GoPro is a manufacturer of wearable digital cameras designed for use while capturing outdoor action images and video footage. As is the case with similar products produced by Contour, EyeSee360, and Vievu, the cameras sold by GoPro are frequently used in extreme-action videography, with footage often posted online or used in amateur TV and film productions.
Inspired by the inability to get the close-up footage he wanted while surfing in Australia, Nick Woodman founded the company as Woodman Labs, Inc. in 2002. Woodman created a line of professional cameras that could capture the angles desired by outdoor enthusiasts.
Later adopting the name GoPro, Inc., the company has since expanded its product line beyond 35mm wearable cameras to include digital still and video cameras and a popular line of fixed-lens HD video cameras that can be coupled together to generate 360 video. Due to the intended use of GoPro products, most cameras are designed to be waterproof. GoPro introduced HD Hero cameras in 2014, a line of fixed-lens cameras available either with or without a viewfinder, with one camera available with a touchscreen viewfinder.
GoPro's popular Hero line was first introduced in 2004. The current generation of Hero cameras can film in a 16:9 aspect ratio. As with the company's other products and accessories, the cameras in the Hero line are categories as either "Entry Level" or "Performance" to help you better select the camera that's right for your needs. Popular selections include the Hero4 Session, noted for its compact size, light weight and one-button control, and the Hero4 Silver, a high-performance model with built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
GoPro Studio is the company's line of video editing software that has proven to be just as popular as its wearable cameras. The software makes it easy to capture, create, and share video recorded by GoPro cameras. The GoPro app allows you to control your camera remotely, expanding the ability to record footage that would otherwise be very difficult, or impossible, to capture with standard cameras. GoPro Studio software can be conveniently purchased and downloaded via GoPro.com for immediate use.
You'll also find an assortment of mounts and accessories you can purchase for use with any GoPro camera. Mounts allow for either remote or hands-free use of your camera for both safety reasons and the ability to capture footage that's not as shaky as handheld footage. Available mounts head straps, chest harnesses, and a floating hand grip. More unique accessories include the 3-Way, a 3-in-1 mount that can function as a camera grip, extension arm, or tripod, and a Smart Remote, that allows you to control your camera from up to 600-feet away.
GoPro has a solid reputation for providing reliable and extensive customer support. In addition to online to phone support, the company also provides live assistance via GoPro.com. The company's website features the GoPro Support Hub where you can view product solutions posted by both the GoPro staff and other users. You can also access software updates from the GoPro website if you wish to upgrade your existing camera software.
In keeping with the company's theme of targeting customers with a penchant for leading an active lifestyle, you can select your cameras on GoPro.com by product type or by your preferred activity - or simply click the magnifying glass to find a specific product or accessory. GoPro is noted for its large-scale product promotions, as demonstrated by "GoPro HERO4: The Adventure of Life in 4K," a popular online video showcasing one of the company's top-selling products.
While GoPro offers periodic opportunities to save with online promotions throughout the year, you can further enhance your savings by starting your shopping experience with Giving Assistant.
