Off course, but i think is a bug! Today no camera needs a card reader to tranfer files!

Most photographers use a card reader because they can be much faster (Expresscard, Thunderbolt, Firewire 800, USB 3) and also do not run down the camera's battery..For whatever the reason cameras don't transfer files as quickly. (There may be exceptions that I am not aware of.) A card reader also lets you keep using the camera while files are being transferred. In the case of CF cards they are often optimized in various ways for maximum speed and need the latest matching card reader to keep up.(Some SD cards may be similar too.)

This site does very comprehensive tests which is beneficial for those trying to maximize writing speed. But I suspect there are now some newer and faster readers. You can see it varies a lot depending on the card and reader.

I don't know if the GoPro lets you transfer files via wifi, but that too is going to be slower.

So anyone using the new android app having difficulties with teh preview? With the new firmware on my GP3 blk and the older app, I had preview (with 3s lag of course). However, after updating, the preview is just showing black. Supposedly the updated app was supposed to cater better to the black.

Thank you! I am using the Canon T2i with a 50mm 1.8f lens. It is hard mounted to a plate that has dampeners and I think the arm helps eliminate some vibrations as well.

Did some shooting with the Hero3 BE today. Was using it on and off an RC car. Shot 1080p60 in Protune using the latest firmware. I had no lockups during charge or use. Haven't had the menu crashes I got earlier either.

for those interested, i installed Bluestacks software, it allows you tu install android APP on your PC, so i connect the pc to the gopro and control it using the gopro app on my pc, now i am reading on streaming using VLC, its working for gopro 2 with backpack, but i dont think its working yet with GP3 black,

btw, the GP3 ip address is 10.5.5.109 if anyone wanted to know.

Hello everyvody,

I have a big big problem with my gopro 3 black, i can't power on anymore.
When i power on, a red light is on on the back of the camera.
I tried to put off the battery 30 sec then many hours but same problem.

I have done the firmware update successfully. The camera restart several times and it was working after this.

Then i charged the camera with a wrong usb cable. It was the keychain 808#16 v2 usb cable.

I wondered if it is only a battery who is dead or the camera.

If i power on the camera without the battery, same problem (red light on)

Any ideas ? I am not far killing me (^^)

When the back red light stays on and it's dimmed, we usually take out the battery and put it back to resolve the problem, since you tried that already, i don't know what you can do other than that, sorry
