GoPro HERO3 Silver Edition - A Popular Waterproof Camera with Video

GoPro cameras are extremely popular with all kinds of outdoor enthusiasts and get high ratings from their users. Athletes like these cameras because you can wear them on a helmet or armband, or you can mount them on a surfboard, handlebar or other object. They have a wide angle lens capable of capturing 170º of action and can take 1080p video or 11 megapixel photos at a rate of 10 photos per second.

The downside to this camera is that it's really designed more for point of view (POV) action video than for photos. It doesn't have a viewfinder, scene modes or other features you may expect in a compact camera. It's basically designed to be mounted, turned on and left alone while it captures you in action.
