    anyone had a bad experience with new Gopro?

    I got mr srd a go pro hero mini 11 towards the end of last year. have used it a bit but not a lot.

    it stopped working after being used on Saturday. just bricked.

    customer service a bit of a faff but seems like they'll sort it.

    Just curious about other people's experience? as I've never heard anything particularly negative about them, other than cost.

    I've got a Hero 8 which is just over two years old now. I have had to replace batteries (but I was using it for at least an hour a day, and sometimes for many hours) but otherwise I'm quite pleased with it. I deliberately went for a GoPro because I had reliability issues with the cheaper brands.

    I did briefly try an Insta360 but almost immediately had charging issues with it.

    I guess, make sure you use it plenty when you get the replacement as it feels like these things die quite early on if they are going to die at all?

    Don't own any myself, but during abandoned investigations into a camera for reporting in anticipation of the portal we're no longer getting, youtube was throwing up quite a few videos talking about the most recent generation or two of gopros having overheating issues that would cause shutdowns long before battery life exhausted or, in a few cases, bricked them. It seemed more like a "these used to be pretty much flawless and now have occasional issues you may want to be aware of" tier situation than "they're worthless, never buy that brand again".
