I have spent a lot of time looking at the different models and the problems with all of them. I am leaning toward the 7 but see where it has problems over heating, don't need that. I like the voice command as it would fit with how I hunt ( looking at a chest strap ) The 6 doesn't seem to have the heating problems but no voice command, Soooooo what suggestions do you have, all will be appreciated.

where did you read that 6 doesnt have voice commands? all gopros have it since hero 5. Heating is not that bad on 7 black as you described, its definitely warm to touch but nothing horrible.

Wait till september when they release hero8 and get that one , or the 7 black after they lower its price due to newer model. You wont regret it

Boznoz As I said I have been reading some of the comments on different sites. I realize that the few comments against the thousand sold is not much, but still a problem. What would you recommend the 7 or the 6 I can't wait until Sept. Like I said the voice command is something I am looking for. I have seen videos taken with the go-pro and really liked them. I have a Cannon video cam and it bounces all over the place. As I said I am looking today and will buy today.

As we near a new Hero, the choice is going to be what YOU want not us.


FW 1.61 adjusted temps camera will get hotter in 4K60. I have yet to have my camera fail me. so I wonder where like @Boznoz said H5 and higher has voice command,

Other camera's may be better for hunting but this is a Action camera we use if for everything

I hear Amazon is offering 40.00 a DJI Osmo Action, and GoPro 17.00 the Hero 7

OK, I bought the hero 7, I can see where I will need a few more things, extra battery, extra charger, portable power pack, but so far it looks like a great camera. I in my usual stupidity forgot the card so its been ordered and on it way, as most know with out the card it doesn't work. I was watching u-tube on how to operate the camera and the guy on there said ( go pro turn on ) and my go pro did just that, I had set it for voice commands. I had taken the card out of my smart phone and put it in the go pro. The wife made me replace it back in her phone.......I am looking at the portable power pack, any preference ? I had also bought the accessory pack with all the handles, mounts, selfie stick, floating handles and such. I can see where I need to buy 2 more batteries a charger and the portable power pack if I am going to do any long time videos. Thanks in advance for the help...
