We have a Sony Action Cam, their version of a GoPro, and my techy DH loves it. Does everything a GoPro does for a fraction of the price, and after seeing side by side comparisons of pics and video off each we agreed the Action Cam took better pics and videos all around. They were less blurry in general, less distorted around the edges and it did WAY better in dim lighting and under water.
I'm using the gopro for my wedding to capture video. It's easy to connect them to anything and they are small. We also have a Canon DSLR but this is such a nice addition to our camera collection.How did this turn out? I've been looking for a videographer, but FI has a GoPro and if we can use that, it would save money.
I haven't tried it yet. We get married on 11/14/15. I need to find a gopro camera to rent first. The reason I was going to get video was because my grandparents weren't going to make it, but it turns out they will be coming, so now I might just have someone use my camera to get the whole thing. My fiancé did that for my friend's wedding and although not perfect, it still came out nice!
We really want to put the gopro camera on a stick so people can pass it around all night. They make much less expensive ones which I might opt for. They seem to be of similar quality.
I'll let you know how it goes!
