Buy, Unpack & Use A Gopro Camera in One Hour

Due to a last minute decision, we had to buy, unpack and get familiar with a Gopro Hero3+ Black Edition in a hurry. Since we couldn’t wait any web deal, we had to get a retail bundle from Bestbuy. The first 5 minutes of unpacking is frustrating, I hope this video will help you save the time. In terms of usage, this video provides the minimum you need to know, you can defer reading the users guide until your trip when you have more time.

Note the new camera froze during the first usage. I had to update the firmware, the steps are as follows:
1. from your PC, download the UPDATE.zip from gopro.com, uncompress it in a folder called UPDATE.
2. insert microSD card in the card reader, and copy the UPDATE folder onto the microSD card.
3. insert the microSD card in your camera, and power up.
