After using the camera for a couple years I would like to add that the underwater photos and videos turn out great as well. I live on the Gulf of Mexico so I have taken it to the beach many times. I've only had it about 6-7 feet deep but no leaks, rinsed it afterward to keep salt from messing anything up. I took it to a water park and got some awesome pics and videos but unfortunately dropped it on the concrete on the corner of the clasp and the clasp broke. This was not the first time I had dropped it so the case is very durable, but the plastic clasp isn't. Nothing happened to the camera and actually the case is still water tight if I hold it together. I've seen someone who made some little wire replacement clasps, but didn't end up buying one.
I actually ended up buying an Olympus Tough TG-1 since it had a higher resolution and the one thing that the Hero didn't have that was bugging me - A DISPLAY SCREEN! That's why I gave the Hero 4 stars instead of 5, because you never know if the shot came out until you bring it home and plug it into your computer.Read more ›
On the flip side, battery life for rechargeable NiMH batteries is pretty bad. Sound is a disaster and I still haven't been able to flip the display so that it is right side up, but I don't really care. I paid ~$150 so that I could record myself surfing, and I am more than satisfied with my purchase.
The camera I initially received was defective and I worked with their customer support to get a new one. They were not able to reimburse me for the shipping but did offer me a grab-bag of mounts and a discount off of any future purchases, so I am very satisfied with GoPro's customer service as well.
My biggest dilemma before buying was whether or not I would actually fit in the frame, so if you want to see how things look from the nose of a 6'4 board with a tall (6'2) guy riding, click the link in my profile.
Bottom line: it isn't perfect, but it was exactly what I was looking for and I thoroughly enjoy using it.
Everything was pretty easy to set up. It does eat up batteries, but that is ok. The video quality is excellent.
I've already recommended this to a number of friends.
