The video quality is amazing, less impressed with the still pics I've taken so far, although they're still better than just having an iphone :-)

Likewise - I tried a couple of stills on Sark, just to see if I could work out how to do it! But a quick check on the computer that evening revealed less than stellar images. I'll be sticking to the 5D for still photography, but I love the GoPro for the ease of creating video just about anywhere!

I only wish the battery lasted a bit longer...!

To upload it to YouTube in HD you need to make sure you save it in hd otherwise it will only upload to 480p/520p. If you save it in HD then upload it, it will automatically do it. Just give it time to process cause for the first 10 minutes or so it won't be in hd but will change eventually.

& use the adhesive mounts! Their great! If your worried about them not coming off or marking they don't! If you want to take it off just heat it with a hair dryer till it comes free

In the end I sent Go Pro a video (taken on an iPhone)!!! They said the LCD Backpac was probably faulty and I should return it to them. I packaged it all up and was about to send it, but before I did I asked how long it would take to refund my postage costs...at which point they said they wouldn't!!!

I thought that was pretty appalling frankly, a brand new product that they have advised me to return and they won't cover they replacement postage back to Holland!

Anyway, as I only bought it 2 weeks ago presumably I can go back to the shop tomorrow, so it may not be a big deal, but that aside, still very poor customer service from Go Pro.

I think most companies warranty returns policy are through their local retail outlet. If everyone who wanted a warranty replacement was posting them from the four corners of the world the costs would be out of control.

Which is fine, my point was that after the initial 30 days, the only option appears to be to post the faulty item back to Holland, which seems very unfair!

Thats nonsense, you should be able to return it after 30 days with a faulty screen - you could have bought it and then gone on holiday without using it.

I would say the shop has to provide warranty here.

"If your claim is about a problem that arises within six months of buying the product, it's up to the retailer to prove that the goods were of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose, or as described when it sold them."

Sale of Goods Act - Which? Consumer Rights
