    Most unreliable GoPro Camera ever!!!

    • Written by shane S from worksop

    I purchased a GoPro Hero7 Black from my local Apple store and a week later I’m returning it, the hero7 is great when it works, unfortunately it crashes and freezes so often it’s almost unusable, I also own a Hero3+ Back and never had a problem with that for the 5 years I’ve owned it, so you can imagine how disappointed I was when I purchased the Hero 7 Black only to find it regularly freezing up and crashing, I spoke to GoPro tech support, I confirmed I had the correct micro SD Card and I also confirmed I’d done The latest firmware update etc etc etc, the tech guy just said yep we’ve had some issues with some Batches of Hero7 then recommend returning it to the shop for refund or exchange has I’d had it for only a week, after reading some online GoPro blogs the problems I’ve experienced seem to be quite common, it’s a shame because the cameras features are good.

    Apple Like Garden of Eve, and Pricey.

    The Good:
    The GoPro Hero 7 Black is the top gun in the GoPro family of camera's. It has that same Apple Like software and hardware integration. THAT is what makes up a large part of the GoPro Hero 7 Black's cost. You get a seamless integration into the GoPro Cloud *.
    As well as fully compatible IOS or Android Apps. 2.7K wide mode with zoom and stability control captures the action (ex. Ice Hockey Game) smooth and with enough "image" to allow you to edit, zoom etc that you have a decent enough picture after processing. Sound is good, but the cats meow is really the stability and motion capture, GoPro hit it out of the park.
    The Bad
    It's way too pricey. The battery is exactly an hour worth of video at 4k or 2.7k. The Camera really heats up if capture a full 60 minute video. It occasionally will freeze or shut down on you when running hot, it's a known GoPro glitch regardless of camera. The accessories are overpriced, and the cloud service is buggy. Many times, when uploading to the cloud, it will fail, very frustrating.
