14 Amazing Photos Shot With A GoPro Camera

GoPro camera on helmet

When you think of GoPro, you think of all the amazing videos it can capture.

That’s because the GoPro is light and portable, and is a cheap alternative to buying or renting expensive video equipment.

But the GoPro Hero3+ also takes photos in 5-, 7-, and 12-megapixel resolutions. There’s a burst-shooting mode, so you can take up to 30 photos in 1 second, and there’s even a time-lapse mode.

All that means is that you can get some very cool shots using the GoPro.
