Why Does GoPro Weight Matter?

There are a few reasons to be concerned about the weight of your GoPro.

If you are trying to decide between a GoPro or an alternative weight is a worthy consideration. And even if choosing between the different models – a weight difference can matter – depending on the application.

Some cameras can be more than double the weight of other GoPros. This matters if you are mounting it on your helmet or backpack. Or at the end of a long selfie stick.

Is lighter always better? It depends. Sometimes a heavier camera will mean that you have a larger, longer lasting battery. But generally speaking, I prefer a lighter unit.

GoPro cameras have a small image sensor size helping keep them small and lightweight.
