The GoPro Hero 2 is still as good or perhaps better than 3+

Summary: I bought the GoPro Hero 2 couple of years back for shooting vehicles and we've used it in almost all our out door shoots. The lens angle is a bit of a let down - but that's a problem with all GoPro cameras. The colour density can be worked on in post and the camera can take a few knocks.
Summary: I only had mine for 2 months before I destroyed it. ;( I went surfing, diving, fishing, hiking, cliff jumping, skating, etc and it was great. I have some great memories recorded and definitely feel like I got my moneys worth in the short time it survived.
Summary: We bought this camera for our son who lives in Hawaii as a Christmas gift. He loves to surf, so this seemed to be the perfect gift. He has already used it a few times and says that it is light-weight and takes great videos of his surfing skills.
Perfect for every outdoor, underwater, sport adventures

Summary: the gopro hero 2 is an excellent video camera for your outdoor adventures, use a head strap or a pole and ur set. it has a very good video and photo quality. Compare to other camcorder the hero 2 is easy to use, light, and waterproof for example which make it a great choice.
Summary: In a sunny day, the camera works perfectly...its amazin, I love it, It looks like a toy, at first its a litle hard to use, because it only has two buttoms, but after that its a doll. Great definition, but isnt macro!!! And when you use the waterproof case, the sound isnt very good.
Summary: This was my first foray into video cameras. I wanted to make short movies of various scooter rides and other events. As mentioned in other reviews, the product comes with a limited set of extras. I subsequently purchased various RAM mounts, e.g. to mount the camera on my scooter and for tripod use.
Summary: First of all this product arrived faster than it said it would which always makes me happy. But to the matter at hand the product, I knew before buying this product that there were 3 downfalls to it. The first being there is no LCD viewer attached to it, (you have to buy it seperatly).
Summary: Had it a couple of weeks and been testing it out on cycle journys around the city. Does a good job except when facing into the low morning sun (and really any camera is in trouble in those circumstances).
Summary: I would give 5 stars but i won't because when i went to the beach for a free surf session, the camera became fogged in less than 40 minutes of surfing. You must use some silica gel or the anti-fog stuff from GoPro inside the skeleton case for a good surf session. That's all folks!
