In a digital world where iPhones take 35mm quality photos and we’re compelled to instantly post every image we capture to Instagram or Tumblr or Facebook or Twitter or…all of the above, owning an actual camera almost seems like an afterthought. That’s until the groundbreaking GoPro Hero 3 came out and the world got a taste of what it can do. In the 10 years since his first GoPro prototype, creator Nick Woodman has gone from broke surfer to multibillionaire. The Hero 3 even won a 2013 Technology and Engineering Emmy® Award for making it possible to capture footage and perspectives that were out of reach before.
