The GoPro for Windows Phone will also give you access to the company’s Photo of the Day & Video of the Day channels to keep you updated with other GoPro users on the network. GoPro’s HD HERO3® and HD HERO2® cameras are compatible with the app, and can be remotely controlled via your Windows Phone 8 device. Additionally, if you have a Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8 device, the app allows for “Picture-in-Picture functionality”, whereby your phone’s camera view can be overlaid on top of the GoPro live view and take photos that are saved to your device’s camera roll.
The app’s description goes on to outline the compatibility requirements:[pullquote align=”left”] The GoPro App is compatible with Nokia Lumia 920, Nokia Lumia 820, HTC 8X and similar Windows Phone 8 devices that have at least 1GB RAM. Requires Windows Phone 8. [/pullquote]
Widely used by professionals and hobbyists, GoPro cameras are often used to film in extreme situations, mounted on helmets, handlebars and so on. The newest iteration of the camera is the HD HERO3®, capable of capturing digital video up to 4K and 2.7K resolution. Despite the impressive 4K shooting ability, frame rate is reduced to 15fps on this setting.
