5.0 out of 5 stars Genuine product at a great price, 20 Aug 2014

Excellent price and quick delivery. There's a lot of talk about fakes not performing as they should but this definitely appears to be genuine and meets the demands of my GoPro 3+ Black edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money on cheaper cameras at this great price, 7 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I guess like many people I've toyed with the idea of buying a GoPro, but as exciting events to film don't happen too often for me I've previously bought a variety of considerably cheaper mini cameras.

Alas all have been either very disappointing, have difficult or limited mounting options or simply broken - so wasting over 200...

If I'd just bought a GoPro in the first place I'd have actually saved money... And now the top model is less than 270 I took the plunge and bought one, and a storage case, and tripod, and suction mount etc etc

Now I've got one I can see what all the fuss is about. What a top quality piece of kit, evolved over many years and obviously heeded feedback to make it what it is today - a little jewel.

So after using it for a week or so here's my thoughts:

Pros:

- super quality throughout
- now great value at 270
- excellent GoPro app that's a must, to view what the camera see's, quickly change all the settings, review photos and videos
- secure mounting system and an endless array of mounting possibilities
- large range of video and photo size and quality options
- make videos, high quality photos, burst photos (up to 30pics in a sec), time lapse (from 1 to 30 sec increments)
- excellent wifi remote that shows the same data on the screen as the camera and allows you to stop start and change all the settings - I've mainly used it for taking photos whilst driving... Very easy to simply press the remote button
- impressive battery life when you consider how small the battery is
- good sound quality - most other cameras I've tried are poor or simply rubbish
- huge amount of ideas and tips on the internet

Cons:
- camera screen and menu system is navigated with just 2 buttons and can take a little getting used to
- no built in screen so need to use the GoPro App on an ipad or iPhone for setting up
- app video and photo quality is quite poor due to wifi transmission speed limits and the large data size and doesn't show previews of some of the higher quality formats
- small removable cover that hides the charging sockets etc is diddly and easy to lose - to be honest I think it's best to leave it off and save it somewhere safe
- the best GoPro mounts seem expensive but beware the very cheap ones... Use Amazon or forums and stick to middle priced ones with good feedback

Most of us don't have extreme or exciting lives to constantly video but don't be put off, there's so many other things and interesting shots you can take on country walks, with your pets, driving or cycling etc. the high speed and time lapse modes are especially interesting. Practice with unusual angles and positions and you get a new twist on everyday events.

Go ahead and play!

Superb quality and excellent value... Very pleased.
Everything has a plush feel about it.
Sometimes a little tricky to return the ball adjuster to exactly level... I just need more practice I guess

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as useful as hoped, 7 Aug 2014
Pretty well made and reasonable value but not clear what fits where...?
The foam is quite hard so no adaptability to put different things in the spaces provided... Therefore bits fall out of the lid when you open it.
Only obvious place is where the camera goes. No obvious place for the remote or leads. Would be better to have some elasticised pockets in the lid or adjustable sections...
Overall not as good as I hoped... Will be looking for a better one to buy

Ok'ish and arrived on time but appear to have been printed on a home printer onto yellow sticky back film.
Not cut very square and not sure how durable the printer ink will be to sun and rain...

Have used a couple of times now and seems to have good long term suction... In fact it's a bit tricky to get off.
The mounts and adjusters all lock securely and fit the go pro slide in connector just fine.
Overall pleased and can recommend
