Go Pro has arrivd
No pics as I was in too much of a rush to look at it. Got a Hero 2 outdoor and I hope it will be good once I get to use it.
BUT--First of all I had to get it out of the stand it comes with. Looked at it and how do you get the Mount thing off so you can use it. Good -there is a nice thick instruction manual to read that will tell me. No there isn't--well there is but even with my reading glasses on the lettering is too small. Gave the mount to my son-in-Law to get off and it took him a couple of minutes to work out how you can get it off.
So next thing--How to fit the battery. The camera comes assembled with the outer casing and to fit the battery you have to get the outer casing off. Look at the manual--NO-- Forget that as I have already found out. It is easy to take off once you know but it is not easy unless your eyesight is perfect and you can see the arrow that tells you how to take it off.
Then charge the battery. Easy enough but no separate charger and you charge via USB. Did that with no problem.
Then how to set up the camera. Back to that Bl**dy manual again so it still is not set up.
So I have decided that I have to go shopping today. Going to get a magnifying glass so I can read that %^&$£?< manual.
I know I am getting older but I gave the manual to my wife- My daughter and my SiL and they all agreed with me. You need perfect eyesight to read that thing and that was with their glasses on aswell.
So going on the net today to try and find an online set up vid to show me how to set the damn thing up.
How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
