Shop Amazon Quick Thoughts - Gopro continues to dominate the market and now offer a camera at every price point. The number of GoPro's I have seen tourists using for selfies and general photography is regrettable. They make good action cameras but are not the best for general photography and I will be talking more about a really sweet alternative soon - the Olympus TG-860 that I used in Greece.
