A GoPro is literally the worst camera you could use for this - ultrawide lenses at a zoo - where you can’t get close to anything.

With most of the clips having 200% digital zoom on them, it’s surprising this produced a video that works - but it’s still effectively 1080p.

With travel not allowed from Australia at the time we were returning (and not really allowed from the rest of the world at all, at the time), the airport was very empty.



After MOTAT, we visit Auckland Zoo. While a GoPro is just about the worst camera to film at the zoo with, some heavy use of digital zoom was made, but I think I got away with it.

Keep watching for some bonus footage of a very empty Auckland airport on the way out…
