    Bought mine in June. Still happy with it. Might be able to score a super cheap second Hero2 when the 3 comes out.

    I'd so love to buy 2 or 3 of these and stick them around my car and have some laughs but so many other items competing for my money means I won't be able to. :(

    The MicroSD is a problem... Would have been better with normal SD.

    Now I'll need to get an MSD card that's a. Fast enough, and b. an adapter to use it in a card reader.

    1 month ago i searched a fair bit for a release date on the 3 couldn't find one, so thought stuff it i'll just get a 2

    then this happens which is annoying

    but comparing both of them together there really isn't a huge amount of difference, the only good thing seems to be double light pick up at night

    30fps burst. Curse you gopro!

    Great, now I need to upgrade....


    Would be really nice if they could fix the jpeg engine artifacting though. The 12MP pictures are quite reasonable considering its mostly a video camera, but when you zoom in fully, there are like hot spot dark and light pixels. Not like pixel noise, but like the noise engine isnt quite right and doesnt render smoothly at that pixel level. Makes little difference when viewing at screen size, but any larger and you see them. If they smoothed them out, you could at least print say A3 sized pretty damn good photos. I dont expect full 12MP res equiv to a full camera though.

    Cool, last time they didnt ship to AU

    They charge 84.95 shipping though so would come to about 465AU. Still better to arrange someone to bring one over haha

    Could last night, but saw the delivery was well after I'd have left the country for Europe, so not ordering, will pick one up on my way through.

    their promo video has me hooked. I want one so bad.

    I figure it might motivate me to do awesome amazing things.

    I can't preorder the Black though :( would shipping really cost ~$90.00?
