I am thinking about getting a GoPro and wanted to see if any of you amateurs could answer a few of my questions.
Are you happy with your purchase?
How often are you using the camera?
Are you editing your videos or just saving them to your pc?
Would you rather buy a brand new 3 black or 2 GP 2's for = $
What mounts are you using?
Do you think its a waste of time?
What do you carry your equip in on the slopes?
A lot of people having trouble with the black one and poor battery life. I use a roll bar mount (handle bar mount is better) and a telescopic pole about 1.5m in length and carry is on the side of my backpack.
Today a friend and I were riding. He had the 3 and I had the 2, my battery lasted quite a bit longer, however he was playing with the wifi which in my eyes isn't a big selling point.
As far as the purchase of the 2, very happy. Currently using the headstrap, handlebar (for pole), and made my own little mount for holding in my right hand while riding. Only issue for me is that I have a slower laptop so editing is a pain.
How often are you using the camera?Everytime i hit the slopes
Are you editing your videos or just saving them to your pc?Im editing them using trackAxPC
Would you rather buy a brand new 3 black or 2 GP 2's for = $ i bought the Hero 3 Black edition the only cons is short battery life on cold weather but i fixed that by buying a battery pack and the Wasabi battery 2x
