GoPro Slow Motion Beach Video

Kalama Beach Kailua GoPro Session

I have recently been given a GoPro (http://gopro.com/) camera as a Christmas gift and have absolutely fallen in love with it. The ability to record HD video at 120 frames per second is just awesome. The kids and I have been messing around with it and have already captured some amazing footage.

The version we have been using is the Hero+ 3 Black Edition and has the ability to record video at 4k but I have been happy enough with the lower resolutions as I can increase the frame rates and get some amazing slow motion clips. GoPro have been increasing the frame rate capabilities with each version.

A. GoPro Hero – maximum 60 fps
B. GoPro Hero 2 – maximum 120 fps WVGA
C. GoPro Hero 3 (black edition) – maximum 120 fps 720

I have been quite happy using the HD 720 / 120 FPS settings but will use the 1080 whenever I don’t plan on capturing slow motion clips.

 

Not only is the camera amazing and fun to use but the free software provided by GoPro (http://gopro.com/software-app/gopro-studio) to help edit videos is also really quite fun to use. It kept crashing at first but found that if I pull all the videos off and store them locally first it works perfectly. I find it as easy to use as Apple’s iMovie and just as fun to use. I look forward to sitting down with all the footage captured during the day and pawing over the results.

Here is one of my favorite videos so far.

One Response so far.
