Get Started on Your Holiday Shopping with @BestBuy

Date Tue, October 14 2014

Can you believe there’s less than 20 days left until Halloween? That means there’s less than 3 months to get all your holiday shopping done if you’re the type of person who waits until the last quarter of the year to do it. I know I am! That might seem like plenty of time, but we all know it’s not. The days and weeks will rush by, so there’s no better time to get your shopping on that now. This is especially true if you’re not sure what to get someone on your holiday shopping list!

Best Buy is all ready for you, however. Not only does the store have awesome gifts for everyone. Video games for the kids (and me), movies for the whole family, laptops for the business owner (like me), appliances for the home and smartphones for technophiles (do I really need to point out how this applies to me?). You could pretty much just give me a Best Buy gift card for any occasion and I’d be happy.

But it’s not all about me because I don’t have a strong interest in recording videos or snapping photos on anything other than my phone. If someone on your shopping list is an aspiring photog or videographer, Best Buy definitely has you covered, however. Specifically, the story carries GoPro cameras, which you may have heard of. These are durable, wearable cameras that allow you to record life in a hands-free mode. They’re perfect for folks who love the outdoors and want to create lasting video memories.

The three newest models are:

  • GoPro HERO4 Black — 2x more powerful process and 2x frame rate
  • GoPro HERO4 Silver — first GoPro with touch display; 1080p60 and 720p120 video
  • GoPro HERO — 1080p30 and 720p60 video; 5MP photos up to 5 fps

These new models come with WiFi capabilities, so sharing photos and videos is easier than ever. They film in wide angles and they work well in low-light conditions. With 12 megapixel sensors, they Hero4 series offers the clearest photos yet.

However, GoPro cameras have a bunch of specs that your typical point & shoot doesn’t. They’re designed to hold up, so the new lineup is waterproof. Speed is also important for a camera that’s in the middle of the camera, so GoPro has added twice the frame rate and a processor that’s 12 times faster to the GoPro Hero, and the Hero4 models are even better!

Best Buy also offers mounts, remotes and other accessories for you to get the most out of your GoPro camera.

If you’re interested in any of these devices, you can get a hands-on look at your local Best Buy, or you can head to to check out more specs!
