My observations using a GoPro.1) Video quality is top notch2) Sound quality is marginal3) If you're not careful, the camera can rattle in the case4) There are a multitude of mounting options, limited only by your imagination5) They are incredibly tough and continue to work when dropped off bikes at speed, out of helicopters, off hot air balloons etc.6) They are an ugly wart on your helmet / bike and you will look a bit of a prat7) The GoPro codec isn't compatible with all video editing programs8) Some of the connector attachments are prone to vibration failure9) You WILL lose some of the little shiny nuts10) GoPro IS the gold standard. Virtually all action footage you see on TV is done with GoProsNick
Why did you select that particular camera for purchase?
Nick, if you could do it over again, would you buy a GoPro or get something else?.
That's a tough one. I really like the aesthetics of the garmin units, but haven't been impressed with the video quality. I with the GoPro had a gimble mounting system, but if I had an ounce of creativity, I could come up with something that would do the trick. I haven't tried the latest versions of GoPro (mine is Hero2), but I hear the sound quality has been improved. I'd probably do the same again. Everything is a trade-off and I don't mind looking like a prat!Nick
Nick, a couple of things about the GoPro audio. If you modify the case (Not the waterproof one), cut an opening where the mic is, get an external mic or get one of those fuzzy things that surround the camera, the audio would be much improved on the Hero 2. I have one and with the external mic..the sound is excellent and it does record in stereo.I bought thisd mone and an additional case, modified the case so I could use the camera without taking it out of the case.I'd buy another GoPro in a heartbeat ;-T
If anyone comes across a good deal on these cams for the Christmas season, please post.I'm in the market.I's like to see more comparisons of video quality.
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5I2hjZYiW9gZPVkvzM8_CwMat knows his stuff and compares camera models quite a lot. For raw footage not modified by YouTube go to: http://www.techmoan.com/You'll see right away how much native video is. He concentrates on car cams because they are quite popular in the UK and the rest of Europe. I believe to help settle insurance claims. Take your time and watch the native footage included with each cam.
Okay, I'm going to watch it but what are your conclusions as to the best to buy?
