The GoPro is pretty nice because you can use your iPhone app to view the camera wirelessly through Bluetooth, which is a great feature for trying to get the angle and shot that you're trying to line up as it's mounted to your head or arm or leg, maybe on your surfboard. You do not need a view finder anymore with this technology. I was not as impressed with the sound quality at concerts.

All in all it is a very cool item to my collection, very excited to get it out on the mountain and capture all the moments that we forget in everyday life, very user-friendly, easy to work. One downside is the battery life—it doesn't take long to run out of power. But other than that great product.


  • You can hook it up to your iPhone
  • Superclean quality video
  • Waterproof and durable


  • Sound quality so-so
  • Battery power needs to be longer

The GoPro Hero Three is a great item to my collection of cameras. This is fun to use as I use my iPhone to view what I am filming. I can also hit record on my iPhone through the GoPro app. This makes life so much easier to see what you are filming before you hit record. I was very impressed with the app. It has a few glitches, but all in all works very well.

The quality of video that the GoPro puts out is phenomenally awesome, very wide angle and captures just about everything in view of site when mounting to my helmet. I can capture some of the best quality powder runs on the mountain. I pull out my iPhone just before making a run down the mountain, hit record, and on my way. I can see the view that the camera is projecting.

This is much easier to use than the old-style GoPro, as the old GoPro did not have a viewfinder or a wireless remote. This cost me some very good shots. Now it's so much easier to use the new GoPro Three. I am very impressed with the technology GoPro is putting out.

Keep up the good work! Thank you for this great great product as this will bring many memories to enjoy with my family and friends.
