Q & As

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great fun and very useable I'm having a great time using this, and was very pleased that in the box was everything you might want, including two mounts immediately. The camera works great. Although the GoPro Hero 4s are now available, the price on these Hero 3s is now really attractive, and the functionality is practically the same, except for less 4k modes (this one does not have 4k). 16 August 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by GoPro operation: still learning Great little cameras with amazing clarity and resolution, I've used mine for cycling and motorcycling so far. I'm still learning about its operation, the issue that I've had so far concerns how long it records if you want continuous recording of, for instance, a cycle ride, though doubtless with more experience I'll get to know what to expect. Really glad I bought one, its use is almost limitless. 09 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exceeded Expectations Brilliant piece of kit. Image quality is excellent and easy to use. Glad I went for the 3+ opposed to the 4. 09 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great bit of kit great camera, easy to use even with gloves on. Used on road trip to Mull on a motorbike with rain sleet and hail, and it recorded it all 02 June 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Wrong SD cards Buying a bundle with SD cards included, you'd think they'd be the correct ones for the camera you're buying them with, but these were standard SD cards when Gopros require micro sd. I was very disappointed at this error online and had to return them to the store. 17 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super camera I bought this little camera to take aerial pictures with my DJI Phantom, John Lewis were no cheaper than anybody else but they give an extra years warranty and the service is excellent ! The Gopro is brilliant but it takes a bit of time to understand the settings but never the less worth it. Take care with online auction sites there are a lot of fakes out there! 03 October 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by An essential for travel adventures Great product, easy to use but disappointed that that it did not come with a charger. 03 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Go pro Camera Really great little camera - easy to use and brilliant quality pictures. 06 May 2014
