GoPro Hero 8 Black TimeWarp Test

Today I decided to finally test out TimeWarp on my GoPro Hero 8 Black while going on a family bike ride. I was in the lead the entire way so there's no chance of spotting the family in any of the shots. I decided to use the voice command to start and stop the TimeWarp … Continue reading GoPro Hero 8 Black TimeWarp Test

The Hero 8 Black is ok…. just a slight upgrade to the 7

I’ve had the GoPro Hero 8 Black for a little bit now and compared to the Hero 7 Black, I’m not really seeing that big a difference between the two cameras except for the overall form factor being different (not having a cage is pretty awesome) and the menu system onboard the camera is different … Continue reading The Hero 8 Black is ok…. just a slight upgrade to the 7

Upgrading to the GoPro Hero 8 Black

GoPro had a really great deal when they announced the Hero 8 Black, $100 off the camera if I traded in one of my older cameras. Over the years I’ve had a ton of digital cameras for my vacations. This is mainly due to my iPhone camera not having enough megapixels and the cameras that … Continue reading Upgrading to the GoPro Hero 8 Black

No new tech to blog about…..

I've come to the point where I'm not acquiring tech in a regular interval (I used to get something new every few months) but I think I've stabilized on just a few different platforms rather than trying new things out.

GoPro Hero Session – Using it in water

I've had my GoPro Hero Session 4 for a couple of years now and the main use for it was to use it while I'm doing activities like skiing, swimming, or anything else where I can't really use my iPhone.  I recently had a family trip in Hawaii and I used it a lot there … Continue reading GoPro Hero Session – Using it in water
