Be careful who you believe about the stabilisation. All those videos so faf are gopro family members. Here's someone cycling through london. It is not gimbal like that's for sure.

Honestly looks like GoPro stabilisation if the 6 is anything to go by. Very jumpy with sudden movements. Going straight it's fine but quick turns etc not so good.

$100.00 off a camera

$18.00 32gb card 

$10.00 Free Shipping

 

$399.99 -$128.00 = No Brainer 

 

$272.00  Yeah I forgot about taxes, they differ why I  did not include it

$399.99 -$100.00 = $299.99 a free memory card has no value - or + it's free... so you pay $300 pluse tax.

how has the free memory card got no value, if it wasn't included it'd cost you to get one

I think Fish was on the right track showing value ($100 off, $18.99 SD card for free, and free shipping). You save $128.99 by purchasing through GoPro with the Trade Up program. Money you might otherwise have to spend, increasing the overall cost. Somehow fuzzy math got involved, but the overall message was pretty clear.

Per Nick Woodman, the Hero7 Silver and White have stabilization, "on par with the Hero6".

Will you? Only 4.2 million cameras to go around this year, and you seem strangely pessimistic about a camera you're willing to spend money on.

 

As this thread is only being followed and commented on by a handful of people, most who are excited about and will purchase this camera, your post are mostly falling on def ears. But, if this is how you want to spend your time and energy, so be it. Speculate away. I hope you don't get too wet standing under that rain cloud all the time.

I just don't understand why people like to be so negative, I joined this forum as a fan of Gopro, so that makes me a fanboy of gopro then sweet I love titles..

But posting negative c_ _p and talking about a company's financial outlook and just ranting about stuff that honestly just comes across as being a waste of time to people who are here to exchange positive experiences about a product and company who they like seems like such a waste of time and energy.

I wonder if these people have a bad cup of coffee at Starbucks join there forum and rant about coffee bean using better beans....

@tallguysrc   @danielr15   Agree.

 

If you want to swing over to gopro,  that's the offer they give to all new or old, a great way to attract people, the card is also a great geasture as well betterthen a 16  but  would be even better ifa 64  but just enough to wet your appitite if asked. everything has a value,  the card may be promotional and no  value to gopro if asked but for anyone wanting a gooddeal it sure is value.

 

I am packing up a  competitors camera  and have no problem kissing htat one good bye!

 

Anyone  can get into the act just make sure its the right one for you..

 

  I have my  likes and dislike a love and hate relationship, its a gopro 

 

Stay Stoked  only downside for now is hte  waiting period while all the in house and sponsors get their video's out.  I'll accept their opinions. I sold myself if asked

Correct I sent them payment of the difference and  hoping my camera goes to charity.

If anyone is interested in   the hyperlapse thiswas what I was talking about early on before

As someone that has not had a Gopro and was waiting to see what the 7 had to offer, Id have to say that Im simply going to opt for the cheaper 6. I would be a casual vaca user and in all the videos Ive seen, nothing on the 7 really convinces me to spend that extra money quite frankly. Id doubt many friends who may see my videos are going to notice that much difference either. If I had an older camera, I do think it would have been a no brainer to upgrade.

every video i watch of Casey's always confirms 1 thing, that he's an idiot & not sure how he makes so much from YouTube. He didn't even know if the thing was recording, nor bother making the most of the new features of the 7 while using it

 

as for his ending "where does a GoPro sit between a phone or a DSLR", simple it doesn't sit anywhere between them. I'd of liked to of seen him film any of that bike ride or waterpark using either a phone or DSLR

Re: GoPro Hero 7 Release Date?

This is a post that addresses those who say that GoPro will never be able to compete with the cheap knock offs that seem to be flooding the market.

 

I have wanted a GoPro for quite a while but was really never able to put it into the budget.  With my 20th Anniversary scuba diving trip to Curacao coming up, my wife and I decided to get something that we could record our vacation and specifically our dives with.  We are never really the ones to spend a ton on anything but I hate buying crap.  We thought that we wouldn't use it much so we decided to buy one of the "nicer" knock offs and got it just a few days before our trip.  The first thing that drove me nuts was that there wasn't a true skeleton frame for it.  You had to use the underwater housing to mount it to anything.  I have to admit the video was pretty good but the latch on the housing cracked after the second dive, the camera went nuts on one of the dives and had to be restarted half way through the dive.  I usually keep the things I buy for quite a while so I made the decision while on the trip to send the camera back and look at the GoPros when I returned.  I couldn't believe how cool it was to have a bunch of videos from every dive we did (I continued to use it even with the latch cracked).  Bottom line:  GoPro doesn't need to compete with the knock offs IMO.  They are appealing to two completely different buyers.  I want to have some confidence that when I buy something, it has the potential to last if taken care of.  I babied that knock off and it still broke.  I am looking forward to stopping by the local BX on the Air Force base and picking a Hero 7 Black up next week (I called and they are in stock already and there is no tax on anything purchased on the base.

 

One last comment on the knock off I bought.  I purchased the "Waterproof" floating grip from the same brand.  It was filled up with seawater by the 4th dive with no way I can see to get the water out.  I am betting the GoPro won't have that issue.

Ive never understood this concept of announcing a new product and then only shipping out orders 2 weeks later. Did Apple start this?

Why not just wait 2 weeks to announce, then start shipping orders out right away?

Part of it is determining interest for production and potential sell through of product. Your major chains have made their initial order but need an indication of what the sell through will initially be so they can order back stock now.

Re: GoPro Hero 7 Release Date?

it would make sense as we can go & get one as soon as its been announced, but even this time they only stocked a few selected BestBuy stores & pictures/info got leaked out 2wks before the official launch. I believe some people even managed to purchase one before the launch, so stocking all the normal retails would mean they won't need to bother with a launch, we'll already know everything about it lol

@Anonymous - "  I am betting the GoPro won't have that issue."

 

There is plenty of leaky Hero5 and Hero6 cameras. Especially the rubber on the buttons will detoriate after a while and start leaking.

 

And GoPros biggest problem has always been their SD-card interface.It seems sometimes to HyperSensitive(TM) to which type of card you use.

 

The 2nd biggest problem have been faulty release firmware with lots of bugs. The should use SuperTime(TM) to really remove all bugs before final release. Even last years Hero6 was a disaster with split screens and freezing.

Does anyone know if GoPro will ship early? I have been told mine will ship on October 2nd, which I thought the actual release date was today the 27th. I know BestBuy will have them available for purchase on the 30th. I have an event this weekend and I was hoping to try it out before. Anyone?

Will it be possible to turn off the screen? . Just as you could do it in 4silver gopro. Because I do not need a screen when recording a cam that's on a helmet. For example, when I record ten-second shots.

Hi @bluecave55171,

 

We don't have that option as of now but that would be a good suggestion.

GoPro : you really need to listen to us. double press the side lcd off, double press for back on. while single press highlights no one agrees SWEET gopro will not get this done at all if we do not   go to  the feedback.

I am waiting for this option since my gopro4silver broke down. Add the option to turn off the screen completely, because a lot of people do not need it. And I would finally buy a camera.
