We love wowing SABC3 viewers with the best of the good life, and we pride ourselves on broadcasting some of the most beautiful and breath taking images on South African screens. Our presenters' awesome adventures take them to the ends of the earth, and we're always looking for new ways to share their experiences with you.
The GoPro HD Hero video camera is a director's best friend is - it can go absolutely anywhere and get any shot and is the perfect complement to our large HD cameras. It's so small it can fit in the palm of your hand. It also has an interchangeable casing can go up to 60m underwater while still recording great sound. Then there's an array of accessories that allow it to be mounted on, or strapped to just about anything or anyone. And best of all - small doesn't mean dodgy low quality footage.
It shoots professional quality 1080p / 960p / 720p HD resolutions at 30 and 60 frames per second (60 fps in 720p), and can record up to 2.5 hours on a single charge and up to 9 hours total on a 32GB SD card (not included). It also takes stills and can shoot automatic 5 megapixel photos at 2/5/10/30 and 60 second during your activity, hands free. Press the shutter button once at the start of your activity and record up to 2.5 hours of poster-print quality photos - great for funky action sequences.
Our GoPro brought you Lyndall Jarvis windsurfing and snorkelling in the Maldives, Aiden surfing with Jordy Smith, and Schalk Brits trying his hand at sand boarding on some of South Africa's best dunes. And coming soon on Top Billing - catch Janez' flying through tree-tops in Cuba, getting behind the wheel of a luxury Bently, and Lorna riding the Shotover Jet in New Zealand!
