Great deal, thanks for the post.

I've spoken to Halfords who have no clue as to when they are getting the Black, which can be added to the basket with 10% off but not checked out

With all the action cams out there, These GoPro's are now to much for what they are, I get that they are water proof and all that, And two different things, But for the same price you can get a Nikon D3200 Dslr and all the technology that it holds, So there is no justification for this being 260 quid.

This does loads too, have you seen the time lapse and night lapse?

sorry, but the only similarity between GoPro GP4S and nikon D3200 is that they are cameras & priced similarly
really can't imagine anyone chosing a GoPro to take HQ pictures or the Nikon to stick on their head whilst skiing

agreed, the GoPro's are not cheap, but, if you want quality video, there's not a huge amount of choice ...

I said that they are two different things, Only saying that the technology contained in the Nikon is four fold to what is in the GoPro.
GoPro's are now in that lucky position of being the de-facto standard and never a bad word said, as opposed to the best.
Like the big mobile phone companies are finding, There are some very good cheap alternatives coming out of China that are chipping away at there ability to bank on there de-facto standing, And there ability to charge what they want.

Sorry.... I just don't see your point. Yes, you can get a Nikon with 4 fold the technology for the same price, but so what? They are totally different cameras for two totally different purposes. You can buy a hgv artic unit for the price of a top of the range 4x4 which has much more power... Yet I can't remember the last time I saw a mother dropping her kids off to school in a hgv.

I agree, GoPros are overpriced for what they are, and there are some good alternatives out there from the likes of Sony, Toshiba, JVC, Garmin etc ...

I'm with you on this-the Sony cams are really highly rated, but they're not GoPro branded so don't get the same amount of attention.
I bought an sj4000 because of a post about the new, basic GoPro, and that does all I need-I've already got a dslr with good lenses, so just need something light and waterproof and it does me fine

There you go, Proving my point, Everyone and his dog knows that iPhone's on a technical level are not worth there money.
Be fair, We all know it comes down to brand recognition, It has nothing to do with quality these days, Which is why GoPro spend 10's of Millions every year on advertising for just one product.

Despite the arguments for and against Gopro this is a good price and the cheapest about at the moment .... Especially when purchased via Quidco.
If you are in the market for an action camera then this is up there with the best. If you are looking for a digital SLR, HGV or anything else then please don't buy this.
Nice find and hot from me!!
