There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
My sons wanted to record their NERF wars. This seemed like a logical choice for catching the action on video from a non-first-person-perspective.
I installed the software on my WIndows 8.1 machine and the videos automatically transfer over. I have a MacBook Pro and I wanted the videos to be copied there as well. It turns out that the GoPro Hero3: White Edition didn't work on my MacBook Pro. It turns out that the GoPro requires USB2 and has issues with USB3 ports. I purchased an awesome USB2.0 HUB and my problems were over. It works great on the MacBook Pro.
Finally, and this is the best part for me. I can set up the GoPro Hero3: White Edition to use Wifi. From my Android phone, I can control the camera remotely via WiFi.
I can start, stop, and preview (with a tiny bit of delay) live video. The video is saved locally to my
SanDisk Ultra 32GB UHI-I/Class 10 Micro SDHC card which Amazon recommended I purchase. It was the right choice. I also purchased the
EEEKit 8-in-1 Accessories Kit for Gopro Hero4 kit. I haven't used all the things, but it's a great buy considering the cost of each component individually.
Great Camera. Get one.
After using this for some weeks, I can say I love this camera and the possibilities.
1.: What's in the box?: You receive the camera with the waterproof housing, plus an instruction booklet and a quick start guide. In addition, you receive a micro-USB cable, plus some mounts and assorted 'thingies.'
2. Aesthetic?: Well, who really cares how this looks since the point is to capture your desired personal aesthetics! But, compared to some of the other cameras I have seen, this is a small package, and is cleverly designed.
3. Use?: The point of the camera is to get it working. The waterproof casing has been redesigned from the previous model. It does seem very well-done and is supposedly able to survive to 130 feet. I have not tested it to any depth with the camera inside. However, I have taken the housing and placed it under water without a problem. (I will update this when I get the chance for some waterproof filming).
The camera itself has basically three buttons. One for the power/mode, one for the camera to start taking video or pictures (at the top) and a side button which powers wireless. The wireless function works in conjunction with the App, which I used with an Iphone. The app is fantastic! You can control the camera remotely and change the desired function (video, burst, lapse and single pictures, plus whatever function suite the users purposes). The best thing is the ability to see a preview (except in certain modes like a time-lapse) and the ability to see the pictures and video on the app. Fantastic.
The pictures with the edition I purchased are good, not great, given the 5 MP capability and the close-in build for pictures (I didn't but this to take long-range pictures). However, the video in HD (and this should be changes to 1080 as the default is a bit less) is absolutely gorgeous. Stunning is the word. The sound is also great, even with the waterproof housing on. I could still hear myself, others and the sounds of the activity clearly.
The wireless function relies on setting up an internal network between your mobile device and the camera, though I did not find this difficult at all. The only time I had difficulty getting the camera connection was during some very cold weather, and once the camera was warm this went away. The battery lasts about 2 hours with consistent use, which is pretty good, although I could nurse the camera by turning things on and off when the opportunity present itself.
At first, I did not like having to use a micro-SD card, but this is actually okay with an adapter for actual use and allows makes the camera smaller than the previous model.
Overall, so far, I am very pleased with the camera and what it allows me to accomplish without too much difficulty. I suggest that a buyer purchase the grabbag of extra mounts and the lens caps as well. Great item. Hopefully I do not encounter some of the difficulty that others have had with the camera. Except for the above, this has not happened!

You may view some of the footage I've taken on my youtube channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwPi2SE9xltd_4sFJ_AiT0Q and see for yourself. All video was edited with a free open-source program called Kdenlive. Some of these videos appear to be of low quality, but this IS NOT due to the camera's inabilities and is due solely to me lowering the sampling rate on my video editor for the sake of smaller file sizes for faster upload to YouTube. The camera shoots great hi-res video.
If you're into motorcycling or other action sports and want a camera to record your exploits, this one can't be beat...unless it's by GoPro's newer model!
I recently downloaded the android GoPro app for my phone, allowing me to preview and control the camera remotely via the built-in WiFi connection.
I am extremely happy with the included adhesive helmet mount, as well as the handlebar mount made by Akron, both have provided me with lots of good footage. This weekend, I will be testing the camera with a Picatinny rail mount from my deer stand when/if I see Bambi...and I am stoked about it!
