Summary: This was a Christmas gift, and I was disappointed to find out that the camera doesn't come with the cords you need to operate it. It is not ready to go out of the box. So, now I have to order the cords for it before it can even be used.
Summary: I bought a Gopro 3 white camara from someone on ebay and used it 3 times before it stopped working. I had to return it to the factory in California in mid December and haven't heard anything from them since. I am assuming they are looking into the matter. I was told by the person I bought it from it was brand new. I guess we will see.
Summary: GoPro sells by Good Marketing. It's not worth the camera it seems. I have experienced many Cameras and honestly wasn't impressed too much with the GoPro. I had much higher expectations. Comparison: My Galaxy S3 Phone can record equivalent quality footage if not better. 1080P 30 FPS with better performance in low light. Even the Canon Point and Shoot Cameras can do equivalent or better than this. They are also very light weight.
Over heats during the day light hours when used as a dash cam

Summary: ok i got this for use as a dash cam in my car. i like the app on the phone (android phone) and althought it has issues at times, all of which can be solved by restarting phone and/or camera. Camera seems to over heat with the usb charger cable attached or just on battery. I live in Rhode Island so its not like i live in the desert or on the sun.
Summary: Purchased a GoPro Hero3 White at the end of April 2013 and I can confirm that (1) you will likely spend at least an hour or two trying to update software (2) the update process seems to fail randomly, (3) even after updates there are still numerous problems. Definitely still *not* ready for prime time. I'd pass unless you have strong technical skills, plenty of time and lots of patience. I'd also recommend checking out the "known issues" list at [...
Summary: First ride, I was removing GoPro from my helmet and one of the "arms" of the clip broke. Later in the same afternoon the other arm also broke. Had to use the chest to save the ride. Far below expectations...
Summary: Wir haben diese Kamera primär für tauchen gekauft. Wir sind an einem echt einzigartigen Ort geflogen, einer der besten Tauchplätze der Welt und wollten einige Errinerungen in Form von Fotos und Videos beibehalten. Das hat leider fast gar nicht geklappt. Wir hatten uns dazu noch zwei Speicherkarten von Samsung, je 16gb neu bestellt. Am Anfang hat alles gut funktioniert, aber wir haben dann gemerkt während den Tauchgängen, wie die Kamera oft einfach einfror.
Summary: La qualità del video (e delle foto) risente moltissimo della condizione di illuminazione dell'ambiente circostante. La qualità video degenera in maniera eclatante quando c'è poca luce e si evidenziano addirittura fenomeni di "ghosting" ... con molto rumore e linee verticali. Usando schede di memoria classe 10, a tutte le risoluzioni, quanto sopra descritto è chiaramente avvertibile e fastidioso. L'utilizzo in 720p 25 fps forse è il più indicato.
