Summary: Awsome action cam, depends on how you use it. for the quality of video, great value for your money. If you can stretch your budget a bit, get the hero2 $100 more, Same quality with more added features.
Summary: I purchased this GoPro HD Helmet Hero Camcorder for my son for Christmas. He has only gotten to use it a couple times, due to the lack of snow in our area, he is an avid snowmobile rider. He used it once on the hood of his truck & once on his helmet. I cannot believe the clarity & such a wide angle this camera captures. It is also, so easy to use. My husband & I cannot wait to borrow it from my son to take this to Sturgis, SD in August on our motorcycle.
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. I tried the TV out feature, and although it recognizes the tv jack is plugged in, I can't get any output.
Summary: Really nice camera!!!!!!=) great product with good quality!! i bought this product as a gift to my boyfriend who likes snowboarding, motorcross, carcross, this is a camera wich is easy to take with him, because of the small size. It had a really nice quality i HD.
Best camera so far for its use but bought it right before the new model

Summary: So far I love the GoPro. It has to be the best bang for the buck for filming HD movies and social activities. My only gripe is I purchase the GoPro and they released the GoPro HD 2 a few weeks later.
Best action sports camera available (well, not anymore)...

Summary: This is an incredible camera if you do any action sports and want to catch it on camera. It's surprisingly small (especially without the case), and light enough to be ignored in a lot of applications. I've used this while tubing behind a boat, water skiing and airchairing, jet skiing, shooting handguns/shotguns/rifles, SCUBA diving, hiking, swimming, cliff diving, traversing slot canyons, racing around the Nurburgring, and many other things.
Summary: Awesome camera! I am using it for snowboarding mainly... *insane quality of video during daylight conditions. *very easy to use during extreme sports , mounts easily on helmets or other flat surface. *Various modes available for different light conditions and locations.
Summary: After looking at the videos and reviews I decided to get this unit. I have seen that a few people have been disappointed in it but I blame that on either the user or a random defective part. So far this has exceeded my expectations. I got a 32gig card for it and when set to low quality(which is still good quality) I can get 2.3 hours of video from the camera. It writes 3gig files to the card, and then starts another one if it can.
