Excerpt: This leaked when using the fogless strip sold by Go Pro. Had a battery extender and extended back. Second underwater use and it leaked. Dried out but still dead. Won't try to repair as it is throwing moeny after good.
Great when it works. GoPro support is awful though. Good luck getting help if it fails.

Summary: I know this can be a great camera, but the case leaked the very first time we used it and the water killed the camera. So we paid hundreds of dollars for nothing. When we complained to gopro they would not do anything to help. No refund, no repair, nothing.
Summary: This camera is about 100 more than the off brand cameras, but there is a reason - this camera is way better!

Summary: I purchased this camera for a Christmas present and it will not hold a charge. My kids have not been able to use it and are having to return it! I'm very disappointed since I purchased on line and had to drive 40 miles to pick it up!

"Good quality videos"... if you manage to get them off this piece of junk

Summary: I bought this camera about a month ago hoping to record my skydives... Don't have a single recording yet! The very first jump I was recording ended up in cutaway. After I safely landed on my reserve parachute, the first thought was "yay, I'm alive", and the second was "how awesome, I got it on...
Summary: Simply, I hated the fish eye effect of the camera lens. Their idea of a wide angle lens is to make the world like like you are seeing it as a fish. Unfortunately there is no way to adjust this in the white edition, only the black.
Summary: A significant downgrade to my Hero 3 Black, the 3+ Black is out of focus for anything past a few metres. Everything ends up blurry and smeared. Seems the still picture output quality has been downgraded too as file sizes are much smaller suggesting more compression even when everything is in focus...
