Christmas Gadgets: Drone with Video Camera, GoPro Camera and Samsung Smartwatch

I case you haven't noticed, I enjoy making videos! Here is a link to my youtube channel: youtube.com/user/juicybeautyword.  I use a variety of cameras to make videos: my Motorola android phone, a Canon Vixla HD Camcorder and a GoPro Hero. All of them take decent videos.

GoPro Hero
The GoPro is the best of the 3. It's the newest camera we have. It's small so it's easy to travel with, it's easy to use, it's waterproof and takes super underwater pics and videos.

It also easily attaches to yourself for hands free action videoing. Take it with you when you go to Rick's Cafe in Negril, Jamaica. The Jamaicans will dive with your camera, for a price of course! My husband also loves to use the GoPro with a drone for beautiful aerial pics and videos. He recommends the Go Pro Hero 4 Silver because he likes the touch screen and the smart remote.


It's great for action videos!

Samsung Gear S5 Smartwatch
He is quite fond of his gadgets. Toys I call them. You should see his Christmas list. One item he wants the Samsung Gear S2 Smartwatch. Very futuristic. You can make phone calls, text, email, make playlists, etc. from your wrist. You can't take pic with it, though. It is 3G, bluetooth and is compatible with most android phones which is good since we are an android family here. He thinks it's cool that you can change the face of the watch to different styles. I can't wait to see him talk to his wrist! Hahaha


It's a cool watch!

Chroma Camera Drone
Now, he just arrived home from the hobby store and added another item to his Christmas list...a Chroma Camera Drone from Horizon Hobby. It does look pretty fabulous! Everything you need is in one box making it a perfect Christmas gift. Attach the propellers, charge it up, fly it and video outside on Christmas day. 

It includes a camera ( 4K or 1080P HD), a touch screen controller that shows you what you are videoing, a battery and a battery charger. The 4K camera has higher resolution creating a clearer picture. It has 30 minutes of flying time per charge. There are 4 versions of the Chroma. Two of them include the Chroma Camera. The other 2 models are designed to use with your own GoPro Camera. One has a 3-Axis Stabilized Gimbal for Go Pro Mount the other a fixed GoPro Mount. 

The prices range from $499.99 to $1349.99 depending on the model you choose. As always, I go to Amazon to shop for the best prices!


I can see why he wants it!

hope Santa has been working a second job this year!


Happy Shopping!
