    Except for battery life everything is as expected. I would love it if I could replace the battery so I could carry another one. Built in battery sucks!

    Small battery / Poor voice commands

    It's a nice camera, but battery does not last through the day of skiing and charging is quirky and slow. Voice commands are nice, but very easy to get wrong - it toggles when saying Stop or Start recording, so there very quite a few times when it was stopped when I wanted it recording and vice versa. I will be upgrading to the Black with replaceable batteries and 3 mics which hopefully will address these shortcomings.

    Because the battery crapped out and wouldn't charge , I felt forced to upgrade to the silver camera that was $100 more

    Camera shoots great video. Just don't like it that the battery is built in.

    Great camera, wish it had more lens options, and the battery can run out quickly when taking videos. Otherwise it works great for what I need.

    After a week of use as a helmet cam it will no longer charge at all. Taking back for a refund. If you're going to buy a Hero Camera spent the extra money for the Black.

    All good with it. Everything works smoothly. The only disadvantage is that the battery doesn't last as expected, but enough for a half a day.

    You cannot access the battery on the silver go pro 7. For that reason alone I decided to exchange for the black 7. If battery isn't important for you, silver is a better price point, and I think the quality of the silver is on par with the black.

    Bought GoPro to film as I was running rapids on Colorado River and take pictures of Grand Canyon from the river. Battery would not hold charge, even when turned off. Got only a few pictures from a once in a lifetime trip. Relying on other folks on the trip for a record.

    Great color. Biggest drawback is an onboard battery. I bought It thinking I could switch with my other cameras battery, but couldn't since the battery is self contained in the camera. So once the battery is out you have to recharge it.

    The camera is outstanding. The app interface is good too. It needs a longer battery life though. Battery ran dead after an hour.

    Well, it looks exactly like HERO5, so the previous accessories still work with the HERO7. I only wish that they could improve on the battery life. It dies so quickly. Have to have extras if those otherwise a great product.

    Issue with Fisheye

    Had some issue with fisheye pictures, but found a way to get through. Just need to zoom the cam to get rid of distortions on the side. Can not replace battery once they die and need to charge on the fly. Hope that battery holds a long time.

    great Camera with a little bit of trade offs

    This camera is really good, it takes excellent video recordings either outdoors or indoors. Video quality looks really crisp and with less noise during indoor shots, sound recording is also very good. The only weakness I have is the battery, which doesn't last for more than 1.2 hours or sometimes less, not sure why, I have turned all wireless radios off to conserve battery power and also make the screen time on less that the average. Over excellent camera and great features.

    My son got this for some youtube streaming he wanted to do. It is not bad. The interface seems a little sluggish and we wish it had a removable battery. It does take nice video. I think next time we will buy the black for the 4k and more features.

    One of the better GoPro’s I’ve found

    I don't have much experience with GoPro's, but I've had a pretty positive one with my HERO7 Silver. From shooting a video to replaying it, it's all a very smooth process. You can also download two apps run by GoPro that help you edit and delete footage, which I find very useful. My one complaint it that the battery seems to get used very quickly, not sure why though. Other than that, I'm satisfied with my GoPro.

    The Hero 7 cam was an outstanding purchase. With videos and images in 4K/HD this camera makes any adventure into an amazing one with memories to always have. Before using, make sure your SD card is compatible. We purchased one off amazon that wasn't compatible. Thankfully our destination had one available for a moderate price. The battery does go a bit quick if the video is taken in all HD.
