A popular camera that I like to keep in my back is the GoPro Hero3.  While I don’t use it as my primary camera, I find it helpful lots of shooting situations.  I’ll use it for  time-lapse, point-of-view, underwater, and aerial photography.  There really are a lot of things to love at the price point.

  • What is a GoPro? Where did these cameras come from and what are they good for?
  • The GoPro bodies. What are the challenges with the form factor?
  • Essential GoPro gear. What do you need to get the best shots?
  • Powering the GoPro. How can a little camera use so much juice?
  • Accessing GoPro menus. How to stop driving yourself nuts pushing buttons and actually see what you’re doing.
  • Essential menu commands. Which commands will get you a quality shot?
