Re: Just a poor GoPro experience

I think the same, purchases are very often made on feedback, recommendations and reviews and I struggle to understand how they are happy. Like I said earlier Nick may not be aware and may not look himself but any GoPro workres reading this now, you need to raise it with your line managers otherwise you may be out of a job. Maybe its a not my job situation.

Re: Just a poor GoPro experience

I think the packaging was designed to stop them getting nicked, pretty bulky and I quite liked its flashness. I have almost all the mounts so I can film when swimming, skiing, with the dog, in the car, on my motorbike or just on holiday and the packaging on them are pretty tough to get past. Now we have El Grande at £70 or one on amazon that holds the smart remote aswell for £23. What will people buy?

Re: Just a poor GoPro experience

Nick said he is after Mobiility where the profit is at  a fe dollars here and there adds up. he will be after the fushion another new camera at around 800.00 a 360 degree I will be after a 50.00 one then  gopros   overly priced one.

 

 if not I'll use what i got and move on
