    my wife wants a video camera for her birthday and i'm thinking of a go pro. where's the best place to get one quick (her birthday's on wednesday)? doesn't have to be top-of-the-line. entry level (or even a used but like-new) will be fine, thanks!

    Not bad! :)

    The Hero 4 Silver is a joy to use because of the touchscreen. I hope you and Ma'am Being have lots of fun with it, professor!

    It's odd that among the four Hero 4 models, the entry level and the high end models are the ones without built in lcd screens ü

    I think having an lcd or not is not a big deal. Still sticking on my hero 3+.

    Yes but it does not offer that much reach. I have one and I use it always. :)

    I have the GoPro 3-way and I use it a lot because of its flexibility. Aside from helping you with certain angles and heights, it can also help you stabilize your shots. The included tripod is also a very handy feature.

    Could be because extended use of the LCD touchscreen consumes more battery power and for a lot of folks, that's a big no-no? However, you can program the screen to power down after "x" time of not being used.

    Recently got a Hero4 SE from Henry's Quiapo. At 18.8k, you also get freebies such as a generic selfie stick, Transcend 16GB microSD card, and 2 extra batteries with external charger. Based on the tags, freebies amount to 2,850. I like the external charger as it allows you to use either a miniUSB or microUSB cable. So far the batteries seem ok but not really confident it would last a long time unlike those branded ones

    As a first timer, I was so tempted to buy other accessories (floating hand grip, go pole, carry case and remote) as there was so many on display at the store.

    If anyone else is getting a GoPro, I suggest holding off on buying other accessories and just think on how you'll normally use the action camera. In my case, I just purchased an SP Gadgets 19" remote pole to use in and out of the water (as the free stick was not waterproof)

    If you ask me, don't buy a remote, just use the 30 shots in 6 seconds photo burst ü

    Recently bought a GoPro Hero 4 black for 17500. Was about to buy a brand new hero 4 silver when I saw an ad on olx selling a 3month old hero 4 black for 17500 that comes with a 32gb memory card, extra battery, a pole and a gocase, and some other accesories. So i bought it right a way. Thought it was a pretty good deal.
