Review: When I first heard about the GTM, my initial thoughts were, this was a device that would allow me to get text messages out to the world when I didn’t have any cell service.
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.
I have been asked many times how I am getting so much runtime out of my GoPro cameras, so I put together a post on how I get up to 4 hours of runtime w/o having to swap batteries.
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.
