A compact camera not only saves your luggage space but also help you to capture your wonderful and memorable moment. GoPro has been the most popular compact camera for photography and videography mostly for leisure or adventure activities due to its size and weight. It has often being compared with other compact action cameras. But still, GoPro stand out among YI 4K Action Camera, Sony FDR-X3000R or SJCAM SJ7 Star as they were the first compact very high quality HD cameras.

GoPro camera is a compact action camera with best qualities of point-and-shoots and camcorder and packs them into a rugged frame that’s smaller, waterproof, and virtually indestructible. It is very portable that can be easily fitted into pocket. With GoPro app or QuikStories, users are able to view in real time, download and transform your adventures into awesome videos by connecting the camera to Andriod or IOS devices. GoPro cameras are supported by microSD memory card, hence by using GoPro it saves you from burning battery and memory of your devices for photography or videography.

The price of a newer version Gopro is generally higher than the older and it is worth noticing that the prices of Gopro drops quite a lot over time since it first released to the market. Because of such significant depreciation effect, a Rent Calculator will help you to decide whether it’s worthy to buy a new version of Gopro. If you don’t mind to use an used Gopro, rental is a very good option or you may consider buying it as used condition via P-P platform such as Carousell. However, it is quite risky to buy an used Gopro as it usually comes with limited or no warranty. Rental sounds like a better option? The article “Why should you rent a travel item instead of purchasing/owning it?” has outlined the general advantages of rental.
