Since I use GoPros for my business, I had not spent much time looking at lower cost alternatives, since they're pretty cheap (for what I do). But, since this came up, I've been reading about GoPro alternatives. The Yi 4K looks like a good bet. (Ordered 2 last night.) I'd stick with GoPro out of loyalty - buying from a Chinese company isn't my first choice, but practical considerations are important. And, as a customer, I like to feel respected. In this regard, GoPro is a failure.

GoPro finally released a bypass to the required login. The App update came out this morning. I did a test using airplane mode and indeed was able to use the camera app when I "purposely" logged out. I've never had to log out, it always did so automatically.
Sure hope GoPro really did listen. I loved GoPro, but they lost my trust multiple times through the release of Capture.
Let's hope they refocus on the customer again as shown with this update.
Glad to find a solution, and releaved to see gopro listened to their fans. Requiring login, internet connection, data mining, and any attempt to leverage customers are really foolish short sighted ideas. If anyone makes a great product or service they won't have to force it on people, we will happily sign up for it.
