I've no idea about this one but there are dozens of decent action cameras on the market just as good as GoPro and much cheaper. I think GoPro have priced themselves out of what is a very competitive market. I mean, how much of a mug do you have to be to buy an action camera for £250 only to find you need to download software before you can use it? They must be laughing all the way to the bank along with Apple and Landrover.

The software is free and they keep coming out top in the tests - they are the market leaders and like Apple a lot of other products are designed with their cameras in mind, having said that more and more competitors are offering cameras that are just as good if you don't want everything a GoPro offers.

All IMHO!

If they're the market leaders, how come my phone camera shoots 4K video at 30pfs?

Personally thinks its good value had a mess with it today does film well. Long time harsh use and dodgy weather will confirm value and durability tho,,,

Couldn't resist it, been fancying a gopro but just couldn't swallow the price for something il use a few times a year. This little camera will do.

I've got to be honest I made a bit of a tube of myself whilst looking for it, I went to Aldi in Elgin then in Inverness, both said they would be in on Thursday with the rest of the skiing stuff, I then checked this thread whilst in Aldi's and noticed it was a Lidl offer! Doh.

Aldi must have a similar thing arriving in store on Thursday.
