Gopro7 white for tandems?

Recommended Posts

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?

Not even close :S

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/GoPro-HERO-Waterproof-Digital-Action/dp/B07B7YPKQX?psc=1&SubscriptionId=AKIAIT6O2WSHYNEM3FBA&tag=elproducente-20&linkCode=alb&camp=2025&creative=165953&creativeASIN=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.

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.

I haven't found a good way to mount 2 Hero 5/6/7 Blacks in such a way that all the important buttons, lenses, and ports would be available without removing the cameras every jump. For that reason I made no double camera designs for these Blacks. I had hopes for the Silver and White models because of their simplified ports (the micro SD card and USB are both in the same side door). But the lack of a timelapse photo feature on the Silver and White made me throw my hands up again. Instead I still recommend double Session 5's for now.

Well, heck.  What I'd like to shoot HC would be a 7 for video and one of my pile of 3 or 4 for stills.  Doesn't sound like there's much chance of ever outfitting a glove to do it.  Maybe you could build a housing for legacy on bottom and 5/6/7 on top with access to buttons and ports???  Bet it would sell!
