I've yet to read where the Hero3 had OIS? Have a link that confirms this?

As a point of fact, with the right codec, color correction in post is a minimally destructive action.

The gopro is cheaper, lighter, has a higher bit rate, come with waterproof enclosure, a vibrant community, and firmware updates. If my goal was still photography then it might not be the best choice, but that's not what I'm after and go pro seems to be the only game in town at this form factor, features, and price range. Heck if I were a professional the price of the gopro would make it a "no brainer" to have in my tool chest,

The better the color correction tool has a lot to do with that too. If you color in apple color or davinci, less degradation of video than per say a filter based software like magic bullet.

The stabilization mentioned there is with Cineform the way I read it, not in the camera.

I think your right. Either way 2.7k is a perfect playing field for post stab played back at 1080

I agree it will help for post stab but as best I can tell there is none in the camera itself.

Actually, we tested it with normal, active and off, and the best footage we saw was with it being off.

Take care

Yeah, referring to the RX100.

Haven't seen anything about OIS with the GP3. The manual doesn't mention it at all.

Can you use the Go Pro H3 for fpv and record at the same time? I heard not.

Do you need an adapter to connect to your fpv? The H3 uses a mini HDMI to standard HDMI connector.
