dont get me wrong, the quality of the vids is awesome, and the mount options availble allow for vids to be taken in ways normal cameras cant. As a sports filming device, there's no equal. Not to mention its relatively cheap for what it does.
the camera itself cant zoom, mode switching isn't exactly intuitive nor user-friendly, there's no HUD/LCD screen, fisheye lens, can't film jack at night...list goes on, so ya, i don't think of it highly as a camera. Pretty sure other companies will catch on and notice the lack of these things on the gopro and improve on them.
