Mrs Fixer wanted a camera to go snorkeling with and everywhere said "go pro go Pro". I thought "isn't that those little movie cameras extreme atheletes use"?

Turns out they actually make pretty good little photo cameras that double as movie cameras. She took the plunge with a Hero 8. Let the fun begin.

Anybody else use Go Pro cameras?

I have used them for underwater and mountain top adventures. Great little cameras with a lot of features packed in.

I’ve got 3 older go pros.

I use suction cup mounts and put them on roof of the car, forward and both sides, and drive through national parks.

Also use helmet mounts for skiing and kiteboarding.

I've had a couple of action cameras in the past. I never liked the fish eye on any of them. I found a Hero 8 on sale over the summer and picked it up. The video quality is excellent and you can adjust the viewing angle away from the fish eye.
