Cheapchips did this too, pretty filthy.
Trying to decide bewteen the Gopro Motorsport for $290 or the GP3 Silver + Suction Cap mount for $417.
GP3 would be ideal as i can its in-built Wi-Fi to line up my shots with iPhone, but dont know if i can justify the extra $127 just to be able to get my Shot right.
Want to be able to put on Drift cars etc.
imho the ability to start/stop recording from the remote is worth the extra coin twice over.
Find a cheap wifi kit online for 90 bucks...
Does the 3 make a sound when you turn on/off the camera yet?
The 2 does.
Ours arrived Monday. Haven't seen it yet but might have a go tonight.
Will be on the prowl for a head-strap mount this week.
Missus is distraught that it doesn't come standard with an LCD screen..
I assume the silver?
Anyone know when the black is out? One place in aus said early 2013.
Local or OS. Care to share where?
Not quite sure where to pick one up that have them in stock. Then from the US, you either cant order or have to use ebay/paypal
Yeh I was a bit surprised, she did ebay/paypal afaik. Sorry I can't help out much more...she kind of sorted it out before I had a chance to think about it.
How'd you manage that? Is it a preview model or something?
Exmor-R + Carl Zeiss...I'll take the Sony on principle...
Picked up a Silver and a Suction Cap Mount for $399 from JB.
Not overly impressed. im waiting for app update on the 12th so can live view on iPhone. but may sell if im not impressed. as might spend money on a camera slider and Fluid head tripod
why cant you live view? isnt it the same as the HERO2?
Sw update required to recognise the 3...
sigh...same crap as what happened with the HERO2, theyll drag out the software update for a while i bet.
"App compatibility with the HERO3 will be available for White and Silver Editions on November 12, 2012, and for Black Edition in WINTER 2012. A software update for your HERO3 camera will then be required before using the GoPro app. Click here to update your HERO3 product software."
time will tell, we were left hanging for like 5 months with the original app for the WIFI bacpacs
So it seems there's not an awful lot of useful difference between the hero 2 and the hero 3 silver edition?
I might aswell just pick up a hero 2 and save myself $150?
