I'm giving serious consideration to buying this rather nifty piece of kit and was wondering if anyone on the forum has any experience with these cameras. This one has a voice activation feature and that will come in useful when filming the Robins at Leighton Moss next June. AO are currently selling it at £244 as part of their 'Black Friday' offers. That is a very good price.
Any feedback welcome.

I think Christmas has come early for someone, whilst I'm still making my mind up LOL enjoy your new gadget ;) this link is for anyone else who's thinking about buying a GoPro 8 - but don't clear the shelves out until I've made my decision ha ha !

LOL Nige !! now there's an idea and he'll run out of the brook if I chuck out waxworms or mealworms ! To be honest, I can't decide whether to get this GoPro; first priority is getting necessary items for the apartment - if we ever get access to it ………….. first fix is currently being done but the weather hasn't helped progress on the external areas. Hard to know what we want or need until we have internal walls in situ and can look round, preferably without the hard-hat and hi-vis jackets lol
