  1. I do not own one but I saw the photos and videos taken using GoPro. It made me want to buy one! If only, it is not that expensive! -katrina centeno

  2. Our old JVC video cam is still working but its features are so outdated. I also like a GoPro but we are budget constrained right now. The draining the battery tip is good for most gadgets with rechargeable battery, right?

  3. I’ve always been meaning to get myself a GoPro. Thanks for the tips, they are very much appreciated. I’ll make sure to take note of these so that I know what to do when I finally get one.
