I almost pulled the trigger on the Sony action cam, then held off because there is no rotatable lens, 60 and 120 fps are slo-mo output, and no sound or steady shot at the faster fps.

For $400 can't say I see a lot here either, but at $199 the white edition is better than a regular gopro1 or 2 I guess, because of the smaller size etc.

Really? 1080p 60fps is enough to make me want the black edition!
I bought my GoPro1 the week they came out, and despite falling from 100's of feet on multiple occasions it still works as well as the day it arrived!
Sounds like a good investment to me!

Yes the 1080 60p is a plus alright, although with my 50" plasma tv being only 720p it has not been as attractive an option as 120p on 720.

I just (finally) pulled the trigger though on a NEX-5N, which with the price drop was only $80 more than the GoPro3. Apples and oranges I know, but the NEX-5N is a whole lot of camera for $478, and my Exposure can carry one easily. If I ever get the nerve to send it up..

You're right the NEX-5N is a beauty!
If there was any plane I'd be comfortable sending an expensive camera up on it would be one of Mikes designs that's for sure.
Here's the GPH3 promo vid. Makes me want one.

Lens port looks flat. Looks like they finally decided to fix the underwater focus issue.

The GoPro has had a new replacement "Dive Housing" with a flat lens port ever since the release of the GoPro HD2.

Oh, its an optional extra though.

Its kinda funny and painful to see them copy that idea from third party manufacturers.

They deserve a bit of a face palm when you see these alleged "experts" if the field of sports camera design offer that blurry mess of a curved lens cover in the earlier versions, and still provide it as the standard supplied case in the modern Hero HD2.

So a flat lens port is FINALLY as standard it would seem.
How is the lens? Did they finally get their s**t together regarding the lens or will it need to be user replaced too?

I read where they had a Narrow, Wide, and Ultrawide. I did notice in the promo vid that the fisheye was not nearly as pronounced in some of the shots. I am trying to get some of the 12MP stills it produces to see if it remains sharp out to the edges, (unlikely) but for the SAR work we do, it could be completely sufficient and would extend my "in air" search time by cutting weight.
