I was the recent lucky recipient of a GoPro Hero 3 (thanks VW!), so I took it out to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk with some friends to take it for a spin. I had some much fun with this thing on my first day out. The lack of a screen on the back takes you back to the feel of a traditional film camera. You donâ€™t spend time reviewing every shot to worry if itâ€™s perfect, which lets you stay in the moment, enjoying your day. The view angle is so wide on these little things, though, that you almost always get a good shot. And the exposure for video is GREAT when shooting outside.
