    Get the Black

    Onboard microphone is garbage like all GoPros. There is no 3.5mm microphone jack. Onboard battery last about 30 minutes. You can use an external battery pack with a USB-C cable or use an external microphone with a USB-C to 3.5mm jack adaptor but not both. You have to pick a battery pack or microphone. The adaptor I used was for a cell phone and was a splitter type that had both a USB-C and a 3.55mm jack, however, the GoPro would only recognize one or the other. My advice: spend the extra $100 to buy the Black. The Hero 7 Black comes with swappable batteries and a 3.5mm microphone jack.

    I purchased the GoPro for my husband for his birthday. When we took it out of the box and followed each step it worked for about 30 seconds then wouldn't turn back on. We had to return it and wait to have a new one delivered to us. The 2nd one did the same thing! Finally we went to the store frustrated and they had to open boxes to find one that would work. Now that we have a working device it's great and does exactly what it is suppose to do! I was very surprised that the directions are so vague and it didn't come with a manual. The online version is much better and should come with each product.

    Pretty Good Product with Small Screen

    This is a pretty good camera with a small screen. It's almost like you need tiny hands to use the touch screen. I ended up advancing the screen many times and then going back and forth to get to the screen that I want to see. The directions are fine if you have hours to read through and figure everything out. It could be faster to just go to YouTube to watch a video. I'm still trying to figure this camera out. I brought the protection plan so I'm not worried about anything going wrong. It looks really small but you get used to it.

    I got this camera to record exchanges. The first time I tried to record the camera said it was recording. When I went back to review the recording there wasnt one. I'm not sure exactly what happened. This has happened a few times. Also it often says it cannot connect to the wifi or my phone. I dont need it for much but it has been super frustrating to use. Not sure it was worth the money but it works for what I need.

    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.

    Not what I expected

    When getting the go pro I researched the different capabilities and sound specs. I wanted a great device to record everyday explorations and even have a device to record at home videos. What I didn’t realize on this particular go pro model is that it only has wide view lense. It curved on the edges and looked weird on doorways and ceilings.

    Short Videos

    Its great for taking short videos in 4K. Transferring everything to your computer or using it through your phone is a very big hassle. Charging the GoPro takes time and doesn't last very long charged. I would not recommend this one to anyone. If your looking for a GoPro, go with the Hero 7 Black.

    Great picture, horrible battery!

    Bought this for a cruise and it takes great pictures and videos, but the battery life is sub-par and doesn’t last much more than an hour of constant use. The other downside is the camera overheated after about 15 mins of 4K video. I will likely buy a black edition for the interchangeable battery

    Bought this GoPro to replace a older one that only did 1080p. In setting up the camera I could not figure out how to take the battery out. After a quick Google search I learned the white and silver version now have a built in battery. I returned it the next 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.

    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.

    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.

    Overheats during semi long recording sessions and the good sd cards are expensive (I paid another $90 for one) other than that great recording and it definitely does what it’s suppose to do for the most part.

    Was good and useful for the time being but doesn’t hold a charge for very long. Also, would freeze up from time to time. This was my first GoPro so a good learning experience though.

    Should’ve got the black one since this hardly has an accessories to go with it and has way more cons than pros but it’s nice quality and easy to use.

    Overall a decent product for the money however I wish I would have spent the extra and got the top quality as this product has very limited options.
