Summary: Welcome to the world of HD video recording, in a super small package. I use this mostly to record my high performance boating experiences, and would say the quality of the video is outstanding. It has good battery life, and with a larger memory card, it will take more video than I need to shoot of any one event. The only slight weirdness, is that when using the suction cup mount, I have noticed what I would call, for lack of a better term, waviness in the video image.
Summary: Ive had this GoPro for close to a year now, and my family and I just love it. Since it includes easy to apply mounts for attaching the camera to lots of different helmets you can use it for plenty of diffrrent activities. Our family enjoys using it while ridding our dirt bikes, we have really gotten some awsome footage! As far as using it, I found it pretty easy to figure out.
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.
