Review: You pull out your iPhone to check your Instagram and Facebook accounts, and you see the dreaded RED BATTERY! “No, not now, I still have that awesome selfie that HAS to make it online TONIGHT or no one will believe I made it to the top!” you scream at the top of your lungs.
The GoPro is a very tiny action “video” camera with a very tiny sensor and a very tiny lens. It will in no way compete with a $5,000 DSLR with an equally expensive $5,000 lens attached. It’s not even going to compete with a $500 DSLR/Lens Kit. It’s just not going to happen! And by understanding the limitations, will also set acceptable expectations.
It was an excellent and relaxing day meeting a few new kayakers with the Kayak Explores & More Meetup Group from Sarasota, FL. Thanks guys for an awesome morning!

While it is uncommon for wildlife to bother kayakers, it is indeed possible that you might have encounters that make for great photo opportunities! Here is a photo tour while kayaking the Hillsborough River.
