Gopro7 white for tandems? Can't Post

I need to upgrade my camera setup for tandems (outside & HC),
and reading about this model specifications, I'm thinking it is enough quality for the job, also cheaper to buy 1 for video and 1 for pics.

Do you think it's a good idea to do that or better go for the black edition?

The 7 white is basically the same as the 6 Black. It will work fine quality wise.

Not even close Crazy

Even the entry-level "GoPro 2018" will do a better job. Especially with a firmware upgrade to make a GoPro 5 black out of it!

I didn't think the "GoPro 2018" existed. I thought it was the same as the 7 white and people were just calling it what they wanted. But there it is on amazon https://www.amazon.com/...tiveASIN=B07B7YPKQX.

To correct my very wrong statement, get the GoPro 2018 it is basically the same at the 5 Black. That's what I originally meant and just botched it really good.

That's not on you, their shady marketing techniques are really to blame here.

"The brand new GoPro 7 white" is basically a dishonest repackaging of deprecated hardware. Fixed battery, fixed lens cover, no 4k, no screen, no 16:9, ... :(

I admit I have a 6B, 7B, and Fusion. I am a multi-sport "Athlete" and use them for all sorts of stuff. The hyper smooth really is awesome. That being said, I wouldn't suggest anyone buy the white now that I did some more research on it.

The white and silver models are crippled IMO because there's no timelapse photo feature. That makes them useless for my HC purposes anyway

I wrote to GoPro about that several weeks ago, but there's been no reply.

Hey Chris,

I sent you a PM, but might as well follow up here since you are active in the thread.

Is there any possibility that you will be refreshing a dual camera upper housing for your gloves to fit the new Gopro 7 black?

I love my current setup from you, but every season my 3+ blacks are getting longer and longer in the tooth.
