Shooting with a GoPro allows you to mount it almost anywhere; its small size lets you really push the envelope when capturing your life experiences. Join Robbie and me as we get the GoPro flying with a quadcopter. We’ll walk through important steps on protecting a GoPro before it takes off, operating the quadcopter, and ensuring a smooth flight. Things could get a bit turbulent as you learn how to fly your camera, but the more you practice, the easier it becomes. Enjoy the ride!

From its origins as a surf camera to its current incarnation as a flexible tool for any project that needs a small, durable, and capable camera, GoPro has become synonymous with go anywhere, “get the shot no matter what” productions.
Smaller than your fist and providing endless mounting options, GoPro cameras allow you to get shots you never thought were possible—especially where larger, more expensive cameras won’t work.
In this week’s episode, we’ll take a look at the iconic GoPro camera and how it can become even more flexible with different mounts, and the GoPro App, which allows you to remotely control your GoPro from mobile devices.

When it comes to capturing great images, exposure is critical. Under- or overexpose your shot and you lose precious details. But setting the proper exposure isn’t easy; your light may move behind a cloud, or change over time. When shooting video, exposure requires an almost scientific understanding of light.
