New tricks for an old dog!


cam-represent-HERO3plusSilverNewJust when I thought I had the latest and greatest gadgets, my kids gave me a GoPro for Christmas. I’ve seen the story on 60 Minutes about the founder of the GoPro cameras and saw what they can do – be strapped to a person or animal and record digital footage of wherever they go; skydiving, swimming, hunting, etc. (Just to be clear, no one is ever going to see footage of me skydiving, but floating down the Jordan, Au Sable or other trout stream, is another story.)

These gadgets are small. In fact, they’re about the size of a matchbox your grandfather used to carry to light his cigars. They are in a waterproof case and have a lens the size of a nickel.

Of course, this new compact hi-tech piece of equipment has a learning curve on how to use it. It comes with a manual …about the size of the camera. It’s probably not as complicated as I think, but between my out thinking myself and trying to read the manual …well, suffice it to say, this could be a “two fingers of bourbon” job.

Stay tuned!

    I’m a little jealous. I went to a short seminar this year at AMA Motorcycle Days this year on GoPro. It can do and be used in some fantastic ways. Enjoy the bourbon and Merry Christmas!

      Thanks for the encouragement. Regardless of anything else, I’ll definitely enjoy the bourbon. Merry Christmas to you as well.
