Its also a constant light, so motion blur becomes more apparent (strobe light helps to freeze the motion)
Well I'm just thinking that on a go pro that taking photographs will probably be my secondary function, and in reality I can grab stills from moving footage. I would like to move on to stills with a DSLR eventually, but I'm on a budget to start and don't want to overload myself, so gopro and cheap tray/handle is the best start for me at the moment.

I forget its strobe for diving...... I'm so used to external flash heads in a studio
