Default Just ordered the GoPro 3 Black Edition!

I'm pumped about this camera. It has unreal features on it. I like the remote for changing settings and turning the unit on/off. The wifi will also be nice for lining the shot up. This camera is capable of so much. Should be unreal video/picture quality too.

I've been running the 960 for a couple years now and it has been a great camera too. Time to move up in the world.

I paid full price on her which is $449 here in rip-off Canada. It's $399 from GoPro.com. $100 off is a good deal for you.

I can't believe this camera will do 4k video. That's 4 times the resolution of 1080P. Of course it's only 15fps at this resolution, but still pretty cool. Even 1080P will look nuts on this thing.

And I take a lot of GoPro still shots, so 12MP will be pretty damn nice too.

I'll pick up the LCD Back Pack too for lining up shots without having to pull out my phone.

I plan on ordering one sooner to release date. $399 is a lot of money for a camera though. I almost pulled the trigger on a hero 2, thank god I waited a few months!

If anyone knows of a promo code.... I'd REALLY appreciate it!

I just dropped $$$$ on a used track and shock rebuild.

There is a white($199), Silver($299), and black($399) edition camera. What seperates these three are two things. The black shoots in 1440P, and does stills at 12MP. It also comes with Wifi BacPac and remote. The silver is the same camera (minus size) as the hero 2, but it also comes with wifi BacPac and remote. The white is also same camera as hero 2, and doesnt come with anything other than camera and basic mounts. My suggestion to you is get the silver. Other than stills your not gonna shoot in 1440P anyway. At 12fps that is far from Ideal action shot sequences. Even with a class 10 SD card and 64GB of memory you'll get choppy shots or glitchy shots at 1440P because of how fast you are moving on a sled, even in the trees and how many frames you are capturing per second. The camera is just what your looking for though if your taking stills, or timelapse. Hope this helps. WAG

All of the hero 3's have wifi built in, no more wifi backpac. The black is the only camera that comes with the remote. The silver is basically the hero 2 in a smaller body with wifi built in no remote included though. The white is basically the original HD hero not hero 2 in a smaller body 5 MP sensor not the 11 MP on the hero 2 or silver. I bought the black for 1080 at 60 fps, 720 at 120 fps, 30 fps stills and the wifi remote that retails for $79.99. Plus it's supposed to have better low light performance.
