Very poorly written blurb, the phrasing is very awkward and you got the name of the company wrong.
Number 1. - "Hero claim that it is..." The company is called GoPro, not Hero.
Number 2. - " two times more powerful than previous models." Someone has never heard the phrase 'twice as powerful.'
Number 3. - "It also boasts two times faster video and three times faster photo taking." How about 'It also boasts a doubling in video frame rate and tripling in still frame rate."

Not to mention your appraisal of the camera's ability to be mounted on virtually any sporting paraphenelia makes it seem limited exclusively to the handlebars of mountain bikes.

When you allow such poorly composed journalism onto your website it not only irritates your readers, it makes your entire enterprise seem amateurish.

Apologies, and thanks for your input. Article amended.
Emma, you're willingness to listen to criticism came as a surprise and is really commendable. Looking back at my comment now, I think my delivery was heavy handed and I could have phrased my suggestions more as feedback than criticism. I'm sorry for what really now just looks like rudeness, and I admire you're ability to disengage from my poor delivery and focus on what should have been helpful comments.

I would love to try a go pro on my mountain bike, I just wonder if I'd actually use it enough.

Are you wondering if you'd use it enough because you don't bike enough, or just wondering if you'd find enough uses to justify the price?
