Do you like taking photos and videos while on vacation?  I’m guessing your answer is either “yes” or “no, but my significant other does”.  Of course you want pictures of your awesome vacation so that: A. You can show off to your friends on social media, and B. You can look back at all the great times you had, when you’re back at home.  

Yes, your phone is probably pretty good at taking the selfies and pictures you ask another tourist to take for you, but how about those underwater shots of you and the turtle while you’re snorkeling, or the video of you stand up paddling for the first time?  I’m not sure you want to take your cell phone with you on those adventures, even if it is waterproof…


The GoPro HERO cameras are perfect for taking action shots, videos, and underwater photos or videos.  There are an assortment of handy accessories such as “The Handler” which is both something to hold onto and a floatation device, so that you’ll never lose your camera.  GoPro’s also come with tools that allow you to attach the camera just about anywhere to capture your action from the best possible angle.

I personally have the Hero 4 Silver, which is now outdated but is still amazing.  The newest version is the Hero 6 Black.  The GoPro Hero 6 Black iis waterproof without the use of a case and features 4K video and 12 MP photos which turn out amazing.  They are truly game changing products that will enhance the way you document your vacations to make your photos and videos look like a professional did it.
