Best action camera i have seen! I ordered this on the 23rd of December at around 5pm, then i didn't expect to see this until after Christmas, but i received it the very next day at about 9.30am! and i only opted for he free 3-5 business day delivery! Delighted.

Only one con though, it is very hard to get a good position when mounting to your front windshield on the inside.

Other than that, it's an amazing camera!! high;y recommended!!

This is a fantastic bit of kit for scuba divers. Waterproof to 60M. Even without the flat lens results are stunning for what it is. The helmet straps go well around a diving lamp providing enough illumination for most dives.
In blue water the results would be mind blowing.
I can't recommend it highly enough and I'm a very picky person about dive kit.

I bought this particular camera for Mountain Biking, Surfing and Snowboarding and although I bought the Motorsports edition, it just happened to be about £50 cheaper than the naked camera or the Helmet version. The package itself came with some really useful adapters, and anything else you might need can be bought separately easily enough. Overall I am very pleased with the quality of this camera, particularly in 720p (60fps) mode. I have tried 960p (30fps) and 1080p (30fps) but I have found the playback of the footage to be a bit choppy, perhaps if you have a really powerful PC, then this might not be an issue. I'm editing my footage on a laptop with a Intel Core2Duo 2.4GHz processor, 4GB RAM and a 256mb Nvidia GeForce 8600M-GT running Windows 7 Pro 64-Bit and find 1080p footage far too choppy. The quality of the video in 720p is more than adequate though and plays back perfectly. The Camera encodes the files as MP4(H.264) and will take up to a 32GB SD Card. The battery lasts around 4 hours on full charge and a 32GB SD Card will store about 8 hours of footage in 720p mode. In direct sunlight, the camera does suffer a little with glare but you can find aftermaret Polarized filters on the internet for less than a tenner and these make a big difference. I'm also considering buying a flat lens for Scuba Diving because the fish eye lens does some really weird things to the focus under water. I had considered the slightly cheaper Contour HD but there are far more mounting options for the Go Pro and from the results, I have definitely made the right choice. I've also started noticing these little cameras all over the place. Especially on various TV programs where a film crew just isn't practical.

The camera is great, the video quality is amazing for such small camera, has a nice battery life.

What is good:
- Great video quality during the day
- Great battery life
- Has HD
- Rigging gear is good
- Easy to charge (common plug, mini-USB)
- Uses a simple SD card (it's always nice to have standards applied)

Here are the painpoints:

- The interface is a little complicated, I think that it would not harm to better design the front screen. But it's not a major issue.
- The night quality could be better. Are you planning to video at night. Forget it. It's very noisy.
- The lack of a back screen means that you need to go off your experience with the camera to get useful images with it.

I am just back from using one of these cameras snowboarding in Tignes and I am very impressed with the picture quality and results that it produced.

I used it with a handheld mount that cost about £20... bit expensive for a piece of plastic!

I only used the camera on the R3 setting, 720p with 60fps which produced some great slow motion in Final Cut Pro X. On that note the camera files had no problem being imported into the software.

Camera with the casing felt very solid and took a few impacts during the holiday with no damage at all.

Recording with the video was easy. I set it up with the one button record feature so when I powered it on it started recroding and similarly stopped recording and powered down with the same button.

With me loving pretty much everything about this camera the one thing that I didnt like was that on quite a few occasions after recording footage and pressing the button to stop recording the camera seemed to hang. I was using a class 10 SD card in the camera so I don't think that it was still writing as I left it for a good couple of minutes before I had to resort to removing the battery which then corrupted the file I recorded. This was rather annoying as I lost what would have been some good footage. The lesson I learned was to only record a couple of minutes at a time.

The lost footage was a bit of a pain but I really like everything else about this camera. I spotted loads of people on the slopes using these and a lot of the pros are using these as well. So highly recomended but just watch out about the crashing, maybe a firmeware update will sort this.

As a whitwater and coastal kayaker, I had been after a GoPro HD for a long time to record our days on the water in the best quality I could obtain. I wanted a robust, compact camera, with the best water resistance, highest resolution, and a massively flexible mounting system.

And that is exactly what I got.

The versatility of the HERO HD is second to none, and has performed outstandingly so far. It came with excellent mounts, that have super sticky 3M fixing pads attached, a range of adjustable arms and fixings to allow the best positioning, and I get a good 2 hours plus from the LI-Ion cell, even when recording at 1080p. A 32GB SD card was all I needed to buy in addition to make this the ultimate addition to my paddling kit.

The stills are 5 megapixel, which is ample, the audio is crisp with the open back in dry conditions, and even pretty good when fully enclosed in the waterproof back. It plugs straight into my PC, and the Windows Live Movie Maker software that same with Windows 7 Home Premium handles the MPEG4 files with ease, making basic editing of your footage a blast. The camera even splits long files into convenient 3.8GB chunks seamlessly to aid in keeping things tidy and the file sizes manageable for the USB interface speeds.

Configuration of the camera itself is very straight forward, and the enclosed instructions can be read and digested in just a few minutes to give the user sufficient competency to get out and start using it right off the bat.

Don't leave them sitting on the shelf at this price folks! The HERO HD 2 might be slightly faster and and do 11MP stills, but it's a lot more money, and for regular use the difference versus cost is negligible in my opinion. This deal is not one to be missed!
