    Quality and Great Price

    Posted .

    I've had this for about a week. This is my 6th GoPro and I have owned about every model they've released. Like most I bought this because of the price and I'm glad I bought it. I've used it for a total of about 30 minutes so far but so far here are my pro findings and my concerns (cons). Pros: 1. Sound seems better than any of the 3 and 3+ models I've had. I use my GoPros mainly for motorcycling and car driving and the sound so far seems much more deep and clear. 2. Battery life seems decent. If you use the instant on feature it saves on the battery. 3. Price. 4. Simple features and easy to use. 5. All 3 video quality settings are exceptional. Cons or concerns: 1. Integrated battery, I wonder when the battery dies how hard it will be to replace since the camera and housing are one. 2. Lens, I'm scared the lens is going to get scratched and that will not be good. I'm figuring somebody already trashed one of these so maybe they will crack it open and share the information on how the rest of us can replace the battery and lens when that day comes. I attached some screenshots from a video I took today. The one of the motorcycle is 720s and the one inside the car is 1080 30fps. If you're considering buying this, go for it. It is cheap and exceptional for the price. I've spent over $300 on GoPros and I like this one better.

    Husband just needed a go pro to film his buddy skateboarding videos. Does great video but the sound gets a bit choppy. Took it to warped tour and got amazing feedback we really like it.

    I bought this camera for a vacation in Hawaii. It was perfect for snorkeling and also took amazing photos out of the water. I'm happy with the quality.

    First time I've even bought a camera and it was sooo easy to use. The pictures I've gotten from this throughout my trips in Colorado and Utah have been amazing. Great camera for cheap.

    Entry Level, But Not Entry Performance!

    |
    Posted .

    About two months ago I purchased the GoPro Hero entry level action camera for mounting on my motorcycle helmet. I was looking for a camera that was cost-effective in a lower budget bracket and this camera seemed to fir right in. Seeking the cream of the crop when it comes to action cameras, I looked no further than GoPro. Before this edition of the camera, a GoPro simply was too expensive for me. I was looking for a camera that shot at least 720p at 60FPS for the smoothest video possible when riding. So with that said, let me list the features this camera has and then break it down: - 1080p (30FPS) & 720p (60FPS) HD video capture - Super Wide GoPro recording angle for amazing views - $129 price point - Built in battery (non-removable like the other Hero cams) - USB Charge port - Up to 32GB supported card (correct me if I'm wrong) - Built in, 'indestructible' case w/ 2 backplates for underwater / rough terrain recording - Build in microphone for audio capture - Day / night adjustment - Still picture taking @ 5MP, Time Lapse and burst photo modes - Quick release buckles as well as flat and rounded mounts in box ....more features as well... As you can see this camera really comes with everything you'd expect in the $300-500 range and with the exception of a few features essentially IS the same camera. VIDEO: Video quality is pretty darn good. Not as good as the new HERO4 and 4+, but very good. You can easily see up to several miles ahead if you are in open spaces, and for me, when riding on main roads and highways, you can see about 180 degrees left and right. The clear video allows you to read most signs and license plates as you pass (if on roads) and if you are out filming sports or anything else, you will have the clarity to see who is who and what is happening, all at 30 or 60 FPS at 1080 and 720, respectively. The ability to shoot 1080 at 60FPS would be nice, but that is what the upper echelon cameras are for. AUDIO: The built in mic won't wow you with its capture quality. It sounds muffled and soft at best, especially with the default closed back-plate on. With the slotted skeleton backing on, audio is much clearer, but still it isn't near as good as using third party mics connected to the camera, which as far as I know, is not capable with this camera. BATTERY: The battery will last you. How long varies to how often you are recording versus just having the camera on. I've been able to record about 2 hours of video on one charge, continuously. I've had the camera on for about 24 hours before it died just being idle, not recording. Could it be better with the ability to have GoPro packs connected, probably, but again for the price you really cannot go wrong. Only Con here is that if the battery should kick the bucket, you're out an entire camera as there is no way to replace it. SOFTWARE / PC CONNECTIVITY: The camera connects easily to a Mac or PC via USB. However, I don't like that is uses the now 'old' USB A to USB B connector versus the almost universal USB mini port you see on most USB devices and phones now. However, this doesn't really matter as it comes with the required cable. My problem is the cable is a little short (about 2 feet) and I like longer cables. I do not use the Go Pro editing software so my score is not reflective of that. OVERALL: If you are looking to get into the action camera market but have little to spend on the unit overall and accessories, this is probably the camera for you! It doesn't have WiFi (unless you get the HERO+) and won't shoot 1080 at 60FPS, or allow you to record endlessly with removable batteries, but for the price I personally didn't expect all the bells and whistles. This review is based on what the camera is made to do and everything it is supposed to do...IT DOES IT...and does it very well. Therefore, as the entry level GoPro, it exceeds my expectations, warranting it 5/5 from me.

    Great intro to the GoPro world

    Posted .

    I have wanted a GoPro for years but didn't want to spend the hundreds of dollars to see if I'd end up using it. Here's your answer, at $130 it's a no-brainer, even if you only end up using it every now and then on vacations etc. I have seen complaints about video quality, limited features and its permanent waterproof case. I have found that it shoots great quality video, even next to footage shot on its' big brothers. The time lapse isn't adjustable but you can edit it later. The case doesn't bother me and sound quality is ok with the skeleton back. I also found out that you can use external USB batteries to power it while it runs so there's no need to worry about the built-in battery. If I end up using it a lot I'll probably get a high-end model so I can have 2 and get different angles. If you're considering getting a GoPro but don't want to fully commit, the HERO is a no brainer.

    Great Action Camera, especially for the $

    It is not a GoPro HERO3 or HERO4, but it does everything it is supposed to do. Very easy to use and it was easy on the wallet. So far I have just messed around with it mostly around the house, at the park, and on one mountain bike ride. Worked flawlessly every time. Great little camera! If I could change one thing about this camera, it would make the time lapse interval adjustable, but I am not complaining. My 14 year old son thinks it should be his.

    Good gopro for the majority of users

    Posted .

    Pros: does everything a gopro is supposed to at a fraction of the cost. Cons: no removable battery and time lapse interval not adjustable. It does lack the higher resolution and frame rates of the more expensive gopro's but the majority of gopro users will never need it. If you are a first time gopro owner or are not sure which one to get this is the one for you. I'd rather have 3 or 4 go pro Heros than to have one gopro 4 black or silver.

    Works great

    Bought this for my 12 yr old son. Was concerned that it did not have image stabilization but its no issue. He has used it with a chest mount on his bike and swimming and it takes great video, easy to use. The only two negatives is it only records sound from the person wearing it, other sounds/voices are very muted. Also you have to download the videos to watch them back. Have to dowload the manual also, it only comes with a quickstart guide in the box. Overall very happy for the price.

    Great Intro to the GoPro Family

    Posted .

    I have used it quite often as I have ran a Obstacle Course Race (Spartan) which took GREAT quality video. My 6 year old daughter uses it as well just so get video clips of her so that she can later edit in the free GoPro software. My only complaint, which took away one star, is that I was unaware that the camera did not come out of the case. The back door opens, so that you can change "doors", but the camera will not come out of the waterproof housing unit. Maybe it's a blessing as I will be using it in December when I go snorkeling on the beaches of Puerto Rico.

    A great budget GoPro..

    The GoPro Hero is missing built in WiFi and interchangeable batteries. However, it records 1080p 30fps video while being waterproof and rugged. It's hard to beat this camera for it being only $129. This is the perfect Christmas gift for active children, or anyone new to these cameras.

    Great Buy For the $$$

    Posted .

    I was searching for a reasonably priced "action cam". I figured the quality must be there since so many outdoor programs use them for filming. My kiddo was intended as the primary user so I didn't want to spend hundreds or more on the chance of an oopsie. The Best Buy site had this one for $130 and that's what we paid @ the store. Thus far, we're very pleased with the camera. Works better than many I've seen for twice the price.

    Even though the price is half that of its predecessors there has been no skimping on the quality of this camera. The picture quality is excellent which has come to be the hallmark of GoPro, it opens the possibilities of the small budget vlogger from limited to endless. The ability to add high quality video to my websites has opened new doors and brought new clients to my home based business. Thank you GoPro.

    Great beginner GoPro

    Posted .

    After being a longtime GoPro user, I decided to get one of these cameras to replace some of the ones I already have. My current inventory includes 7 Hero1's and a Hero 960 and I also have a Hero 3 Black and 2 Hero 3+ Black cameras. This unit will be used to replace the first gen cameras. One of the good features of the camera is the battery life, offering over two hours of life. As for the memory cards, you can use up to a 32gig which is plenty for most. The charging port for the camera is located behind the back door with the card slot just above it, and just the note, the camera uses MicroSD cards. For those looking at getting a GoPro without spending a lot of money and just need a camera without all the bells and whistles like 4K, or you are not the most tech savvy person in the world, this is the camera for you.
