Come & See what the GoPro Can Do for You!

If this little beauty...

These two boys are mine.
This action shot was obviously NOT taken with an awesome
GoPro HERO camera from Best Buy.

can take my action pictures from looking like this...


and turn them into pictures that look like this!!!! (the above picture is taken from a GoPro Camera from Best Buy), then oh yes, and how, I am all in!


Seriously, do you see what I mean?
That is an awesome, very clear, fast-moving action shot!


I think owning this camera would call for some great vacations.
In fact, with winter fast-approaching, I'm thinking a fabulous ski trip should be on the agenda.
(What better way to break in the camera? Makes perfect sense to me!). ;)

Once upon a time I had a good camera that I really liked. It broke...on the middle of a scenic boat tour in Chicago (because that's just how those things go). Since we were on a mini-vacation and I really wanted to take home some great pictures (always my favorite souvenir), I got a cheapie point-and-shoot at the drugstore down the street from our hotel, because something is better than nothing.

For Christmas last year, hubby got me a huge upgrade from that point-and-shoot, but it still doesn't get great action shots (even with the action shot setting).

We're an action family! We do water sports in the summer, play school sports in the Fall and Winter, and we like fast things like roller coasters, sky diving, sledding, snow boarding, etc. Getting cool pictures of all of the above would be oh so awesome!!

Fortunately, there is hope.

Can I get those shots without having to do those things? I am so not a thrill seeker...

Masshole Mommy said...

Wow that is so cool!! I totally want one for when I go skiing..'

Pat Hatt said...

Wow, that sure gets some great shots.

Nicole Ramage said...

I thought I wanted an actual camera until I got one and I've used it twice. I never remember to take it with me and it's just easier to use my cell phone.

GayNYCDad said...

OMG, I just wrote about these same cameras! I need to buy one for myself!

The Positive MOM said...

I dream dream dream of a GoPro... and now I am drooling over one even more!

Theresa Mahoney said...

I would love to have one of these. I have a very expensive SLR camera, and still the action shots suck! I can't figure out how to stop the ghosting on the movements :( I wonder if I could talk hubs into a Go Pro?

Anonymous said...

I have been looking at these for some of our trail adventures. My oldest son has something similar and it is neat to see the things him and his friends do because they are a bit more adventurous than I am.

Tracy Iglesias said...

By the time I go to write about these I will probably really want to get my own! It's great to be able to capture clear motion and action shots!

Annie said...

The first time I ever heard of Go Pro was from country artist (the BEST one EVER in my opinion) Brad Paisley. He would grab Go Pros from people in the audience, use this camera on his guitar and play with the camera on his guitar. Then, that person uploaded them and he reposted the videos on his Facebook page. (Genius marketing idea)

The videos you can make with a Go Pro are just AMAZING. I want one so bad.

I got my husband a GoPro last year (From best buy of course) for Christmas because he is an avid skydiver and he loves that thing. He just mounts it to his helmet whenever he jumps and gets great shots of his view from 10,000 feet in the air. SO beautiful!
