Hi

I have read the entire thread but can't recall a definitive answer. Is the live video out from the Gopro 3 useable for FPV or if that is a requirement is it better to buy a Gopro 2?

Thanks in advance.

Looking at your train video in the video thread didn't led me to think it was so late in the day. This GP3 is great, but the gremlins inside make me stay away from it. Then, the less than 200 $ price on the GP2 is another deterent for the 3.

The H2 is a great camera and well worth a look at sub $200 pricepoint.
The H3 Black has some compelling features though. Low light capabilities are outstanding,
lower distortion lens, and finally a usable 120fps HD mode. Yes the random lockups are
very annoying, but it's still getting the job done for now.

I'm following this thread and saw your tri videos in the park at night, great image quality, will just wait for the cam to be stable. As you said, its really bad for them if they don,t get it fixed soon, the market seems to be overwhelmed with sports camera, and the others don't stop running and are close behind.

go pro hero 3 frame rate slow motion tests

Go Pro Hero 3 black edition frame rate slow motion test (0 min 57 sec)

i recorded video over the same area using different recording modes with go pro hero 3 black edition

480 p 240fps
720p 120fps
1080p 60fps
1080p 30fps

slowed down to 10% normal speed using cyberlink power director 11
rendered at 1080p 30fps for youtube

you can see in the video the benefit of the high frame rates when doing slow motion with the go pro 3 black edition.

filmed from my quadcopter

Here is the product link: http://www.flytron.com/camera-transm...-av-cable.html
Is this cable supposed to work with the frame for the Hero 3?

I picked up a hero3 silver . I have a hero2 as well. I took both cams to work where I have a milligram scale .

Without protective case :

Hero2=97.65gram
Hero3=75.12gram

With protective case including quick-release clip and the bolt and rubber vibration damper:

Hero2=189.98gram
Hero3=177.23gram

Its too bad the protective case for the 3 weighs more than the case for the 2

A bunch of that is probably in the new flat glass. It's a lot larger.

Playing around with WVGA 240fps mode, just for fun of it.
Slow Motion Slinky and Ball Drop - Hero3 Black 240fps. (1 min 12 sec)


This is a not a really high speed camera, so the trick is
to find slow motion subjects that are fast.. but not too fast.

It's no worse than the Hero2 which is quite a bit better than the original HD.
