Africa Safari & Victoria Falls – a GoPro HERO would have been a better choice for these once-in-a-lifetime photos

It’s time to start thinking about what to get my boys for Christmas, but as I do, I can’t help but wonder if I’m shopping for them, or for myself! Why? Because the “toys” I have my eyes on for them are same ones I’ve always wanted for myself. A mom can borrow from her kids, right? At least that’s what I’m hoping, because of the items I’m seriously considering for my world travelling son is the GoPro – HERO 4 Silver Action Camera.

I don’t go anywhere, or do anything fun that would require it, but my son, Brian, does. He’s been on safari in Africa, ziplined in several countries (I’ve lost track of all of them), stood at the edge of vast open space, and he’s petted a lion. Every trip he takes is an adventure and the GoPro HERO 4 with its improved image quality would help him capture it all.

GoPro – HERO 4  – He Needs it, I Want It!

My son is in New Zealand right now, camping and sightseeing for a month. Just a few weeks before he left to go down-under,  he toured Myanmar. The GoPro HERO 4 would have been fantastic on both trips. With its newer, more powerful processor and faster video frame rates of the HERO 4 would be a fantastic item to pack. It’s got a built-in touch display, so controlling the camera, playing back footage, and adjusting camera settings is said to be ultra-convenient on this newest GoPro model – just tap, swipe & go!

But does the GoPro HERO 4 Silver take great photos? Well, I’ll have to go by the reviews because I haven’t purchased one, yet. But with 1080p60 and 720p120 video, and 12MP photos at  30 frames per second, it’s said to the power of  pro-quality capture with the convenience of a touch display. At $399, it’s not going to fit everyone’s budget.  Thankfully there are several other GoPro versions to choose from – one to fit every budget!

Right now this camera is at the top of my Christmas list for him, but let’s keep this to ourselves, just in case I purchase the camera, but it doesn’t make it under the tree. I don’t need it, but being a tech geek, I can’t wait to get my hands on it!
