Excerpt: This thing opened up on me in the ocean while I was surfing. It didn't open all the way but enough to completely soak my gopro with salt water. On top of that this mount makes it very difficult to get anything but whatever it is that your wrist or arm is pointing at. This should have a swivel or something to make it more useful.
Excerpt: Very disappointed. I bought this to use while scuba diving. Although the video aspect is great (and what it's famous for), the photo quality is lousy. I did not realise when I bought it that the camera has no zoom function - this is critical to getting close to the subject underwater. I regret this purchase and wish I had spent the money on a regular still camera.
Excerpt: This review focuses on the Beneath the Surface GoPro tray and flex arm package, the Fantasea YS mount, and the Fantasea light. The GoPro Hero3+ (Black edition) has been reviewed extensively on B&H and elsewhere. The Beneath The Surface (BTS) tray itself is solid, although the rubber-grip handle could be about an inch longer – people with large hands will have problems holding it. The handle comes with a whole to attach a lanyard.
Pros: Hero3 Is Great
Cons: Flex Arm Very Weak, Grip Is Too Short, Light Not Securely Held
Summary: I'm sure this is a great gadget to have for sports and POV action. But I wanted a waterproof video camera for my outdoor adventures like hiking and camping. It felt like a toy, and with the waterproof case, the audio is completely useless. Don't get me wrong it's a great gadget, easy setup, it just didn't work for what I was going to do.
Summary: Bought this package and i need to upd the camera to be able to use it properly but the serial number is missing it is not in the battery compartment as usual and not on any stickers etc or warranty paper...
Summary: Between poor focusing, poor battery life, and just generally dissatisfied with a product that had so much hype behind it. You can contact gopro for a replacement / adjustment. But really, they should pull their heads from where the sun dont shine. Update: So a new problem that has creeped up. The gopro will stick you micro sd card in write protect mode. To overcome this you must right click on the gopro drive and open up as a portable device.
Excerpt: I'm not quite sure how they can call this a skeleton housing when it still covers up the microphone. The entire reason I wanted a skeleton housing is so that you could pick up audio with a gopro. Unfortunately, this casing still covers it. So, my only choice now is to manually route out a hole in the casing over the microphone. I could've done this with my pre-existing case, eliminating the need to buy this in the first place. Lesson learned.
