Capture Your Memories like the Pros

Capture Your Memories like the Pros

Best Buy Disclosure

Several years ago, we decided that we wanted to do a better job capturing the memories of racing the Viper on the autocross track. The handheld camera we had been using was cool but it was clunky and the stabilization just wasn’t ideal for the twists and turns that come with maneuvering a sports car around a bunch of cones. A new camera, the GoPro Hero, had recently come on the market so I decided to spring for it as a Christmas gift for Scott. It changed the way we recorded action from that day forward.

Interestingly enough, not just for us. We have watched the camera move from the specialty market to mainstream media. If you’ve ever watched Deadliest Catch, you’ve seen a GoPro in action. Survivor? Yes. Amazing Race? Yup.  Mythbuster. Uh-huh. It’s all over the place capturing amazing content that is even good enough for the big screen. I even found a website that shares when another GoPro has been spotted.

We’ve used our (first generation) GoPro Hero to record racing, snorkeling, roller coasters and more. While we always have our cell phones with us, they aren’t intended for action shots like these. Seeing our kids giggle and scream on the water ride is worth every penny that the GoPro cost. I think moments like that are worth capturing. Don’t you? Fast forward to the 2:50 mark and you be the judge.

In a few days, I’ll be headed to Denver for a media event where I’ll be driving around on the ice rink at Pepsi Center to test out Bridgestone tires. If the Bridgestone team allows me to, I plan to have our GoPro mounted on the dash to capture the event. Being able to capture cool activities and events is priceless.

Of course, we need to upgrade ours so we’re keeping our eyes open for the new ones to show up at Best Buy: GoPro Hero4, GoPro Hero4 Black and GoPro Hero Silver.
