Summary: Unit kept failing. Didn't hold a charge and overall. Would freeze. Removed battery. Upgraded firmware to no avail. Sent unit back. Buyer beware. Go Pro makes great ads and promo videos, but their quality is poor.
Summary: I bought this back in november 2011. It worked well and I used it a few times (under 10) and had no issues. I just came back from vacation where I went zip lining and it was probably the first time I actually had something good to record. Recorded 2 videos and everything was going great.
Summary: GoPro doesn't deserve any stars as to me rating their product!!! Due to GoPro's extremely poor customer service, I have returned both the Silver and Black edition...GoPro really needs to work on their customer service.
Summary: This seller on Amazon was fine, and I received the product in a timely manner - but the camera was defective. Hence, I've been in a month long saga with GoPro customer service to get them to replace the camera, which even they said was just a defective part.
Camera is great-- the accessory mount we bought is a zero

Summary: The camera is great! My hubby is a avid cyclist averaging 150 miles a week over 2-3 rides. He had been talking about getting one of these and I bought it for his birthday so he could use it for a big ride "The Breathless Agony" (crazy).
Summary: So you know what the Hero is all about, mounting an indestructable camera in weird places to film you doing fun stuff. Personally, I use it for auto racing, snorkling, mountain biking, ski/snowboarding, etc. The Hero does all of that great, but the video quality is poor.
Summary: This is a terrific piece of kit. GoPro camera is good although does not take nearly as good videos as my Canon S95 digital camera. Indoors low light video perfornce is very poor, although it's not really intended for that anyway.
Summary: So far the GoPro has been easy enough to capture video on, the still pictures are not very good, but considering the resolution it'll work. The big problem with GoPro in general is that it's not easy to play back in it's original format on normal computers.
Summary: We are adventure type people and when we were expecting our first baby- we knew we wanted a video camera. A tight budget prompted us to look at versatile video cameras to fit our outdoor fun (canoeing, kayaking, hiking, rock climbing) but also video a baby. While it does not have a zoom (duh!
