The GoPro Camera allows the audience to look through the eyes of the sports person and see exactly what they see as it happens. The GoPro is great for capturing daredevil sports like skiing, Car Racing, Motorcycle racing and I have even see it used in football games.

Go Pro have not changed the exterior of the camera since the introduction of the Hero and Hero 2 editions however with the Hero 3 they have ditched the classic sturdy metal clad look and have gone with just the silver clad on the front and on the back and sides have gone with a softer black plastic. This makes the camera easier to hold and it also makes it look more aesthetically pleasing.
GoPro allow you to use there great editing software called Cineform Studio and is available to download from the GoPro website. The software provides basic editing tools to help you trim clips and adjust Contrast Sharpness exposure and saturation.

The GoPro Hero 3 Black edition is a great piece of camera equipment and since I had the pleasure of working with it and I know the power it can unlock and the HD videos it can produce. The only thing is the price that’s seems to put people off but if you look hard enough you can pick them up on Amazon for cheaper than in a store.
