Outdoor Retailer: GoPro goes big with new mobile device app allowing remote control

Mobile device App from GoPro

While not a new piece of equipment, there was plenty of chatter at the Outdoor Retailer about a new app from GoPro which allows people to use mobile devices to view and share photos and videos shot on the HERO3 and HERO2 (with the Wi-Fi BacPac). The app allows people to use their phone or tablet (iOS or Android) as a remote control to changes camera settings, start and stop recording or shooting pictures. GoPro users can finally see what they are shooting live in a preview. No longer will you have to wait to download the memory card onto a computer. You can see video and photos while still in the slope, river or mountain. And, more importantly to some people, immediately post on various social media. A big leap forward for GoPro. Now if they can figure out the battery life issue. See a video of peopel using the app at http://youtu.be/uVf6LRFI740. Download Check it out here! http://gopro.com/software-app/gopro-app/

The Salt Lake Tribune is providing a look at some of the gear shown at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market last week at the Salt Palace Convention Center. Because the show is closed to the public, we thought we would share a peak with the public about gear coming to the outdoors world. Items will be featured on the Tribune's Hiking Utah and Fishing Utah blogs. An Outdoor Retailer package will also run in the Tribune.
