Re: GoPro - What do you think?

I love mine. I have the hero II wish i had the III.

I work with someone who went to college with the owner of the company. He apparently is doing well for himself. He has created a great product, he deserves it.

I would suggest a better microphone for an accessory.

Re: GoPro - What do you think?

I got a Hero 3 Black late this season. Planning next year to use it for kite video or quad-copter video of us sailing.

Re: GoPro - What do you think?

What video editing software are you using to edit Go-Pro Video?

Re: GoPro - What do you think?

I used the video editor that came with Windows and I was content with it. It wasn't hard to use, and it allowed me to combine footage from the GoPro with footage from my iPhone, including rotating the video from the iPhone. I'll have to look at the GoPro.

Re: GoPro - What do you think?

I love my Gopro. I have used it Sailing, mountain biking and skiing. I am still learning video editing techniques but here are some that I have slapped together. Youtube dumbs down the resolution on playback here. You can click on teh little gear wheel at the bottom right to up the resolution.

Sailing fast with the chute a few weeks ago.

Some mountain biking action in Vermont last July.

Skiing in Vermont last Christmas.

He video'd feeding his pet turtle, Diamond, soy beans.

In time those mundane looks into someone's life can be very valuable.
I would bet you do a lot of interesting things.
Priceless!

Re: GoPro - What do you think?

I don't own a Gopro so can't help there.

But i do have a suggestion to help get some great POV shots of the boats you are delivering. That is to incorporate Kite Aerial Photography. Best done with a hardy camera like the GoPro. KAP shots are very impressive! There are some boat KAP vids on You Tube.

There is an entire mini industry built around KAP. The equipment needed, the learning curve, etc, big resource well. Once you've got flying the kites down, the learning curve is shorter than learning how to edit a good short film. And you've already got that part down.

Kites are old school. Go for the new Drones. Much easier to control and you can get shots while coming in from a distance or going away.
