    I bought it for my friend's son as he just started riding a bike and I thought this toy would be a great motivation for him to practice riding. I had to test it myself so I took it out for shooting (action pistol shooting). I now want one for myself! I mounted on my cap using a tripod adaptor and a 1/4" screw and it stays on firmly. I do not feels its weight at all. The image is brilliant and I love its slow motion mode, made in Gopro studio software. I can analyze my shooting better than videos taken by someone else standing feet behind me. It is a little pricy but I can justify the price. It is a nice toy.

    The previous generation of this product had 24p recording capability. But now you have to buy the "Black" version to get 24p. Fewer features at the same price.

        Have loved mine so far. Purchased the lcd screen as well to help with composing shots.Battery life sucks but I guess that is what we will have to live with, even the Gopro 4 doesn't have great battery life. Just grab a few extra batteries for your longer trips. I got mine with $ discount at ------------

        Bought for a road trip. Handy for all kinds of things, and easy enough to tape/rig to most any surface (hooked it to a uhaul, in the car, to a kayak, etc). Battery life could be better, but otherwise very satisfied.

            Way more than expected, I didn't realize that the camera had the capability to change from an awesome wide angel to what I call a normal shot and the image quality is impeccable. The other features that impressed me were the wireless viewing of the images and mounds of accessories!!

                    What a pleasure, a perfect addition to my photography or more precisely a superb video tool. So small yet so good and easy to manage and capture all the action under any conditions. Would highly recommend this product.

                        Great action camera! It's amazing how versatile it is. Going to a pool and want to take a few pictures? Great! Want to make a killer ski video? Check! The wide angle is great and video quality too. Images are crisp and clear. Sometimes I use it to take "regular" pictures too, but in these cases, I felt that the color contrast is not that great. But again, it's an action camera, not a point-and-shoot.

                                The previous generation of this product had 24p recording capability. But now you have to buy the "Black" version to get 24p. Fewer features at the same price.

                                  I use the Gopro Hero3+ for video often, it is a must for action shots.
