The poor grip of a phone tends to make it shaky.

The GoPro is designed for helmet mounting and things, so for hand held video, the camcorder style may be better, certainly designed for more comfortable holding, the "pistol grip" such as https://uk.webuy.com/product.php?sku=SDVCPANHXDC2B#.WObWL7pFzcs
Or the ones that strap across the palm of the hand such as https://uk.webuy.com/product.php?sku=SDVCPANSDRS70A#.WObWu7pFzcs
Just for example

Why not use your phone? A GoPro is more a action camera for strapping to your head whilst trying to kill yourself doing "sports".

You have to first decide your budget and quality requirements.. I bet you could get a none HD camcorder for a couple of hundred. But a 4K camera with better sound recording, image stabilisation etc will possibly set you back a minimum of £1500.

See Here for an example..

As stated above would a mobile phone not meet your requirements?

Thank yo for your replies,
I just want to have less shaky videos, my phone makes okay videos but often very frustrating results. The big questions here is if I will carry video device with me when the "moments" are there? What is your experience?

A lot of "youtubers" or "vloggers" actually use good quality photography cameras that have above average to excellent HD video capabilities. I'd say don't just be looking for a said Video camera
