From time to time, we hear inspiring stories of lost cameras that crossed countries and seas and took years to be reunited with their owners. This interesting story comes from cyclist Aaron Chase, who found a lost GoPro while riding his bike. Four years later, Aaron found the owners and gave them back their memories.
GoPros are great to capture death defying stunts and extreme sports. But that’s not all they’re good for. Recording wildlife is another activity that’s high up on their list of uses. Their tough design allows them to easily withstand the elements. It also helps to fend off animal curiosity, and there are a whole lot of curious animals out there. Very curious. And some very confused.
This particular video shows a seagull taking a rather keen interest in one person’s GoPro while they were feeding it in the Cies Islands, Spain. Deciding that the GoPro (or should that be GullPro) would make an interesting meal, the gull picked up and took off. After a brief circling of the area, the gull did finally come into land, allowing the owner to get their camera back.
This year has been tough on GoPro. Shortly after they had to recall their Karma drones, GoPro is shrinking. They recently announced that they are about to cut 15% of their overall workforce in order to cut operational costs. The company’s been operating at a loss and they decided to take radical measures to get back on track. A few days after this announcement, GoPro launched a new product for HERO5 and HERO4 users.
