    "5 Star...Hero 5...The camera is a good "action" cam, but the app definitely is not, takes way too long to load, can be buggy, and does not always allow you to perform the desired and needed tasks (tells me the camera is busy when I need to change a parameter) I use this camera remotely almost all the time, meaning it is not within reach during shoots, so many missed opportunities because of this....The only thing I didn't like was that I couldn't upload or save any videos that were shot in 4k if they were any longer than 8.5 minutes so I basically lost a lot of footage before I called GoPro customer service and they explained to me that I wasn't able to upload or save the footage in 4K due to a memory issue so I've been recording longer video's in 1080p and I've really been enjoying it."

    "Hero 7...Love it...Everything is great for this camera as the previous Go pro hero cameras, the only disappointment from this camera was the livestream, if you want to share your adventure livestream to your Facebook friends or other social media, you will have to be near a WiFi or have a hotspot installed to your mobile phone in order for the livestream to be functioning....It is a fantastically capable device that has no trouble keeping up with fast action as is customary of the renowned action cam line, but a shockingly high price and only a couple convenience features make this a tough sell to all but the most devoted action videographers."

    "Love it...My Hero...I've enjoyed playing and using this camera however I've recently had difficulty transporting what's on the camera to a computer folder to be able to present to other people....There's also "Medium" and "Wide" settings which, while creating a fisheye effect, allow you to place the camera on a tripod very close to the action and still capture it all!"
