Another "must have" for technophobes!!!

It's about time somebody gave GoPro a challenge because even though the Hero is a great product, the accountants came in & immediately started ripping off the customers!!
ie; Hero 2 with 11MP was $199
superceded by Hero 3 last year at same price but lowered resolution to 5mp

to get back to the original 11mp now costs $299!!!!

OK, it's slimmer & a bit fancier, but they easily could've kept the price down.


..............................OK, early morning rant over, time for 2nd cuppa tea!!!

I'm not a GoPro Fan. I got a GoPro when they first came out and hated it not user friendly at all. I was in Puerto Rico at the time and one of our employees that did photography and videos on the side gave me what i paid for it so it worked out well. I've been using the Drift Cameras since 2010 with no issues. The one i use now is the Drift Ghost. Out of the box the only thing i had to have to do 6 hour videos was a 12V outlet and a USB adapter. That with a 32GB micro sd card

I thought that technophobes were afraid of of techonology.
If you always have to have the latest toy; doesn't that make you a technofile?

Looks interesting. I agree on the need for a GoPro challenger. And the sliding record button is a great idea!
