  • Summary: Door hinge breaks off just after 4 month's use. Was used for underwater activities and always protected in hard case. Plastic in hinge appears brittle and hairline cracks are showing up.

Not up to professional snuff

Stephen, B&H Photo
27 January 2015
  • Excerpt: I had bought this camera, knowing it wouldn't provide the picture quality of a full-size camera and that it was really for specific action applications, but even still I was very disappointed with the amount of digital artifacting caused by the compression. The picture quality for movies is trashy, even with full sunlight or studio lighting. It's small, it's affordable, and you can use it underwater... But pick up the HERO4 instead.
  • Pros: Durable, Small, Waterproof, Weather Resistant
  • Cons: Terrible Picture Quality

  • Summary: ...the camera would not link to WIFI after my husband spent hours trying to figure it out. Also the image is not clear. Kind of grainy. Working with the manufacturer for a replacement. So yeah, no final word on this as we can't use it as anticipated. Bought it christmas eve 2014. Cant say yet that i can recommend to friend but this system wont allow me to post without a decision so, there ya go.

Be sure if you need it

  • Excerpt: I bought thinking it would be useful, but it isn't. The position you use it don't record very well, at least if you want to record only you. Your hand shouldn't shake a lot, otherwise your film won't be good.
  • Cons: Difficult To Use

Battery Life killed this product.

To Protect the Innocent "no_hacker", Amazon
30 October 2014
  • Summary: Before I bought the GoPro i did a lot of research. I concluded this is what i want for documenting my outdoor adventures. The biggest thing to note about this camera is that the battery really does last for 2 hours or less. And no, you can't extend the battery by turning it off until you want to start shooting. If you use the wifi remote to turn it off, it is still burning battery juice, and it will die in less than 2 hours.

Great for UW video

Robert W. Hedge II "Hedgehog", Amazon
15 October 2014
  • Summary: Great for UW video, not good at all for UW stills. Flooded on 2nd day of use, went to 70 ft first dive, no problem, about 65 min bottom time, took to surface, put in rinse tank, air dried on camera table and did visual exam. 2nd dive to 45 ft, took a couple videos, swam around a bit, went to do a still and noticed good bit of water swishing around.

water leaking into gopro

STG, Amazon
6 August 2014
  • Summary: I had problems with the housing leaking water despite having very tightly sealed and anti-fog insert inside the housing. I contacted the seller regarding this but they have failed to get a response. I am concerned that a new camera and housing is necessary because of the potential damage that was done despite it functioning ok at this time. I am even willing to send back the current camera and housing once I receive the new pieces.

Eh

Rick, B&H Photo
11 July 2014
  • 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.
  • Cons: Not Functional, Poor Design
