excellent, lasts long, worth it
9 August 2017
I've been using this for 2 years to document mostly time lapse of my durational art works and still alive and working! I carry it with me everytime I travel as well, so it really has proven itself in terms of longevity. It really depends on what you want it for. The image resolution is high but not really comparable with DSLR (sometimes depends on the amount of light and angle) , so don't buy this and expect that. It's built for specific reasons and that in itself is quite amazing already.
The screen at the back is a major help, really elevated the ease of use, framing and functions of the gopro. I don't think I'll ever go back to not having one! It's very convenient to see what you want to take and to have access to preview, so I would say really good for beginners or first time gopro users.
As many people have mentioned though, it is quite pricey, but if you can afford it, go for it and enjoy. Although I would say, it's better if you have a specific project or work in mind that you'll use it for, so you can maximise the product.
