So, I’m not a travel blogger at all. Like, not even remotely (see what I did there? #haha). But when the folks over at Veedyou asked for my opinion on GoPro Tips for traveling, I said “SURE!” You can click on the infographic below to get the entire list of tips, but I’ll give you a spoiler on my tip first off: learn how to use your GoPro before traveling with it!
If I were to add just one more, it’s making sure you have the 5 basic GoPro accessories EVERY GoPro user needs (especially if you’re new to this!).
They actually asked a bunch of people, so here’s a snippet from Christian and the gang, plus and an infographic:
Shooting photos or videos with a GoPro is pretty straightforward apparently. The camera literally has just 2 physical buttons so how hard can it be? Well, even though the camera does a great job at using
the right settings most of the times, there are quite a few tips and tricks that will make your GoPro videos stand out from the crowd.
Over at Veedyou over half of the orders we handle are GoPro video editing services and me personally, I must have zapped through hundreds of hours of GoPro footage. I have come across amazing shoots, I’ll give you that, but most of the times we get really bad looking footage: it’s very shaky, the subject is not in the shoot or the lighting is really poor and the colors are off.
And the blunt truth is that the quality of the final video edit is going to depend a whole lot on the quality of the original footage. So no matter how skilled the video editor is, the end result will be mediocre, to say the least.
So, in an attempt to help everyone out there shoot better GoPro videos, we’ve reached out to some of the most passionate GoPro users and asked them two questions:
- What are your top tips to get the most out of a GoPro camera?
- Which GoPro accessories should I buy for traveling?
Here’s what we got back.
