Prior to GoPro, it was very difficult for anyone to capture content of themselves doing anything without having the help of someone else to film them. GoPro has enabled a new era of self-documentation whereby people can now easily wear or mount miniature ultra wide-angle GoPro cameras to record themselves doing just about anything, anywhere. The result is a surge of immersive user-generated and professional content made possible by the versatility and affordability of GoPro's cameras and accessories. An average of three GoPro "tagged" videos are uploaded to YouTube every minute, and GoPro is used by the world's leading production companies to help produce some of today's most engaging film and television content.
