ESPN and Circle Track on “How to GoPro”

GoPro HD HERO Cameras Used to Propel Up and Comers

HALF MOON BAY, CA (July 20, 2011) – Social media and video sharing websites have created new opportunities for people to go beyond their 15 minutes of fame and to ‘go pro’ at what they love. Of course we at GoPro love to see how people are using the HD HERO to achieve this and are stoked to read about these stories in places like ESPN. Two recent ESPN articles look at how freeskier Andrew Whiteford secured himself sponsorships through his tight and clean GoPro edits as well as how snowboard park extraordinaire, Tim Humphreys, landed his sponsors in the article “Self-Made Man.” Along these same lines, Circle Track magazine put the HD HERO on their cover with an accompanying title “Your New PR Agent” – the article is an in depth review of the HD Motorsports HERO and also hits upon how circle track drivers can use the in-car videos to impress potential sponsors.

Mark Burnett, five-time Emmy award winner and avid GoPro customer, said in a previous statement, "We have used GoPro cameras in some of our biggest productions, like Survivor and The Bible. GoPro has allowed us to capture and share fascinating new perspectives that previously weren’t possible or were too costly, which in the end makes for better story telling. We are always excited to see what GoPro is working on next."

"In a world of smartphones and increasingly small cameras, GoPro is still the film fans device of choice and the rugged gadget that will launch the careers of many future directors. If in doubt, check out the home made rocket that took a GoPro to space or the shark footage, both on YouTube." - T3 Award for the GoPro HERO3

"Despite a lot of newcomers in the field, GoPro is still the leader in adventure cameras. The new Hero3 Black manages to pack an f/2.8 wide-angle lens, a 12-megapixel sensor, and the power to shoot 30 still frames per second into a camera body that’s smaller than a bar of soap" – Outside Magazine "Gear of the Year" 2013
