Summary: I gave this 4 stars because it's the standard GoPro 3 black, not the 3+. I really think GoPro should have fixed the issues with battery and wireless before releasing. When I bought it I thought I got a good deal but did not realize that the 3+ was out, which solved those issues.
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). I any case, he loved it, but hated the helmet mount system -- went out and bought a mount for his handlebars and literally on the first ride-- it started bouncing and rattling and broke off-- caroming off the highway.
Lot of technology in a very small and well priced package.

Summary: Excellent camera ...... main challenge is coping with wind noise. Wanted the camera for recording while motor cycling primarily. It could do with having a rear or side LED visible from behind to show when recording - the one on front is not easy enough to always be seen. Video quality is very good.
Summary: This product is a very good invention. Should not be afraid to report the camera when I'm in nature, skiing or beach. This makes excellent recordings. The use is not easy because there are two buttons and small display of the setting. But there are wide-angle lens, enough to handle the difficult conditions. I think the expensive retail price of $ 270, but I bought the $ 180 price was good, but I also think a bit expensive.
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. Sometimes however after being Skiing and then going into the Ski lodge, you can hardly make out anyone once inside. It is really fantatastic for hands free video.
Summary: Length:: 0:44 Mins The gopro is an awesome camcorder if you use it for what it's made for...which is action sports. I bought this for my new paintball business and have ended up using it for many things. I have attached it to dune buggies, taken it deep sea fishing, snorkeling, on roller coasters and skydiving. The gopro has allowed me to capture all these events and share them.
Summary: bought camera to film outdoor fishing trips and high school sports. well, have used it now and am pretty well pleased with it's results. be sure to read instrutions (twice).theres alot to learn, so its best to get it out and try all the setting and such. the camera takes stunning video and the sound is ok not perfect but good enough.i would recomend it to any one to use outdoors or in. lots of extras for camera makes for easy use.
Summary: These are great little super rugged camera's, but don't expect a whole lot of picture quality out of this thing. Its great for what it is but if you need high quality video then look elsewhere. However plan on spending a LOT more money for something as small and rugged as this little guy. This thing is a great value!
This product has matched my expectations: small and well-thinked!

Summary: Used to capture paragliding, quad racing, or mountain biking. Great value for the money. Small gear, great mounts, great housing. Image quality can still be improved, but it is still one of the best at the moment.
