To most people and photographers the brand GoPro is synonymous with ‘Action Photography’. Images of skydivers, wing suit clad base jumpers, surfers, Kite boarders and gravity defying bikers performing aerial acrobatics spring to mind.
But on the flip side of these matchbox size cameras is the vivid composure of saturated landscapes, candid life studies, nature documentary, aquatic moments, night scapes, time lapse photography and image distorting super wide angles. And then there are the videos.
With imagination, composition and artistic license these cameras are ideal for travel, outdoor, family and nature photography.
Add the WiFi remote control (up to 180m) and waterproof housing, this is a photographic power house that I never leave home with.
My photography started at school with a Pentax SLR system weighing over 9kg, streamlined to a pocket camera, progressed to a bridge camera. Now, for simplicity, lightweight packing and awesome images I never leave home without a GoPro in my pocket. Ever.
