I’ve expressed my love for all things GoPro. That little sucker seriously packs a lot of punch. I’m constantly surprised how good the video quality can be for something so small. The latest version of the GoPro, the Hero 3, records 4k video at 15 frames per second and can record 120 frames per second at 720p. Along with these amazing specs are a series of accessories that will really take your videos to the next level. From suction cup mounts to underwater housing units, these guys have thought of everything. One of my favourite features of the new camera is the ability to use an app on your smart phone to control the camera.
I’ve compiled a few videos that show how remarkable the quality of this camera really is. If you’re looking for a list of other cameras make sure to check out my post on other cameras under $600
This video, released by GoPro, follows Kevin Richardson as he lets a crew document his passion for lions and the bond he’s formed with a particular group of lions. You really get a sense of the size, scale and detail of the creatures in a way that has never been photographed before. His chest camera-mounted lets you experience the power of these creatures first hand.
This video about pelican learning to fly for the first time is incredible. The story is impressive as well as the recover and teaching methods of the individuals in the video. What’s really striking in the camera angle, it’s something that has never been seen before. It was probably never even possible before. Check out the video to see some amazing visuals. It doesn’t even look real.
Okay, this final one is a bit cheesy but it definitely take you back to a time when everyone had a copy of Goldeneye on their N64.
Here’s a final compilation video that shows the range of these camera – snow, water, dirt, air – is there anything these cameras can’t handle?
