I've got each of the first three generations of GoPros. I just bought another Hero 3+ black a month ago, in anticipation of using in on a UAV I have on order ("Pocket Drone") I've been using these, plus a Sony Steady Shot, and a couple of Pentax cameras with interval timers. I like to do time lapse stuff, slides, that kind of thing. One issue to watch out for is condensation
in the waterproof GoPro housings. They fog
up here after about 20 minutes of recording video. I've tried the GoPro dessicants, but they're useless. This problem is mainly when the camera is in the sun, in a sealed up case. The vented case back, no problem with fogging. But..it's also no longer waterproof. I did buy an extended battery
pack ( which NEVER worked, even once, by the way) for the bigger rear case. And I put five bigger dessicants in there, and solved
the fogging issue.
I made a mount for the tip of the mast
of a Hobie Tandem Island sailing kayak
, and got a sort of different time lapse of sailing the Hobie out to a deserted island and back. That's on:
2 Gringos in the Caribbean: Late Winter Ramblings
there's a google earth
video of the path we took, on that one.
But the better time lapse from the Hobie mast is the Time Lapse Sailing video on:
2 Gringos in the Caribbean: Summer Sunday Sojourn
We've also been taking a lot of aerial photos using a GoPro on a rotating mount under a kite.
