HERO3 White Edition The perfect entry-level GoPro.

Are you looking for a great way to capture life’s moments? Sure a standard camera is fine for point and shoot shots, and DLSR cameras take spectacular photos. But… you always have to worry about, dropping the camera or getting it wet.. So many of lifes great photo opportunities are just left unfilmed, until now. GoPro, the camera that can go just about anywhere! Here is a little more information about GoPro from the website:

I was very fortunate to be able to check out, the HERO3 White Edition The perfect entry-level GoPro.

I'm a chicken when it comes to a lot of thrill rides, there are many rides that I simply will not get on and bribery won't work. But I'd still like to see what goes on in them especially those at WDW just because the ride designs are great and the I won't get to see it all because of my unwillingness to get on them. What's a girl to do? Strap a GoPro. to her willing husband and get to witness everything without having to step foot on the ride.

GoPro's are great at taking great HD video and not getting in the way or being large and bulky. You'll notice that GoPro's seem to be everywhere something worthwhile or crazy is about to happen. Why is that? It's because they're small, lightweight and take super clean HD video.
Why not commemorate something like jumping out of a plane or doing a sick trick while skateboarding or something as innocuous as walking through a line queue at WDW? Whatever you want to film you can and something else that's great is that you don't even have to use your hands. GoPro's can be mounted on just about anything from dashboards to heads....yes, heads.

Getting started is a snap and the camera is amazingly simple to operate. I'm not an over tech savvy gal but I was playing around with the camera and was amazed at the simplicity of it. The one thing that is recommended is when you get a micro SD card for the camera make sure you purchase a class 10 or higher card to make sure you get the best performance out of your GoPro. Believe me there is a difference in card classes and you want to make sure you get the right class. 

As a trial run with the camera my husband suggested we strap the GoPro to our daughter to see what her day is like in school....then we both realized that living through it once was good enough! From time lapse to HD video to still photos this little camera does it all and it's smaller than a deck of cards. If you can think of it GoPro can record it and make sure you have proof of it for all the world to see.
