Familiarity: I've used it several times
I tried to like this camera. I'm a bit of a tech junkie. And, I was eagerly anticipating its release. I took it out snowboarding on Vail Mountain. The camera "froze up" several times. When this happens, you have to remove your helmet, remove the camera, open the waterproof container, and remove the battery. Very frustrating. The operating system is horribly clunky, and time consuming to use. The GoPro App completely drains the battery of the camera quickly and is essentially useless. I think it is the wifi in the camera that is a terrible drain on the battery. The photos and video I was able to take were nice; but, not worth the headache. I'm taking my camera back for a refund.
