So, I got a Hero4 for Christmas. I’ve no idea what to do with it.
I mean, I get that it’s a camera. But it’s a little awkward as a snapshot camera… and frankly, for snapshots, I tend to just use my phone.
When I go to Disney parks (basically the main time I leave the house), I see people wandering all over with Hero cameras at the end of a stick. I’ve no idea why. I can’t imagine watching the resulting video. Ever.
When I’m traveling – say, out of the country – I definitely want to have photos. But, again… phone. Snapshots I know how to display and enjoy: I can print them out and hang them on the wall, and I’ve a room in my house full of those mementos. Video? I’ve no idea what to do with it afterwards.
To be fair, I was never a camcorder person, either. I once accumulated about six hours of content from a Jeep Jamboree, which I laboriously edited down to a wonderful, exciting, 30-minute video. That I watched, like, twice.
I’ve truly no idea what to do with this camera, or what to do with what it produces.
