GoPro: Telling Tales of Disappointment Since 2007.
GoPros: The little helmet cam that can. Unfortunately, all too often it is the little helmet cam that doesn’t. Not because the camera is incapable of delivering 1080 HD fish eye codecs, but because the user is an absolute idiot. Turn on, put on head, click button, ask friend if it’s on. Apparently, that last little step, that simple phrase that has been stigmatized in satirical videos for years, that safety net of confirmation from your most trustworthy ski buddies: “Is it on?” is the difference between the sickest video on the internet gaining you sponsors, unending adoration and chicks or the most awkward, disappointing collections of images that no one cares about.
If someone shreds pow and there is no GoPro to capture it, did it really happen?
