Commercial video boaters - use GoPro's? 1 year, 11 months ago #32793

Just wondered if video kayakers working with rafting companys film the clients using GoPro's or equivalents, these days, to make CD's to sell to the rafters? - instead of using a video camera thats stored in your kayak?
Thanks!

It really depends on the job. For most of the raft trips I find the hand held cameras to be superior. I like being able to use the view finder, zoom, and control the focus of the shot. If other kayakers hire me to join their group and document a project the GoPro really gives a 'personal experience' feel to the video.

Ultimately, I like using both. I get more footage with the GoPro, but the handheld offers more control.
