GoPro Take A Photo!

“GoPro take a photo” was one of the phrases that I used a lot during my vacation.  I went skiing with my family in Whistler BC and I took my GoPro Hero 7 Black.  I loaded this up with a 200GB memory card so I wouldn’t have to change cards during the trip.  I had it powered on most of the time and since there was so much awesome scenery, I kept on saying “GoPro, take a photo” as I skied down trails, went zip lining, snowmobiling, and dog sledding.  The GoPro has an excellent camera and I was able to capture some excellent pictures just by using that phrase.

There is another phrase “GoPro, start recording” that I used a lot too.  This would start a video recording hands free.  This gave me the ability to start and stop recording with out even touch the camera most of the time.  The only thing that I really had to manage was the power for the camera.  Every once in a while if I left the camera on for too long it would turn off on its own, there is a setting to wake up the camera with your voice but it drained the battery a lot faster so I kept this option off.

The GoPro Hero 7 Black is definitely a step up from my other GoPro, the Hero 4 Session.  The image stabilization, the video quality, and the photo quality are all improved.  The Hero 4 Session was great because of its very small size but since it didn’t have image stabilization, the video wasn’t the best unless I kept the camera completely still.

I’m adding some of the pictures that I took from my vacation just to show off how awesome the GoPro Hero 7 Black is just for taking still pictures.  I did set it up to take linear pictures rather than wide angle to try and avoid that fish eye effect.
