GoPro Hero7 Black
GoPro’s newest wearable video camera is waterproof down to 33 feet, and guaranteed fall resistant, so you can drop it in the snow, step on it with your skis or drop it down a 1,000 foot vertical. You’ll still have a camera to record all your master jumps and spins because this device is as tough as they come. Along with its always reliable durability, GoPro has greatly improved the camera’s video quality so that the picture remains stable against high impact movement, like wobbles and sudden jolts. Another addition to the Hero7 is built in voice communication. 16 different voice commands allow the wearer to take photos or videos right in the moment, so you’ll never miss the one great shot. In an upgrade from the Hero 6, now users can live stream their adventures and share them with loved ones! For the same $399 as the Hero6, this gadget is a steal.
