Very expensive but it is worth it

I have been debating about buy or not a Gopro, I used a action can before from another brand, but it just didn't do the trick for me
Having such a little camera with this image quality it's amazing, i love it so far, sound still a little disappointing but external mic will help, I've been use it for a couple of days since I got it in the mail. The hiper stability it actually pretty good, but not as "fantastic" like it is in the promo add. Sucks that such an expensive device doesn't come with that many good accessories, just basic stuff, the main holding case is a pain in the a** i bet a few have broke a nail trying to open this case, i have a 32gb 10 class Samsung SD card, gives me around 1hour on 4k60fps and 1080p60fps almost 2h (I rather use this setting) when you record in 4k the camera feels a little hot for my like, I don't really know why, but it gets hot pretty quickly, touch screen very responding, app with android doesn't really work that good but I am very new and begginer with this brand, files are pretty big, after certain amount of time for some reason it will split the clip (on 4k setting) why this happends I don't have any idea. The charging port it's so convenient and charge very fast, suck that doesn't include a power brick (I'm using my LG fast charging)
Over all i like it a lot, I don't regret that much buying such an expensive Action Cam, seen at the competition with Xiaomi and YI with very affordable prices, but at the end everybody falls into the "Big Guys in the Game"

Hero 7 Black needs bugs fixed by GoPro

Camera is mounted on my Bell Vortex motorcycle helmet. Bought to document upcoming Colorado tour. The good: 1)The Hero 7 Black can be run without a battery for extended hours using a seperately purchased waterproof USB-c cable. 2)Hero programing allows for a default Loop mode so when set to Max will fill the HD card continuously then rewrite over the oldest files. 3)The items i've received were new and in excellent condition. The Bad: 1)The Hero 7 Black has software and hardware deficiencies. a)Apparently does not have a capacitor to allow time to shut down recording and save to the HD in event of power loss. b) Does not store all current configuration settings in eprom, therefore it loses it's recording status and zoom settings and has to be manually restarted when power is restored. c)There are conflicts with Loop mode and the Quick Capture option so if you use both it often will quit recording 10 seconds into the first file and the camera responds irradically then not restarting with the on/off button or record button but once out of 3 or four times. d)All software is up to date 1.07, new approved HD, Factory reset and reformatted. Works fine in normal video modes with capture option. Loop mode only works correctly if capture and voice commands are off then the Hero 7 must be turned off manually before unplugging power or on manually after repowering as file corruption will occur otherwise losing your last footage and as everyone knows in an accident that's the video you want most.Read full review...


Use Protune!

Great footage once you know how to use it properly. I made the mistake of setting temp to 4000K and the blue sky was overly saturated and getting digital artifacts. I just switched it to Native and that looks the best for editing and produces flat color plus has smallest digital noise to signal ratio in low light.Read full review...

Best camera for travel

This is my first time using a GoPro, it is easy to use, lightweight and quite easy to carry around even just in your pants pockets. The image quality is amazing, much better than what I was expecting, since camcoders tend to have an aesthetic for their video, the GoPro definitely stands out in image quality.
It has several setups depending on your needs, like high speed fps for slow motion, 4K resolution, etc. It has built in timelapse setup which is easy to use.
I would definitely recommend this camera for any beginner trying to make content with high quality. A great investment, in my opinion.

In order to maximize best results, we should figure out which is the best camara setting for the environment and kind of activity. YouTube has a lot of tutorials about it, so before giving a bad review, first play with the camera settings and know the equipment. Definitely it is not perfect but the Hero 7 shows a huge leap from precedesors in audio quality and video, stabilization is awesome.Read full review...

Worth it!

Moving from GoPro Hero 2 to the Hero 7 Black and nothing to say but WOW! Video quality is outstanding. The smoothness of the video is amazing! I went hiking/trail running and was simply holding the camera in my hand and couldn't believe how smooth it was.

Can't wait to go snorkeling with it in Cozumel next year. Expecting some great underwater video.

Highly recommend!

Excellent Action Cam

Have been itching to get this for a while. Hypersmooth stabilization a plus point in considering the purchase, which has enabled the recorded content to be close to like having a gimball for recording. However sometimes in the recorded videos you can see the digital stabilization smoothening out videos more than required and you could spot that in the videos. Haven't tried submerging in water yet. Wide angle shots are beautifully captured and does well in sunlight. Howevet low light is it's Achilles heel. So don't expect much clear footage in dark. Also having an external CPL filter reduces a lot of glares that could be see during the daytime footage. Overall a great cam at great price.Read full review...

GoPro hero 7 black

Once you figure out all the setting it’s pretty great. Only problem is very poor battery life! You would think something that cost so much they could figure out how to make a battery last longer.
