New GoPro

New Go Pro

Hero III black edition

This one is a game changer with the new filming modes. GP wouldn't give me one to test out (I asked) so I had to preorder one. Unfortunately it won't be here in time for the Swell ride. I may keep the old one as a perm roost cam

Expect a quality improvment in the RF vids

I'm not sure how I feel about the 4k resolution at only 15fps. What good is that great resolution if it's herky-jerky?

Looks like another great leap in technology from GoPro! I've been putting off buying a Hero 2 and I'm glad I did! My HD Hero has been great, but the Hero 3 looks like a winner. I love the remote and the GoPro app, where you can see what the cameras viewing on your phone.

Once I pick up the Hero 3, my HD Hero will still get used as a second camera for multiple angles. Now to save my pennies for the Hero 3!

That's for skydiving and things like that, not much good for moto. 1440p @ 48fps, 1080p @ 60 fps and 720p @ 120 fps are good moto modes and will make super sharp vids and great slomo

The aspheric optic is gonna get rid of the fisheye look; not sure if all chromatic aberration can be corrected with an aspheric.




Damn! Read it a little closer...6 element aspheric. Wow, don't break the lens ($$$).

Yea, that's what I was thinking too.

Of course the GoPro III is gonna be amazing compared to the II.

But what about it is better. I havent really followed the GoPro product at all and want to pick one up.
... and $400 is a bit more than I want to spend.

Is the II worth picking up still and are there accessories that are a must have?

The 3 has built in WIFI so you can see the video image from your smart phone which lets you make sure you have a good angle on the camera; something I fought with the Hero about. You can buy a wifi add-on for the earlier cameras but it makes them bulkier and/or they can't use the battery add-on.

I want a 3 but a woody's rear wheel is probably in the cards next.

No watching on your phone while you ride.
