Bang Baco: Still don't know what to buy Hero3+ silver or black Ed..pleAse help me
Carlyle's Picks: Silver prosumer black pro? LOL All GoPros are prosumer.
Harley Rider: Great explaination.
Yournayati nayati: Is the remote waterproof?
GoPro sucks! Their slogan “The Worlds Most Versatile Camera” is a joke. I
have had four GoPro Hero 3, all have been defective and produce unusable
video. The following is a recent email from GoPro customer support
acknowledging that they are full aware that their product is defective.
“….Thank you for sending me that video. After reviewing the videos you have
submitted to us, speaking with our engineering contact and revisiting your
earlier cases we have concluded that the flickering you have seen present
in all of the cameras you have had is an effect of the camera adjusting to
dramatic light changes in the frame.
The reason this has been present in your replacements because it is a
behavior that will be present in any of our cameras. As the camera adjusts
to the dark fields of shadows and trees, the moderately lit blue sky, and
the bright white snow it is constantly adjusting to the amount of light in
the frame. The adjustment of the camera to these changes looks dramatic,
but the changes in the amount of light in the frame are dramatic.
Skiing on a sunny day unfortunately produces some of the most challenging
lighting changes of any activity and any conditions. I believe you would
not see this flickering in more stable light conditions with your camera.
This effect is more visible on the HERO3 White Edition, but it will be
present in any of our cameras especially in the conditions that you are
using them in….” GoPro Customer Support
I recommend not to waste your money or time on GoPro prodcuts. They may
have a very large marketing budget and were the one of the first players in
the action camera niche, however their product knowingly full of flaws.
john micallef: GO PRO is and always will be the daddy of action cams..! i have a hero 2HD
ROLI cam. the go pro just kick ass..! but if you are a bit broke or low on
cash the roli is not bad.. and now days there are so many cams out there
but GO PRO will always be the best..!!!
william delgado: quick question the usb cable for the silver is the same as the black
Peter L: hey guys, I am debating between the silver or black editions. I don't need
the extra editing capability but the remote and superview would be nice.
It seems you can do most of the stuff on your phone app that you can do
with the remote. And for the remote to work, you need to leave the wifi
turned on which will drain your battery. Is that correct? I think I can
get a lot of good accessories for the $100 I would save with the silver
Marites Howard: The GoPro Hero 3 is easy to operate in the standard video and photo modes and takes excellent pictures even in less than optimal light conditions.
Leorent Kelmendi: I was confused which one to buy ,finally I got Hero 3 Silver check this
Welcome to Peja's Park | GoPro Full HD
radgiegadgie: Excellent comparison. Cheers!
Boodz G: Excuse me now I need a little bit of help please what should I buy Black or
Sliver please answer me
Miller Time: I guess I'm technology retarted since I have no idea what you are talking
about. ... You need slow down when you speak!!
Alicia Meneses: When I received it I was expecting to have a normal video quality but how WRONG I really was. Quality is just amazing. Just look for the video "MTO On water in Boca del Rio, Veracruz Mexico". There you will be able to see what I mean. Just unbelievable at 1080 Super. I am really happy with this tiny gizmo.
Michael Weston: crapty battery life
LZREAPER: Need help deciding which go pro3+ to go with, i'm looking into the more
dark lite concert type of camera with a decent mic. i wont be editing as
much. PLEASE HELP!
Scott Lincoln: Dude, great vid. Very informative. RevZilla is up and coming!
ocharni: still unsure about the hero 3...lost my hero 2 when the mount broke and
despite the good picture quality the camera itself was buggy as hell. at
times it would just stop recording for no apparent reason. overheating also
was an issue.
currently looking into the garmin virb..got some pretty nice features and
it outperforms the gopro as far as image quality goes in low light as well
as extremely bright situations.
Power Sports: I wanted to know the differences from silver to black edition and this
video was all I needed! Black Edition it is! Thanks for the info!
motive: Awesome review !! Super solid !
Sean .D: BRO, Do you even lift?
Brandon Porhola: I like it!
Itzholmes: I really don't think for an average Joe can't tell the diff between 11&12
mp. Also, I see that the contrast in the black is a bit in the plus side
BUT it is a bit sharper than the silver. So for an average Joe like me
spending that extra $100 and will never use those extra features ......
Nah. Give me silver please !
Kelly Kerwin: I am looking to buy one of the GoPro 3's to film during paintball games,
Any suggestions on which would suit what I am using it for best? I just
don't want to over spend on something that will be over kill for what I am
using it for. Thanks for your time!
Mister Xman: Thanks. That was very informative. I am going to buy a black one in the
next day or two hopefully.
Velotrol daka: AWESOME review, thank you!
kaljuhyypio: Very good indeed, could you do Sony HDR-AS15?
cj09jr: Nice comparison and review....one of the best I've seen.
Steven Wyatt: Useful review, thanks. Does it support external power source, i.e. wire it
into the bike rather than battery?
kingofsteezyness: Which one do you think would work better for making freestyle skiing edits?
Callum au: you got it wrong, its actually 120fps in 1080 and 240fps in 720 on the
black and 60fps in 1080 and 120fps in 720 for the silver
SilviaSchool: Great review, thanks. Just bought the silver ed.
RevZilla: While the newer GoPros are several big steps forward in this regard, they
are still at an overall disadvantage for low-light conditions. They are
automatically adjusting your ISO as you shoot, so you'll end up with some
grainy footage if you force the ISO into overdrive with low light
conditions. Again, better than the last generation, but not great
recommendation if indoors or low-light is your primary use. -CK
mitchell2820: i love go pro!
RevZilla: The curvature was so slight on the Hero2, I can't imagine at high speeds
there will be a huge difference in water droplet migration between the 2
Drew Sherwood: I just purchased a silver and the remote is not included.
RevZilla: Awesome! Keep us posted on how you like it. We are very impressed with both
new versions. ~Ali
RevZilla: GoPro has a number of options that you can purchase separately, aside from
the 3M mounts and included hardware. I would recommend the Handlebar Mount
Kit or Suction Cup mount as excellent solutions. -CK
TheKyraPennington: Is this waterproof and what mount would you recommend for Wakeboarding??
john doe: man I had to watch this vid 3 times to keep up with wat this dude was
saying..you talk too fast...
RevZilla: Yes, there is an auto, but it can be overridden with the manual presets. -CK
Marcelo oow: both are waterproof? or not?
Vegan Daddy: Dude..just check amazon...like THOUSANDS of 1 stars...its a crap
boix....they havent worked out the bugs..yet know that Gopro fanboys, like
rockstar fanboys, and metal mulisha fanboys will just buy them no matter
what. Get the white...its best
Nacho Diablo: yes actually u can make really cool vids with even gopro hero 2 with sony
vegas or some othe editor. ofcourse it will never be as good as the black
but you can make awesome 1080p HD vids with the silver allso. if u have the
money, buy the black. if u dont, just go with silver or white or even the
hero2. they are all good atleast with some final editing =)
RevZilla: It all depends on what you are planning to use it for. If you are just
looking to record the ride and have some fun with the footage, the Silver
will do. If you have any professional aspirations or mad skills with Final
Cut Pro, I would spring for the Black. -CK
Luka Raskovic: Revzillatv do you have any problems with gopro , like freezing , not
recording etc ? I want to buy one but wont do it if it has problems
jjj5278: The silver version does NOT come w/ the remote. The remote only comes in
the package w/ the Black version.
alpinab14: wow listening to this review is amazing how technology is moving forward
and how far it has come even in the last few years, some really awesome
stuff out for 2013 the best yet by far
Kristofer Rose: I bought the Silver Edition and absolutely love it - perhaps one of my best
buys I've done. However on retrospect I think it really would have been
worth me splashing that little extra cash to get the Black Edition just for
that little bit better picture, resolution, Wi-Fi remote etc. I tried the
App to preview my recordings and it was quite laggy and slow to watch and
the the connection was only good for 20ft
