GoPro is an American manufacturer of action cameras, and developer of software of the app which connects to the cameras.   Gopro was founded in 2002, by Nick Woodman who got the idea when he came back from a surfing trip to Australia. He wanted to capture better quality action photos as he couldn’t come close enough to the action with normal cameras, and special action cameras was extremely highly priced.   Woodman and his friends wanted to “Go pro”, and that’s there the name came from, as being filmed surfing was the only way to become a pro surfer.   I think the cameras look graet, are easy to use and captures great quality pictures. The camera is also very practical because of the small size, and its long lasting/robust.
