Hi... New member here based out of California. Although I have been a GP users since the earlier days (as far as I can recall, I started with the 3); I have never been enough of a power user.

I joined this group hoping to get a more enriching experience than the GoPro Facebook group that I am member of since it is HEAVILY MODERATED, ie., every post needs to be approved by the Admin/Moderator (vendor/retailers for action cameras).

Looking forward to enjoying the interactions with folks. Cheers!
Lol. have to agree with you,

Greetings from rural upstate NY!
I'm new to GoPros. I purchased a used GoPro 8 Black with some accessories and have accumulated some more. My hope is that I can get some good fishing video from my kayak. I modified a monopod, making it into a telescoping boom with Ram Mount components. That was the easy part. Getting an good understanding of all the features of the GP8 will take a while. I have a lot of reading ahead of me before I actually get to use it.

Some accessories that I have (or will have)
screen/lens protectors,
GP Rollcage
2 dive suits
silicone cover
4 batteries
2 chargers
Supercharger
Ram ball mount w/socket

I'm looking forward to learning from the forum and with some luck, maybe I can document some of the fish I've caught.

Welcome to GoProForums.com - The largest and friendliest GoPro forum! As a new member we ask that you introduce yourself to us. Let us know which GoPro camera you own or want to buy and what you enjoy filming.

Cheers!
Hello - I am new to the forum. I just bought a Hero 10 & subscription as a Christmas gift for someone. The crazy thing is the subscription starts today. He's losing 30 days of the subscription until he receives the camera on Christmas day. I chatted with customer support to no avail. I even asked if they could extend the expiration date to comp us the 30 days. I'm surprised they don't just give an activation code so the recipient can activate the account when ready. Not a great experience for this new customer. Thanks for listening!

Options are endless.

the day you buy is the day it starts, not the otherway round, as bad as it sounds, hope he or she likes it. return the camera and repurchase again, only way you can extend it

Just got my first GoPro - a Hero 10 Black - and am looking forward to learning to use it as my new helmetcam. My dog and I travel all over the US (with Glenlivet in his custom sidecar) and for years have used a Contour Roam. I like the huge slider switch as it's easy to tell when it's on or off, but the resolution is poor and it really doesn't do dim light. I've used it exclusively for stills, and 90% of the time the Hero 10 will also be used for stills. I'm hoping The Remote will work as promised and overcome the push button feature on the camera which is really hard to use with riding gloves on.

Hello! I am new to this forum but have been buying and using GoPro products since the beginning of the company. I still have my Hero 2 and 3+ along with a Hero 8, 9, and Max. My avatar photo says it all :) I enjoy photography and videography of all kinds but am an avid motorcyclist and enjoy making video creations to document my numerous rides and trips both alone and with great friends.

I have just purchased the GP9, never used a GP in my life! I enjoy photography and try to get low flying fighter jets through the valleys in the Lake District in UK. I also enjoy salmon fishing. The two main reason I am aboard with the GP. We'll see how it pans out.

New member here,
I've been using GoPros for several years to document, learn from and share "stuff" that I do. I have a Hero3+ Silver, Hero5 Black, Hero8 Black(traded up from the 7Black on the GoPro subscription due to issues) and recently invested in the Hero10 Black. All the GoPros have been great tools for what I do. I am a climbing arborist but also take a lot of footage of my snowboarding, mountain bike/motorcycle riding and shooting. Have a had some "frustrating" issues with the newer GoPros. The most recent is my Hero10 shutting down with the "low battery" message and the battery having a full or nearly full charge..... very frustrating, and a lot of lost footage.

Thanks for hopefully being able to help me out or at least point me in the right direction.
Randy
