Do NOT upgrade the software from GoPro site or you trash it.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
30 September 2013
  • Summary: The camera worked fine until I upgraded the software per GoPro's site recommendation. These things "brick" once you do that. Google "gopro freeze after update" to read more but get the word out... DON'T update the software! GoPro won't fix this either so there's a class action law suit started since THEIR software update destroyed the camera's of tens of thousands of people.

Could have been great

Revolution, Amazon
18 June 2013
  • Summary: This would have been a great camera. It has some awesome features. However, it rarely works. Often times I will charge it for hours on end, only to unplug it and have it die right away. Sometimes it won't read the memory card. I am disgusted by how much money I spent on a camera that occasionally works. I am on my second GoPro, and working with costumer service to have my 3rd replacement sent out.

Looked good..smelled good but crapped out after 14 months

F. E. Fleming, Amazon
30 May 2013
  • Summary: Very upset camera dead after 14 months.....2 months past warranty. This camera has been in a protective camera case, never dropped and never exposed to any damaging weather. No one takes better care of their equipment than I do. It locks up and you can not use it. The only way to get it to come back on is remove the battery....totally toasted. With accessories I have in excess of $500.00 tied up in a brick. Would I buy another one....H*LL no!

where to begin

Lou, Amazon
1 April 2013
  • Summary: This is brilliant. A company decides to put out a cheap, terrible camera, with no view finder or LCD screen like it is 1990 and charge you $300. Next the software is so crappy that the firmware upgrade bricked my unit within 20 minutes of owning the device. Total waste of time and money. You can mount a cellphone in a waterproof case for way cheaper, and its something that you already use and own!!

iitem good description of package bad

ddahlski, Amazon
30 March 2013
  • Summary: Love the go pro. I bought the " outdoor edition" which on Amazon said it came with head mount and a few more accessories. I received just the camera. When I asked about it with the shipper. I was informed I was wrong and I purchased just the camera. Which means I can't read English. Amazon advertised it wrong or the sellers did not realize how Amazon described the "outdoor edition" package.

Complete Garbage

Nathan M. Essick, Amazon
17 March 2013
  • Summary: I am going to you a favor and write the review that I wish I had read before I had spent my money on the Hero 2. While the Hero 2 does come with a great set of accessories that allow it to be incredibly versatile it does have one MAJOR flaw. The Hero 2 is notorious for not only not charging but also not turning on. Right out of the box my hero 2 won't charge or turn on.

Camera is a low quality gimmick

Stephen Jackson, Amazon
31 January 2013
  • Summary: The camera is very compact, but both the still photos and video are of very low quality. Even an 8 MB still photograph has a poor resolution. Images are fish-eyed, even out of water without the waterproof case, but even that would be acceptable if they weren't also very blurry.

Waste of good money

L. Farr "RenditionStudios", Amazon
13 January 2013
  • Summary: This camera is designed to be rugged (when encased) and hard to use, and I am a photographer by trade. The button that turns it ON is the same as the button that changes modes. Dumb design. This means you are often taking the time to shift back to "video" or whatever when all you wanted was to turn it on and shoot. This mode shift is not a quick process. Turning it on and off requires a very hard, deliberate push that you have to hold for some time.
