I hate GoPro with a passion that runs deeper than you could ever imagine. I’m currently on my 5th replacement Hero 4 with no end in sight to the horrible customer service. As such, I’m really pulling for an alternative. And word on the street is that this Sony delivers on the promise.
I have a real problem with collecting cameras. My next one is ALWAYS the answer… and always my last. Right now, my focus is on a legend – the Hasselblad 500. For those not in the know, it’s a medium format camera that is completely modular allowing not only interchangeable lenses, but viewfinders, film backs, cranks, and other accessories as well. In fact, if you bought a Hasselblad C camera body in 1957 you could still be shooting with that camera today using a $12k digital back and all the best lenses from Carl Zeiss. The system is simply a marvel of design and engineering.
And I want one. It’s the answer to all my dreams. It’s all I need. Honest.
This one on eBay is tempting simply because that case is just too charming. But, I don’t buy cameras on eBay.
