4k video - can someone explain what this means?

I do like the smaller size!

I think that is the video rate, 4 kilobytes/sec which would be about 32 Mbps (megabits per sec).

Wifi?
Wifi takes 20-30 seconds to transfer a SINGLE RAW 24mp image from my nex7 - waaaaaaay too slow.


What are the wifi's capabilities/uses in the device? Anyone know? I take it is just being used as a remote control interface and not a video transfer method?

Aspherical is cool.. except everyone's going to be riding slower now (the fisheye made things look so fast!)

Watching this video in 1080p.. the lens and the dynamic range of the hero 3 are impressive!

The only use I know of for the WIFI is to connect to your smartphone/tablet and it lets you view the feed the camera's recording so you can adjust the mount angle and such beforehand instead of just guessing like you had to do before. It also lets you control the camera on/off and such remotely I think. They also have a hardware remote accessory for that stuff too.

I highly doubt it's to transfer raw movie files. A 5-6 hour recording in 1080p at 30fps was about 20-24 GB on the original hero, quite big for WIFI.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4K_resolution

In a nutshell, it's the next standard movie resolution after Blu-Ray/1080p. Super high end TV's support it now.

4096 2160 is the generally accpeted resolution of 4K, you could call it 2160p

1920 x 1080 is 1080p

Good picture of the difference:

If anything I'd run the camera on 2k or 1080p mode with the higher frame rates. Resizing a 4k down to 1080p also tends to add sharpness depending on how the 4k resolution on their recording chip is achieved.

All that just to post it on youtube and it will still look like crap. I could see it being a big deal if you were making a movie or something but for something to show your buddies how cool you are it is a little overkill.

The sad part is that youtube's quality is WAY better than cable television these days

Cripes comcast could you downgrade your signal any further?

If the screen resolution is at 4096 x2160 and the CMOS (I believe) chip size is 6.2 mm x 4.6 mm that would imply a native resolution of 2-3 um^2. I hardly believe that they are pushing the limit of the pixel size.. More pixels is just more pixels and doesn't mean your are gonna twice the image quality of the GoPro 2; The image resolution is mostly improved by going to aspherics (not pixel density) to remove distortion and improved focus.

Smugmug is decent on their video quality imo.

I've been playing around with getting streaming setup on my webserver. Wish the browsers would all support the same video streaming codecs for HTML5 (and last I checked a year or so ago they didn't).
