I'm beside myself

CS, Amazon

  • Summary: I had this camera, then bought the wifi bacpac and the camera and wifi would not work together. I updated the firmware and it broke the camera. After weeks working with gopro I mailed it to them which they sent me one back.

Extremely unreliable camera

babarnette, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased my GoPro Hero 2 new from Play-It-Again Sports in Wasilla, AK during the month of November 2012. I purchased this camera on the recommendation of a friend who said that the image quality was superior to the ContourHD camera I had been using previously.

Great video until it dies, terrible customer support

Pitch, Amazon
10 November 2012
  • Summary: I bought three of the Go Pro Hero 2's for aviation, diving and motorsport apps. They work really well, until they don't. One died after a firmware upgrade at month 6 after probably 15 uses. It received a firmware upgrade, now the camera will freeze completely while cycling modes or power.

Wait for something better to come along...

bpl607, Ebay
16 March 2012
  • Summary: If you like fake looking video with a constant fish eye look, mediocre sound, no viewfinder, short battery life, an unintuitive user interface and a price tag that's twice what it should be, then look no further.

BEWARE Make sure you get a Hero"2"

Konrad Haskins, Amazon
4 February 2012
  • Summary: The Hero2 has Hero"2" printed on it and an HDMI port by the card slot. The box I got said Hero2 the manual Hero2 but the cam itself had NO HDMI port, did not say Hero2, and only had one LED making what I got NOT a "2".

Cheap chinese camcorder image quality!

Maths, Amazon
10 December 2011
  • Summary: No sure what is all that fuzz about the new GoPro HD Hero2. As a professional photographer I will put the GoPro HD2 on the same level as cheap chinese camcorders in terms of image quality. Very disappointing in my first test when using 1080P.

Still images badly underexposed. Tech support unresponsive.

Vearexperts, Amazon
25 November 2011
  • Summary: I bought a Hero2 3 weeks ago. It worked fine initially, but one day while taking a series of stills for a time lapse video, the still images went dark - almost completely black. I emailed technical support. They requested "samples" of the images.

  • Summary: When recording video, i keep getting a rattle sound in the recorded audio whenever the camera moves / shakes even when i shake it with or without the housing it makes a very noticable rattling sound from deep inside. it sounds like something is loose and shaking around inside!

Needs a reset button!

Shaun Dobbie "Shaun", Amazon
24 May 2012
  • Summary: I bought one for £200 on Ebay and it worked perfectly. The only complaints I have about it are that the full HD video is not quite as high quality as I was expecting. Also, there seems to be a slight foggy glare caused by the lens if the camera is pointed at a bright source of light in a dark room.
