Thanks. Very simple user here. Dont really need those. Just realize got another gopro hero 2018 quite similar to the hero 7 white.

Sorry really noob here haha

you can just google and see if the 7 White features are good enough for your usage? Eg. do you need gps? do you need 4k video? do you want the HyperSmooth Stabilization? do you mind built-in battery?

Those looking for action cam.... better hold your horse....

Today will have announcement for Insta360 ....

From leaks... iit stabilisation seemed better that GoPro 7

It’s a 360deg action cam.... so it’s more like GoPro Fusion but cheaper.

Lucky me, I nearly went ahead my purchase on the Fusion, now shall await and see =:p

i think 360 videos hasnt really taken off so the same goes for gopro fusion.
expensive,
cumbersome to edit (too much power required to as well)
videographer doesnt want to be in the video

The One X is cheaper than Hero 7. Does almost the same thing and more. Can do hyperlapse, slow mo, stabilisation looks pretty good. Can edit using the phone app.

Unfortunately not for Singapore.... everything mark up very high

Now local price comparison as of to-date:
GoPro Hero7 Black - $595/-
One X - $698/- (pre-order)

But One X should compare directly with GoPro Fusion
One X - $698 (pre-order price)
GoPro Fusion - $899/-

Yes, agree with you the amount of time and ease of editing video for 360 have somewhat improved considerably and can easily done on mobile app.

Planning to get GoPro Hero 7 Black soon.. This will be my first GoPro camera. Would love some advice on what are the essential accessories to get other than a spare battery/memory card, etc. Thanks in advance!

I saw my Friend who recently bought the new black 7 and I’m really very impress with the quality of the video compare to his older GoPro. Now my hand also very itchy to get one too.

Personally , i feel if you doing every type of recording

Lcd screen protector

Suction mount for glass

Gorilla pod as both a tripod and pole mounting , like window grill , railing

Bicycle mount if u cycling

Bag clip mount if you wan 1st person view when walking

Think it good enough

I recently ordered a casing for timelaspe coz scared rain will enter my usb , yet to come so idk if it good

I have gopro hero 4 black and hero 6 black...
Most of time, when not on holiday trips, I will try to use it as car dashcam... lol

Now I am thinking to get the Insta360 One X....
Price wise... almost same as GoPro hero 7

My lame reason is ..... shoot 360 degree scenes first then come back home to frame the shots...

Is gopro good for taking stills anot? Thinking whether to get hero7 or olympus tg5

u can't really compare a tg5 with hero7.

tg5 has a microscopic mode that hero7 can't compare with...

if you really want to compare.. then its tg5 over hero 7
