I used the Gopro Hero 3 Black Edition on a walking trip in Spain. I was attracted to the wide angle lense because I was shooting footage along a riverbed. I appreciated the small size as I was carrying everything on my back.

Good for action footage. The wide angle footage is good for novelty value and impressive landscapes.
- Make sure you set the date and time first. (I didn’t).
- Most video footage produces large file sizes. Seems obvious but worth remembering you will need 1. plenty of disk space and 2. a computer fast enough to process the files.
There are many new products on the market similar to GoPro, but the newer GoPros look to be the best tech available even if they are a little pricey.
