    Buy this camera. It is epic.

    Pros
    Utterly indestructable, awesome video quaility, overall very satisfied and good "bang for buck"

    Cons
    After about a year of owning this, I found that it has trouble turning on. I usually have to wait several seconds while holding down the power button, or I have to try several times.

    This is still a great camera, but there are plenty of other options out there now that might be worth a second look; I'm pretty sure you should be able to find a better value on something out there now.

    Pros
    Will never die, takes pretty good photos/videos, easy to find and easy to find accessories/mounting for it, wifi capability

    Cons
    Heavy, poor battery, poor lowlight photography

    Pros
    the camera takes awesome action video. Nice to be able to view your action out on the seamless Bluetooth to a phone is great.

    Cons
    may need a super computer for editing. I tried a well equipped PC for editing it took for ever, but on a MAC things went so much faster.

    I really like this camera. The available mounts is staggering as are the other accessories that you can get. Add in the iphone app and I think it's a pretty complete package. I know this is under "helmet cam" section, but I'm of the opinion that the chest harnesses give the better quality and viewpoint. I like seeing the handlebars and what the rider is doing. The helmet cams are a little odd to me and the looking around is strange in some cases. If you're looking for an action video camera, I'd say this is really your only choice, isn't it? I know there are others and one in particular that gets a lot of positive talk, but it's like the mobile phone discussion, there's the iphone and the other guys. The other guys do some nice things, but they're still "the other guys". This is GoPro's world. Don't try to fight it.

    Pros
    Picture quality
    Features
    Durability
    Available accessories

    Cons
    None

    Let's face it, all action cameras are junk and we really don't need one, but oh we still gotta have it! The GoPro is in fact the best of all of them. I have had issues with mine, look up reviews, everyone has. Sometimes I missa capture bbecause the camera doesn't always do what you tell it to or it thinks you hit the button twice. The through buttons on the waterproof case sometimes continue to hold the button too. I haven't used the 3 so maybe that one is better. All in all, its rare that I don't take it with me on a ride anymore. I prefer 1080p setting without protune. It allows for easier playback on more systems and has fast frame rates.

    Pros
    Great video quality
    Time lapse photography
    Burst
    Waterproof
    Mount ability and variation
    Bluetooth

    Cons
    Battery life
    Sound
    Design
    Shape
    Battery life
    Piggyback battery life
    Price
    Low light capture needs to be a slow frame rate

    IF filming with a chesty mount camera upsidew and film in upside down mode. This will give you the best angle for awesome riding. Or under saddle aimed at rear tire if your looking for some interesting b roll.

    Pros
    Great video. easy to use.

    Cons
    Bulky

    Just started using this but it is great so far. So many things you can do with it and such a wide variety of mounting options allows you to do capture pretty much any kind of shot you are looking for. Great quality!

    Pros
    Everything

    Cons
    Complex if not familiar with cameras

    If you're looking for an action camera, I'd go with this opposed to ConturHD. Love the ease and setting options. Catches great moments in both video or photo. Always a treat to have the kids wear them. Pretty neat!

    Pros
    Great camera, high resolution settings and frame rates for video. Also for photos, time lapse and burst settings. Tough case, download the free app for your phone and studio editing software. All firmware and software updates are free. Great for catching any action.

    Cons
    None, I'm pleased.

    The GoPro Hero 3 is by far the greatest action camera I can imagine on the market. It is so easy to mount on anything; I currently have mounts on my handlebar, helmet, and even right next to my wheel. I also use the camera for skiing, and have mounts on my skis for a sweet angle. Such a great camera!

    Pros
    Lightweight
    Easy use
    Extremely high resolution
    Not too expensive
    Seemingly indestructible
