- One of the top-rated action cameras on the market
- The perfect compact camera for snow sports
- Incredibly high quality image and video; highly reliable
Top quality footage, great action camera, easily mounted on your snowboarding helmet, incredibly reliable operation, cinema-quality video and images, top notch audio recording, durable, versatile, feature-rich, and better battery life than most action cams.
Pricey, and the helmet mount must be purchased separately.
Performance: When it comes to action cams, you'll find few on par with the GoPro Hero. The camera is designed to shoot AMAZING quality footage: 4K video shot at 32 FPS, or 1080p video shot at 120 FPS. The footage will be crystal clear and smooth, and you'll get a lot of it thanks to the built-in SD card. The image quality is far better than most of the action cameras on the market.
You'll get decent battery life from the camera, and the one-button operation makes it beautifully easy to start filming or snapping pictures (Single, Time Lapse, or Burst Mode) while hitting the slopes. Best of all, it's super compact, so it won't drag you down or throw off your balance as you shred powder.
Features: The recording features of the GoPro far exceed anything you'll get in your average action camera. You have total control over the resolution, frame rate, zoom, and every other aspect of the filming. When you hit the record button, you can rest assured the camera will capture high quality video. The Advanced Video Stabilization will make sure your video is smooth no matter how much you move.
Worried about damaging it? Don't! The camera is waterproof up to 33 feet, so it can handle more than a little snow. The little camera can be mounted on your helmet (mount sold separately) or a selfie stick to capture amazing pictures on the slope. With your subscription to GoPro Plus and the Quik photo editing app, you'll have no problem uploading your beautiful photos to a cloud storage drive or social media.
Price: At $200, this is a very well-priced action cam! It's going to stand up to a lot of hardcore use, and you'll find few other cameras are as well-suited for the slopes as this. Worth every penny if you want action pictures and quality movies of your snowboarding prowess.
