I know, right? Most of the really good quality video I see of, say, people I watch on YouTube, comes from a dedicated video camera. They invest in it for their work, which makes sense.
Yeah, I still have my GoPro. It is super fun to use underwater, which has been the #1 thing I’ve used it for. We have gotten some cool action stuff with it too, like Rhett wearing it at baseball practice or while riding his bike. It’s a pretty basic model, but it was a great starting point so that I could explore whether I liked it or not. And I’m not opposed to spending money to get a better GoPro model. I have concerns because the company has been in trouble & has issues, so maybe I’ll look at another brand of action camera. And, that may solve my dilemma. If I want to get a really good “action” shot, maybe improve my GoPro and use that for those shots. Use my combo camera for my regular photos and for regular video.
I am looking forward to trying the manual photo settings. I think if I get a few basic rules of thumb down pat, I will be able to make use of it in manual mode. I like the option of being able to do so, even if I don’t actually do it very often 🙂
