Go Pro Hero 4 Silver: Review
I finally put my Go Pro Hero 4 Silver to use yesterday when I went out for a surf. They are such cool little inventions! I had a good laughing playing back to videos it captured of me getting absolutely pummeled (repeatedly) by waves.
I haven't used it enough to give it a proper review just yet but I CAN say that they are finicky little things!!!!!! I got incredibly pissed off with it because no matter what I tried, I couldn't get it onto Video and Photo setting. It only took videos so the pics above are all crappy screenshots I managed to get when watching the videos later. I did have it on video and photo mode but then I took it to a shop to buy the 'floaty back door' accessory and the annoying know-it-all behind the counter fiddled with the settings.... so I don't know if I was more annoyed with the shop assistant or the bloody camera. I've reset the camera to default settings and everything, but I just can't get it to do what I want!! Highly irritating - not to mention my near heart attack when I first plopped it into the water. It's a very expensive oopsy if water somehow leaks into the casing! Seriously, the little gadget has just caused stress in my life so far!! But they ARE cool.... once you get used to them!
I'll get there eventually. I've got about 100 days to figure it out before my journey to Southeast Asia - that's where I'll be putting the camera to full use!
