Camera Upgrade – GoPro Hero 8 – Bicycle Trails – McIntosh Lake Longmont CO

URL to Video above in case the player does not show.

An update on things, plus a camera upgrade to the GoPro Hero 8.  So far I love the camera.  Now that the camera has been out on the market for a little while there are some really good deals out there.  We picked up the bundle 30% off the discounted sale price plus wikibuy gave us a $25 credit for a Walmart gift card.  (Wikibuy  has other stores to choose from too.)

Wikibuy is a capital one extension for your browser.  It will add coupons and find great deals. If you are looking for a new GoPro, I would suggest getting on the GoPro mailing list as well because sometimes they throw special codes and deals at you.

Picked up the GoPro Hero 8 bundle with shorty grip, head strap, SD card, Helmet mount and extra battery.  Loving the camera so far but need to work out the audio.

GoPro Hero 8 bundle

Will get the Media Mod to add a mic for better sound.  Goes for around $79, hate to have to spend more money on the camera but the accessories can be the fun of it.

Hero 8 does a great job with sound in certain situations but I noticed when you are behind the camera it gets lost a little.  Could be me as I work with and get used to the camera.

Also in the video a little tour of our garden, Rolling Thunder Cabin On Wheels Docking Station and a bike ride over to our neighborhood McIntosh Lake in NW Longmont, Boulder County Colorado.  

Hope you enjoy the beautiful Colorado scenery.

Plus in the video I share with you a few of my new fine art night images.
