Waterslide Compilation with the GoPro

Last month I got a GoPro HD Hero 2 for my birthday. It wasn’t until today that I was able to test it. We went to St. George for a family vacation and I was very excited to hang out in the pool with my kids and test my GoPro. But the 44-degree temperature and the continuous rain, the hotel pool wasn’t an option.

So we headed to the Washington City Community Center and hung out in their aquatic center for a few hours. It made me nervous to have the camera in the water, but once I got over that, I tested out various modes and settings – all in preparation for my wife and my trip to Hawaii next month.

The WCCC had a large water slide, but my daughter was pretty nervous to ride it. We went up to the top, and had to take the walk-of-shame back down when she changed her mind. But a little later, she wanted to try again. So up we went – and this time, it was a go. You can watch the video on my Facebook page.

The next time we went down the waterslide, I set my GoPro to take 1 photo every 2 seconds. So from the top to the bottom, we ended up with 20 photos that fit nicely into this compilation.

Needless to say, we all had a lot of fun, and the waterslide was everyone’s favorite part.
