Great camera for travel

GoPro Hero3+ failed after little use (but out of warranty, doh!)

 

Camera failed after little use and after a short period of storage (not in use when failure occurred). Camera had been well looked and had never been wet. Unfortunately the camera was 22 months old so no warranty. GoPro offered the same 20% discount...

Most Annoying Wifi Setup

 

Granted the camera is brilliant, but after 2 years of having the damn thing and then, as humans do, forgetting the wifi password, you literally have to go through the most ridiculous steps to get your wifi reset. With all today's modern technology you...

Dumbest Company In The World!

Awesome Gopro Hero3+ Black Edition

Great quality!

 

The GoPro Hero 3+ Silver is a great little device. It produces fantastic quality photos and videos with a variety of useful settings. The in-built wifi is fantastic for transferring files wirelessly. Another top feature is the waterproof case, and the...

Once you get to know your GoPro, it's your best friend.

 

r. It means you can stand back from the camera, see how it looks, and remotely control it. That being said, the wifi remote isn't reallyi a great bonus for me, but the wifi (that is only on the black edition so far) is definitely by far an awesome...

Super light weight and small.

Probably easy to misplace if you're not careful.

Once you get to know your GoPro, it's your best friend.
