5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Camera and extremely high res., 7 May 2013
By 
This review is from: GoPro Hero 3 Edition Camcorder - Black (12 MP) (Camera)
I bought this camera to capture my wake boarding and snowboarding but I also got the LCD backpack and you can use it like a regular video camera.

The device is amazingly small and light, in fact most of the cameras mass seems to be taken up by the battery. The quality of video is way higher than anything my hi def tv or PC can display. The resolution can be set up to a maximum of 4k which will easly future proof my investment for the next generation of TV's. The frame rate is very high too and delivers nice smooth action video.

I read some problems with firmware on early models that were sold, but this seems to have been rectified, as mine worked out of the box. I still upgraded the firmware using the manual process and it was as easy as downloading a zip file, copying the upgrade to a new memory card and then switching the camera on. That's all there was to it.

Love the GoPro app that allows you to remote control and preview video on a smartphone or iPad and the fact you can get a mount that will allow you to fix the camera to practically anything.

The only very minor negative is the battery life, as it only last for about 1 1/2 hours when filming, but is easily fixed by picking up some spares cheaply.

I have given this product 5 stars as it totally deserves it and is hard to find fault with.
