I'm curious, why do GoPro posts keep getting voted down? The price is as good as you're gonna get at the moment as there's no way of knowing if it'll drop to 230 again and is always usually 290 or 320. Be interested if someone posts who has voted it cold, as HUKD generally seems quite random with what's hot or cold.

Yeah HUKD is a bit funny about these. Ever since they dropped to 230, they've not managed to get any heat if they're more than that. Really interested in getting one but I'm questioning why there's some many of these 'refurbished' units?

It used to be 201 not a while ago...

Nearly £300 for a second hand camera the size of a matchbox?? You've got to be having a laugh!

What are these like in low light? Any chance they can pick up the brighter stars in the sky?

Really not sure why this always gets voted down. I bought one of these a week or so ago. It was immaculate/mint condition, had the protective plastic all over it, all new mounts/fixings, comes with 12 months warranty, all the normal support from GoPro, it was delivered really quick, yet its a big saving over a brand new one. I can't really see what the negatives are/cold votes are for. Yes, it has been cheaper in the past (likely due pricing error) but this is the cheapest you can get your hands on a pretty much brand new GoPro 5 right now, so what's the problem?

When we were in Asia last year a guy had a GoPro (earlier version than the 5) and using it for pictures, after manually adjusting settings, it picked up really quite good starfield shots. Far better than the naked eye with longer exposures on a tripod. I was really impressed as I always just thought GoPro's were just action cameras. I've attached a photo that was taken with it, keep in mind there was a lot of clouds, a bit of artificial lights about and that was just the GoPro sitting in the sand. He showed us shots he'd taken with it in proper darkness places with clear skies and setup better and you could see the milky way and all. I just think it's a really good added bonus to the GoPros features. There's probably decent tutorials online for how to set the manual settings to get good results.

Video isn't great in low light, but it's not designed for that type of video and, to be fair, it takes pretty specialist equipment to get any sort of decent video in low light.

@traylee check the comments for the settings this guy used

@takkischitt - Thanks for that. I wasn't aware they could do timelapse too. Interesting, but I'm after real-time footage. Already have plenty of timelapse capability here. It was a long shot, and I'm looking into the more specialized/expensive options now (actually have been for a while, but reluctant to pull the trigger if there is a chance to find a cheaper alternative). Looks like the Sony A7s (or it's relations) could be the answer, although it's a more expensive option than I'd like, but they are fairly amazing cameras for low light applications.


Thanks again!
