While checking out all of the cool new products at CES 2014 in Vegas this past week I came across the GoPro booth. I was astonished to learn that last year alone GoPro sold a reported 2.3 million cameras, and gained 6.3+ million Facebook likes! Not only that, they host a daily giveaway where one person wins each of every product they sell.
What is GoPro?
GoPro has become the producer of arguably the “World’s most versatile camera.”
Since GoPro’s HERO cameras are all wearable and gear-mountable they appeal to a wide range of fans – from the extreme sports enthusiasts to anyone wanting to share their adventures in true high-quality, HD style.
Sounds cool, right? Wait until you see a video shot with a GoPro HERO. This video was shot by a hiker while backpacking on the West Coast Trail in the Pacific Rim National Park, Vancouver Island, Canada. If it doesn’t inspire you to want to lace up your hiking shoes and grab a pack and just go I don’t know what will.
You know when you experience something so awe-inspiring and beautiful you just know that any photos you take just won’t do the moment justice? Well, a GoPro really credits the beauty of such a moment.
If you’re not the outdoorsy type, I guarantee that watching this clip will make you feel like you’re along for the journey (minus any aching muscles and feet).

Ok, so I forgot to mention.. That amazing video was filmed back in 2011… That’s 3 years ago!
Can you imagine what a NEW GoPro HERO would capture?
Take a look at the GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition:
The HERO3+ Black Edition is not only wearable and gear-mountable, it’s 20% smaller than its predecessors, it delivers improved image quality – in fact, it’s the most advanced GoPro ever made. SuperView™ is a new video mode that captures the world’s most immersive wide angle perspective, while Auto Low Light mode intelligently adjusts frame rate for exceptional shots even in low-light environments. Combined with 30% longer battery life thanks to a high-capacity lithium-ion battery, 4x faster Wi-Fi, a sharper lens and compatibility with all GoPro mounts and accessories. 12.0 MP still image resolution. Waterproof housing protects the camera during submersion in up to 131′ of water. Mono microphone records clear audio. MicroSD memory card support.
It gets near perfect reviews, too. Rated 4.6 out of 5 stars by 59 customers on GoPro’s website. 4 out of 5 stars on Amazon.com with 212 reviews.
Not only has GoPro been claimed to be the best-selling camera of its kind, the HERO3 camera has been used by many professional production companies. The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences recently awarded the HERO3 camera an Emmy for its contributions to filmmaking and production. Wow!
“We have used GoPro cameras in some of our biggest productions, like Survivor and The Bible. GoPro has allowed us to capture and share fascinating new perspectives that previously weren’t possible or were too costly, which in the end makes for better story telling. We are always excited to see what GoPro is working on next,” remarks award winning producer, Mark Burnett.
For a camera with that much power, we’d assume it to have a steep price point…Right? Well, the GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition Camera retails for $399.99.
