Anyone else need a Hero3 Black? I have no sales tax here so it'll just be cost of shipping and $399.99 for the camera. I just shipped one off to a guy in Denmark and as long as you'll cover the shipping (and fees so I'm not out), I'll get one off to you too.

Again, why are you slowing down, already extremely slow frame rate video?

Yep! If you want a slow down and only intend to upload in 720 anyway, using the 720p 120fps mode would make much more sense

it looks so much better than 720 even downsized. it was only a test to see what would happen and took a lot of experimenting. to try and render to 4k each time would have taken days.

Made my own version of lens protecton. I used electrical tape, velcro, and attached it to "the frame". It will be used for FPV.

Nicely done on the lens protection but I have to admit, with a $400 camera I'm keeping mine in it's protective case! I'm such a wuss

The case weights as much as the camera. I'm trying to use the least weight possible.

Hi all guys,

This is my first time posting here. I've reading all the thread bc I love gopro and thinking buy the Black Edition soon.

But what I want to contribute with, a little off-topic perhaps, is my experience with the jello effect. One year trying everything and finally got the method to permanently remove any sign of jello from the GoPro Hero I use.

I use a Jakub stabilizer and tryed all types of foams to attach the camera but the jello always was there. Finally, after many and deep brain acts , decided to suspend the camera without touching with anything that could transmit any vibrations. Used for this two wide rubber bands and a single vertical aluminum plate attached by its ends to the stabilizer. The shape of this aluminum "frame" is just for this stabilizer but I think other shapes work the same. Even with the jack plugged to the camera the wibrations have disappeared.

I hope it can be useful anybody . Attached images to explain what I did.

Good luck!

From where did you purchase the frame? They don't seem to be available on GoPro's site or at B&H Photo.

BTW B&H had a 2 year "Drop and Spill" damage warranty for $60. It made sense to me for a camera that would be flown by a rookie pilot.

the lens replacement kit for the gp3 is not available yet. you have to use the one that comes with the cam and take it off the case

Would you be able to provide the weight of that case? I just took my lense cover off and did the same thing, but man i just cant think of it hanging on to my quad with some velco, and would like to keep it in a case. But the plastic on is so heavy.
Anyway looks nice in the frame case.
