Great price, hot

same price in Currys if you prefer going in-store.

Hero 3+ Black is at the £250 mark now. Definitely worth considering as well.

Get a webcam, PC, keyboard, mouse, generator, small monitor and some diesel. Put in rucksack. Sorted. Saved you about a fiver on the price of the hero

Is this off Viz?

These should carry a health risk. I usually spend my day at the library reading books or maybe having a coffee at the local cafe. Strap one of these to my head and a few seconds later I'm either mountain biking down Mow Cop or off piste skiing in Chill Factore. Far too dangerous in my opinion.

Isn't this the camera where u could do fish eye and 360° turns pictures in fish eye too? Or am I just stupid ?

Those crap lens distorts picture a lot, and they did that purposely to make sure all videos taken up high, would bend horizon (which is always flat no matter how high you go) . You can modify and have normal picture with those GoPro, but have to spend extra for lens and do some DIY.

No its just distorts a picture and nothing completely else, and yes its uses fish eye lens.
All cameras have some "fish eye" effect and distorts picture at some point, but not insane like this. Its has been done not because to see more.
Anyway good price tough including crap, stock lens.

Decent, but consider that John Lewis currently sell the Hero 3+ Silver edition for £199.

A generation newer and higher up the range for £40.

Look at comparisons in footage before you take the plunge.

Heat for price, however there are far better action cameras out there with better image quality and generally cheaper. Don't buy into the brand hype

If there are better cameras cheaper then surely this is an expensive poor camera?? begs the question why you've given heat to the price.

looked into these for a while but couldn't justify the price for what would just be a toy to me really.
picked up an SJ400 on ebay for £60 and it's pretty sweet, quality is extremely impressive and the budget it perfect for the hobbyist bits I'll use it for.
worth checking out.

A pity I don't do exciting enough things to warrant the purchase of a Go Pro!

You can check Drift Ghost HD instead of Hero 3 +

in this age of latest tech and supposed mores law this is a high price for a cam I think. but that is just my opinion

The camera itself does not cost much to make. The rest is just marketing, hype and profits to the company directors.

Get a SJ400, which is better in some ways, and pay for the product itself only.

PRENDY

same price in … same price in argoshttp://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/5636431.htm

plus postage, anyway who will buy from Argos over amazon?

I would recommend looking at the Sony HDR AS range if image quality is a priority. They use the exmor sensor and have great image stabilisation. A cheap option would be a Mobius action cam. Not bad quality and image is good, for £50 ish

Reason I voted hot was because for this specific camera it is a good price. The fact I think they are over rated is irrelevant as I am basing my vote purely on what it did cost as apposed to what it costs now

Where? I don't see it for that price on Amazon.

Another recommendation for the SJ 4000- uses all the same mounts as the Gopro, spare batteries are £4 a piece ( and you can now get battery charges and a battery for £8) and it cost me 60 quid from China. See my sample footage: m.youtube.com/wat…ruY

What kind of people buy this when there's an identical SJ4000(wifi version) for near 1/3 of the price? In fact SJ4000 is a LOT better due to having a preview screen.

Lucky you've filmed it to show everyone what a great life you are having.

+1 for the Mobius action cam

Mobious vs SJ4000?

Great deal! Hot.

I know a lot of people get the SJ4000 copy but the image quality and stabilization is not as good as GP.

Dan

struggling to see how this has got so hot oO

really not as good a deal compared to other GP's - as correctly pointed out by others ...

Where would one buy the SJ camera please?

I've bought a sj4000 after watching this very good review techmoan.com/blo…tml and I'm pretty impressed, intend to use it for spear fishing amongst other things. I was a bit worrried when I received mine as there are dodgy copies of the SJ4000 which I found quite Ironic considering itself is a copy (albeit a good one) of this camera. The reviewer has links to genuine sellers so not to worry. It's about £55 and you get a lot of accessories. Very pleased.

Got mine from this seller on eBay link but they're one of many. Mine was fine but you could also use the links on the techmoan review above if you don't like using eBay.

Nice

These cameras are brilliant. And not just for action footage. I did the following on holliday with just holding the camer in my hand - non of the fancy attachments, 1st attempt with the hero 3 black:

youtu.be/WOa…mbA

Get your "sjcam" SJ4000 as foxoffer have now registered it via their ebay store / site / via the techmoan links..
or see below, ..there are several more genuine sellers via drone / quadcopter forums, quite a long thread on that!
So many copies of them, mine came the other day, good but no in depth manual with it, worth the money, cheap enough to go on the kids helmet for ski-ing or whatever & for use as a car cam...

Mine is the latest branding shown, which is to deal with all the fakes around, foxoffer offer firmware upgrades ongoing, ...but their twitter support is lousy, better to go to a user forum.

Q: Where to buy 100% original product?
A: Right now we know about 2 sellers that sells only original products:
FoxOffer: foxoffer.com/sj4…..l
[WIFI version]: foxoffer.com/sjc…..l
(ebay store): ebay.com/itm…53a
BangGood: banggood.com/SJ4…tml
[WIFI version]: banggood.com/SJc…tml
