I agree that the free 2-day shipping needs a little asterisk next to it. First, they really need to clarify to people that 2-day means the shipping method, NOT processing time and expected delivery day from the order date. If nothing else, during the ordering process it should notify the buyer to expect 2-4 days for processing and warehouse to put the order together AND THEN it will be shipped via FedEx 2-day delivery.
As far as notifications, yeah, the system seems to be overloaded. This isn't so much on GoPro as they use another companies software and it is all automated, but hopefully they can get something done. Similar to how this site is run on Lithium (the program). I notice that whenever a new product is released and the comments section gets more activity, suddenly the email notifications that used to regularly get start to lag considerably. For example, I just checked and I still haven't received my normal email notification showing that you replied to my previous post.
As far as the HERO7 Black, I try to keep the post we see here in perspective. Considering that the HERO7 Black has beat all other previous launch sales, there actually seems to be far less issues reported than with previous models (at least it seems that way to me).
When I reflect back on the last few years on this community, if I were to rank reported issues and complaints from most to least, it would be:
and the HERO7 pretty far behind those. What's most important to remember though, is there are still people using all of those cameras trouble free. MOST people didn't have an issue with any of them.
No doubt there are some issues. What we have seen thus far seem similar to HERO6 when it comes to battery and Freezes, but honestly, the HERO6 had WAY more initial issues and much more frequent battery & lock up complaints. Personally, I'm not overly concerned at all. My HERO6 now works flawlessly, as do all of my other GoPro cameras (except my HERO4 Silver does have the helicopter Wi-Fi noise). If there are any issues with the HERO7, I have no doubt that GoPro will squash the bugs in the coming months. For the most part though, it seems that MOST people love this camera.

well i must say mines had no issues (but neither have my others except the original Hero 6). Being lazy I did swap the battery from my Hero 6 into the 7, put the sd card in & let the app do its update & away we've been. As mines a dashcam mainly i don't often leave it, but when i do for a few days over the weekend its always held its charge (so could it be a battery issue as i'm using an old one)

I complain to. the one I complained about and not many had was the quick capture and turned off drained. nevergot resolved. I leave it as is works fine H5B.
I'll keep that in mind use the other battery and I updat the correct way. I have yet oupdated the Hero 6 black still on 1.51 factory. camera works no need for me to be updated. no fixes I needed honestly ifasked.
