Top customer reviews

I've used it several times as so far I love it. I don't need 4k for anything so its no loss. Charging the battery made it get hot so you may want to consider getting a dedicated charging station. I do love the USB-C cord. The instructions are a little simple so hit up YouTube reviews of the GoPro 5 or 6 to see the functions.

No clear way to insert the battery. Of course I got it wrong the first time and spent 10 minutes trying to pull it back out without damaging anything. Now that its in its staying. For some reason I spent 20 minutes looking for where to stick the microSD card. Not sure if I'm duh or its just not clear.

The quality is fantastic. Once I tinkered with photos and videos and saw them on my monitor they are fantastic.

Only works with wifi on my iPhone 7 Plus. For some reason the bluetooth wouldn't connect at all.

Okay, so I must admit I jumped at the chance to own a GoPro when the new hero came out for $199! Honestly, it is a fantastic deal on a very good little action camera. The ability to aim and frame your shots is amazing as is the highly responsive and intuitive touch screen control. The video and image quality is very good, but it does struggle in dim and backlit situations. Images are surprisingly sharp and white balance is almost always perfect, which was a pleasant surprise. Overall I love almost everything about this camera with one exception... the battery life is abysmal. I do some time lapse photography and can barely manage to eek out 2 hours with this camera (the Sony as50 that I also use runs for 3.5+ hours). You can buy extended battery packs, but they double the size and require a case to get wet. Other than the battery life, this baby is a winner!
