What Went Down At The Launch?
The launch of the GoPro Passport program was held at the idealistic location of Bandcamp, at the U-Tan Sea Resorts, off Gorai Beach. The two-day launch program saw GoPro enthusiasts and media personnel attending the event. Held as an overnight camping experience with a list of activities lined up, the event had us excited for more and got us completely hooked to the all-new GoPro Hero 6.
The event began with a 2 pm reporting time to the venue, on Friday, October 27th. Although, the Sherp himself only made it to the venue post 8 pm, owing to the long journey through a jam-packed city. The event began with a check-in to the campsite and a quick refreshener, where the attendees were briefed about the features and uses of the GoPro Hero 6 Black. Following an interesting and informative brief, everyone was escorted to a scenic bicycle ride along a 9km stretch of the fishing village of Uttan and Gorai. This allowed everyone to unleash their photography skills with the GoPro Hero 6 Black, while riding their way through some of the most scenic routes.
A starry and breezy evening followed after the return to the campsite, where the Sherp finally joined the proceedings. A crackling barbecue awaited us at Bandcamp, for the famished demons within us! The evening continued with the screening of the most interesting videos that were documented through the day, using the GoPro Hero 6 with QuikStories. The QuikStories feature lets you effortlessly create niche documentaries of your travel experiences. It is as simple as uploading the videos/photos you want, and watch QuikStories do the magic. Furthermore, you could connect your GoPro camera to the app on your phone, and QuikStories automatically picks the best of your media to give you a memorable video in the end complete with music and effects.

Following a fun screening, a wonderful music trio serenaded the crowd with a groovy setlist of songs. A scrumptious dinner was served that filled us up to our heart’s content. Forwarding into the proceedings of the night, a cozy campfire beckoned us for a jam session that went on well into the night before we went back to camp for the night.
The following morning, we set off on an early morning walk to witness the sun rise over the nearby docks. A quick breakfast back at the campsite refuelled us before bidding farewell to a wonderful two days of experiencing the GoPro Hero 6 and its features.
