As a final hurrah to summer 2014, Labor Day weekend I hiked to the top of Chautauqua Park Trailhead #1 on Saturday and finished off the holiday celebration with a 38 mile bike ride to Eldorado Springs, both located in Boulder, CO. I’m not sure if I’m what you would refer to as an adrenaline junkie or a thrill-seeker, but I do love outdoor adventure and last summer I wished I had a GoPro to capture it all. At times it was too dangerous to take pictures or video…I remember asking during my Eldorado Springs’ homestretch. Of course, though, it couldn’t be done. My husband was also riding a bike. This is why the GoPro is on my wish list this Christmas, and I think it’s a great gift idea for anyone looking to record all the action that brings joy and purpose to life.
Currently one of the best selling cameras, the GoPro HERO series was recently released. I’ve been browsing the action cameras on the Best Buy website and reading reviews on various brands and what they offer. Best Buy has the broadest assortment of action cameras and the latest accessories and mounts from the top brands. When it comes to the latest in technology, I always shop at Best Buy. At Best Buy I know I’m getting the best price on everything from cameras to computers and other gadgets because I do my homework, and I always take advantage of their price matching program.
Here’s the specs. I really like the GoPro HERO4 Silver because of its built-in touchscreen.
It costs about $400. Top of the line is the GoPro HERO with 12x the performance processor of its predecessors and a super fast video frame rate. There’s also the GoPro HERO4 Black with 2x the performance. Other action camera’s on the market include the Garmin Virb Elite and Sony’s POV Action Cam. The Virb has GPS, which is cool.
I can’t wait to unwrap this one. Oh the places my GoPro and I will go!
