I don’t do any of the extreme activities featured in the GoPro product videos, but I knew I wanted one. The durability and built-in intervalometer seemed ideal. I mounted it on the window of my cross-country Amtrak train, I hung it from a kite. The intervalometer makes it tempting to turn it on and curate the results later, as I did for a trip down the Merced River in Yosemite. I’ve also tried using it as a regular camera with a shutter button.

That facts, however, are that timelapse using a GoPro are often unsatisfying, and nobody is seriously using this as a “regular camera with a shutter button.”
