"It’s small. It looks like a toy. But it’s one powerful piece of awesome technology. Created by Nick Woodman, who was just trying to make better surf videos, the GoPro camera (which has been around for years in different incarnations) has transformed into a mainstream technology that is changing the way we see the world. But this was a breakthrough year. Throughout 2012, GoPro was used in major motion pictures, commercials, music videos and even space jumps to capture images never before possible. And with the newest upgraded version, you can now shoot in a ProTunes setting (24fps/more dynamic color range) and control of up to 50 cameras on a single remote. Get set for crazy rigs and lots of innovation by eager filmmakers out there this coming year. The world has never looked so cool."
