Being invited to the launch experience of the GoPro Hero 3+ by Positive Dialogue and Omnico, was gift enough. A day that ignited the adrenaline junkie in me with ten activities that we needed completion in order to enter the draw to win one of these coveted cameras. Amongst them archery, mountain biking, land yachting, racing cars, more. Entertained from start to finish, it really was an incredible day shared with many of the World of Heroes legends.
Among the excitement, I managed a lovely conversation with the host of the day, who offered The Incidental Tourist a Hero 3+ to trial for a few months. With my free diving course, shark diving and gorilla trekking in mind, it seemed a perfect match.
In no time at all I was completely equipped to be a World of Heroes #TravelHero with not only this incredibly powerful Hero 3+, but waterproof casings, extra batteries, head and body mounts, viewing screen, more. I’m learning how to maximise on its powerful abilities, working with their incredibly good editing software and ever learning.
Yes – you do NEED one! You really really do.
I’ve had mine with me constantly since it arrived. There are a few videos that I will share, with many more from my upcoming trip to Rwanda and Uganda to follow. Such excitement!
Actually, don’t tell my loyal Canon DSLR, but between my iPhone and GoPro. I’m able to travel much lighter these days without compromising on quality. Thank you Omnico and World of Heroes for making me feel like just that, a Travel Hero.
