GoPro HERO 3+ Action Cam (Sliver Edition)

GoPro HERO 3+ Sliver

I am a huge fan of skiing, and making videos. So I wanted a way to capture moments while skiing or swimming or what ever I am doing with clear and high quality video. So I did a ton of research on action cams, and what I found in the inter webs was that GoPro HERO Cams made by +GoPro were the best way to do this. 

So I saved up for the $299 price tag (You can get the lower quality White Edition for $199) and finally purchased my GoPro.



Whats inside???

  • The GoPro HERO 3+ Sliver Edition Camcorder
  • A USB charging cable
  • Waterproof housing
  • A rechargeable battery
  • Assorted mounts
Pros.
  • Camera feels stable and I am not scared to drop it, especially in the waterproof housing
  • Camera doesn't feel bulky when I wear it with the Head Strap (Purchased separately)
  • The GoPro is easy to use!
  • The GoPro App is great and has live streaming with about one second of delay
  • It records the high quality shots that I was looking for when I bought it.

Cons.
  • SD Card and mounts are not included and can get pricy
  • The Camera itself is a bit pricy, but not over priced
  • Sometimes the  camera gets really hot.
  • Although the menu on the camera is simple to use, navigating it  can be a pain, because there is only a forward option, no backward option.
  • The only way to turn off the cameras internal wifi is to take out the battery.
