Wowie! My GoPro giveaway was so much fun! Thanks to all of you who entered to win a GoPro Camera. I wish I could send one to all of you. 🙂 Congrats to Jennifer G and her sons, Hunter & Trent in Summerfield, Florida as well as Alysha S in Brockton, MA. Can’t wait to see what “firsts” you create with your new GoPro Hero Cameras! That is why in this blog, I’ll talk about the basics of how does a GoPro camera work.

How Does GoPro Work?
So, how does a GoPro actually work? It’s one of those things you have to kind of play with and experience for yourself to see how it works. There are only three buttons, but there are TONS that a GoPro camera can do so… I get asked this question a lot: “But… how does it actually work?”.
So I thought I’d show you how mine works. I have a GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition. It’s not the newest GoPro on the market (I’ve had it since 2013).
You’ll have to watch the video to really get a feel for it. I go through what the buttons are, and how to go through the settings… it’s hard to explain in photos and words.
So if you’re thinking about getting a GoPro for your family but you’re not really sure, I hope this overview helps you get a grasp on the camera itself.
