Will Tiny GoPro Cameras Replace Your Obnoxious Phone at Concerts?
PHILADELPHIA - It's rare to find someone at a concert who will keep their smartphone buried in their pockets or purses for the entirety of the show, seeing as we're essentially Generation Hold Your Camera Phone Up At Concerts Instead of Paying Full Attention. To avoid pissing off people, some tech-savvy patrons at the Made in America festival are using tiny GoPro cameras, which have grown in popularity over the past few years. Though not entirely unobtrusive, Delaware natives Lily Dubroff, 17, and James Magnani, 18, put their stick-mounted GoPro to the test during DJ Cassidy's midday show at the Liberty Stage at Benjamin Franklin Parkway. "The GoPro has this awesome wide-angle camera that helps me capture the entire audience and whole stage," Dubroff told Mashable. "It makes everything look so much cooler. It's so tiny, so no one really notices it that much." Like smartphones, the GoPro allows Dubroff to instantly upload her videos and photos to social networks as long as Bluetooth is available. While there's no stopping people from pulling out their cameras to capture a visual keepsake of their concert experience, GoPro cameras may eventually alleviate the two-handed fumbling of the smartphone for some music fans.
