New to Gopro

I’m hoping to buy a GoPro, but need some advice. I would use it on holidays for video and photos. I need a model where I can have a spare battery. Do I go for the GoPro Hero 2018, Gopro Hero 5, Hero 6 or Hero 7 ? 

Im not into extreme sports, I’d like a good quality video and photos.... any advise please ?

Hi @jacqueline5171,

 

I would suggest to use HERO7 Silver or Black. 

 

Silver is very user friendly and easy to use. 

But if you need a very good quality camera that can be used as all around camera I can suggest HERO7 Black. 

 

Regards,

-Jay

I’m in the UK and all the GoPro Hero 7’s are more expensive than the Hero 6. Also the Silver and White 7 have a built in battery which I don’t want.

Hi @jacqueline5171

 

A gimbal is a pivoted support that allows the rotation of an object about a single axis.

A camera gimbal helps stabilize videos.

 

You may also check GoPro's Karma Grip features.

 

Thanks!
