The Gopro Hero is an extremely small durable camera with a waterproof (down to 33ft or 10m), shock-resistant case.
It records ultra HD (1440p) in extra-wide or regular views.
It takes stills one at a time or rapid fire. You can relive them on the spot with the LCD display.

It has a host of mounts and adapters so you can wear it on your head or chest, attach it to a helmut, vehicle or toy.
We do our best to capture our family adventures on film because we realize our six kids won’t be small for long.
But we had an additional motivation for buying a Gopro; we wanted a fun and interesting way to teach our older kids (7 and 9) some skills.
The boys are learning how to find interesting angles in order to capture the scene they want.
They are being creative in coming up with ideas to film.
But most importantly, once the filming is done, they are using various software on the PC to edit the film.
They are looking for soundtracks with appropriate creative commons licenses to add to the videos.
Eventually, we would like to expand the learning and set up a simple blog for them to post to.
The basic skills they are learning include photography, typing, research, copyright laws, video editing and (eventually) html, public relations, product management, etc.
Check out the video montage we made when we visited a waterslide park near Seattle.
You and I both know, Best Buy advertises like crazy and shockingly is NOT the destination for the latest cameras and camcorders, including the new GoPro HERO+LCD.
We bought ours on Amazon and used our new Prime membership and got it in a day.
The new camera arrives in stores just in time for Father’s Day.
Make it an all-in-one awesome Father’s Day
