  2. Very Impressed Review by Jeff

    I ordered this on a Tuesday night and this Camera was waiting for me at home on Thursday. I took it for a spin into town mounted on the inside of my windshield of my car. It worked great. Can't wait to take it on my next Quad trip or even snorkling in Hawaii this year. Thanks Gopro for an excellant product.

  3. excellent Review by DaveT

    We bought two in April 2009 for use on our whitewater rafting trips. Easy to use. Battery life seems OK as we can fill the 2G card before power runs out....and that is with a lot of stop and go filming
    Good, not excellent video. Sound is pretty immediate area only. Can't really hear voices (other than screams :) ) from five feet in front over the crashing boils..... in calm waters, mic picks up more. Download to the computer for 1 hour of video takes at least 30 minutes over the USB.
    All that being sad,,, HUGE thumbs up for this product. Makes lasting memories.

    PS, I came back to this web site to buy a third to use as a gift to the guys that got us started with waterwater rafting. If you are reading this Mark,,, I,,, errr,,,uuhhmmmmm.... mean someone else. (Posted on 29/07/2009)
