Hello, GoProMarc Ehrenbold
GoPro is one of the most popular and highest selling camera brands today.
What is GoPro?
GoPro is a high definition action camera that is a popular choice for sports and other activities because it is lightweight, compact and mountable. It has the capability to take both still photos and videos – all in high definition output through wide angle lens. It can be controlled remotely or configured to work automatically.
The camera’s founder, Nick Woodman, was faced with problems when trying to capture photos of himself while surfing. This gave birth to GoPro ,which is now widely used in extreme action video and photography.
The GoPro Cameras
In 2014, the company introduced three new cameras that feature fixed lenses. There are two models without viewfinders and one that offers a touchscreen viewfinder.
GoProHERO4 includes an LCD on the front camera that is 2- bit. This allows the user access to the menu from the front which can be controlled using the front and top shutter buttons. This particular model can capture still images that are between 5 and 12 megapixels.
New camera models now feature an improved 4K video recording and built in touchscreen. The size and shape of the cameras, though, has barely changed over the recent years. The standard dimensions are 41mm (length) x 59mm (width) x 21 to 30mm (depth, depending on whether the lens is pulled out or not).
One thing that sets GoPro apart from other cameras is the wide range of accessories and mounts that you can get that will let you go anywhere and do anything with your camera.
