Absolutely Spectacular! Got my Gopro just 2 days ago as a birthday present and one things for sure, it's spectacular. Image quality is superb, versatility is incredible. The GoPro 3-Way Selfie Stick/ Tri-pod is insane! A selfie stick, handle, handle+tri-pod and just tri-pod all in one hand held package. Action Gear has exceptional service. My order was made early evening and i was able to collect from their warehouse a day later. All in all i'm ridiculously impressed. You should buy one!.

I'm with Nic on this! I've had my Silver for a few days now and am SO pleased I chose this over the Black. The screen is killer and I would never use that stupid high frame rate. (Plus saving R1500 never hurts!) .
