Yeah, I'm rooting for GoPro as a pretty cool American company but I don't see how they can maintain their market share with the sort of competition that has emerged without discounting their cameras further.

This was the in store price when I picked one up yesterday in north Texas. When I checked the online ad, there is a note saying stores can reduced in store beyond what the ad states. Guess that's what I found.

America seems to invent things, then the Chinese improve them massively and mass produce them for less. Drones, robot vacuums, military hardware, etc. America needs more Elon Musk with the persistence to improve things. It just feels like America is constantly debating while other countries are steamrolling.

Exactly. Plus their drone sucked. Their 360 Fusion is a disaster compared to the Insta360 ONE for less than half the price.

Yep. Completely agree. American companies come up with something, then they back on their laurels and think they're bullet proof. Then China steamrolls over them a couple months/years later with an even better product for less.

The company topped with the Hero 4 and the IPO was a total disaster. It is not only lower priced competition that is the problem. Nick Woodman is one of the worst CEO's I have ever seen.

The Chinese do NOT generally "improve them (stuff) massively". That statement is a bloody joke my friend. Sure there are a couple examples, but give me a break, by and large China steals IP and produces junk. The good stuff coming out of China is designed in the US, EU, or Japan and simply contracted to be manufactured in China.

There is no better action camera than GoPro.

On this we can agree. I've tried the supposed "just as good Chinese brands" and they simply cannot compete. I'm hoping for a deal on the Hero 6 in the next day or so!
