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: There isn't much that already hasn't been said about this camera and it's system. It is well known and almost a standard in reality and sport TV and video. This system is great. The mount, the case, the quality of the pieces is great.
Summary: I had purchased a gopro because it was cheap on overstock. which worked great and did what it supposed to do but then I decided I wanted to go 3D. That's when I ran into 2 bad gopro units from Sport Chalet.
Like the 1080p in daylight, but definitely requires good lighting
20 July 2011
Summary: This is a unique little camera and I like the idea. The 1080p video format is the biggest selling point. The image quality is quite nice in daylight. The colors look pretty good and fairly good saturation. The footage captured from a helmet cam is shakier than what you see on the web site.
Summary: First let me say that this product is definitely a step in the right direction with a fairly high quality picture and several mounting setups. For most people this is a good choice. Still, I returned mine to the manufacturer. I bought directly on their web site which has a 30 day return policy.
Summary: I had to return my GoPro after only a few recordings, after a couple weeks it developed some strange electrical problem. It began after the camera apparently shorted out when I connected it to my laptop via USB, which is something Ive never seen before.
Summary: Drift HD - Contour Roam - Go Pro Hero2 HD - I Have owned all three of these but have been disappointed. I really can't understand how they can justify these being Hi Definition when the video quality is not crisp in any of them.
