Has anyone compared the GP3 to their NEX 5N, GH2, Sony CX760v, Canon DSLR, etc? Really curious to see how it stacks up against those "pro-sumer" cameras

None of those cameras will fit on most types of FPV aircraft, so I don't really see
the point of comparing them here.

The Nex-5 was on my list for my Hexa, then came this GoPro 3, i would be curious about it.

I agree that for the majority it wont make a difference, but i would like to see it.

Day 4.5 with the GoPro 3, and I've found myself loving it like a little baby. I put it to sleep, feed it (with electricity), change its diaper (dump all video files on pc) and even put it in its crib (case).

This thing is awesome. My wish for the GoPro 4 is interchangeable lens.

Only lockup I had was when it was off and charging. Took it off USB and the charge light was still on. Required battery removal but worked fine afterwards

That happens every time I charge the battery. (two different batteries, neither overheating as suggested earlier)

I have the same issue with charging. Light stays on forever, I can leave it charging for hours and the light doesn't go off. When unplugging, light stays on. Battery removal fixes it, but it's a pain not knowing when the stupid thing is fully charged!

I don't understand how they could release this product without knowing about this battery charge problem.

This camera is so improved it's amazing. Another cool thing I have noticed is on the GP2 when you would use medium or narrow the camera noise increased a lot but on the new GP3 black I have not noticed this.

Also when you use 2.7K the files won't play in windows or make a thumbnail. I thought they were corrupt files at first but last night when I put them into Sony Vegas11 and AE CS6 the worked fine.
