A week or so ago we hit up the pool and I brought my GoPro and I realized I really missed bringing that sucker out and snapping pics with it, cause it goes where my big camera cannot (or, heck, where I won't allow it to go!). But, as this was the first time I'd used it this summer, the photo quality was lacking. The version of GoPro I had was OLDDDD -- one of the originals I think -- and it was HUGE (cause I had an external LCD panel attached to it too) and heavy and just not my photo standards I was use to.
So today I was browsing the interwebs and noticed some amazing GoPro snaps in a photog group I'm in and I decided dang nabit, I wanted to upgrade my GoPro! So I did just that :)
Rosie joined me to Target tonight to get the GoPro Hero 6 Black and oh my gosh I am IN LOVE already!
After we got home from dinner with my cousins, I decided to try it out! Unfortunately the battery was DEAD so I let it charge for like 15 minutes to get a bit of juice and then decided to do a few snappies of the kiddos playing to test it out.
First off, I LOVE that it has WiFi to jump the pics/videos to my phone, but also love that it has SOOOO many more options for shooting modes and such than my old one! And, this one is 100% waterproof by itself so you don't even need a case! How awesome is that??!!?
I am super duper impressed with it thus far -- the video and picture quality far surpasses my old one and I am just loving the quick burst mode and such it has!!
I love the wide angle/fish eye effect it gives SO MUCH! It's definitely a different look from my big camera snaps but a fun one nonetheless.
I think I'll have to bring it on our 4th of July festivities tomorrow and next time we go to the pool and lake (this weekend!!) to see what I can capture. Anyways, I am LOVING my new camera SO MUCH! I hope you all have a great 4th of July!
