What customers say about "Size & Weight"
GoPro Hero7 Action Camera (4K, 12MP, Touch Screen, Waterproof)
  • The actual camera fundamentals are very good in terms of picture quality, screen, waterproof, neat size.
  • The size is more suited to mounting on your motorbike helmet or on the handle bars of your bicycle.
  • Its small size, the fact it's waterproof and the vast array of accessories that means you can use it when undertaking all sorts of activities.
  • Very light and portable and really really easy to take. I love it so much that I can’t leave home without it.
  • I should have appreciated just how small this thing is; it's a bit too small for my fat fingers.
Sony RX0 II Creator Kit (DSC-RX0M2G) Premium tiny tough camera with large 1.0-type Sensor, water proof, tiltable LCD panel
  • This camera is ridiculously tiny and as such, it's easy to take with you everywhere and fits conveniently in a bumbag around your waist rather than a big backpack designed for DSLR cameras.
  • The camera itself is small but without the handle it is still easy to hold and use due to its ridged body.
  • The big advantage of the RX0 II is of course it's size and that it fits easily into a handbag or jacket pocket.
  • Well there is no denying that this is a teeny toty camera. It's the smallest one I've seen outside a Christmas cracker.
  • Despite this camera's teeny size, the photos it takes are fantastic quality.

What customers say about "Display"
GoPro Hero7 Action Camera (4K, 12MP, Touch Screen, Waterproof)
  • The results are, as expected, very good, with the picture quality being very sharp, colour definition good and even the sound quality being quite remarkable given the compact size of the device.
  • The touch screen is great once you have downloaded the latest firmware via the Gopro App.
  • The touch screen is nice and clear and is easy to use once you familiarise yourself with the menu and settings.
  • Nice to have a black and white front-screen indicating a few parameters.
  • Unstable at times. Showed a frozen picture on the back screen a few times, or refused to switch off (had to take battery out).
Sony RX0 II Creator Kit (DSC-RX0M2G) Premium tiny tough camera with large 1.0-type Sensor, water proof, tiltable LCD panel
  • Great great camera!! So little and so much robust, waterproof and nice display.
  • Even in bright light I can still see what is displayed. Tiny camera with very cool features.
  • I really like the way this camera looks, the pictures are very impressive, the display works well, no lags.
  • The screen isn't great in bright sunshine, I could barely see what I was taking the photos of.
  • I do find it awkward to use for focus as the screen being so small doesn't give you the best indication of whether everything is in focus or not and sometimes I won't find what's in focus and what's not.

What customers say about "Video"
GoPro Hero7 Action Camera (4K, 12MP, Touch Screen, Waterproof)
  • Impressive digital image stabilisation. Attached to a bike handlebar, video is stable even when cycling on rough paths and camera is shaking badly.
  • Can select wide or narrower view in some picture/video modes. Optional h265 video recording (more efficient than h264, smaller files).
  • If you are desperate for an action camera with the best built-in stabilisation and best video quality, then this is what you need.
  • If h265 is selected as a video codec, previews of videos on the phone is not possible requires full download.
  • Video is okay, but it is very prone to lens smearing so take a cloth, and the stabilisation can't cope with a handlebar mount.
Sony RX0 II Creator Kit (DSC-RX0M2G) Premium tiny tough camera with large 1.0-type Sensor, water proof, tiltable LCD panel
  • This is a great camera. The quality of both stills and video is excellent.
  • Outstanding photos and videos from an outstanding package. Highly recommended.
  • Video quality is truly outstanding. I'm really looking forward to getting out into the sea this summer - and I'll be taking this rugged little fella into the shallows.
  • The video quality is quite nice, but I don't see a way to change focus on the camera with it, so you can film far away shots just fine but the closer you get.
  • Filming video was incredibly difficult. I took two videos and one was stunning and sharp, the other was incredibly blurry and unbelievably shaky.

What customers say about "Features"
GoPro Hero7 Action Camera (4K, 12MP, Touch Screen, Waterproof)
  • I have a great WI-FI signal using an iPhone and it downloaded and installed quick and easy the firmware.
  • The 'hypersmooth' makes for a gimbal like feeling, even when holding in the hand and the colour quality even at deeper water is amazing, a quick post production colour correction and its all back.
  • It stands I'm very pleased and really like the additional shots I can get with the wide angle and slow-mo functionalities. The image stabilization also appears to work wonders.
  • Not usable in water because the screen changes itself when it gets wet, ie turns from video to photo or any other setting it chooses.
  • Voice commands were poor and not understood. I have a Welsh accent and had to speak in Queens English for it to understand the commands.
Sony RX0 II Creator Kit (DSC-RX0M2G) Premium tiny tough camera with large 1.0-type Sensor, water proof, tiltable LCD panel
  • It come with a handle attachment which gives you more control of thing like zoom and the video filming capabilities - this attaches to the camera itself through a wire.
  • The handle has a button that controls a hinge allowing the camera to be angled which way you like - and you might find this very nifty and useful when using the handle as a stand.
  • The handle means you can easily take photos, zoom and video. This is superb and easy to use.
  • It’s crush proof...waterproof and very hardy...it’s metal and really well made!
  • I was able to quickly navigate around the various menu options mostly without needing to refer to the (online) instructions.
