I contacted support who said there was nothing they could do and the problem was with the courier. Well given that I’ve had no confirmation and no money taken from my account I’m assuming you haven’t got to the courier stage yet. They placed an escalation on my case but advised me support aren’t in charge of escalations and couldn’t tell me who was. They couldn’t advise me when I would hear back, when my camera would be delivered or if my camera would be here before Christmas and they are now closed for the weekend - fantastic.

If you're lamenting the lack of hardware upgrades, the Hero 8 still has something for you. Alongside the new camera, GoPro is announcing a line of "mod" accessories, similar to Motorola's Moto Mods. At time of writing, these include a Media mod (a frame with shotgun mic built in, HDMI connectivity, 3.5mm audio in and two cold shoes); a light mod (200 lumens, tuned for video); and a Display mod that adds a fold-out screen so you can frame yourself while looking at the camera. (As a bonus, it has its own battery built-in.) Mods will cost between $49 and $79 each.
Somehow the cancellation of the original camera order failed so I later on received both cameras and was charged for both. Naturally I contacted them and as requested sent one of them back in order to receive the £285 of the £570 I just spent. By tracking the return I saw it was delivered back to them safely. After waiting for a month I realised that I never was given back the refund and instead had been charged another £285.... I have at this been charged £855 for one GoPro Hero8.

What is the best knock off GoPro?


First of all, the camera itself is physically different from last year's version. Most notably, the Hero 8 now has the mounting fingers built in (meaning, the "pins" that slide into the top of a pole). This means you'll no longer need a "frame" mount to connect it to accessories. This also means easy access to the battery and memory card at all times. Another perk is that this reduces the total footprint of the camera when mounted.
If you were hoping for some more practical updates, like improved battery life, then there's not really any news here. While the Hero 8 has an updated battery, it's still 1,220mAh as before. (The difference is that it offers a higher max output, which is needed for some of the new features.) The end result is still the same old "hour or so" of active use. If you're only shooting moments here or there, that's typically going to see you through a few hours of turning it on, off, tapping around and, of course, shooting.
GoPro is leading the charge toward consumer-created virtual reality (VR) environments, and their first VR-ready cameras make it happen with what they’ve dubbed “spherical capture,” which is pretty accurate, given the 360° field of view they record. VR is still a nascent technology, but it’s definitely the future. If you’re an early adopter, you’ll want to pick up a GoPro with spherical capture.
TimeWarp (GoPro's "hyperlapse" feature) has also been refreshed. This time there's an auto mode that promises to take the guesswork out of which speed your video-lapses are recorded. With the Hero 7, you had to set a speed (2X, 5X, etc.) and see what you got. Now, GoPro claims the camera will use the sensors to detect motion and adjust that speed for you. There's also a "real-time" button on-screen, so you can jump out of TimeWarp into regular video. It's a neat effect, akin to adding a slo-mo section to a regular video.
Look online for GoPro videos. If you’re having trouble deciding between GoPro cameras, look online for sample videos posted by current owners. GoPro owners frequently post demo videos on various video-sharing sites, giving you an opportunity to see what video quality is like under real-world conditions. Watch as many sample videos as you can to get a sense of what each model is capable of.

I ordered a GoPro at the beginning of October with their trade in deal (send in your old camera and get 25% off go pro hero 7 silver). I sent my old camera off and a few days later got an email from GoPro saying the payment could not be processed so I called them up to sort it out and they told me my order had been cancelled. The next day, I ordered another GoPro hero 7 in silver with my student discount. The following week I check my bank account and they have taken out payments for 2 orders! I called them up and they said they could not do anything about it as both orders had been shipped, I would have to return one and get a refund with the 30 day money back guarentee. I did that and was told I would get my refund within 7-21 days... It's now been OVER A MONTH and I havn't got my refund.
Much like Band-Aids or Kleenex, GoPro makes products so good that their brand name is synonymous with the product itself. GoPro’s portable video cameras set the standard for action cameras: they’re durable enough to withstand just about any outdoor activity, they’re easy enough for anyone to use, and they include features typically reserved for far pricier cameras.

Are Gopros waterproof?


With video shot on your GoPro, you can also assist Quik by using the highlight tag feature, found in both GoPro apps and on the camera itself via the Mode/Highlight. You can tag highlights while recording or during playback, and doing so will make sure Quik knows which portions of your video are important, and will include those moments in the edit.

Is GoPro still the best?


I am so disappointed at GoPro, they have the worst customer care, with multiple frauds, including the 24hrs contact support for GoPro plus customers which is fake. Refund Frauds I experienced, they claim PayPal payment takes 30 days to refund, which PayPal has denied and said the refund should be instant. Inefficient administration costed me lots of time and money wasted on talking to them trying to resolve issues made by them. Delayed delivery. Untraceable order ID.
Inexpensive: Between $200 and $300, you’ll find GoPro cameras that are perfect for most people. There are great 1080p models and some decent 4K models in this price range, and if you’re willing to look at last-generation models, you’ll find a lot to like here. If you absolutely need bleeding-edge features like spherical capture or live streaming, you’ll need to look at more expensive models, but if you just want an action camera that can take gorgeous video and go just about anywhere, you don’t need to spend more than $300.
