    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.

    Not bad

    My 7 year old son wanted a video recorder for xmas. I thought it would be more entertaining to get a go pro with a head strap to see his videos from his point of view. Having problems with the head strap. The go pro takes a minute to figure out. It's easy to switch modes without realizing it. Once we have learned it, it should prove to be worthwhile. I can not give a review from an advance users point. It took a good video as I was holding it when the family went down a water slide in a raft. For a first, I'm satisfied.

    Great Wide angle

    This is my first GoPro camera, I am using Nikon D90 as my primary camera. No doubt this camera has a great wide angle, but everything has their flaws. This camera corrects exposure every now and then. So, when you are shooting a video in cloudy weather, expect your video to have light and dark tones in between, which is too bad. Also, when clicking pictures in the night, no doubt it's awesome, but includes a lot of grains that are really hard to edit.

    Not as simple as I hoped

    I purchased the Go Pro Hero 7 thinking it would be very simple and easy to use, but I was wrong. First I was not aware I needed a microSD that was not included with the purchase. It really makes no sense these days that you buy a product and need to buy multiple pieces for it to even work. Secondly I could not get the voice command to work and the instructions that come with the camera only cover the basic camera and hardware. I love the pictures and videos but it will take me some time to figure out all the 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 camera itself is great at what it does. But I feel like I should have purchased the go pro hero black as the silver is lacking a lot of the features that I would have liked to use. I didn’t do enough research ahead of time and the sales person I dealt with wasn’t knowledgeable enough to help me make the right decision.

    I purchased this recently for a trip to Tahiti where I knew I was going to be doing a lot of underwater photography. Camera worked great very compact and easy to carry. Touchscreen and settings are all easy to understand and adjust

    Nice camera but your phone has to handle it.

    The GoPro itself is very nice. Its the smallest camera i have ever had. It travels well and can fit in any pocket. However one initial problem i had was that my phone was too old. For me to control the gopro from my phone was not going to work. Make sure you check the specs on your phone.

    Brought this to Hawaii for a family vacation. It was to easy to capture all the fun moments from the goat farm to the beach to zip lining to hiking. The only thing I wish it had was exchangeable batteries instead of having to recharge the unit itself.

    This is a great camera for kids. I have an eight-year-old son who likes making YouTube videos. It is very small and easy for him to use. It works well under water as we have used it snorkeling. It’s a little pricey for a kids camera but it has held up well.

    We aren’t sure about how we want to attach this to our helmet. We definitely will use this a lot, both snowmobiling and riding side by sides in the mountains. The only reason I gave this 4 stars is that it would be great for it to include a helmet mounting bracket.

    This was a quick last minute purchase to capture outdoor photos during adventure excursions during a recent vacation (water activities, zip lining, hiking). Needed to pull a few you tube videos to support set up but otherwise memories are captured.

    A GoPro is such a fun product to own if you're looking to capture the most adventurous moments. Returned this one and bought a black version from the GoPro site since they offer same price and included a dual charger, beanie, extra battery, and SD card

    I received the GoPro 7 Silver as a birthday gift for an upcoming trip to Iceland. I used it daily and it took amazing pictures and videos. Once in a while it would freeze up but after resetting it worked out fine. All in all a great purchase

    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.

    Well, I have to learn how to use first and get me a better phone, cause I still have a flip phone and till I do I'll figure out how this thing works. But I think that if I paid a fairly high price for something it outta be good

    Love the Camera, Battery Life is the only downfall

    Absolutely love the quality and have been floored with the image stabilization. Word to the wise is to ensure you pick up spare batteries as well however, the camera is not able to be charged in the case while in use.

    Bought for my stepson. He is 9 and is starting to take interest in making videos for YouTube. Good for beginners he needs a little help but for the most part it’s good for what we need it for

    This is my first GoPro and it was surprisingly easy to set up and use. I'm still getting used to the features and looking for useful accessories, but it should be a very handy camera.
