GoPro Hero 3 HD
We’ve all seen those shaky POV videos your uncle posted on YouTube from last year’s family ski trip, so if you’re going to make something equally shitty, don’t buy one of these. If, on the other hand, you want to film something worthwhile (personally, I’m a sucker for naked shark diving vids), then go pick yourself up a GoPro Hero 3 right away. It shoots professional quality HD video & 12MP photos with 30 fps burst, has built-in WiFi with available smartphone remote control, and is downright gnarly. That’s right…gnarly.
