In 4 1,

My wife wanted one to mount to the car. She is from Russia where they typical have these mounted as "evidence". Americans have laughed at the idea, and I kind of did too, until she got into a terrible accident with no witnesses recently and now we are wishing we had one to prove she was not at fault.

The Hero 3 Black Edition recently saw a firmware update on April 3, 2013. It is more stable now. As for the stop recording randomly, it appears that this has to do with ProTune on and the microSD memory card not having sustained writing speed. See here on the discovery: http://goprouser.freeforums.org/t...12096.html
I recently bought a black edition and after updating the firmware, no issues at all.

Correct me if I'm wrong but

White = Hero 1
Silver = Hero 2
Black = newest version

So a silver one is a Hero 2 with integrated wifi and smaller package

You are, more or less, correct.

The Black is the new one, new video processor, much better low light performance.
The Silver is a Hero 2 with Wifi, Smaller size and Dive Housing.
The White is a Hero 1 with Wifi, Smaller size and Dive Housing.

To note it isn't some cheesy "software" limitation on the cameras, the hardware is different on all 3 models. The Dive Housing is important to mention since the GoPro Hero 2 housing that is included has the rounded lens which goes in and out of focus under water. Not a problem with the 3.

when i run mine on USB power, it gets really, really hot. A couple of times it's turned itself off due to overheating I think. Does anyone else experience overheating when running via USB power? (HERO3 Silver from same seller when it was $229).

Does it not charge when in use via USB power?

Got this well reviewed pair of batteries, with plug in charger, and car charger for $22 shipped Prime.

Why do so many Russian videos exist from car mounted cams? And so many combating. Are there no cops there? Lots of hit and runs it seems too.
Free for all law there?

Thats a great idea. But how would you know that you are going to get in an accident, so you can turn on the camera? I don't get it? Do you turn it ON before you start driving? what if you are driving like 3-4hrs batteries wont last that long, would they?Confused

Also lets you capture meteors which makes it well worth it.

I have an H3 BE - and the resolution is GREAT! I waited a few months before I made the purchase, and the factory firmware was from mid-march.

So far - I haven't had an issue with it, and with the latest firmware, it appears solid. I tend to record my bike rides (especially commuting bike rides) for my own safety.

Now if this was only a black I could add a second one!

Quote from trackerjd View Post :
The Black version is about twice as good as the silver version when you compare what fps rate it can record at versus the silver. The black version is the only one capable of 60hz 1080p video and even higher resolution video up to 4k at 12 fps.

It's a shame the black version is having bugs, I am going to wait for a sale on it and just deal with having to send it back for a replacement a couple time if I get a dud. Otherwise wait until the latest revision.

are the supports included sufficient for mounting this to the wheel wells of my car ? what about inside onto the windscreen of an S2000 between the headrests ? if not, what parts do I need, and how much are they ?

i'm not that techy, but can you frame your shots with the wifi app even if you are in a remote area (e.g., middle of ocean) where I dont usually get a signal on my smartphone?

Yes, the GoPro app uses a ad-hoc connection to the camera.

One odd thing to note, is that there is a bit of a delay with the camera and app.

iPhone/IOS - about 5 seconds.
Android - about 2-3 seconds.

One other thing to note is that having WiFi on does shorten the battery life - and from what I've seen - a LOT!

are these light enough that those cheap $40 RC helicopter can carry it?
No way. Too heavy.

Cheapest way is to get an 808 keychain camera ($8-40 depending on version). They can be carried on quadcopters like the V929 (and larger).

The V959 comes with a camera pre-installed. It may be able to be triggered from the remote. (A similar version from MJX can be).

Hobby King has a wing camera for $30-40 that I just ordered. The quality is higher (HD, 5mp), and it supposedly has motion sensing activation. It's probably the closest thing you can get to GoPro quality, without needing an expensive quadcopter.
