Excerpt: The Good: WOW! was the first thing i said when i plugged this things into my computer on saw the quality of my video. When i opened that box I couldn’t wait to try out every single mount in that box. Aside from the variations of mounts there was also soooo many qualities that i just needed to try such as 960p, 720p and WVGA. As i intend to use it alot for filming skateboarding the built in 170° wide angle lens was an added bonus.
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: I've mounted the 2 Go Pro Naked's that I bought in both our vehicles because I wanted to have peace of mind when I or my wife is driving. With the 'any thing goes' driving these days, it's nice to know we'll have a recording, in case one of us got into an accident and not have to worry about finding witnesses to back up our report.
Summary: GoPro HD Hero Naked Complete Review: Yes, a GoPro has survived a fall from low orbit. Yes a GoPro has been lost in the ocean for months and been recovered intact with complete recorded footage. Despite these success stories, (or maybe because of them), many people end up breaking their GoPros. These cameras don't just shrug off blows. Sure, they'll take serious punishment, but like anything, treat them with care and you'll be rewarded, neglect them, and they'll break.
Summary: This is a love-hate relationship with this camera. I love this camera. It takes great HD video, but is a pain to update the software. I purchased the wifi remote with low expectations other than just the off/on/record feature. I updated the firmware- 2 days effort. I downloaded cineform- several hours. Finally got that done. Updated the camera, the wifi and the remote-several more attempts and several more hours. FInally got that done and tested the camera and remote.
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
28 August 2012
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?
