My parents got me a GoPro (2014 basic version) for my birthday and the timing couldn’t have been better because I took it with me on a trip out to Big Bend National Park with my dad.
This was the second hike of that trip for us and a few lessons I learned:
The waterproof housing makes the audio sound awful and incoherent.
Third party mounts work fantastically with my GoPro and saved me a lot of money! Specifically, this multi-pack of various mounts and attachments off of Amazon has proven to be amazing.
I really wish GoPro had made external battery packs for their basic model. I know, what should I expect at such an affordable price point? But I still can dream.
Being that this trip was my very first experience with a GoPro, I can wholeheartedly say that it was an awesome experience and the basic, entry level GoPro will serve as a gateway into me buying either the 2014 Silver Edition or the 2014 Black Edition here very soon!
I’ll be posting pictures and videos of my recent trip to Big Bend soon but, in the meantime, enjoy the hike above.
