I've always been thinking about getting a GoPro, but felt like I'd lose it, the water would get in, or some other disaster was sure to unfold that would make it a big waste of my money. I just came across this video of a guy who lost his GoPro Hero while kite surfing, posted about losing it, and had it returned to him 2.5 months later: footage intact! He took the case apart, and the camera inside was totally fine! The memory card was still full of footage and not ruined at all. Check out the video to see some of the footage from when it was lost. I think it might be time for us to invest in some gopros @mcgraffy @yakwithalan
If I ever had my doubts about GoPros living up to the hype, they're kind of gone now?? That footage is so impressive!
@mcgraffy They do, and I think those ones would hold up the same!!
Well....I'm still not convinced I'd get mine back but they look pretty sturdy! and @happyrock recnetly posted about how they've got some cheaper models now that are still pretty great so maybe i'll go for it
This is awesome! Like you I haven't invested in a gopro yet because I worried they were just gonna be wasting money on something that breaks but this really proves its point, I think.
