GoPro Hero 3 Edition Camcorder -, Would Be 5 Stars Except Battery Life

I bought my ‘white’ edition in walmart in the states ($200 not £200), just before learning to scuba dive and going zip-lining. With little experience i found it worked as advertised straight out of the box, without fault and without any problems whatsoever. I did later upgrade the firmware, via the manual method, but this didn’t stop me using it straight away. Pros;- the original skeleton housing, suction cup and time lapse frame rates of 0. 5 or 1 second gave me some superb videos of driving up mt haleakla on maui, and the hana coast. Used underwater in the waterproof housing down to 90ft, provided no problem either (though i did find the red front colour correction filter trapped minute bubbles which needed to be cleared semi-regularly). Due to the extreme wide angle nature of the lens, what i though might be jerky video from a car bonnet seamed to be ironed out with no effort on my part at all. Sound quality was pretty good in the skeleton housing, and was even fairly good in the waterproof housing at depth too. Battery life was pretty good, well in excess of an hour and a half, using 1s timelapse photos, and you could easily get an average afternoons stop start video from it if turned off in between events.

Nice gadget, but with some drawbacks. It is a nice gadget which comes with many accesoires. I used it to film my daughter. Because of the head strap i couldmfollow her easily. Also i tried it on a bike trip of 1,5 hours. 40 minutes due to an empty battery. This is too fast if you want to record any interesting trip. I found out the battery lasts longer if you switch off wifi. Also i found the unboxing and setting up not very intuitive.

Great camera for surfing and diving. I like this camera a lot it came on time and it’s wonderful. Just make sure you get the right micro sd card to work with it if you want good quality videos and pictures.

This is not the sort of thing that i really need. But heck, it’s nearly christmas, so when it came up in the black friday sale, i put it into my basket. Then took it out, as it was still more expensive than i had hoped. The item then showed as all sold. Then went back a bit later, and saw that a few other people had obviously done the same, as it there were now only 98% sold. So i decided it was fate, and clicked on buy again. I now have it, and it is very much as expected, takes very high quality video up to 4k and stills up to 12mp. When the rest of the bits that i ordered arrive, it will go on my bike, and maybe a quadcopter is on the horizon as well.

I previously reviewed this camera ‘as awful’. After all the known problems with this camera well documented. I wrote a scathing review due to the lack of customer service. Now after an email from a gopro tech, listing several things to correct my issues, the camera and accessories are working faultlessly. Before you throw yours out the window if yours freezes won’t charge, stops recording or any of the many other issues reported; make sure the firmware is updated properly. I thought mine had however it hadn’t. Manually download the update don’t install java. Follow the instructions on the web site. Save it to your desktop and open the zip file. Drag the unzipped files to the sd card. Wait it takes about 10 minutes to update it should display the percentage.

Out of the box and straight in to action the gopro hero 3 produces a pretty high quality image and certainly did not disappoint. The camera has a great focus underwater, which i found a huge benefit. The image is generally clean, it lacks some detail along sharp edges when focussing in and can return some flat pictures. I find the quality with photos comes from still shots taken from the recording feature. Through the night i tend to get soft edged photos the occasional washed out image, and pixel binning, but again, it worked well for what i needed it for. It has a great mountable design which allowed me to but it basically anywhere and position it well to get the best shots. The battery life is far better than i expected which again is a huge bonus if your out recording for long periods of time. I would definitely recommend getting a gopro to anyone, they work really well, small and easily mountable and return good quality images/videos.

I bought the go pro hero 3 black edition 3 years ago. I’ve always loved the design and it’s brilliant for someone like me who does a lot of outdoor activities (swimming, skiing etc) with moments you never want to forget. You need to consider what you actually will use the camera for, how often and what you’ll do with the videos after as to what camera will suit you. The reviews were brilliant and i have not been disappointed, it records perfect quality and i have not had a single issue in three years. I’d recommend this camera, plus, you can just keep buying add-on extras each birthday/christmas as a little present to yourself. The quality is perfect, at 4kp fps, 2. 7 kp 30 fps, 1440p48/ 1080p60/ 720p120 fps it’s brilliant. It’s realistically future proof for the long term, for the photos the 12mp 30fps burst is brilliant to ensure you get the picture you want. Especially when doing something crazythe wifi and wifi remote (built in on the black edition) are brilliant and have never let me down.

The battery that came with the gopro wasn’t the original battery and wasn’t as powerful, but apart from that, all was good.

Sony Mondaine Swiss Railway Clock Face, Good Indoor Camcorder.

Good product, would recommend it – high quality picture for a budget range, but also compares well to pricier similar products. This is my fourth sony camcorder, every time i update the camera has been smarter and smaller, and this is certainly true of the hdrcx130. It is tiny, but …
