Go Big (Or Small) With the GoPro Hero 4

Go Big (Or Small) With the GoPro Hero 4

Extreme Fun. Enhanced Versatility.

As any extreme sports enthusiast will tell you, the GoPro Hero 4 has completely surpassed the average digital video camera to become the most widely used personal motion capturing device this side of Mt. Everest. With a feature set that will keep even the most professional videographer engaged for days, the GoPro Hero 4 boasts twice the processing power and twice the frame rate that its predecessor lacked. And with 4K video output to match the popularity of ultra HD televisions, it's hard to imagine going on adventures without this powerhouse of a camera.

So what does that mean for the average person?

More than likely, you won't be breaking records and jumping from the edge of space anytime soon (if you haven't seen it, check out this YouTube video of Felix Baumgartner's record-breaking freefall - filmed at several different angles with a GoPro camera). Of course, you might not even be into anything "extreme" other than playing frisbee with your dog, and that's okay too. The neat little thing about the GoPro is that it's versatile enough to take video underwater as you're swimming side-by-side with the sharks dolphins (it comes with waterproof housing), or you can simply use it as a device to capture life's more simple moments.

How is all of this possible? GoPro's versatile mounts and diverse accessory suiteā€¦

What separates the GoPro Hero 4 from its predecessors and other cameras in similar categories is the fact that you can buy a myriad of affordable accessories and mounts to attach the camera to just about any surface, person, or animal...frisbee-catching dogs included. Don't take our word for it - we encourage you to search for "GoPro" in YouTube and see exactly what pops up in the "Suggested Search" menu. After you browse a few of the top videos, click around and browse related videos. You'll see just how creative the average person can be as you get a look at a six-year old's first time riding a bicycle without training wheels (from her perspective). Take to the skies and watch an eagle (with a GoPro attached) soar over a beautiful valley and get a true "birds-eye view" of the world around us. While you're at it, watch the video with a mountain biker pedaling as fast as possible to avoid being eaten by the bear giving chase directly behind him. Spoiler alert: He escapes...just barely.

No matter how you decide to use your GoPro, you'll be sure to find just the mount you're looking for. In fact, we'll make it easy and list some of the more unique ones here for you.
