Preserve Memories with a GoPro® Camera

Videos on your smartphone are great. They're easily accessible, quick to upload to social media sites and a cinch to store and save. But what about the times you're at a major event, capturing a special memory, doing something so out of the ordinary, once-in-a-lifetime or worthwhile that a low-resolution phone video just won't do?


Enter the GoPro HERO® series, with super-high video and photo resolution for stunning quality. These cameras are even waterproof up to 131 feet, so your aquatic adventures don’t have to only reside in your memories. Plus, the built-in Wi-Fi lets you upload to your smartphone.


From your first skydiving trip to baby's first steps, that amazing night dive in the Caribbean or the first time your daughter rode a bike, you can capture it all with a GoPro and have incredibly well-preserved accounts of every moment in vivid detail.


At Verizon Wireless, you can choose among the GoPro HERO+ LCD, GoPro HERO4 Session, GoPro HERO4 Black Edition and the GoPro HERO4 Silver Edition. Then browse the collection of awesomely useful accessories.


Which GoPro is right for you? Let us help you decide:


Choose the GoPro HERO+ LCD if you need rugged durability when capturing life's adventures.

Super rugged, waterproof, Bluetooth®-enabled and a convenient touch display: all this makes the GoPro HERO+ LCD the ultimate all-in-one camera*.

HERO4 Session – rugged and waterproof, but lighter and smaller

If something a little more portable and lightweight is what you seek, then the HERO4 Session is the GoPro for you. It's 50 percent smaller and 40 percent lighter than the other HERO4 models, and its rugged, waterproof design eliminates the need for separate housing. It may be smaller and lighter, but it still delivers the professional image quality at 1080p60 video and 8MP photo capture. The design is simple for more quick and convenient access and usage, but the modes and settings are all there. And you can use the free GoPro App or Smart Remote to utilize all of the video and camera features. This camera is waterproof up to 33 feet and offers built-in WiFi and Bluetooth®. Other key camera specs of the HERO4 Session include Dual Mic System, Auto Image Rotation, Protune for Video, SuperView, Auto Low Light and HiLight Tag. Want to mount it on your helmet, chest or another unique perspective? No problem. The HERO4 Session is compatible with all GoPro mounts. You can even mount it upside down – the Auto Image Rotation automatically adjusts the capture orientation to right-side-up. Read more about the GoPro HERO4 Session here.
