A word of caution: Lots of people, (myself included), have been having problems with the new GoPro Hero digital camera. I bought one through a group buy over on our sister site, www.ducatispot.com
. Initially, I was unable to get the battery to hold a charge. The battery ultimately took a charge, but now, when I think I'm recording video footage, the camera only takes a still picture.
I initally thought I had inadvertantly switched the camera setting from video, (the default setting), to picture, but then I did a bit of internet research and discovered serveral threads wherein people described having the exact same problems I was having.
There are some issues with some of these cameras!
