Shots, like ones close to the ground, are a bit more difficult to monitor. Filming yourself by holding the camera in your hand can also be difficult since you do not have a way of seeing yourself. See More
The camera is great to learn shooting video with because it doesn't overwhelm you with buttons and it has an auto-mode that does everything for you. It doesn't have too many buttons for a lot of in-depth customizations so it won't overwhelm you. Though those settings are still there, just cannot be accessed as quickly. Which is a good feat for beginners, since that will give you enough time to learn how everything comes together, and how to use them. Such as aperture and shutter speed. The auto-mode, on top of doing everything for you, will also help you understand what settings to use under what conditions. That's because it displays some of them on the screen while autofocusing. Those being aperture, shutter speed and ISO sensitivity. See More
It’s a great action camera because it has class-leading video quality, amazing stabilization, plethora of mounts, and it can survive water, getting dropped and all kinds of weather. The Hero 7 Black outclasses both the Silver and the White by a significant margin. Being able to record 4K60 over 1080p60, retaining quality in low-light situations, on top of that. Thanks to its HyperSmooth stabilization technology the video filmed on it is smooth. This one without a mount/stabilizer is comparable to a Hero 6 black that's with a pole mount stabilizer. You can mount it to basically anything that can get the mount attached to it. With already having a number of different ones, there's a mount for your bike, for example. Then there's the 3-way grip and so on. It is water-resistant down to a depth of 10m (~33ft), so naturally, rain will not hurt it either. See More
