One problem I have come across is that when I took this in the see body-boarding, although the waterproof case prevented water from entering the camera, sand and salt got stuck in the groove between the screen and the body of the camera - some of which I could not remove! This is also quite expensive, for the price I am paying, I would appreciate a second battery as standard as I had to purchase a second one. However, they do charge very quickly thanks to the USB type C charger.
You also require a decent microSDHC\microSDXC card as 4K video requires very fast write speeds so bear that in mind when buying this camera (I have a V30 rated SDHC).
To summarise, this really is a great camera and I am glad that I have bought it despite the price. I recommend this action cam over others as I simply don't trust the alternative cheapo action cams on Amazon, at least when you are buying from GoPro, you are guaranteed quality and reliability.
Also there are many accessories you can buy. I purchased one but the underwater float was junk and so I purchased a genuine GroPro holder/float and it did won't it said it would do. Please don't risk spending £100's on your camera and trust it to a piece of junk buy the genuine GoPro handle/float. They are worth the £20.
The first issue that I have is that the battery life is quite limited, I got about an hour and a half on a full charge. I bought a spare to overcome this but it's still something to be aware of if you have a full day of action.
My second problem came after a few days when I found that one of the tabs had snapped on the frame that carries the camera, I had only been snorkeling in the sea at this point so I have no idea how this happened. I looked into this and found that it's quite a common problem. Amazon are changing the case for me and I am going to buy a third party replacement case with stronger tabs.
All in all I am really happy with my purchase.
video quality is outstanding, at 2.7k , 60fps, stabilize on, every frame is a quality picture, camera mounted on the front of a very vibration prone moto, for examplle, ride past somebody jogging and you can later select a frame where both their feet are off the ground, no blurring, however i'm not sure mounting the camera to something with so much vibration is a good long term idea, but using the camera attached to myself when riding the bike gets close up parts of the bike in shot, this has the affect of putting the surrounding areas out of focus, a hand, rear view mirror, screen, bang in focus but view a single frame and the objects to either side, buildings, vehicles, people, trees, scenery, it's all blurry and a bit rubbish, but with the camera on the front of the bike, despite vibration, every single frame is so very good, even the clouds, just stunning.
the camera gets some of the voice commands wrong when in noisy environments and has on a couple of occasions decided to show off it's capabilities that i had been unaware of, such as killing audio when it decided the wind noise was excessive, ie when traveling at speed, then restoring sound when pulling up at traffic signals, and one time switching to a mode where it took pictures whilst also recording video, maybe it was just making me aware of it's talents should i require them. dunno. mostly it behaves faultlessly. it is a very good camera. the quality of those frames is just excellent.
