Hey Everyone! I'm sure you have all heard of the camera brand, GoPro. For this week's reflective response, I will be talking about the GoPro Hero 4 and one of the promo videos they made. The GoPro Hero 4 is a new camera GoPro recently released. It's a small little camera that is very good for shooting in unique conditions and is portable because of it's small, lightweight size. It is waterproof, so it would be good for shooting underwater shots. In the promo video, there are multiple shots of an orca underwater, swimming. The Hero 4 shoots in 4k, which is an extremely sharp resolution. If you watch the video below, you can see the remarkable stunning shots it can take. It has mounts and accessories you attach to it to make it easier to hold. For example, there is a head strap where you can attach the GoPro there. Therefore, it would create a unique perspective, from the eyes of what you're seeing. Look at 0:57, you can really see in the eyes of that person, and what they're doing. It would be really useful if you wanted to shoot you riding your bike, or for example, climbing up an ice glacier, as seen in the video below. There are even mounts that can go onto helmets. Another mount they used in the video was one to put onto the side of your car. I've even seen some movies do this, in their behind the scenes footage. With that mount, you can get some really unique shots when you're driving. Another mount they have is kind of like a selfie-stick, which would be good in getting of yourself, or if you're vlogging, an example of that is at 0:24. GoPro also built in a time-lapse feature! Instead of having to manually edit a whole long lengthy video, in the camera itself there is an automatic time lapse feature! How cool is that! I really love the time lapses in this video, especially the one around 1 minute. It's really neat to see all these different angles, because of how versatile the GoPro can be. My absolute favorite shot from this video is at 1:13, where the GoPro follows through the whole crowd. Overall, I think this was a great promo video for the GoPro Hero 4, especially with the lively music synced to the shots. It really got me interested and excited, and is a great model for a commercial. The GoPro Hero 4 is a good camera I think made for sporting activities, underwater shots, or anything that really needs your own perspective, or again, like a vlog. I don't think I would use it just to get static shots, however, since I think it's best for shooting activities with a lot of movement. What are your thoughts on the Hero 4? Well, that is it for this week's reflective response! Thanks for reading! Bye!
