GoPro Black VS GoPro+ VS Sony Action Cam Exmor R VS GoPro Black 8mm Non Action Comparison Footage

The Original GoPro Hero Black VS The GoPro Hero Black modified with an 8mm by Ragecams VS the newest GoPro Hero+ VS the newest SonyAction Exmor R.

The usual minicam comparison features footage of giant redwoods flying past you on the bike trail or fighting crazy rapids in Colorado, but how about non-action shots? Granted, these cameras are designed for action, but having the luxury of constantly focused footage makes me think, why can’t you use actions cameras for non-action shots?
With GoPro on their third version and Sony on their second, new editions, updates, and accessories annually make it impossible for you to stay ahead of the Action Camera game. But if you keep waiting to get the “new thing”, you’ll spend a  lot of time not shooting. The good thing is they’re affordable and the resale value is pretty good if you change your mind within the year.
Fisheye lenses make action cams not the best choice to capture regular footage, but Ragecams have an awesome 5.4mm lens that gets the footage nice and flat. Let me know & I’ll send you some of the footage.
So which one do you think looks the best?
Thank you to one of our favorite Houston Bands, The Beans for use of their song, “Wanting You”. They’s be playing at FreePressHouston’s NewYears Bash

  1. I have been wanting the Go Pro for underwater shoots. Would be so fun…Love how you can see the side by side comparison here. I like the Go Pro 3 the best. Love your list of Photographers that inspire. Just found you on the Framed show. Really great work, so happy to have found you both:) I have always really enjoyed Hunter Leone’s work from Three Nails Photography. Not sure if he is on your list yet!

    • Lisa! We so appreciate your comment! We both read it and said it was our favorite blog comment ever. Right down to the referral for the next photographer on our list. I love Three Nails and hadn’t yet thought to put him on the list! Thank you for reminding me of someone who is very deserving of his success! Good luck to you on your underwater shoot quest!

  2. This design is spectacular! You certainly know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved
    to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job.
    I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.

    Too cool!
