Alright so I am looking to get a GoPro but I am having trouble figuring out which one I want to get for what I’m using it for. I plan on using the GoPro while snowboarding, skiing, during soccer practice, swimming, and basically any activity you can think of.
The price is not really an issue. I just want to know what would be the best choice for my purchase.
