GoPro Cameras For Dummies Cheat Sheet

The GoPro camera has changed the way people make movies. It's not only affordable and durable, but also offers features that seemed like far-fetched wish-list items only a few years ago. You can mount this camera on almost anything, take it underwater, and capture the most expansive video scene known to mankind. Okay, that's a slight exaggeration, because the GoPro captures only 170 degrees. But you can put the camera in a tight space and still get an immersive view. When you couple the camera with the GoPro App on your smartphone, you don't even need to be near the camera to monitor the scene and make adjustments.
