With today's course, we're going to be shooting with all types of GoPros. I even have a GoPro 1, which we're treating as a disposable camera and we're going to tape it underneath the board. But we're using the GoPro White, Silver and Black, both a 3 and a 3 plus, so you'll see different cameras in action. All I assume is that you have a GoPro, or you're already planning on buying one soon, and you're getting an idea of what the different cameras could pull off. You're going to notice that we have a ton of equipment. For my day job, I run a video production company. So we've got lots of tools and toys.
Some of the stuff that we're going to use today is total top end pro gear. This is the stuff that you'll see on action sports coverage on TV, or some of the real good aggressive filmmakers are using. But don't worry, we're also some super affordable stuff too. Things you can pickup off of an online retailer. I want you see how you can use a wide range of equipment to get results. We're going to walk you through what the different equipment does and really show you how to get the most from it. But don't run out and buy a bunch of gear right away. Watch what we do with it, and then slowly invest in your own equipment package, adding a piece here at a time so that you really try it out and get the most out of that gear.
