Alright.... I'll ignore a few more hero releases then. The 4 serves my purposes.....I just really like the waterproof body on the newer ones.
Just bought a Hero 5 Black from Tecobuy which had a problem with the front LCD panel, called GoPro and they sent me a shipping lable, replaced it within one week.
I bought a gimbal these guys recently and question why the item was opened and marked and one of the GoPro mount was missing. Their response was they regularly open to do testing and the mark was to mark off serial number as warranty was not covered by manufacture but through them. Instead of sending me a complete replacement for what seems like a refurbished or second hand item, they are sending me just the missing bracket without explanation why it was missing in the first place. If your stuff comes brand new, great. But if there are any problems be prepared to have a slow ping pong like communication with them through their resolution process. I won't be buying from them anytime soon as their interpretation of "new" is open box and missing stuff.
Thank you for this. Was considering buying for use in a car on track and have no decided against it. My 5 black will do, although the livestream feature would have been nice!
Hero 4 Silver one of the best ones IMO!
