Diana Loves Her GoPro,

the cameras are small and tough,

 well that have to be, when you think of the number of people that use them in all manner of extreme sports where they can be dropped, hit or immersed in water, but how tough is tough? 

Erik Storm, owner and lead guide of Kilauea EcoGuides in Hawaii, found out when his GoPro was engulfed in lava,

in his words, “I was telling a story when the molten lava completely engulfed my GoPro (with housing on) and it caught on fire, I used a geology rock hammer to pull it out of the lava and thought it was a total loss" after getting back home, Storm hammered the cooled rock off the GoPro housing, when he noticed that the Wi-Fi light on the camera within was still blinking, then he pulled the SD card out of the camera, he found that the footage was still intact, “The camera even still worked although not a well as it did before,” Storm says, “Truly amazing it survived!” what a great piece of publicity for GoPro, I wonder if they gave him a new one as a thank you for the free publicity?
