I have had my GoPro HERO 3 now for many years and all-round its an OK action camera. I bought additional batteries because one battery lasts about 2hrs, so having more, lets me record for longer and the need to keep recharging the same battery becomes redundant. For any videographer, extra batteries is essential, especially when you do not want to miss a moment.

The GoPro HERO 3 is a HD camera, so it basically outputs to 1080p. Its sufficient for what I need it for and captures those shots which are most important. Its compact, lightweight and I carry a 32GB chip inside. I also carry with me a 20,000mAh Power Bank, in case I need to top up my batteries while out in the open or on the go.
