Hi all, looking for a method to document my family vacations/personal trips.
I AM TERRIBLE PHOTOGRAPHER so I don't like to take photos, and if I did, I'd use my phone.
However, I am interested in using video and recording my trips (domestic and internationally) through there, and the GoPro caught my eye because it is small, portable, durable, and the video quality seems good. But it is relatively expensive at $400.
Another thing: The GoPro seems advertised for sports/extreme stuff/underwater, etc which I do not do at all nor plan on doing.
My uses would be this:
- Use GoPro to record me and family walking around town/place (I saw you can clip it to your backpack strap securely)
- Use it to record me walking around museums, parks, monuments, etc
- Use it to record walking/climbing up huge cathedrals, monuments, towers, bridges, etc
- Use it to record train/car rides and scenery
I also know that you can take stills/photos using the camera which I might do occasionally
I hope GoPro owners or people who have used them can chime in and help me decide. Thanks!
