Roger that Glenn. I ordered some cool mounts today to get me some perspectives that the GoPro mounts alone won't allow. The beta testing will continue My feeling right now is that I need to replace my three Hero/Hero2 boxes with Hero 3 Blacks, giving me five of the H3 Blacks.
One does need extended battery packs because the H3 won't run a full hour before it goes toes up on the standard battery. This is a small negative given the plus column which includes a great wifi remote system, a variety of frame rates, a lens that is a considerable improvement over earlier models, and much better low light capability.
One has to put this in perspective though, the very first Hero is still a technological wonder and allows captures that were pretty much impossible before it's invention. The H3 is just an amazing evolution of the original. The menus are much easier to run through, as is the general operation. I've got everything GoPro organized in one Stormcase so I can pop it open and configure five views of something in pretty short order. I have several audio cables and adapters enroute to, as the H3 is stronger in that area as well.
Pretty cool all in all. I guess that's why the California surfer dude who thought it up went from wondering how he was going to pay his rent, to head of a privately held company worth 2.5 billion, in less than three years.
