Great product, will use for a long time before I upgrade to a new one
2 February 2014
Summary: I only have one issue with it, the fact that there is no port on the back for a back pack. Because of this I have no ability to upgrade it. Other than that, its a great camera! use it for rock climbing and mountain biking. I have yet to use the water proof part but that will come in the spring when I start kayaking again!
Summary: It's a very cool wearable cam, actually i just found one down side: It doesn't work for night recording, it's too dark, and lights seems brighter. The sound is ok, but you can't expect a good quality sound and basically is because of the housing, If I doesn't name anything else, is because works awesome. And if you have some extra money, go for the new gopro 3 black edition.
Nice robust HD video camera. V1 at a good price at the moment

Summary: The original GoPro HD Hero (V1) is at a sweet spot for price as stores are trying to clear the old version for the new V2. Expect to pay around $230AUD or less including postage for a new HD Hero V1. Also make the effort to ask the seller if the GoPro they are selling really is V1 or V2 as I have caught out a few sellers selecting V2 specs and placing them on their V1 description.
Summary: I haven't got a lot of use out of this camera yet but from the little bit that I have done I am more than impressed. I will definitely be buying more accessories in the future. The only problem is, which ones?
Excerpt: It can be easily charged by computer and holds its charge for a bit less than three hours, which is perfect for going out the skateboard or snowboard for a couple hours. The camera caught my interest when i saw how good the quality is from my friend’s camera and also the fact it can be used in almost any conditions. I would definitely recomend this camera to any one that if looking for a camera for filming actions sports at a great quality at low cost.
Summary: the camera will be in my hand by mid Sept. 2011 - as it will be arrived with my son who will come to visit from the US pls. contact me later on as I plan to install the GoPro960 once close to a sun bird fedding place I built in my garden and also I will install it on a scale R/C airplane and let it make airobatics Thanks
