Reviews and Problems with GoPro HD HERO2 Motorsports
Showing 1-6 of 6
Arrived with a screw missing and rattling around inside the electronics
5 June 2013
Summary: Purchased 6/2013 for $386 total. The first thing I noticed is the camera rattled when I moved it around. I also noticed that one of the four screws in the battery compartment that hold the camera together was missing. Putting 2+2 together, I surmised that the missing screw was rattling around inside the body of the camera.
Summary: It's a decent little video camera, but too simple in certain areas and too complicated in others. If you want to get really into it, you're going to have to buy a bunch of little add-ons like an lcd screen for the back, improved water proof case, tripod etc. It gets really expensive and at the end of the day, you still just have a mediocre little camera.
Summary: Camera's overall build quality is far from good. For an action cam, at this price, it's not the best deal I've made. Suction pump works great and holds on to almost any surface, including wooden tables. But at only 3rd usage of the camera, the 3-way Pivot arm is cracked from 2 places. With no shock, no bump, no hit at all. By the way, the 3-way Pivot arm and Suction Pump itself has different kind of plastics.
Summary: Plastic mounting components a little too brittle. One articulated piece lefdt my camera hanging on without a bolt to hold it in place. You can't charge the camera even when using the skelon back becasue the charging socket is in the wrong place.
Excerpt: I bought this primarily as a cheap dive camera. Out of the box it won't focus underwater. This is addressed on many reviews on YouTube. There is now a dive housing made which addresses this issue. The quality is great. This is especially apparent once you realize how compact the camera is. Out of the box there is no viewfinder or LCD screen. This is an optional extra. One nice feature that isn't focused on much is the interval picture mode.
Pros: Small, bombproof . High Quality .
Cons: Needs to be accessorized for full funconality
