    New isn't Better

    I have the Silver 3+ and decided to upgrade. 4K, Wireless uploading and other options aren't necessary for me so I went with this camera to save some money. BIG MISTAKE. This camera's batteries are SO small, they die very quickly! You MUST buy additional spare batteries to continue filming. Screen stays on for min 1 minute before Power Save kicks in. I have the wireless remote to control my Silver 3+ when it's on my chest mount or helmet. IT DOES NOT WORK AT ALL on this camera. If it does, I have not figured it out yet. please leave me a comment. I know it has limited image sizes and FPS, so not reviewing that. It's small and lightweight but you still have to put it in a case in order to mount it, which makes it as big and heavy as the older cameras. all in all, just spend the extra $100 for the newest camera.

    Not ready for prime time

    I purchased this for my trip to Disney World and Playa Del Carmen. Video and controls were good for an entry level GoPro, but I had 2 major issues. First, sometimes it would say low battery when it had more than 80% charge in the battery. I would either have to keep restarting or plug it into the charger to fix the issue. Second, sometimes it wouldn't even turn on when I pressed the record button. It is currently on Fireware 1.0, so I'd wait till some firmware updates before purchasing this new Hero. I'll be returning mine to Best Buy.

    I love my new GoPro. However, I do not understand why the previous Hero had 4k and this one does not. Nonetheless, it is a quality product and GoPro has a complete line of accessories to ensure you can take this little guy with you wherever you go. While I do not plan on using it underwater, it is good to know that rain will not be an issue when I'm out on my bike. One thing, though. The GoPro box and website were very unclear as to which MicroSD cards were compatible with the Hero 2018. Both the Best Buy employee and I spent around 20 minutes online looking for an answer.

    It's a very nice camera, very solid. The image quality is exactly what you would expect from 1080p 60, 10 MP camera. - very easy to use, touchscreen -waterproof to 33 ft, no need waterproof housing -quick start recording I wish it has a slow motion recording option and the time-lapse mode is limited to 0.5 sec only. Yes, I would recommend this camera to everyone who needs a solid basic waterproof action camera.

    This is our first GoPro and so far we love it. Its a great camera for beginners and first time gopro owners. We based our decision to go with the 2018 hero on others reviews. We dont have a ny 4k products so it didnt make sense to record in 4k if we wouldn’t be able to enjoy it. The quality of video and pictures is better than expected. Highly recommend this camera to anyone who’s starting out in the action camera field.

    I bought this camera specifically for my anniversary trip to Jamaica with my husband. We knew we would be snorkeling and wanted to be able to video underwater. We were extremely pleased with how easy it is to use and with the quality of the video! Our kids also love taking videos underwater at the pool, so we will definitely get lots of enjoyment from this little camera! I'm so glad that we decided to purchase it and highly recommend it!

    Started flying this year and wanted to record my flight for training reference. Being new to GoPro and recording action videos for that matter I didn’t want to invest a ton of money to start. This GoPro was so easy to use and set up. Transferring video to PC for editing is a breeze. Have had no problems at all. Note to buyer: Make sure to pick up and SD card with the camera as it doesn’t come with one.

    Never owned one of these. This thing is awesome! I can sync it to my phone, then start/ stop &switch between pic/video settings while the kids are swimming in the water. The touch screen on the camera is easy to figure out, even for someone like me that doesn't like to read directions. When I did (finally) read the directions I found out that this little gizmo is capable of even more.
