    By Dabbler TOP 500 REVIEWER
    Colour Name:Black Edition
    This is just a brief heads up for people looking to purchase this product. Product now 4 Stars with the new Update (see below)

    I reviewed the GoPro 3 when it came out and complained about the battery life, I'm happy to say with the new battery and Wifi hardware in this camera you get a much better recording time. Up to about 110% longer in some modes (30% more in others). The biggest gain to be had is when you are using Wifi, with it recording 1080 50fps and Protune on you can now record for 1 Hr 13mins as opposed to 30mins on the previous camera.

    However there is a big issue with the lens on some of the cameras, the one I had for testing was focused as about 2 feet (60cms) as a result anything further away looks a bit soft. GoPro are aware of this and are looking at the problem, however if you get a camera with 0913 in the serial number (digits 6-9) you will probably have this issue.

    There does also seem to be buffering on the video output over wifi, the latency is better but this means that the output is not as smooth, which might be important for some. I'll report more once I get a camera without the focus problem.

    My advice, hold off on buying one for the moment unless you can guarantee you'll get one without the focus problem (or you don't mind)

    **Update, GoPro now have cameras with the fix available (27/11), I've had a look and they have improved things with regards to focus. Also to note the colour accuracy of the 3+ is better than the 3. If using Protune Mode please be aware that your pictures may look a little soft, this is deliberate as sharpness can be added later in post production if required. ProTune is designed to give the most accurate pictures with the most latitude for adjusting later.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid until they resolve the focus problem 19 Nov 2013
    By Bob K TOP 1000 REVIEWER
    Colour Name:Black Edition
    I bought one from the UK a couple of weeks ago, I was assured by the supplier, (not Amazon), that it was received the day before from their wholesaler and was the latest issue without the focus problem.

    When it arrived it has an 0813 serial number. which from the US website forums also potentially has the problem.
    Mine is really very sharp & clear focus at 50cm from the lens gradually out of focus from there. Not a lot of use to me as I bought it to use with a quadrocopter for aerial property photos.

    Seems they have set it up for those who want to take arms length "Selfies" of their own face in various situations at the expense of the rest of us. You have to wonder what percentage of their customer base this represents.
    Not a lot I would think as most of the videos on their Twitter page are action shots, presumably not taken with the 3+ as they are generally in reasonable focus.

    There is also talk on the US forums of people "doing the Focus Mod" along with pic's of the lens cover being forcibly removed with a large pair of pliers - Drastic or what !

    At the price they charge for this I don't think it is unreasonable to expect at least software autofocus !

    IMHO GoPro have really shot themselves in the foot here.

    ************** EDIT ******************
    I contacted GoPro who told me to clean the lens and asked for a photo illustrating the problem. So I set one up using a 1 metre rule which clearly demonstrated that at the centre point of the depth of field the fixed focus point was only 30.15cm / 11.87 inches from the lens. Far worse than I thought! to be fair everything was super sharp at this point (as it should be).

    5.0 out of 5 stars Simply incredible 16 Mar 2014
    Colour Name:Black Edition|Verified Purchase
    I did loads of research before buying this because of the cost. The 2 things that slightly concerned me were the battery life and the reported lens problems. Firstly, if you get one, you'll be amazed by the power this little camera has. The resolution and options for photo and video capture are remarkable. Your main problem is going to be that you'll constantly be trying to think of how you'll mount it to the next thing ( thankfully there are plenty of mounts to enable you to do this ). It's brilliant fun and you'll find that you will actively start to do activities just to see how well it copes.
    So, to my two main issues. Apparently the lens issue has been completely resolved now and the focus on the one I received is perfect, whether you're up close and personal or filming landscapes. Secondly, I have to admit that I've already had excursions where the battery has run out just after I've been using it. This was on max resolution with wifi on so there are ways of lengthening it's overall life. To be frank, for a camera this size with the amount of power it churns out, I'm very impressed with the battery life. It will last over 2 hours and you can eek out more using tips from the website.
    There are 100s of positives to this unit and I struggle to find any negatives.
    Once you buy one join the GoPro community on their website and watch out for tips and tricks aswell as examples of how theyre used which will soon influence the way you film.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Best Actioncamera on the market. 25 Feb 2014
    By ZF
    Colour Name:Black Edition|Verified Purchase
    First camera I ordered was unfortunately from the early batches with the focus issue. (which produced decent images as well)
    Returned it and ordered again from a different seller on Amazon and got the new one. Serial number's: 6-9 digits are1113.

    I am very happy with my purchase, did lots of testing, exactly what I expected.
    Can't wait to use it on my upcoming holidays....
