GoPro HD Helmet HERO
- Product Review (submitted on February 25, 2011):
I bought the SD camera close to a year a go to use in my car and on my sons helmet but I have had very little use of it yet. The specs on the cmera statethat you should get aout 3 hours of recording time on a set of lithium batteries but the truth is that you will get at most about 30 minutes of recording time. That's 7 - 9 dollars every 30 minutes to use this camera.
I did give support every opertunity to correct the problem. I sent my camera back twice (whch they said they replaced with a new one yet they had the same markings on them that I put on them) and finaly made them send me another one before I sent the last one back. The result... I now have two cameras that go through a set of batteries every 30 minutes. Their response... "...have you tried lithium bateries?".
Bottom line... if you dont mind canging bateries every 30 minutes go for it. Otherwise, dont waste your money.
