of course, the durability would depend on the model and whether or not it has an added case for increased protection.
Superb Wide Angle Shots
Remember having to squeeze every one of your friends and that beautiful scenery all into one photo? GoPros eliminate that issue when you’re off on an adventure with your friends and capturing the moments as they happen. The GoPro camera line typically features extreme wide angle lenses which capture a great amount of what’s in your view. Some even feature fish-eye lenses just in case you’re going for that special look. The only downside to GoPro lenses is that they have a fixed focal length. What this means for you is that you won’t be able to zoom in or out on your subject while shooting.
Generally, these powerful little cameras come in at various price ranges and for some, are totally worth the investment. Now the choice is up to you … Are you ready to GoPro?
