I am getting a thorough explanation of how to operate the GoPro. Before I started the lesson I was totally confused and did not know where to begin to use the unit.

Reka21 July 2020

It was a great and useful course. Only one thing is not perfect - showing the settings of Go Pro 3/4. I have a Go Pro 7 and it is very different. That part should be updated.

Keith8 July 2020

Because, my camera is a GoPro Hero 8 Black. Totally different than mine.How about a newer updated GoPro 8!!

adriano1 July 2020

I expected a more detailed course with more information on different settings to shoot photos and record videos (resolution, FOV, etc...) + what they do and recommendations. Plus, it was very outdated since Hero 3 was released in 2012 and the course was updated in 2018 (Hero 7 release year).

Scott11 April 2020

My problem is this is designed for a different model of Go Pro. I have a HERO 7 Black. The functions are much different. On the course it said they would all be similar.

Roni12 December 2019

This course is quite old and uses and old version of the go pro. I think an updated version with a newer camera would benifet me better as the settings, buttons, quality would be more similar to the current models.

Patti15 November 2019

Should originally mentioned which GoPro model you would be using as I have a different one so it's a bit upsetting and confusing.

Anuj2 May 2019

not useful because they are using go pro 3 whereas the generation today is for go pro 7. How practical is that atleast when you are teaching use latest equipments and also I fell there is an issue with your server the videos on youtube are working perfect but when i am using your website its buffering i tried and switched 3 connections and still facing the same issue

Lynn10 April 2019

totally new to gopro. was expecting info that related to current gopro products. why are you ripping people off with sales of GOPRO 3 leaning materials in the 2019 and how to edits with GOPRO STUDIO that does not exist for new consumers of gopro products .

Michael4 April 2019

The instructors in this course are very good. They are engaging and motivate the student to actively participate in the course material. The course is both fun and full of useful information. The lessons can be easily applied to help someone improve quickly. Thanks!

Jessica5 January 2019

The GoPro used in the video is old, technology of gopros has come a long way since then so buttons have changed. Even the cheapest most basic GoPro has a touch screen these days

Bobb31 December 2018

Thank you. I have not used my GoPro Hero 4 for about three years. This helps to get me up to speed.

Mark13 October 2018

So far so good. The volume for the presentation is not the same as the video sample volume. so I have to keep turning my volume up and do

Jorja25 September 2018

Phil is a great instructor however, the main reason I took this course was to learn GoPro Studio and it's no longer available for download. So while the information was great and can probably be generally applied to other editing software it leaves a beginner a bit adrift. That said, the course was certainly worth the fee and I thank Phil for all the work he's put into this presentation.

Alberto4 September 2018

The first part is probably a bit too basic (a video on how to turn on the camera and how to delete the photos is quite useless... that info can be find on the user manual). The interesting part comes with the tutorial on how to edit and correct your videos with the GoPro application. One last problem is the camera used for the tutorial is quite outdated.
