    As some of you may remember, I bought a GoPro for our last trip in the summer as I was going to give vloging a try. Well, we had nothing but trouble with it from it shutting down mid recording....jamming and not starting to record...it saying the battery was dead when it was fully charged....list goes on

    Today I received a new model with a year's guarantee. Dave is going through it now checking it over.

    So....do I give vloging another go starting with this Christmas or has it got me so mad that I stick it on Ebay?
    :shrug:

    you were mega excited about it so why not give it another go??

    I must say you've got me worried about my gopro. same model as yours and I've only ever really turned it on to see if it worked, never tested in the field

    It's difficult, you were really excited about it but then it let you down so you've probably lost confidence in it. I know what I would do, but then I give up to easily sometimes :lol:
