I'm seriously thinking about getting a Go Pro camera.
Which costs around $400.00 for basic unit.
I've been thinking about getting one on and off for a few months now, some times the urge to buy is stronger than other times.
My only fear is spending over $400.00 to buy camera, and then like other devices in the past, it just ends up sitting after a few weeks gathering dust.
But one thing the Go Pro camera offers that other cameras haven't that I've owned is...
1. It's durable, can take punishment.
2. Offers lots of attachments which allow you to film on the go while device is attached to your body, head, bike, car, pet, airplane, truck, boat or anything else you can think of.
The attachments allow hands free filming like a action reporter.
Other video cameras are so dern delicate, and you must hold with one hand which takes all the fun out of filming if alone or wanting to film documentary while riding bike or driving car.
3. Versatile in that you can use as a 'dash cam'.
The more a camera allows you to do, the more you're likely to use it.
The more creative a camera allows you to be, the more likely you are to share pictures or videos on Youtube, and other social media.
And a camera that allows you to be creative tends to 'get you out of the house' more, tends to make you want to go out and explore, try new things, so that you can share adventures later.
A camera that allows versatility is like having a friend along with you, in that you don't feel like you're alone knowing you can share images later with lots of people, and maybe even the media if you happen to catch something news worthy.
But again all that being said, there's still that possibility of buying it, and still not using it after a few weeks.
That's my fear, don't need to waste money device that I'll only use a few times.
All that aside, I really do want one and the price seems to be stuck at $400.00, it just won't seem to drop below that.
Below is a demo of the versatility of the action video camera.
