GoPro brings an affordable action camera to adrenaline enthusiasts since 2002. Nick Woodman started GoPro after failing to record and photograph extreme sports from the athlete's point of view, missing the best shots. While selling shells out of his VW, Woodman started to design his first wrist strap. He then realized he would have to create the strap, case, and camera, giving birth to GoPro.
In the beginning, you could use your GoPro case attached to your wrist with any action camera. After two years of tests, GoPro came out with its first 35mm film camera. GoPro further changed the market in 2006 after introducing the first Digital Hero. What once was Woodman selling shells out of his VW turned into one of the best action cameras in the world.
