This esition. 3 black is their worst one. Thus is coming from a long time go pro fan. I've had everyone so far and this one sucks. Don't get me wrong when it works it's great but that's the problem. It rarely works and this one that I bought a little over a year ago and rarely used is now a 400 dollar mini plastic brick. Bought it may of last year and had issues with it turning itself on and off when you tries to use the wifi. Called customer support and they said update the firmware. Did that still problems but since I didn't use the wifi much and was pretty busy I figured oh well its still useable. Fast forward to a few months ago. Up to this point intermittent use but then I decide ok updated to latest firmware going to use wifi. Now it is frozen solid. Turns on but then freezes and you have to take the battery out to turn off then when you try to turn it back on it freezes again. Even bought a new gopro revommeded memory card. No luck. Gopro customer service says they will gererously allow me to buy a 4 at 40% off. Haha. Won't fix the unit. My fault of course for not insisting they fix it back when I first started having issues. Problem I have is the company knows this is a big problem and still.distributed the product.

Sorry I didn't buy more than one. The price was phenomenal and they are now hard to find at a good price.

Worked great, for the few times I used it. Not sure if there is a better underwater camera for the money. Takes amazing videos and pictures. A little un-related but it does take some time to make your un-edited video pieces into an actual "good" movie or youtube video. Worked great while I used it. Definitely will need to buy other accessories in order to actually use the camera.

This product is fun at first, but after an issue after another issue. The cost of this little box is equivalent to a professional camera. In a reality battery is the worthless piece of crap that will last you 30 minutes, accessories don't stick don't work , shortest piece of dead battery I have ever ran in to. Software constantly having problems, always behind, always drops your work and looses all the data. Camera does not work pass temperature 40 degrees or lower, case opens up by it self, so if you decide to dump it in to the water tape it up as I have before. I have sold this camera to 12 of my friends and they bought it cause I shot lots of crazy outdoor adventure shots @alexanderpugach ( instagram account) Customer service sucks, they make you prove to them why their product is way below any product quality but being sold in massive numbers. If you are not going to shoot lots of outdoor activity and having fun, get a canon rebel T5I, GO PRO camera is really for out door activities, outrated, outdated . Problems, issues ,customer service is way overwhelmed. Camera went from millions of sales to Billions in a matter of years because of crazy advertizements. Videos you see on the Youtube are bulls*** and they used professional editing programs to make them look that way. You literally have to buy 3-4 cameras to get one that willl work how they promice you . The rest you will be returning and sending back to factory over and over. . They offered an LCD screen behind it in year 2015. Really ? after I spend $1000 on stupid accessories , lcd screens and other s***? What is next? Hope they will offer a workable system that works more than few months? Every few month when you are about to shoot something important, you GOPRO goes dead, literally dead. You wonder why? its cause there is a new update and you are 200 miles from a civilization and when it needs an update it doesn't operate from last system , it goes silently stupid dead. Literally. Anyways to spend $400- $500 for this small box that cost GOPRO $50 to make cause its camera is dumber than the IPHONE or ANDROID camera. Its battery is worst than the battery from the old Energizer bunny. Its software is a nightmare, app that never connects or works. This has been a waste of my time. I would of paid twice as much, if this system worked, but GOPRO , oversold, overdid it self in sales, yet don't want to do anything to take care of the problems or its customers. I Give this a Fail, Two thumbs up , fail.

I bought this camera about two years ago. I went almost this entire time not using it because the battery life was absolutely pathetic. I was a bit disappointed after spending well over $100 for attachments, skeleton cases, suction cups, etc... that the thing couldn't even manage to record an hour of video. Fast forward to here recently. I decided after a couple near miss accidents that I should set the GoPro up as a dash cam. Bad idea... to do so, I either needed to hook it up to an external source of power, or put a Battery Bac Pac on it to be able to record my full commute that could take around 30-40 minutes each way. After spending yet MORE money on overpriced GoPro accessories, I have discovered that I can't record my full commute because the unit overheats (even in the skeleton case). It get SO hot, that it actually gave me a burn after it shut down... not even joking. I'll take an IR temp reading of it and update this review with my findings.

The video is nice.... however, it's just simply not a practically usable item. Buy this camera if you want to pay a fortune for accessories just to have to work around it's poor operating constraints.

My setup:

GoPro Hero3 Black Edition recording 1080p@60fps to a SanDisk Ultra 32GB Micro SDHC Class 10 card.
GoPro Brand skeleton case and GoPro brand Battery Bac Pac to augment a GoPro brand battery.

I didn't cut corners and get non GoPro items, so brand "incompatibility" is not an excuse.

Major issues!

The wifi stopped working and when I tried a manual update the camera says "wireless updated failed". After exhausting all troubleshooting possibilities with Gopro phone support I was informed since my unite is more than a year old that I could send the unit in and receive a 20% discount on a new camera. After searching the internet it is apparent many people are having this same issue with the wifi not working. I loved the camera until this happened.
