Well, still working on a new logo so I can start making more videos & branding social media accounts. I think my buddy Todd & I are nearly there with a design, so hopefully by the end of this next week I'll have something to share.
A lot of this past week consisted of regular day-to-day stuff, but there were definitely a few highlights. On the family end, my wife, Sara, wrapped up her last week of teaching... hooray for summer! We also made some progress on our upright piano restoration project. It is now in the house, but we still have a few pieces to paint & we're also getting it tuned this week. On Saturday we celebrated my very young mother's 50th birthday (that now grandmother of 3 had me in high school, for those trying to figure out the math haha).
For me, while the Hero5 Black has some incredible features, the literal point & shoot method of using the Session works so well, I haven't felt like owning the larger HERO5 Black would be much more beneficial for what I'm using it for. I would definitely recommend the Session to any families looking for a waterproof camera to take on vacations, & with the money you would save buying the Session over the regular HERO5 Black, I would buy accessories & a larger memory card. You can also find accessory bundles, but the bundles on Amazon can sometimes be a bit cheesy. I recommend buying individual accessories, that you think you'll actually use, of higher quality so you don't end up buying a cheap accessory that may break, resulting in you possibly losing your GoPro. One item I'm going to be looking into is something like this floating selfie stick. It seems like a very useful item for the Session while filming with kids in the water.
Considering the fact that I also own A LOT of cameras, for families that may only have one camera, or maybe have a nice DSLR but want to have one water proof action cam that can do it all, the Hero 5 Black, or maybe even a cheaper GoPro that only shoots 1080, will work for you. The best part about technology improving, is it lowers the price of older tech. You have to just find what works best for you.
That basically wraps it up, looking forward to this holiday week with family. The sun is out & The Tour de France is on :) Have a safe & Happy 4th everyone!
