We may not be experts, but we know one thing for sure: Every parent wants to capture the most precious moments of their child’s life, from first steps and silly smiles to family vacations and outdoor adventures. But handing your kids a fancy SLR camera or expensive smartphone can be a bit nerve wracking, especially with younger kids.
This is where GoPro comes in. GoPro cameras are small, durable and mountable, so they can go nearly everywhere your kids go. But what makes GoPro unique is how it captures the high-quality video and photos in any kid-tastic scenario.
In other words, they’re the perfect solution for parents who want to find a safe, reliable recording device to immortalize the most magical moments of their children’s lives without fretting over spilled camera gear.
Beyond packing serious power into its tiny frame—HERO11, HERO10 and HERO9 Black are just 2.7 x 2.1 inches and weigh 153 and 158 grams, respectively—GoPro features several amazing benefits that make it the ideal action camera for kids on an adventure.
The Chesty, for example, is great for capturing hands-free photos and videos of your child enjoy their favorite activities, like learning to ride a bike or playing in the backyard. Just strap it on, hit record and enjoy your kiddo!
PRO TIP: You can also pull high-resolution, print-quality still images from high-resolution video using the GoPro Quik app.
The question is, how will your kid use their GoPro?
Some kids are just naturally fearless on their bike, and once they get going, everything must be faster. While safety is paramount (wear your helmets!), if your child is vying to be the next X Games gold medalist check out the following:
PRO TIP: If you’re using MAX to shoot 360 content, add some space between the mounting point and the camera using a Gooseneck. This will create the “where’s the camera?!” experience.
In the pool or at the beach, GoPro is already waterproof up to 33 feet, but it can go much deeper with the right equipment.
PRO TIP: Heat up the adhesive on mounts like the Surfboard and Helmet mounts before adhering to toys and allow them to dry overnight before testing them out. This allows the adhesive to stick to its strongest potential.
Does your kid teach you about technology? Are they into drones, vlogging or editing video post-production? Here is the latest cool tech from GoPro to help them do that to an entirely new level.
You can’t go wrong with a GoPro for the aspiring videographer in your family.
